Japan’s Fuji-Q HighLand amusement park has announced on Wednesday that it will open a new pavilion called “Evangelion: World – Life-Size EVA-01 Construction Project” on July 23. The pavilion will house the world’s first life-size recreation of the scene where the Evangelion anime’s main character Shinji Ikari encounters the Eva-01 unit for the first time. The recreation will have a mockup of the EvangelionÂ unit from the bust up.
The pavilion will also have a life-size cockpit of an Evangelion unit (from where visitors can pay to have their photos taken), a life-size figure of the character Kaworu Nagisa, a video corner, a museum, a studio gallery for taking photographs, and a shop. Fuji-Q HighLand’s website will present the first interim report of the pavilion’s 150-million-yen (about US$1.6 million) construction on May 26.
