Island Park

By: Christopher Lynagh

Ever get the yen for an amusement park? Remember coaxing your date into The Haunted House all those years back? For some of you perhaps, it was not so long ago! Do you remember standing on tippy toes to make minimum height for the roller coaster? You know the one and if you actually got on, there was always someone in the gang who had heard of one just like it that had a nasty habit of jumping rails.

Okinawa Island Park's roller coaster doesn't offer that particular thrill, though make no mistake, it's a guaranteed eyebrow curler...only please, do schedule lunch accordingly! There are gentler rides too, such as the Coffee Cup and a very traditional looking merry-go-round, complete with mirrors, lights and carved horses that will thrill the little ones as well as the young at heart.

And now, through Japan Update and the Kadena USO, Okinawa Island Park is offering half-price discounts on all rides. Ticket books of ten have now been slashed to a ridiculous 2,500! One ticket gets you one ride; an almost unbelievable offer.

Yes, a day at Island Park offers affordable, fun packet amusement for all ages. Admission is 900 for adults, 300 for high school students and 200 for elementary school students. Children under three gain entrance free of charge. Group discounts are also available.

The three car parks provide space for 530 vehicles, so there is no need to worry about parking. To get to Island Park from Kadena, go straight along Gate 2 street, passing through the four-way intersection and continuing past the large police station to the right. The road becomes tree-lined and stars to rise onto a gentle hill. Soon after, you'll pass Koza Junior High School on your right, at the very crest of the hill. Take the first right on a rather narrow street, and you'll see Island Park on your left. Have a great day at Okinawa's Island Park.
