Watch People Zipline Into Godzilla's Mouth

A life-sized Godzilla attraction will open this weekend at the Nijigen no Mori amusement park on Japan’s Awaji Island.


Last month we checked in to see how it was coming along — pretty good, I thought! What makes the 390-foot-long attraction so unique isn’t that it’s just a one-to-one scale Godzilla head, but visitors can zipline into the kaiju’s mouth.

Just look!

Below is more footage from the attraction’s press preview.

Originally from Texas, Ashcraft has called Osaka home since 2001. He has authored six books, including most recently, The Japanese Sake Bible.


Every time I watch that, I imagine Kenny Blankenship and Vic Romano commenting over it.
