I had high hopes for J-World since they were taking up a floor that use to be part of Namjatown. If you go to Namjatown first, you can use your ticket stub to get into J-World a little cheaper.
I was mostly disappointed. It has a lot of empty unused space. Maybe they were hoping it would be more crowded? It was cool that the staff had uniforms based off different shows though (the Dragonball area has staff wearing monk uniforms from the tournaments).
It's basically split into 3 main sections based on 3 shows: Dragonball, One Piece, and Naruto. There are interactive games and themed foods for each area. The games looked somewhat interesting, but were just blah. Little kids would have more fun as the games were quite simple.
I only played one main game and that was to search for the dragonballs. You have to look for monitors and use the dragon radar to activate a series of mini-games. Actually, it was amusing, but the mini-games were too easy too find as it was just a hallway. There were extra doors and pathways that were blocked off when we went, so I'm guessing they can change up the "maze."
There were a lot of capsule machines and claw games with exclusive toys/prizes which was fun yet annoying.
As of right now, I give it a low score, but perhaps given time they can fill it with more games or just something to make use of so much room. And definitely put more themed items in their gift store! There was barely anything there! Mostly puzzles and snacks!
