Yokohama Joypolis (横浜ジョイポリス), later Joypolis H. Factory Yokohama (ジョイポリスH.FACTORY横浜), was the first Joypolis indoor theme park opened by Sega. Alongside the earlier Osaka ATC Galbo, the park was one of the original two locations opened under the Amusement Theme Park concept in 1994, becoming the company's flagship amusement facility during the mid 1990s. It has since been closed permanently and demolished.
Yokohama Joypolis was themed around a conceptual story involving a fictional professor, "Dr. Chrono", and his creation, the "B.U.R.P." (Basic Universal Reflector Prism), a device which, in its physical form, involved the escalators linking the floors of the centre together. "Dr Chrono" was first used for Osaka ATC Galbo and would go on to feature in the other two Galbo locations.
