Fuji-Q Highland Theme Park's Attack on Titan Collaboration Marks 1st Anniversary, Eren's Birthday
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
A new wave of projects are rolling out to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the Fuji-Q Highland amusement park's collaboration with Attack on Titan. Life-size statues of Eren and Levi are appearing as part of the collaboration just in time for Eren's birthday, March 30.
Fans can take pictures with the statues at the park's Grill Kitchen Meat x Meet restaurant and at the collaboration shop. A real-world version of the franchise's 3D maneuver gear is also on display.
Life-size displays of both the franchise's characters and 3D maneuver gear have reappeared at amusement parks and other events in Japan over the past several years. It is unclear if Fuji-Q Highland's displays are new or mark the return of previous statues. Life-size displays of Eren, Levi, and other characters have appeared at locations such as Tokyo Joypolis, Tokyo Skytree, and Universal Studios Japan.
Other new parts of Fuji-Q Highland's collaboration include a food menu, special merchandise available for purchase, and a campaign with the park's Attack on Titan ride. The collaboration menu offers curry, omurice, and three character-inspired drinks. People who order one of the food items receive an acrylic key holder, and people who order a drink receive a character coaster.
In honor of Eren's birthday, the first 500 people who ride the park's Attack on Titan flight simulation ride on March 30 will receive a postcard. The collaboration shop will have a special display of Eren merchandise, and fans will also be able to write birthday messages to the character.
During the promotion period, people who ride the park's Attack on Titan ride while wearing a Survey Corps cloak can receive one of three exclusive stickers while supplies last. People who spend at least 2,000 yen (about US$19) at the collaboration shop can also receive a sticker.
Ongoing parts of the park's Attack on Titan collaboration include a 360-degree virtual reality experience, a partial 1/1-scale version of the Colossal Titan, and a game. The current collaboration launched on April 20, 2017, and it will end on May 6, 2018.
Fuji-Q Highland has been collaborating with anime and manga franchises for more than a decade. Previous collaborations have featured Gundam, Lupin III, Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Black Butler: Book of the Atlantic.
