Yomiuriland’s new Jujutsu Kaisen event collaboration
Yomiuriland, Tokyo’s popular amusement park, will be having a new collaboration event with Jujutsu Kaisen from 27th March to 5th May 2021. During this period, you can head down to Yomiuriland and go on rides decorated with posters of the hit anime series, grab a character-themed drink, and rack your brains with a special mystery game.
Jujutsu Kaisen themed rides
During the event period, 3 attractions will be furnished with Jujutsu Kaisen decorations. They are the ferris wheel, roller coaster, and merry-go-round.
On board the Jujutsu Kaisen-themed ferris wheel, you can get a bird’s-eye view of the entire amusement park. If the weather is clear, you can even spot the faraway Mount Fuji. Tickets are priced at ¥800 (~USD7.36) per ride, and children below the age of 5 must be accompanied by an adult.
Meanwhile, the 28-seater roller coaster Bandit decorated its starting point with huge Jujutsu Kaisen posters too. Fun fact: this was the fastest roller coaster in the world when it was built in 1988. Each ride costs ¥1000 (~USD9.19), and you must be taller than 120cm and be at least 6 years old to be eligible for the exhilarating experience.
The merry-go-round seats will also feature posters of chibi Jujutsu Kaisen characters, fitting well with the adorable carousel seats. Tickets are priced at ¥300 (~USD2.76), and children below the age of 5 need to be accompanied by an adult.
Sip on drinks inspired by your favourite characters

Located within the Guggioba!! area, there will also be a special collaboration at the Kitchen Car. An event-exclusive drinks menu will be available during the promotion period, featuring 8 different character-inspired drinks.

It is likely that the drinks are based on how the characters look. As such, Gojo Satoru fans can delight over a citrusy blue-coloured fizzy drink that references his distinct coral blue eyes, while Panda fans can look forward to a black sesame latte topped with marshmallows and chocolate syrup.

You’ll also receive a limited-edition coaster along with your drink. There are 15 designs available – some of which feature chibi versions of the characters sitting on various amusement park rides.
All drinks are priced at ¥600 (~USD5.52), and every customer is limited to 3 drinks per order. The coasters will be given out at random, so do mumble your prayers if you really want a particular design.
Solve a mystery game and win an exclusive badge

On 27th and 28th March, as well as 3rd and 4th April, there will be a mystery game event happening at Yomiuriland. You need to first buy a mystery solving kit (¥1000, ~USD9.19) from the Yomiuriland Gj Shop located right next to the entrance, or at the Aurora Space if you’re heading down on 4th April.
If you manage to solve the mystery given to you, you’ll receive an exclusive Jujutsu Kaisen button badge with a congratulatory note printed on it. After that, do refrain from spreading spoilers about the game so that other guests can go through the satisfying decoding process too.
