What is Beppu Rakutenchi?

Beppu Rakutenchi is an amusement park located in Beppu. The park is located at a high altitude, which allows you to overlook Beppu Bay and Beppu City. Inside the park, in addition to such attractions as a Ferris wheel and roller coaster, there are hot spring facilities and an area where you can interact with animals. A pool is open during the summertime, and lots of families come here. Operating hours are from 9:30 AM to 5:00 PM, and from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM in June and December.

Entry fee

At Rakutenchi visitors need to pay an additional entry fee besides the attraction fee. The entry fee price differs depending on the entry gate. There are two gates, the main gate is on the sea side and the Otobaru Gate is on the mountain side. The main gate is located at a lower altitude so visitors have to take a cable car in order to get into the theme park. The fee is 1300 yen for adults, high-school age and older, and 600 yen for children between 3 years old and middle- school age. If visitors enter the amusement park through the mountain side gate, they do not need to take a cable car, so therefore the entry fee is 1100 yen for adults, and 500 yen for children, which is slightly cheaper than the other gate. Also, attraction fees differ depending on the attraction.
