COVID-19 Pushes Japanese Tour Bus Company To Create Giant Maze With Empty Buses

09/24/2020

With its business curbed by the Coronavirus pandemic, Tokyo’s leading tour operator Hato Bus Company looked to make the most of a bad situation. With its normal operations on hold for months, Hato used the empty buses at its head depot to create a giant maze.

60 buses in total were parked together to create a winding formation that people could try to make their way through. Limited to six groups of 30 during the 19-22 September long weekend in Japan, the maze experience was made exclusive to customers of a special bus tour from Tokyo Station to the Small Worlds Tokyo theme park in Ariake, with tickets priced at ¥4,980 yen (approximately $47 USD) per ticket including admission. Generating a massive amount of attention, tickets for the experience sold out almost immediately.

According to Hato Bus Company’s PR department, the inventive idea was part of a clever plan dispel the common misconception that buses aren’t as well ventilated as trains.
