Tokyo Mystery Circus Challenges Players to Escape from a Sinking Ship
Voice actress Kana Hanazawa is lending her talents to a real-escape game staged by Tokyo Mystery Circus that will challenge participants to form teams of 4 players and solve puzzles in order to escape from a locked room on a sinking luxury liner ship.
Hanazawa plays Rene, an adventurous but somewhat clumsy 15 year old girl who provides hints from the opposite side of the window to the player’s locked cabin. The game features a 60 minute time limit and numerous gimmicks and gadgets to create the impression that the players are trapped in a sinking ship.
Tokyo Mystery Circus is a real escape game theme park located in the APM Building in Kabuki-cho, Shinjuku, Tokyo, Japan. The “Escape from the Sinking Luxury Liner” game debuts there on December 19, 2017. Tickets to the game range in price from 2600 yen ($22.95 US) for advance student admission tickets to 3600 yen ($31.78 US) for general admission at the door. Advance group tickets are also available for 12,000 yen ($105.92 US) total for a group of 4 players.
