TRIAL ZONE has the capacity of 8 people, and each person sits on the chair and put on PS VR.

The famous PS VR!
I personally thought that the body was lighter and easier to watch compared with other VR goggles! It's promising!!

I put on the goggles and headphones as the crew signaled!
Also, I held the controller in my hand and it began.

The experience itself lasts for 10 minutes, but the crew carefully lectured us such as how to deal with possible nausea during the game.

As it began, the deck of Thousand Sunny unfolded in front my eyes, 360 degrees!
Players become a pirate trainee of Straw Hat Pirates and spend one day of their voyage on Thousand Sunny.

The exact view I saw in the manga and animation stretches in front of me.
It's irresistible to ONE PIECE fans!
It's very much life-like, even Nami's tangerine tree stands on the ground.

The view through the goggles is like this! Also, there are scenes where Straw Hat Pirates talk to us!
I was so excited when Chopper talked to me! That's me nodding to him... hahaha.

With headphones, the sound is clear and very realistic!

It felt as if I actually became a member of Straw Hat Pirates. It was such an amazing experience!
Your eyes and ears are all covered, so you get very immersed into the world! So interesting!

Different seats and different choices make different outcome, so you can enjoy many times! This is fun!

Also, at the last part of the experience, there is a cooperative play with 8 people using the controller only at Tokyo One Piece Tower!

I participated in the shooting battle with Marines!
With 2 teams, Team Luffy and Team Usopp, you shoot down cannon balls and barrels!
In the end, the result will show which team shot down more, so put your heart into it!

Time flied and I was a bit sad when I took off the goggles. I wanted to be in their world more!
My friend who played with me couldn't contain the excitement saying, "This is amazing! I want to do this one more time!"

Not only those who’ve experienced VR before, but also first-timers and those who are not so familiar with ONE PIECE can enjoy this 20 minutes!
