Theme park attraction includes a 15 meter tall Evangelion unit statue and a chance to board the entry plug
Ground-breaking psychological mecha anime series and samurai settings are a strangely compelling combination in Evangelion Kyoto Base, a new Neon Genesis Evangelion-themed attraction that will be open to the public in October of 2020 at Toei Kyoto Studio Park (known in Japan as Toei Uzumasa Eigamura).
The Evangelion Kyoto Base installation boasts a 15 meter (about 49 feet) tall statue of Eva Unit-01 rising from a pool of LCL, a three minute special effects show, unique character goods featuring the Evangelion cast dressed in period costumes, a collaboration cafe with Evangelion-themed food and drinks, and the chance for visitors to ride the Eva Unit's entry plug and test their synchronization rate.
A theme park that reproduces the Edo period of Japanese history for jidaigeki and samurai period films, Toei Kyoto Studio Park is located in Ukyo Ward, Kyoto, Japan. The Evangelion Kyoto Base attraction is scheduled to open there on October 03, 2020.
