It is cheaper to arrive in the afternoon and pay for the afternoon entrance, but if you want to get the most of this location I recommend arriving early. There is lots to do and see. The shows are great. And you can try your hand at many things including shuriken (ninja stars) throwing, grilling your own sembei, dressing up in Samurai or Ninja clothes. Almost everything costs extra though, so budget high!
Gotta agree with what another person posted and say that it takes awhile to get to Edo Wonderland, especially when coming from the Tokyo area. I think it may be about a two and a half hour trip, so it's best to wake up early if you want your money's worth. To save money, I recommend going to the tourist information desk at Asakusa Station. You can get roundtrip tickets to Kinugawaonsen and admission for Edo Wonderland for around 6610 Yen. The pass doesn't cover any purchase made in the theme park.
Even though it was a cold winter day, Edo Wonderland was worth visiting. I had a lot of dressing as a detective while my boyfriend was dressed as a ronin. There were activities like ninja star throwing games, sword dueling with staff members, watching a theater performance, and so on. For a small park, there is a lot to do
Takes forever to get there but man was it worth it! Got all dressed up to go and walk around. The food prices are a little high (550 yen for a glass of orange juice). See the shows when you can, they're quite entertaining!
