NAVITIME TRAVEL EDITOR

Few industries have evolved over the years like the world of video games. Gone are the days of sitting in front of the television, furiously mashing buttons in an effort to save a pixelated princess trapped in a castle. Today, the line between video game and reality is more blurred than ever.
Taking full advantage of the technology that has elevated gaming to this level is RED TOKYO TOWER, a new multi-level gaming complex situated beneath the iconic Tokyo Tower.
With “zones” spread across levels one, three, four and five, the complex is like no other, and has something for everyone in a digital world at the forefront of gaming technology.

    In the Wonder Zone, thrusting visitors into the world of high-speed simulation, is Boat Race. A virtual reality (VR) boat racing experience in which up to 6 players can compete while experiencing realistic wind, water spray and vibration effects that make it seem as though you’re actually out on the water.
