Rubik’s Cube Competition

During free time, we invite you to try a Rubik’s Cube Time Attack. Participation is free, and anyone can try it as many times as they like. If you can solve one side perfectly (*1) or all 6 sides, please give it a shot 😊

Perfect 1 side

(*1) It refers to the state in which all one face is the same color, and the part that touches the face is also the same color. It’s for beginners. Those who can solve 6 sides cannot participate in this time attack.

Paint Pumice Stone

Using free time, you can paint pumice stones picked up from Teruma Beach in front of the venue. Free to join. Please join with your family 😊

About the Venue

BBQ Teruma is Okinawa’s largest barbecue theme park, just opened in October 2021. Using fresh ingredients carefully selected from the barbecue grill market, you can choose from live clams and spiny lobsters right out of the tank, and have them prepared by a Yakiniku Chef for easy grilling. Feel free to enjoy with your family while there is free time during the chess tournament 😊
