Dragon Quest Island Attraction Grand Opening Set for This Week

Dragon Quest Island opening soon

Square Enix and Nijigen no Mori will hold the grand opening of Dragon Quest Island on Saturday, May 15, 2021. The Nijigen no Mori amusement park also started selling tickets for the game-based attraction on its webpage on May 10, 2021. [Thanks, 4Gamer!]

The tickets are available in three different tiers. The regular 3,400 yen ticket will simply let visitors enjoy the main attraction for approximately 2 hours. A sub-quest set at 5,400 yen will add an hour-long bonus test to join Robbin’ ‘Ood’s Merry Men. The most expensive Premium Ticket, priced at a whopping 11,400 yen, will come with an exclusive item set containing an adventure book cover, a neck strap, and a backpack designed after a shield.

The full ticket prices will apply to people ages 12 and up. Minors between the ages of five and eleven will have a reduced ticket price. Those who are four years old or younger can get in for free, provided a parent or guardian accompanies them.

Dragon Quest Island was first revealed in December 2020, with Spring 2021 as its opening window. The attraction was initially slated to open on April 29, 2021. However, a COVID-19 state of emergency enacted in late April 2021 included the Hyogo prefecture, which covered the Awaji island where the Nijigen no Mori amusement park is located. This directly caused the delay of Dragon Quest Island‘s grand opening to a later date.

The Dragon Quest Island attraction on the Nijigen no Mori amusement park in Awaji, Hyogo Prefecture, will be opened on May 15, 2021.
