These are indoor facilities on a smaller scale to the Nagoya model which will be similar in size to those in the US and Denmark.

Rocket News 24 reports that work is now well underway in the Minato Ward area of the city for the 1 April opening next year.

Commemorative annual passes have gone on sale already via the park’s website but pricing levels for one-day visits have yet to be disclosed.

Called ‘the 1st to play,’ the annual tickets cost around US$160 for adults and over US$120 for children. These tickets allow five unlimited visits and also qualify holders for a peek before it opens to the general public.

The passes also offer a 10% discount on food and drink sold inside the park.

Nagoya isn’t just a one-trick pony with this new facility as it’s renowned for its beautiful castle and the best chicken wings in the country.
