The Nijigen no More amusement park is about to get a massive visitor. Toho's Chief Godzilla Officer, Keiji Ota, announced the inclusion of a life sized Godzilla attraction at the Awaji Island location.

Called the Godzilla Interception Operation Awaji, visitors will be able to zip line into Godzilla's mouth and take on missions to fight the King of the Monsters, including destroying his G-Cells. Toho and the Nijigen no More amusement park released a video prelude to these missions:

Ota released designs for the attraction via concept art and miniatures. Based on the 2016 design from the Japanese Academy Award winning Shin Godzilla - currently Toho's flagship design for the Monster King - Godzilla will run up to 55 meters in length and sit 25 meters in height. Though only so much of Godzilla will be seen, it is the first full scale replica of him to date.




The Godzilla Interception Operation Awaji should be open to the public next summer!

It looks awesome. I just wished that when they said life-sized, they meant the large upright standing menace from the film, and not just the head.

Well firstly yes, I agree that'd be awesome. But second, that would mean constructing a literally building-sized statue of a character who gets a major redesign on a semi-regular basis. And if they used Shin's design that would make it the 4th tallest statue in the world. I love Godzilla, but I just don't see that as a good investment. A life-sized Kamata-kun would probably work much better realistically, but it kinda lacks that iconic look.

Too bad it wasn't Legendary Godzilla's 2019 incarnation

Shin is epic tho

Why would it make sense for the less popular incarnation in Japan to be made into an attraction?

KingKaijuGojira #TeamGodzilla

Nov-01-2019 7:59 AM

I was wondering when they would make a life size Godzilla

Xenotaris #TeamMothra

Nov-01-2019 8:04 AM

They made a Legendary Godzilla statue before so why wouldn't they, Gman you make it sound like Monsterverse Godzilla is Zilla

Gmkgoji #TeamRodan

Shin Godzilla is the Godzilla toho uses for marketing..

Xenotaris,
But they also made a Godzilla Earth statue and a Shin Godzilla statue for the marketing of those respective movies as well. So why does that matter?

The 2016 design is Toho's flagship design. They've used it for the VR ride at Universal Studios, the Godzilla vs. Evangelion 4D movie, they replaced the Heisei Godzilla statue with it in Hibiya, they use it for the official 65th Anniversary logo and they've used it on 3 different posters to promote the Godzilla Store. Why is it surprising that they put more stock into it than the 2019 design, which was far less successful in Japan than both Godzilla '14 and Shin Godzilla?

Wondering or complaining about the Japanese using their Japanese design is kind of goofy. People should be used to it by now.

OPK... that is kind of cool.

Not my personal favorite Godzilla design (I will not miss it when Toho's World of Godzilla design inevitably becomes the new flagship look for Godzilla), but it's still kind of cool that they're doing a "life-size" attraction.
