The details:
  • The park will feature seven themed areas inspired by iconic locations from the series, such as Kame House, Capsule Corporation and Beerus’s Planet. With five state-of-the-art rides and over 30 attractions, including a 70-meter-high Shenron landmark housing a roller coaster, the park aims to give visitors an immersive experience with Goku and his friends.
