At Space Fantasy – The Ride, you can also purchase a special map at the mobile cart and embark on your own training journey throughout USJ. Details about what the training entails are vague at the moment, but they’re unlikely to be gruelling as the one Tanjiro went through.

A Demon Slayer collaboration will also be happening at the Hollywood Dream – The Ride, an existing outdoor roller coaster in USJ that allows its riders to choose a desired ride soundtrack from an available selection. There are 2 parts to this collaboration.

From 17th September 2021 to 7th November 2021, there will be a special soundtrack featuring conversations between Tanjiro and Rengoku. You’ll feel as if they’re taking the roller coaster with you as they marvel over the ride.

Details of the 2nd part of the feature, which will happen from 8th November 2021 to 13th February 2022, have yet to be released.
