    Default Nintendo to open more PokéParks!

    I'm really tired at the moment, so I'll post this here now, and hope one of our people can translate the full thing later. For now, just the highlights.

    http://pokeani.com/news/2006_02/02-pokenews28.html

    Basically, the first of these opens in Taipei, Taiwan in June of this year. From the description of it, it'll be much bigger than the one that was in Nagoya. They specifically mention a Ferris Wheel, which I'm pretty sure wasn't in the original one.

    There was? I don't remember seeing one....but then again, everything looked pre-fabricated, so they could've easily put it up between when I left Nagoya and when it opened.

    Translate coursey of excite


    Nintendo etc. clarified that movable amusement park "Pokeparc" that made the pocket monster (Pokemon) a theme was installed in a different country and region five years until 2010 and every years starting with the opening in Taiwan on June, 2006.
    It is a thing with the first time that Theme Park of the character of a Japanese birth overseas advances. It synchronizes with opening the movie to the public and the sale of game software, and it seems to aim at the synergy effect with the contents sales.

    Movable amusement park "Pokeparc" seems to open first of all in Taipei City in Taiwan by the limitation for three months, and to install the attraction such as coasters and Ferris wheels that treat a popular character for children of 5?10, the mini theaters, and the participation type games, etc.
    The lot area in the amusement park is about 40,000 square meters. Thing of expecting one million people to come for period

    Moreover, the thing that another and card game, etc. that telecast the television also put
    the movie of "Pokemon" on the market before holding the amusement park.
    It seems to examine holding such as Shanghai City in the United States, Europe, and China.

    Is "Pokeparc" 18 Japan in March, 2005?It was held for 192 days, September 25 by Nagoya City, and the number of about four million people of those who came was recorded for the period.

    Information origin"Nihon Keizai Shimbun Inc."



    ...Hope there will be one in the Gold coast =O
    Returned, after many years...

    I always said that the way the Pok&#233;Park was set up indicated that it was both probably going to return and furthermore, travel further than Japan.

    Looks like I was right, which is great. Even if they only set up the Pok&#233;park in Europe on the continent (probably in Germany) it'd still be easier to visit than in America or Asia so i'd definitely be making my way across.

    Although a UK setup isn't THAT farfetched but I can imagine it being more difficult in general to get much attendance in Europe outside of the mainland.
