In Japan's aging society, amusement parks are struggling to stay in business.

Yomiuri Land in Tokyo is drawing visitors to a new attraction that combines the thrill of carnival rides with the fun of learning about how products ranging from automobiles to foods and stationery are made.

The ¥10 billion attraction lets visitors take part in the manufacturing process by operating machinery and assembling parts. They can put together a car and learn how notebooks and fried noodles are made.
