The Attack On Titan Ride isn’t the first attempt at creating one based on the franchise, with Attack On Titan XR opening up in 2020 but running into problems thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic that shut down the entire world.


Case Closed, AKA Detective Conan, will have four different attractions set up in Universal Studios Japan with ‘Hollywood Dream The Ride’, an escape room, a mystery challenge and a dining experience.

Finally, Hunter X Hunter will have a 4D ride that places attendees directly into a fight between Gon and Hisoka and Sailor Moon will have a brand new chapter in ‘Moon Palace Chapter Deluxe’ for fans of the series to experience!
