Fuji-Q Highland's "Evangelion World" Opened!
A new attraction called "Evangelion World" including a 1/1 scale bust of Evangelion Unit-01 launched in amusement park Fuji-Q Highland on July 23. Here's the first part of our coverage of the opening day, including life-sized Kaworu Nagisa figure and various props and panels you can take pictures with.

Entrance of Fuji-Q Highland, 9AM.
The "Free Pass" ticket (admission + unlimited use of attractions) costs 4,800 yen ($54).
You need to take picture at this photo booth to print the ticket.
So the "Free Pass" will have your face on it. No cheating (unless you've got an identical twin).
There was already a long queue for "Evangelion World".
There were about 400 people.

The day's event was webcasted live on Ustream.
Convenience store Lawson's booth selling tie-in products.
They're giving away plastic folders for customers who purchased over 1,000 yen.
"Evangelion Store" doubles as the attraction's exit: the usual exit-through-giftshop strategy.

There's a ticket booth for those without the "Free Pass" ticket.
If you're only interested in Evangelion World, you can pay admission fee 1,200 yen at the park's entrance and buy the ticket for Evangelion World here.
So finally, we were able to enter the building. Here's the floor map. The sections called "Eva Studio Gallery" has panels and props set up to take pictures.

You can take pictures like this. Looks like the boy on the left is cosplaying as Shinji...or is it his school's uniform?
You can join a NERV conference here.
Life-sized Kaworu Nagisa.
His face looks a bit different from the anime.
But the plugsuit is quite realistic.
Kaworu is not very tall but has incredibly long legs.

From the inside it looks like this.

Fit your face.
And take pictures.
