Yormuriland isn’t a “theme park,” but it’s a very entertaining collection of “stuff.” This is a most unusual place, as you’ll be able to tell right from the start as you board the gondola at the train station that hauls you up to the park itself, which sprawls out in all directions. (It can be a bit tricky to find your way around Yomiuriland.) The park’s coasters are a bit rough, but mostly fun, thanks to their eccentric layouts (and other unique features). There’s a good assortment of very Japanese walkthroughs and dark rides, as well. But be advised that there’s very little shade here—a summer day can be brutal.
When studying abroad in Japan this was actually one of my Favorite Tokyo Based parks to visit, the combo of a scenic park and oddness made the journey worth it. Bandit is obviously their star attraction and you never know what they'll do to "enhance" the ride but rest assured it'll be fun. While there are many fun odd flat rides, the biggest down fall is that this park probably has one of the worst Wooden coasters in the world that's only saving grace is the humor of the cages on the trains you have to squeeze into to ride. Outside that the Togo stand up or sit down coaster is a very interesting and must experience ride in my book.
I had an absolutely brilliant time at Yomiuri Land but at the same time cannot in good conscience recommend it. The park was empty, like a maximum of 50 people in the entire park empty; that combined with the fact that for your money they have some pretty decent rides is why I had such a good day. Bandit may be old but I really enjoyed the ride which was smooth and very fast, and kept that speed up throughout the ride which seemed to go on forever. Momonga had not aged so well, we actually had to hunt for another 2 people as the standing up train could not go with less than 4 people on it (Ominiously) and it was bumpy and rattly but it was enjoyable and the sitting/standing feature was... different? Overall Yomiuru Land like a Ghost park.
