Seibuen Amusement Park, an amusement park in Japan located near Tokyo (in Tokorozawa, Saitama Prefecture) is currently renovated and will be reopened on Wednesday, May 19 2021.

Just like the Seibu Lions baseball team, Seibu-en is also owned and operated by Seibu Railway.

The park will be designed in a retro style of the 1960s like a Showa town, and in that spirit of the 1960s Seibu-en has designed its own in-house currency called Seibuen Currency to match shopping prices and experiences of the 1960s. The bills are called "Hyakuseibuen" and "Juseibuen", and they will show pictures of Caesar and of Kimba, respectively:

Aside from the the world's first large-scale ride attraction called "Godzilla the Ride Large Monsters Summit Battle", the Seibuen Amusement Park will also feature a family area called "Let's Go! Leo Land" that both adults and children will be able to enjoy.

This area will feature Astro Boy and Kimba the White Lion characters, and 6 attractions including the roller coaster "Astro Boy's lunar trip", the rotary ride attractions "Fly! Jungle Hero Leo" and "Leo and Laiya's Jungle Dance Party", and the lovely looking "Leo and Laiya sunset train" (click on each image to enlarge it):
