    Dutch Garden Theme Park In Japan



    Tucked away in Japan's Nagasaki Prefecture, the Huis Ten Bosch theme park features a taste of the Netherlands thru it's canals, windmills, flower gardens, amusement rides, parades, musicals, restaurants, shops, museums, etc. Check out the park's website:
    HUIS TEN BOSCH

    If you're looking for a relaxing scenic vacation, take a canal boat ride through the park's countryside vista via this video link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h0DAJ...eature=related
    Here's A video that gives an overview of the parks rides (most are either virtual reality or Holland themed), entertainment (including fireworks, parades, an flashy illuminated buiding show, and various performers), gardens. restaurants, hotels, etc:
    Huis ten Bosch (Full Version) - YouTube

    Among the major rides are:

    Grand Voyage Theater is the world's largest simulation theater. Be prepared to experience a sea adventure in a seat that rocks in sync to the action on the screen. At one point, there is a rather wet reinactment of the floods of Holland.

    The Mysterious Escher is a 3D musical adventure with motion seats. Think Captain EO. As a matter of fact, the park plans a future tribute to Michael Jackson, who is said to have visited Huis Ten Bosch on several different occasions.

    Flight of Wonder dark ride: a classic Peter Pan type of an attraction with a ride vehicle that hangs from an overhead ceiling track as you travel through a set of scenes that tell a chronological story. The interactive screens tell a the story of a good witch verses a cackly old witch using claymation characters, a castle, etc.

    Fireworks: a brilliant thematic fusion of world cultures

    Cool looking place. Funny to see them having a stunt show of the anime series 'One Piece'.

    Thanx, Atomic Bear. There's a lot of beautiful achetecture and landscape to take in. It would be thereputic just being among the surroundings.

    As for the stunt show, I guess the Japanese thought that the Dutch like anime as much as them.

    Great, Trekkie Dad! Let me know what you think about the park, it's attractions and other offerings. This would be a thing to add in to a trip repaort as well.
