Seagaia Ocean Dome - World’s Largest Indoor Waterpark

The Seagaia Ocean Dome is the world's largest indoor waterpark, located in Miyazaki, Miyazaki, Japan. The Ocean Dome, which is a part of the Sheraton Seagaia Resort, measures 300 metres in length and 100 metres in width, and is listed on the Guinness World Records. It opened in 1993, and visitor numbers peaked in 1995 at 1.25 million a year. Entrance cost was ¥2600 per adult and ¥1600 for children, depending on the season. The Ocean Dome was officially closed on October 1, 2007 as part of a renovation and partial re-branding of the resort. The renovations were completed on November 13th, 2009, and the dome has been reopened. Since the reopening of the waterpark, the amount of customers has nearly doubled, and the price has increased to ¥3000 per adult and ¥2000 per child.

The Ocean Dome sports a fake flame-spitting volcano, artificial sand and one of the world's largest retractable roof, which provides a permanently blue sky even on a rainy day. The air temperature was always held at around 30 degrees celsius and the water at around 28.
