About the Area Info Box

Main Street is the first area at the start of the park. It is reminiscent of Disneyland in California and The Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World in Florida. There is an elevated train station with a tunnel on the left and right that lead in to Main Street. Once inside, there is a town square featuring a carousel, and shops buildings around it.

On February 20, 2010, the left side of Main Street burnt down. It was rebuilt and reopened for the 2011 season. Although modernized, the recreations have many design elements from the originals.

Food and Drink



Restrooms are located between the entrance gate and the right tunnel, next to the Giant Sky Wheel, inside Iowa Cafe and inside the Main Street Arcade. (The ones inside the arcade are the nicest, followed by Iowa Cafe.)
