A Conceptual Spa Themed Amusement Park In Japan

January 4, 2017


This is a commercial for a conceptual spa themed amusement park in Beppu, Japan. Beppu is a spa resort town in Kyushu and has over 2,000 hot springs. For reference, I have one cold shower that gets lukewarm between the hours of 2 and 3:15PM. Maybe I should move to Beppu. Enter the Spamusement Park Project, a conceptual spa themed amusement park proposed by the city. In the video, Beppu Mayor Yasuhiro Nagano claims they'll make the park a reality if the video reaches over 1,000,000 views, which it already has. So I guess we'll wait and see if Beppu is going to put their money where their mouth is, or if that mouth is just full of marketing lies and soapy bath water. I'm betting on the latter, but this is Japan we're talking about though so I could be eating my words. And, much more difficultly, a bar of bath soap with hair in it and a rubber ducky (I like to challenge myself).

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to idleNomad, who's really hoping for a centrifuge where they spray soapy water at you while you're stuck to the wall.

  • I've never been to a spa so I have to ask" do people actually wear towels in the water at them? Or was that just added to the commercial to give the park a 'spa' feel rather than a 'bathing with strangers in dirty water' feel?

    Anyone who is comfortable walking around in a towel like that in public should be shot. That's all I have to say on this.

    what? no bubble bath?...im out

  • I'm fully in. Even the part where peoples used bath water sprays on my soft serve... all of it. I want that ramen bath too.

  • YES!!!!

  • PUNX

    gross you still gonna eat that ice cram after it got splashed with other peoples bath water.

  • Doc Fresh

    Welp doesn't look like the water is changed out and I don't think little girls should be around guys with towels on ... not right at all ..

  • TheQiwiMan

    Dumb and gross and dumb.

  • The_Wretched

    Adding hundreds and thousands of pounds of water to amusment park rides not necessarily designed for the load...what could possibly go wrong?

  • Jenness

    First drowning victim on a roller coaster in 3.....2.....

  • Jason Christopher

    I know this isn't too terribly different than a water park, but this just seems like another level of gross for some reason.

  • MustacheHam

    Probably because bathing is commonly a private business and sharing the experience seems a bit taboo if you're not used to public bathhouses.

  • Big Dog on Krampus

    there's gonna be a lot of tub thumpin' from the guy sitting behind the chick in the coaster if you know what I mean. maybe if he can recover quickly, then he'll get up again before the ride is over.

  • Doog

    I think using the term 'Spamusement' (specifically when written) is going to really confuse some Spam enthusiasts out there who might think they are headed for the vacation of their dreams.

  • Jai Mico

    So you soak in stranger's dirty foamy water ?

  • Jenness

    Yeah, disgusting
