  1. Awesome, so across Tokyo is it a same day thing or is it a next day arrival and we should bring a change of clothes?
  2. I hope it does turn out to be a water ride. It's still pretty hot in Valencia it's nice to be able to cool down. Whatever it is they should theme it to Aquaman as well. He's certainly deserving of something. You can ride on one of his sea friends helping him out! It would be awesome. I can imagine the t-shirts now 'Aquaman got me wet'! and all sorts of variants on the same thing.
  3. Ok, so I'm posting my itinerary here, I'm off to Japan next week for my first trip. So if I'm missing out on something obvious please let me know! Also suggestions for things to see and do in the evenings, what to see/miss etc would be great! Arrive Tuesday 6th March in the evening, if we have time we'll head to Aqua Stadium. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are not locked down yet. I'm waiting till it gets closer to see the weather so I can pencil in Fuji Q when they might open a couple of rides. Then I also want to pop in to Yomiuriland and a day for culture and shopping. Saturday the 10th March, we've tickets to the Ghibli museum in the morning, once we are done there we'll head over to Sensojii and Hanshiken, not sure if we'll explore the park or just get the credit and then do some exploring. Sunday we're changing hotels and heading over to TDR To get the Starlight ticket for entry after 3. We have an additional 4 days at Disney, Monday through Thursday. Friday our flight is in the evening at 7pm, so really we have another day. I'm wanting to do Tobu Zoo as well. I think it'll make the most sense to go on the Sunday and just do Disney in the evening. But we're changing hotels the same day, so has anyone had anyone had experience with either a Tokyo luggage transport service or with stowing luggage in their lockers. Does anyone know if Tobu Zoo still has their Magic Carpet? I looked on their website but it looks as if it's gone, which would be a shame as those rides were awesome. I think Toshimaen has one, tempted to swap it out with Hanshiken. So any suggestions on any of the above would be appreciated! Thanks
  4. Hadn't paid too much attention to Shambhala, until I saw the turn today, which looks like it will be a lot of fun. Verbolten is looking awesome, another reason to get to BGW soon.....
  5. We normally stay in Anaheim, walk to Disney, cab it to KBF and then take one of the bus tours to Magic Mountain. You do loose about an hour at the beginning of the day, but if you go on a quiet day then you should be OK, We've never had a problem getting on everything in a single day. If it is busy you can always buy yourself a flash pass.
  6. Why call the police on your phone when you can use it to film the incident and become a youtube millionaire!
  7. Community is back March 15th! Cool. Cool cool cool!
  8. Even for management to turn up took a while. It had obviously escalated into a fight before they started filming, if they had been there faster it wouldn't have escalated to the crazy extent that it did.
  9. If you looked up Main Street Equity in a dictionary they would be described as thus; 'A bunch of mindless jerk's who'll be first against the wall when the revolution comes.' They don't feel the need to answer any of our calls back about our broken boiler and cold everything!
  10. People who crouch down and pretend to be too short to ride. HA HA HA SO FUNNY, no one has EVER done that before! Not being allowed to wear glasses on rides. Inconsistencies between parks, where something is ok at one park, but not allowed at another, You take your bags onto Rock 'n' Rollercoaster, I took my bag on Corkscrew at Alton Towers and the ride op, told me it'd fall out. So you can't even use common sense!
  11. Saw the Secret World of Arrietty today. Always nice to see Ghibli at the cinema. Big problem with it that they only had the US dub available where the characters had been given western names. Apart from that it was pretty great!
  12. Not to be out done by every second guest crouching down as they walk past the height check and saying they are too small. Back to MM though.....I hope it does get replaced with a water ride. As an infrequent guest who visits in the off season I find I get a case of coaster fatigue. It does say a lot for the parks line up when you have several excellent rides that would stand out in any other park but are merely back ground filler rides. So a replacement log flume would be great. Not to mention the fact that it gets fairly hot in Valencia, so getting a chance to cool down would be nice.
  13. It's pretty much always off season here. With the exception of one excellent coaster, I've got to fly some where, which is normally fairly expensive. I miss being close to theme parks.
  14. I'm just glad that Dreier Looping is still around, I wasn't sure what had happened to it after Flamingo Land. Whilst I've not been on Dreir, I'm local to the Mindbender in Edmonton (easily the best part of Edmonton). It really is a fantastic ride, that despite its age remains completely ride able. I guess Canada and Mexico are on par then? Awesome looking law enforcement and classic Schwarzkopf!
  15. Awesome pics, can't believe you went all the way to Costa Rica and didn't visit Jurassic Park!
  16. From the way the trips planned out it looks as if Fuji Q will be the first day, so I guess I'll just have to cross my fingers for good weather and 2 train operation! Thanks for the advice Xcoaster!
  17. That is indeed awesome! Thanks.
  18. So, what's the 'best' way to do Fuji Q? Mouse credit first I presume? Do some lines move (slightly) faster than others? Or just cross your fingers and hope for the best?
  19. Best of luck with Fuji Q, I'll be there the following week. So hopefully it'll work out for both of us. Did you work out how much it would cost to get to Tobu Zoo? As for hotels I was looking at a chain http://www.wmt.co.jp/ The one in Tokyo I was looking at was well reviewed. They charge by person as well so that might be better for you. Not sure what their property in Osaka is like.
  20. Mines a combination of my name and a blind dinosaur's dog.
  21. Chertsey station is closer than Staines and is about a 20 minute walk. When I've gone to Staines I've either been stuck waiting for a bus or splashed out on a cab. If you're short on money and want to get there early I'd go to Chertsey. If it's a double decker bus then it has to go a longer way to get to the park as there is a low bridge. Hope that's of use.
  22. I don't suppose anyone has had any experience of Fuji Q in March time? It'll be school holidays so I expect it to be a bit of a nightmare. Also does anyone know if the buses from Shinjuku Station have a toilet in them? If they don't then I'll probably have to skip out on the park (may be a blessing).
  23. Visited today second vist to the park. Walked onto pretty much everything, longest wait was 15 minutes for Tatsu. Thanks to the people who posted the touring plans. The rest of our group ended up going on X first and got stuck in 90 minute waits. We walked onto it later in the day. Awesome ride and an awesome day. Both trips to Magic mountain I've expected a bad day and to only get a couple of rides in and both times I've been very impressed with the park. So I guess I'm something of a minority.
  24. Going to Knotts and then Scary Farm in the evening for the first time on September 29th. From what I've read I'm not expecting the lines to be too bad, but just in case any recommendations on what to ride first (miss if necessary) and most importantly where to eat?!
