Fuji-Q Adds Life-size EVA-02 to Display, Sets up Evangelion-themed Hotel Room

Amusement Park Fuji-Q Highland will be making over its "EVANGELION: WORLD" section, and adding an Eva-themed room to its official hotel.

On the 26th, Fuji-Q Highland announced that they would be performing a makeover on the pavilion "EVANGELION: WORLD", where one can enjoy the world of the popular anime movie "Evangelion". The centerpiece of the made-over pavilion will be a life-size EVA-02 in "THE BEAST" mode, and it will join the life-size model of EVA-01 that is already on display.

In addition, at the Highland Resort Hotel & Spa, the Highland's official hotel, they will open Japan's first ever Evangelion-themed guest room. The concept of the room is set to the theme "produced by the pilot of EVA-00, Ayanami Rei", and there are various original amenities such as a function to hear lines spoken by Ayanami Rei herself. Guests may even wake up to morning calls in her voice.

"EVANGELION: WORLD" is now closed to the public due to this renewal. EVA-02 is expected on the 19th of March, while everything else is expected on the 11th of February. The hotel guest room is slated to be open to the public on the 1st of March.

This the first time I've ever heard of Evangelion world.
But I guess no surprise there. I can see the fans of evagelion going crazy over this guestroom though, but a night at that evagelion guestroom must be really expensive..
