Immersive Fort Tokyo

Immersive Fort Tokyo

Redefining theme park entertainment


The world’s first fully immersive theme park just opened in Odaiba, Tokyo, and here is what you need to know. You might be wondering: what is an immersive theme park?

Imagine that you’re placed inside your favorite anime, book or movie. Instead of viewing it from the outside, Immersive Fort Tokyo aims to reposition the audience as active members of the story.

Inspired by theater and live music, each of the 10 attractions has a distinctive theme intertwined with a carefully crafted storyline and set that you can interact with. Some of the attractions are centered around classic European stories like “Sherlock Holmes” and “Hansel and Gretel” and others are inspired by popular Japanese Anime such as “Oshi no Ko” and “Tokyo Revengers.” 

Attractions at Immersive Fort Tokyo

“The Sherlock” attraction spans a huge section of the facility and transports you into 19th-century London. Explore the city’s times square, pub, restaurant, hospital, residential area, and more while standing side-by-side with the performers as they act out the storyline. As you wander the city, you may find yourself in the middle of a crime scene or witness to a piece of the investigation.

Another attraction, “Identity V Immersive Chase,” challenges you to escape a terrifying scenario inspired by the video game. You will be provided with a digital wristband for breaking codes and following clues. Use it wisely, as you must race to escape while avoiding the hunters.  

An unexpected highlight of the theme park is the spectacular performance at “The Cabaret.” Styled like a PG-rated Burlesque lounge, it boasts performers playing saxophone, trumpet and violin, accompanied by live singing and dancing.

You also have an opportunity to join the fun and learn classic dance performances, such as the “Can-Can.” Every performer on stage displays an unprecedented level of talent. Without a doubt, this attraction is truly deserving of its own spotlight.

Other attractions include the horror maze “Jack the Ripper,” drawing inspiration from the chilling events surrounding the infamous London serial killer. You can also wander the Edo period in “Tales of Edo Oiran.” If you’re seeking an adrenaline rush, then stop by “Spy Action!” which places you in the heart of a sting operation conducted by spies who seemingly pop out of the audience.

Aside from exciting attractions, the theme park is also home to several delicious restaurants and shops.
