The Awesome Studio Ghibli Theme Park That Will Never Happen

One of my biggest dreams is to visit Japan and Studio Ghilbli. Now, I know that the studio is shutting down, but at least the museum remains. If it was up to Japanese artist Takumi, there wouldn’t just be a museum, there’d be a whole theme park. In fact, the longtime Ghibli fan has gone as far as to design the entire park, attractions and all. He released the images online 2 days ago with a message that he’s done with the park and now he’s moving on to design the food menus and merchandise.

Some of the highlights of Tokyo Ghibli Land include a Laputa roller coaster, a Sea of Decay log flume, and a monorail shaped like the Cat Bus.

Check out these drawings and a complete list of the attractions conceived by Takumi:

Hotel Adriano (Porco Rosso); Automobile Mountain (with a gun-toting Dora from Castle in the Sky); Laputa Labyrinth; Hatter hat shop (Howl’s Moving Castle); Uncle Pom’s Planetarium, Flying Flaptters and Tiger Moth Adventure 3D (Castle in the Sky); Therru’s Dragon (Tales from Earthsea).
