A life-size replica of the movie monster Godzilla was unveiled as part of an attraction dedicated to the creature at a Japanese theme park.
And visitors can ride an exhilarating zip line straight into the animal's cavernous, sharp-toothed mouth.
The attraction was unveiled at the Nijigen no Mori theme park on Awaji Island near the city of Kobe.

The attraction is called "Godzilla Interception Operation Awaji" and sees guests being told they are explorers who must stop the creature. You can then pull a zip line into the huge mouth with the spiky teeth
According to Park, the model is "life-size" with the lower half of the body "buried under the ground". In the latest Godzilla movie, the monster is 120 meters long.
However, the actual structure in the park is 55 meters long, 25 meters wide and 23 meters high.
The attraction, which opened earlier this month, is called Godzilla Interception Operation Awaji and sees guests watching a short film telling them that they are researchers who must stop the creature.
One way to do this is to zip Godzilla's wide open mouth – through his spiky teeth.

After landing from the zip line, visitors can take part in a shooting game to "destroy Godzilla's scattered cells".
When the visitors are back on the ground, they can take part in a shooting game to "destroy Godzilla's cells".
The theme park is also home to the world's first permanent Godzilla museum, which displays movie props.
Additionally, visitors to the park can enjoy Godzilla Curry – a black curry made from Awaji Island onions.
A spokesman for Pasona Group, the company that operates the theme park, told MailOnline Travel, “It's the world's first life-size replica of Godzilla.
Godzilla has appeared in over 30 films. The original was released in 1954 and the newest – Godzilla: King of the Monsters – was released last year
A spokesman for Pasona Group, the company that operates the Nijigen no Mori theme park, told MailOnline Travel: "It's the world's first life-size replica of Godzilla."
"This attraction has been very popular and has been crowded, especially on weekends, since it opened."
The original Godzilla movie was released in 1954, depicting the monster as 50 meters tall.
The Japanese creature has since appeared in more than 30 films – most recently Godzilla: King of the Monsters in 2019.
