  • We visited in November 2017 at night after trying the ferris wheel ride on top of Hep Five mall. There were numerous games, but we enjoyed the Umeda Joypolis wild river ride.  more »
  • Do not go there as this SEGA Game Centre has been closed since early May. Tripadviser may consider to remove this attraction from the top spot...  more »

  • This Joypolis by Sega does have a decent set of Claw Machines. I have seen bigger selections, but this one was definitely one of the roomiest. Their main clientele like Hep Five are teenagers. I believe the large space between machines was meant for friends to crowd around and watch. I read a few reviews about the workers, but I understand now. There were two announcers on a microphone narrating anyone winning or anything else going on in the arcade. I took a picture of the UFO Catchers / Claw Machines (uploaded) and they started to talk "someone just took a picture. We are seeing a lot of tourists these days. Tourists think this place is special? I don't know, why they think Claw machines are special, etc. etc." I felt a little uneasy, but I think so did everyone else since the machines around them were empty. I appreciate the claw machine workers coming up to congratulate you or making noise when you win, but I'm not so sure about the two announcers. Maybe that's what the younger generation likes?
  • Very fund good place. Joypolis Wild river is awesome. Strongly recommended. Sega theme park inside HEP FIVE mall, featuring virtual reality rides & old-school gaming consoles. Sega theme park inside HEP FIVE mall, featuring virtual reality rides & old-school gaming consoles.
