A one day pass to the amusement park can costs around 10,900 yen (£59), meaning the bill for tickets alone would have cost upwards of £70,000
And this isn't the first time Ken has treated his staff.
Griffin spoke at the celebrations, before introducing Maroon 5.
'Today, the range of talent we have brought together is simply astonishing. We've created not one, but two firms at the forefront of the industry.
'Together, we have imagined and built the future of finance,' he said.
Last year, Ken took 10,000 staff and their families to a three-day Walt Disney World trip, including several pop concerts.
The Citadel CEO treated his employees to an elaborate party to celebrate his trading firm Citadel Securities' 20th anniversary and his hedge fund's 32nd anniversary last December.

Putting other bosses to shame, the business mogul also arranged concerts by Carly Rae Jepsen and Diplo to celebrate his firm's success, as well as a performance from one of his favorite bands - Coldplay.
The CEO made sure his guests didn't go hungry while partying, also providing food and drink to staff.
His fund manages nearly $60billion in assets according to the New York Post .
Videos posted to TikTok show employees donning long dresses and heels while they sway to Coldplay's hits and get sprayed with confetti.
TikTok user Abbey C claimed the celebration was 'most amazing party I've ever attended'.
Another user, Anisha, said: 'Citadel won corporate holiday party of the year'.
