Since opening in March 1999, Toyota’s theme park, the MEGA WEB, has welcomed more than 100 million people through its doors. In celebration of their 20th anniversary, which fell on March 19, 2019, a series of events will be held in the park throughout the year. Here’s a glimpse into what awaits you at the park.
If you dream of giving your current ride an upgrade, you might want to check out the TOYOTA CITY SHOWCASE, which introduces the newest technologies and the newest models. There’s also a 1.3-kilometer-long test drive area that allows you to ride flashy automobiles.

It’s not just about the future as MEGA WEB also features a collection of classic cars. In the HISTORY GARAGE, a series of classic cars from all over the world is displayed against a nostalgic townscape.
Classic cars are exhibited in 1960s Tokyo.
If you’re traveling with family, we highly recommend dropping by the RIDE STUDIO. Even children can learn to appreciate the fun of driving, traffic rules, and even receive a driving license. Choose to ride the Camatte, which allows parents and children to enjoy driving together, the PIUS, for single riders, and the FC-PIUS, which is patterned after the hydrogen fuel cell vehicle MIRAI as well as the electric carts and pedal carts for preschoolers.
The FC-PIUS runs on hydraulic energy.
Aside from these exhibits, there are also driving lessons for those who wish to improve their driving, motor sport events, fuel cell lessons, events that assist in the rehabilitation of the Tohoku area from the Great East Japan Earthquake, and a children’s motor show. A day is not enough to look at all the exhibits. Check out MEGA WEB’s web page to see the details about the events.
