LaQua Amusement Park
(known as Korakuen Park until 2003)
Downtown Tokyo has its own amusement park located adjacent to the Tokyo Dome, a large baseball stadium. LaQua (pronounced "La-CUE-ah") is small but contains many unique attractions. A 260-foot tall coaster named Thunder Dolphin from Intamin opened in 2003. Its track passes over a large office building and through the center of the world's first hubless, spokeless Ferris Wheel. The wheel was also built by Intamin. The wheel and track for the "Q" in the LaQua logo.
Three coasters have left the park:
Boomerang (1980-1984) was an Arrow shuttle loop. It might have been known by other names.
Jet Coaster (1955-2000) was a small Togo coaster.
Ultra Twister (1985-1997) was a Togo heart-line coaster.
