The wonder amembo waterside attractions are available only for those older than primary school students’ age plus those taller than 110cm.
Why not put on swimsuits and try the attractions without any anxieties about getting wet! Enjoy a cool summer at the wonder amembo area!
No.18 “Dosukoi Battle”
Let’s have a hand-pushing sumo fight on a 1.2m in diameter sumo ring! The loser will be pushed out of the ring and fall into the water! Do you want to take part in the battle or just see the battle as a spectator? Either way is going to be fun for sure!
No.22 “Cliff Bouldering”
Colorful scaffolds are installed on an inclined transparent wall. (The angle is about 135~180 degrees.) Choose the scaffolds properly, hold the scaffolds tightly, move through the wall carefully, and approach the goal perfectly!
Discuss the strategy with friends, try over and over again and approach the goal!
Many more playful attractions in other areas are waiting for your challenge.
