The stillness inside the chapel can feel strange, but it’s the perfect opportunity for silent prayer.

The park’s peace and quiet might be best cherished inside the Fantasy World’s chapel, found inside the third castle along the quadrangle. It doesn’t have a resident priest, pulpit, or a gilded altar, but its pews are still well-maintained, all facing a humble cross and a sculpture of the Ten Commandments and an open-faced Bible at the front.
You can utter a short prayer to bless a friend or a family member, or to ask for the continued construction of the amusement park. Who knows, they might just be answered in a few years’ time.
