Partners Information: Evangelion XR Ride, a ride attraction based on the popular anime series Neon Genesis EVANGELION, will return to Universal Studios Japan for a limited period only, from Friday 6 July 2018 to Sunday 6 January 2019.
The ride was first launched in 2017 for a limited period. It was the first Eva-based ride attraction and received a high satisfaction rate of 99%, and was highly rated by many guests. The ride enables guests to experience terror and a feeling of excitement with all senses.
In the realistically reproduced world of Evangelion, guests ride in a vehicle which moves unpredictably, escaping from an attacking Angel.
