Can you help Tanjiro before it is too late?

Swordsmith Village is under attack by a group of Upper Rank Demons, and the Demon Slayer Corps, including Tanjiro, Tokito, and Kanroji, are doing their best to fend them off. However, Tanjiro needs a new sword. To aid Tanjiro in battle, you (an apprentice swordsmith), Genya, and some other familiar faces set out on a mission to search for and deliver a new sword to Tanjiro. Time is of the essence! Will you be able to complete your task and help save Swordsmith Village in time?

Train alongside Tanjiro, and commit yourself to Hashira training!

This attraction is split into two parts: Part 1 (July 19, 2024 - October 7, 2024) and Part 2 (October 8, 2024 - January 5, 2025). Both Parts will utilize the "Hollywood Dream - The Ride" roller coaster but will have different audios to match the stories. The roller coaster, also called “story coaster,” uniquely blends the thrilling movements of the coaster with audio of the characters’ voices.
