Godzilla the Ride: Giant Monsters Ultimate Battle (ゴジラ・ザ・ライド 大怪獣頂上決戦[a],   Gojira za Raido Daikaijū Chōjō Kessen), or simply Godzilla the Ride (ゴジラ・ザ・ライド,   Gojira za Raido), is a flying theater motion simulator ride located in the Seibuen amusement park in Tokorozawa, Saitama, Japan. Up to 70 guests are placed at the center of a battle between Godzilla and King Ghidorah.[1] It opened on May 19, 2021, in conjunction with the park's grand reopening.[2] The five-minute[1] ride film is directed by Takashi Yamazaki, who previously directed Godzilla in the 2007 film Always: Sunset on Third Street 2, in partnership with Shoichiro Tsuno of Katana Marketing and Entertainment Co., Ltd.

Description[edit | edit source]

Built on a small hill seen from the shopping area of a Tokyo street sits a movie theater loved by the people of the city. The everyday peace of life as usual is disrupted when a mysterious giant creature, King Ghidorah, suddenly appears in Tokyo.

King Ghidorah moves toward Saitama, knocking down buildings in its path. Then, an emergency broadcast announces that another giant monster is approaching.

The park guests are instructed to get into the deluxe armored vehicles of the "Special Disaster Countermeasures" (特災対,   Toku Wazawai Tai) response unit. But, when they are caught up in the unbelievable fight between Godzilla and King Ghidorah, will they be able to escape to safety?[2]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The King Ghidorah design used for this ride closely resembles the MonsterVerse incarnation in body shape and its tendency to walk quadrupedally at times. Its facial features resemble Cretaceous King Ghidorah.
    • This is also the first on-screen King Ghidorah to feature hands.
  • The Godzilla design used in the ride resembles something of a combination of the MonsterVerse Incarnation and Heisei design, having a stance and general shape close to the latter with the former's skin texture and dorsal spines.
    • This is the first time Godzilla has sported an original design for a theme park appearance, with all prior showings reusing designs from the contemporary movies.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. Godzilla the Ride: Giant Monsters Ultimate Battle's Japanese title is rendered in marketing using the outdated spellings 怪獸 and 決戰 for kaijū and kessen, respectively. The former was notably used by Toho during the 1950s, such as on marketing materials for the 1954 Godzilla and in the title of Rodan.
