Starting January 19, Final Fantasy is getting a roller coaster at Universal Studios Japan called Final Fantasy XR Ride.


The limited-time ride is part of Universal Studios Japan’s yearly Cool Japan event.

The Final Fantasy XR Ride is a VR-enabled roller coaster—in short, it is Space Fantasy The Ride repurposed with VR headsets.

Final Fantasy XR Ride ends its run on June 24.

If Konami’s mobile division were doing this, they could offer the ride for free and charge for in-app purchases like seat belts and head restraints.
