Impress your girlfriend at this Japanese theme park

Have you ever dreamed of saving the day, stepping into the shoes of your favourite action hero?

Well, now a theme park in Japan is running an immersive experience where guests can demonstrate their heroicness in a bid to impress others.

At Hirakata Park in Osaka you can book actors to start a "fight", so you can swing a punch or crush them with a defiant glare.

A tongue-in-cheek YouTube video shows how the stunt will work.

A couple appear to be on a date, before two "thugs" - played by actors - approach them looking for trouble.

One of the men grabs the woman roughly by the shoulder and tells her she's "looking fine", before the boyfriend tells him to get off.

The thug then prepares to throw a punch but he is stopped in his tracks.

After being put in their place, the two "bullies" run off, while the doe-eyed girlfriend looks on at her "brave" boyfriend.

"I've fallen head over heels for him all over again," she muses as the video ends.

Park-goers can also choose other options from the "hero menu" if they're not in the mood for a fight.

Alternative strength-testing scenarios include donating blood to save someone from death or stopping a bomb from exploding.

The experiences are apparently meant to be a bit of fun rather than taken seriously.

They are free to take part in and included in the $56 park entrance fee but those interested must book ahead.

The immersive experiences are being offered on weekends in May and June, with a start time of 1pm.
