    SCRAP Co., Ltd. (Location: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, Representative: Takao Kato), in partnership with Tokyo Dome Resort Operations Co., Ltd. (Location: Atami City, Shizuoka Prefecture, Representative: Takayuki Iwase), has announced the extension of the one-day course of the Real Escape Game "Godzilla Approaching: Hotel Escape" (ゴジラ迫るホテルからの脱出, Gojira Semaru Hoteru Kara no Dasshutsu).

    Also known as "Atami Godzilla Escape" (熱海ゴジラ脱出, Atami Gojira Dasshutsu), the Godzilla event is being held at Atami Bay Resort Korakuen, a popular tourist retreat complex that includes the Atami Korakuen Hotel, which opened 1965. Atami was the site of the final battle in the 1962 film KING KONG VS. GODZILLA (キングコング対ゴジラ, Kingu Kongu Tai Gojira), and has been the setting for various monster movies and special effects films.

    With the cooperation of Toho Co., SCRAP has used Atami as the stage for a special experience that sets itself apart from the standard escape games. Visitors can enjoy an original story that ties back directly to the events of KING KONG VS. GODZILLA, with new film footage depicting Godzilla's attack on present-day Atami. In addition, the Godzilla featured in the Real Escape Game is a new design -- primarily based on the Heisei Godzilla but with some Showa attributes plus more modern-style craggy dorsal fins -- that is exclusive to this event.

    There have been two versions of "Godzilla Approaching: Hotel Escape" to choose from. The longer "Overnight Course" allows players to fully enjoy the resort, which is located in a perfect location overlooking the night view of Atami and the Sagami Sea, for a rich and intense experience. The "Day Trip Course" is a more lighthearted, easy-to-follow game that balances Atami sightseeing and puzzle-solving. Both courses have proven popular with participants. The "Overnight Course" will end on Sunday, July 23, 2023 as previously announced, but the event organizers have decided to further extend the "Day Trip Course" for the foreseeable future.

    By extending this event, which can only be experienced in Atami, SCRAP and Tokyo Dome resort Operations aim to make it a new standard for sightseeing in the area.
