Toyota is one of the most recognizable names in the automotive industry, and it’s no wonder, as its cars consistently rank highly in the most-sold vehicles on the market.
For all the Toyota fans who want a little more Toyota, the manufacturer has an entire theme park on the waterfront in Tokyo, Japan just for you.
The MEGA WEB is dedicated to all things vehicles (those made by Toyota and those not) as well as Toyota’s emerging automotive technologies. With rare, influential classic vehicles showcased, as well as modern-car technology, the amusement park is a tribute to the cars of yesterday and the optimistic future of driving.
Mobility on display
The MEGA WEB’s Mobility Zone showcases a range of Welcab assisted-mobility vehicles.
The Toyota’s MEGA WEB theme park is composed of different “zones,” based on the theme of the areas of the park, including the GR Zone—an array of Toyota’s Gazoo Racing team vehicles—and the Toyota x Sports Zone—where visitors can peruse a fleet of futuristic EVs like the e-Racer and play arcade-style car racing games.
The Mobility Zone, as its name indicates, is where Toyota’s impressive technology is on display. The zone features Toyota’s line of Welcab vehicles, modified Toyota models with accessible changes made for those with wheelchairs or other needs, and the Friendmatic vehicles, which come with driving-assistance devices.
Visitors can interact with the Toyota e-Palette and Accessible People Mover (APM), which are mobility-friendly vehicles that were created to transport attendees and athletes alike at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. The APM was thoughtfully designed for easy wheelchair access.
Experience the History Garage
Classic car buffs and history enthusiasts should make their way to the MEGA WEB’s History Garage to experience firsthand some of the world’s antique vehicles.
Here, visitors can travel back in time with the Tokyo exhibit and stroll through a nostalgic replica of a ’60s Japanese city street, filled with Toyotas and other retro models from the decade.
The History Garage boasts a collection of vintage cars from the ’50s through the ’70s. Some of Toyota’s most famous makes from the period are featured, but iconic non-Toyota models, such as a DeLorean DMC-12 (from the Back to the Future set!) and a Volkswagen Beetle Type 1 are also parked here.
The History Garage is not just a place for seeing stationary vehicles. In the Restore Pit, visitors can watch as skilled mechanics bring these classic vehicles back to their former glory.
The Corridor is an elegant 30-meter hallway, modeled after a wine cellar, embellished with an array of car collector’s pieces, magazines and toys.
Take a virtual test drive at Toyota’s theme park
Guests to the MEGA WEB theme park can even get behind the wheel of the modern vehicles they see. MEGA WEB accommodates a short track where visitors take laps around it in one of Toyota’s selection of impressive vehicles.
This lineup includes dream cars like the turbocharged Toyota Supra coupe and innovative rides like the Mirai, one of the world’s first hydrogen-powered cars.
In addition to the virtual test drives offered at the park, an advanced simulator let’s anyone experience the thrill of driving. The simulator includes a standard driver’s seat and dashboard and an immersive viewing experience with several screens surrounding the user.
Operating a driving simulator might not require car insurance, but, behind the wheel in real life does.
