Diver City Tokyo Plaza is best known as the home of the life-size Unicorn Gundam. However, it will soon be home to another iconic anime’s latest attraction. This time, it will be Ghost in the Shell, as Production I.G. is producing a new VR ride for the mall’s new “hexaRide” attraction area. It’s called Ghost in the Shell Ghost Chaser, and it will use Q-Ride equipment with six-directional movement, and VR headsets.
The ride will last eight minutes, and cost 1,000 yen per person. And of course, it will have Japanese audio. Up to 12 people can ride it at a time. Here’s how the hexaRide official English website describes its story:
This story is set in the Kuzan Republic. The defense minister, who will take part in a meeting of the Next-generation Weapon Coordination Council, has ordered an advance onsite inspection.
Ride participants are tasked with providing escort while securing an inspection route in Public Security Section 9, where Motoko Kusanagi serves as leader.
Riders will use the hexaRide vehicle to enter cyberspace and, serving as a Public Security Section 9 agent, join in an attack on revolutionary movement forces.
The ride will begin service on 2nd November, and another anime-based attraction will follow it. Titled “Attack on Titan: The Collapsed Tower”, the new ride is still “coming soon”.
