Space World (Supēsu Wārudo) is a theme park in Yahatahigashi-ku, Kitakyūshū, Japan. Created in 1990 by Nippon Steel when the company was downsizing its steel plant in the ward, it is currently operated by Space World Inc., a subsidiary of Kamori Kankō. Space World offers a wide variety of enjoyable attractions for the whole family, with a number of events held daily, and Space Camp, Japan's first authentic educational space experience facility.
