Tokyo’s Odaiba district is about to add a new attraction, with a major new immersive theme park experience making its way to the Japanese capital.

Called Immersive Fort Tokyo, the indoor attraction will be situated inside Venus Fort - an expansive shopping venue which closed in 2022 for redevelopment.

Covering 30,000sq m (322,900sq ft), Immersive Fort Tokyo will sit over two storeys, with 12 attractions, some of which involve the audience on a theatrical level as they become involved in situations including treasure hunts and murder mysteries.

“A completely immersive experience that goes beyond a theme park, Immersive Fort Tokyo will open in Odaiba in the spring of 2024,” said the park posting on X (formerly Twitter). “A day spent here is not just an extraordinary day - it is a dramatic day in which your entire life changes.”

Katana - a marketing entertainment firm which has worked with parks such as Universal Studios Japan and Huis Ten Bosch - is working on the project.

“This will be the world’s first permanent immersive entertainment facility,” said Tsuyoshi Morioka, CEO of Katana. “You will be a part of the entertainment.”

In addition to the opening of Immersive Fort Tokyo, the redeveloped Venus Fort will also include a multipurpose arena to open in 2025, which will be able to host sporting events and performances.

Katana’s theme park plans also extend beyond Immersive Fort Tokyo with the company set to open another theme park in the Okinawa Prefecture in 2025.
