  1. Yeah I would definately do train and bus for just about all the trip and get a Japan Rail Pass. It would certainly save you time and money getting to every location. Even though Fuji-Q-Highland only has several coasters and they did make their Zekkyo Priority Pass (Fast Pass) program a lot better, I don't know if I would plan to arrive at the park in the late morning or early afternoon and say you'll be able to get on everything you want to do. From what I'm seeing on their operation schedule, the park seems to only be open until 5pm during the week. I always recommend making sure you get to t
  2. For those who have been hoping for a return to the original Space Fantasy: The Ride experience, it looks like you're in luck! https://www.usj.co.jp/attraction/space-fantasy-the-ride.html I'm heading back again in September and can't wait!
  3. I went to the park mainly to check out construction and go for a walk for an hour, maybe ride something or two, then head home to go to work. They only had a 5 minute wait and I was near them when I thought about trying the app out and everything had a longer wait than that I had time for.
  4. I tried it out on my iPhone XS in my zippered pocket today on Reese's and Kisses Triple Tower, but every time I try to look at the detailed results, the app crashes and takes me out of the app and back to my home screen. I checked to see if it is the latest version and it is.
  5. Judging from the description, it sounds like they may have got Rolling Thunder's old trains from Great Adventure.
  6. I'd say this is an improvement considering Leap the Dips wasn't on the Pay-One-Price plan when I was there last time and I rode Skyliner a couple of times. Still debating whether to spend the 2 1/2 hours of driving and Pa Turnpike tolls to re-visit the park sometime this year, but we'll see.
  7. When I went last September I visited the park twice on the same trip. The first time I bought a ticket for the bus in Shinjuku and bought a free pass once I got to the park. The weather was overcast with rain to form later in the day so crowds weren't a tremendous as my first visit. Once inside I literally booked it to Fujiyama, Takabisha and Do-Dodonpa and bought a crapload of Zekkyo Priority Tickets from the ticket machine in front of the rides. I accidentally bought too many for the same time slot and nearly missed my last one in the first hour! Because of this, I wouldn't purchase no mor
  8. http://www.seaparadise.co.jp/pleasureland/attraction/splashute.html Located at the top of the ride info page with assistance of translation: Kind of a bummer though as it really was the last remaining boat chute rides that many US parks used to have back in the 1900's. It wasn't an intense ride, but was something that had to be ridden because of the history behind it. It wouldn't surprise me if it closed due to popularity as it never had a line when I visited and only ran one side. From my 2017 visit. You had to walk up to the top of the stairs and board the boat between the two ramps.
  9. I would say Fujiyama would probably be closest to Rockin' Roller Coaster in jerkiness. But that's after riding it several times and knowing how to lean and brace at certain turns in the layout. It can be a little jarring on one of your first rides due to several turns that were banked tighter than they should've been and the S-curve hills at the end of the ride. Takabisha might have a little rattle, Do-Dodonpa kind of shuffles in it's large turn (that launch can be very forceful though), but both aren't too bad. Eejanaika can be intense, but it's smoother than X2 by a long shot. I still ha
  10. 1. Name 3 of your favorite roller coasters, but not your top 3. -Fujiyama -Gatekeeper - Thunder Dolphin 2. About how many different parks did you visit in 2018? -23 3. Which 2018 park visit was your favorite? -Tokyo DisneySea 4. Your favorite 2018 park addition (ride, food, show, etc)? -Steel Vengeance 5. What ride exceeded your expectations the most in 2018? -Fuji Flight Company. When I entered the attraction I was expecting Japan's version of Europe in the Air... I entered the loading platform and the freakin' thing was like Disney's Soarin'! I actually enjoyed it a
  11. Pretty much everything from Hospitality Services out to slightly past where the Tram Circle currently is, is where the development is going to be taking place. Take notice that there is no hill that you have to walk down, enter the park and then walk up another and there are some seriously high walls bordering the creek on the other side of the new fountain. I honestly don't know where to begin with this as there is literally so much to unpack! I consider the coaster to just be the icing on the cake as I've been just excited for the new entrance! I'm not really expecting an earth-shattering c
  12. I'm willing to bet the ones who are planning the ACE trip to Japan have never even been there let alone knew how to plan the trip out correctly. 150 people with 6 buses sounds like absolute hell and the additional blunders that sound like have occurred make it worse than waiting in a 3 hour line at Fuji-Q-Highland! Lol If you've never been to another country on a theme park trip, I highly recommend doing it with a group that knows what they're doing like TPR. The 2013 Midwest Trip felt flawless. As for the Golden Tickets, to me their nothing more than a market tool, but I think that if it's
  13. I rode front center row on Skyrush the other night and had no trouble. The center seats on any other rows are a little stricter though. Here are my tips for the other top coasters: -Laff Trakk: Remove excessive clothing such as coats and jackets as well as large items in your pockets and place them in the bag drop. Sit as far back in the seat as possible and cross your legs. This will allow your thighs to turn sideways and the lapbar to go lower. -Fahrenheit: The seatbelts have changed since the horse collar restraints were replaced with softer padding. Remember that most Intamin
