By now most of us are sick of the sight of our bedrooms or kitchens, or wherever you've been logging on to work from over the past few months.

Well, a company in Japan is offering people the opportunity to add a little more excitement to their day by giving them the option of working from a Ferris wheel.

The 'Amusement Workation' package is available from 15 October at Yomiuriland just outside of Tokyo, and will set visitors back just 1,900 yen (£13.80) for one person or 3,600 yen (£26.20) for a pair.

Once inside, visitors will have full access to a poolside 'work booth', which comes complete with a table, a choice of chair and Wi-Fi points.

Yomiuriland is offering a co-working package, with access to its Ferris wheel.

What more could you want?

Well, if that isn't enough, the exciting package also includes the option of being able to hop into a Ferris wheel and setting up camp for up to an hour - enough time to fire off a few emails or hold a Zoom call with some colleagues.

After you've logged off for the day, if you pay a little extra, you can then wind down with a quick game of laser tag, take a spin in the Go-Karts or jump on a rollercoaster called Bandit.

While it's not compulsory to wear a mask during our trip, it's strongly advised that all visitors do so.


If you like the idea of more traditional amusements, Universal Studios Japan recently revealed that Super Nintendo World will be opening in spring 2021.

Announcing the news on its official website, the Osaka theme park didn't specify the exact date.

The park has been finished for a while now but the opening was postponed indefinitely - until now.

Universal Orlando Resort tweeted some 'key visuals' from the Mario Cafe & Store, which will open outside the park on 16 October, just to get you in the mood:

If Japan is a bit of a trek for you, a Super Nintendo World is also being built at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Studios Orlando.
