16:00 Map: 9TOKYO DOME CITY ATTRACTIONS

Tokyo Dome City Attractions is an amusement park in the heart of Tokyo. Admission is free; only an individual fee is charged per attraction. In the interactive role-playing game MagiQuest, the player—a wizard called a Magi—is given a magic wand and embarks on a quest for items hidden in the kingdom. The aim is to continue “leveling up” and attaining the status of the ultimate wizard, Master Magi. Although the time limit is 60 minutes, the adventures thus far are recorded in the magic wand, so the game can be resumed where the player left off even on another day. Accessories are also available for decorating the wand and helping the player grow into the role. Other all-weather attractions include the virtual ride video Tokyo Panic Cruise and the shooting ride The Dive.
