A roller coaster ride based on Neon Genesis Evangelion is set to be brought back to Universal Studios Japan.

Voted in college to be Most likely to Take Over the World, how to do that however, will require at least Four Evangelions. Thanks for the idea Misato-san!

No, I'm not the roller coaster type, but it certainly sounds cool.

Correct, it's not an actual roller coaster. Fuji-Q Highland has/had an actual Evangelion coaster, and Sega Joypolis had an Evangelion ride which should qualify as a roller coaster.

Nothing hurts more than knowing I'll never be able to ride Evangelion XR You Can (Not) Survive. Like, it's basically just a normal-ass roller coaster with a VR headset, I can't imagine it can be too difficult to recreate using one of those roller coaster simulators with the same video playing on an Oculus or something. It's worse for me because I'm a theme park nut, EPCOT Centre was (or would have been had I ever gone while it was cool) my favorite theme park of all time, and knowing I'll never get to ride the original Journey into Imagination, or Horizons, or Universe of Energy (again, fuck GotG) or experience the brilliant Wonders of Life pavilion is so painful.

That's why I feel it's so important to preserve these experiences, there will be people who will never have the opportunity to ride XR, people who will never even know it existed. I understand the plight of Yui in a way, but clearly on a much, MUCH smaller scale.
I've reached a point where I just generally don't give a fuck anymore. In a good way.

I had a dream theme park idea that that basically is the geek/ counter culture park. Instead of Transformers rides in Universal we get Evangelion. And instead of of splash mountain we would ask Wes Anderson have a ride inspired by him. But of course this is just a dream park
