J-WORLD was located inside Sunshine City's commercial complex in the Ikebukuro district in Tokyo. Admission tickets cost from 1,300-2,900¥. The ¥1,300 ticket only covered admission, and the ¥2,900 ticket covered both admission to the theme park and its attractions. Advanced tickets could be purchased at 7-11 and FamilyMart as well.
Each attraction (and show) cost ¥800, except Chopper's Carousel ride, which only cost ¥400 if you buy the ¥1300 ticket.
The park was open from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. every day, including holidays.
The Center Core is the entrance area of the park, which is completely surrounded by 360 degrees of LCD screens. It has a touch panel at the center, and when you touch a character image on the panel, the character will appear on the LCD screens. All of the Straw Hat Pirates and Shanks appear.
One Piece Area
The One Piece Area features a number of One Piece-themed attractions and a number of opportunities where fans could take pictures next to murals of Luffy's terrible artwork (the fish-man Nami and the crew's Jolly Roger), a group of Kung-Fu Dugongs, and sculptures of the Thousand Sunny and Sanji's Diable Jambe to pose with. The area also featured a singing animatronic of Brook and a fruit stand selling exotic fruits, reminiscent of Devil Fruits. The area also featured a mock replica of Partys Bar and a wall of masks for sale (including the Sogeking mask)
Soldier Dock Adventure
Soldier Dock Adventure is a seven-minute, ride-along theatrical attraction. The story behind the attraction is that the Straw Hat Pirates visited Resorto, and after wasting all of their money and food, Nami created a tourist ride to raise money. Usopp and Franky built the ride using a Memory Dial, which tells of the crew's previous adventures, like being attacked by Perona's Negative Hollows on Thriller Bark. Ride cars were made to look like the Straw Hat Pirates's different vehicles, like the Mini Merry II and the Shark Submerge III.
Hidden between the One Piece and Dragon Ball Areas, the Amusement Arena consists of arcade games, gashapon and UFO crane machines. Yen prices for games differ in the arcade, and the arcade features J-WORLD-exclusive prizes.
Chopper Quest - Luffy Rescue Mission
The Straw Hat Pirates stopped at Resorto, and Luffy ate a large amount of Balloon Bird meat, known to fill people up with only one piece. Because Luffy ate so much, he continued to get more and more full and swollen. Worried that Luffy might explode, Chopper sent the crew and Law around the island to collect ingredients for the medicine to cure their captain.
Visitors followed Chopper's directions to seven points in the One Piece Area and played mini-games at each point in order to obtain the medicine's ingredients. Depending on the ingredients visitors collected, the ending of the game changed. As a bonus, visitors would have their photo taken to be issued in a newspaper style, with their photo decorated like the top headline with popular characters.
Visitors are each given a backpack with a Chopper plush in it. Each of the seven points where ingredients can be found is designated with a Chopper mark. One minigame involved visitors putting their hands inside orange crates to pick the best ones out for Nami. One had visitors move a lever side-to-side to catch "sugar balls" in a cup, with the result depending on how many the visitors could catch. Another game required visitors to press a button repeatedly to get cola. Other games include blowing away smoke from Smoker with Zoro and fighting off Fighting Fish with Sanji.
Cafe Mademoiselle is a Sanji-themed restaurant that made stylish dishes catered to women to emulate his love for them. Menu items included bone-in meat with balsamic sauce, seafood pilaf, and roast beef with wine sauce. Other menu items were added, including "Colosseum Bento" (like the one Rebecca bought for Luffy), "3D2Y Nuggets" marking the crew's training after Ace's death, and a strawberry shortcake meant to look like Luffy and Chopper's hats.
J-WORLD Cafe is a food court with three different menus based on other series: Naruto, Toriko, and Dragon Ball.
Lucy & Lucy Coliseum the Battle
Lucy & Lucy Coliseum the Battle (ルーシー＆ルーシー コロシアム ザ バトル！ Rūshī & Rūshī Koroshiamu za Batoru!?) was a stage play that ran from December 18, 2014 to February 1, 2015. The show took place during the Dressrosa Arc, when a mysterious man confronted Luffy and Bartolomeo.
Luffy and Bartolomeo were attacked when Inchikin and Justy appeared out from Inchikin's cloak that made them invisible. Bartolomeo defended Luffy with his barrier, and Justy shot at them, cracking Bartolomeo's barrier. Inchikin hypnotized Luffy and caused him to fall asleep, and Inchikin and Justy fled, disappearing under Incihkin's cloak. Bartolomeo tried waking Luffy up by performing the YMCA, which worked. With Luffy awake, Sabo appeared, shocking Luffy. Luffy gave Sabo his Lucy costume, and Inchikin and Justy attacked again. Sabo and Bartoloemo clashed with them, and Sabo defeated them with Ryu no Kagizume.
ONE PIECE FILM: GOLD
A commemorative event was held for the release of One Piece Film: Gold from July 15 to September 11, 2016. Part of the event was a stamp-collecting challenge, where visitors could follow one of two courses: the "Sanji Course" and the "Zoro Course". Collecting enough stamps could earn visitors original can badges that were not otherwise for sale.
