Last year, we uncovered that you can zip-line into Godzilla’s mouth on Awaji Island in the Hyogo prefecture of Japan. It seems Japan is still going strong with their Godzilla attractions, for they are introducing a new theme park ride featuring the king of monsters in the Seibuen Amusement Park, which is located near Tokyo in Saitama prefecture.

Different from the zip-line attraction on Awaji Island, Seibuen’s new attraction, officially named Godzilla: The Ride, seems to be a seated indoor dark ride. Although details about the ride have still not been made public, the key visual released so far for the attraction seems to imply that riders will be immersed in a grand battle between Godzilla and its nemesis, the three-headed monster King Ghidorah.

The Seibuen Amusement Park has been closed for renovations since last November, and will reopen on 19 May. Seibuen will feature a large-scale replica of the shopping street from Japan’s Showa era (1926-1989). At the end of the street is where the king of monsters lies in wait — the world’s first permanent Godzilla theme park ride.

No matter what the ride will be, Seibuen guarantees it to be a “thrilling” and “unprecedented shocking experience,” the “ultimate entertainment that will engulf you in a whirlpool of transcendent excitement!”
