Ice skating and snow park at Seibu Amusement Park
December 21, 2019 @ 10:00 - March 1, 2020 @ 20:001200Yen
Snow Park Seibuen – I am absolutely delighted to announce that the really popular snow kingdom is kind of back this year! After a year hiatus. Last year, it disappointed many that the annual snow kingdom was discontinued and replaced with an outdoor skate rink. This year, they are re-introducing parts of snow kingdom with a seasonal outdoor rink.
The new attraction is called “winter wanpaku hiroba“. It will have the ice rink, sledges, snow play, trampolines and bouncing castles. It proves to be a really good alternative to the once beloved snow kingdom.
Snow Park – Winter Wanpaku Hiroba
The winter park will start on Saturday December 21st 2019 and run until March 1st 2020. From December 21st to January 6th the park is open every day from 10 am to 4 pm.
As in previous years the winter seasonal attraction is closed most (but not all) Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. You can see a detailed calendar of hours on the official website here.
Children must be over 4 years old to use the rink. For children aged between 4 and 6 years old an adult must accompany them on the rink. No smart/phones, cameras, videos, food or drink allowed on the rink.
Snow Park Cost
It costs 1200 yen per child to enter the Winter Wanpaku Hiroba plus the entrance fee into Seibu Amusement Park. Adults cost the entrance into Seibuen. It costs 300 yen to rent skates. You can also rent snow trousers, wellies and sleighs for 500 yen each.
