The Seagaia Ocean Dome (シーガイアオーシャンドーム Shīgaia Ōshan Dōmu?), was one of the world’s largest Polynesia-themed indoor waterpark, located in Miyazaki, Miyazaki, Japan.

The Ocean Dome was officially closed on October 1, 2007 as part of a renovation and partial re-branding of the resort.

The Ocean Dome sported a fake flame-spitting volcano, artificial sand and the world’s largest retractable roof, which provided a permanently blue sky even on a rainy day.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
