A Neon Genesis Evangelion escape room heavily featuring Kaworu Nagisa will appear in Japan from April 28, 2023. You’ll be able to experience it at the Tokyo Mystery Circus theme park, and it’ll use the actual city of Shinjuku as the “room” in which you solve puzzles in. The title of the Evangelion escape room will be “The Mysterious Spy and Legendary Host.” [Thanks, Famitsu!]
This escape room event is part of the Evangelion Kabukicho Impact that Tokyu Kabukicho Tower is hosting. You’ll take on the role of a newbie detective at Seven Detective Agency. At Ryoji’s request, you’ll be searching for a mysterious box that’s being transported through illegal means. Kaworu will not be a detective but rather, a legendary host, who you will run into as part of your investigation.
Aside from the normal ticket, you can also get a Kaworu Nagisa VIP Ticket. This will come with an original drink bottle and a bromide of Kaworu. This ticket will also give you access to an extra mission mini-game, with more details forthcoming. There is no time limit for the event, though it will take an estimated two hours to complete. Tickets are available from April 8, 2023 for normal guests. Normal tickets cost 2400 JPY ($18.10) if you book in advance and 2700 JPY ($20.35) the day of. For those who want the Kaworu Nagisa VIP Ticket, it’ll be 12,400 JPY ($93.45).
The Neon Genesis Evangelion escape room featuring host Kaworu will start from April 28, 2023.
