We will have more updates as soon as possible!

It's all about getting punched in the face by GeoPanic!

Yup, they have Thunder Dolphin here. Most people in the group thought it was pretty "meh"

In case you couldn't tell....we are at LaQua.

It's an ad for the "Flying pink elephant sucks the little mushroom man and mini-Godzilla with his trunk" game!

Yay! We finally get to ride a coaster!

In the arcade, Elissa won a coin block and a goomba. The coin block even makes the "ding...ding..." sound and if you hit it ten times you get a 1up! I'm not kidding!!!

It wouldn't be a Japan trip without saying hello to our little Taiko friends.

japantrip_13.jpg.c66aacfeba45151e1f475ceb1f4258fe.jpg

Elissa likes 7 pound balls.

The next day while the rest of the group was arriving we went down to Tokyo Disney to get the tickets. It was the hardest thing to be at Tokyo Disney and NOT go inside!!!!

tpr_japan4.jpg.77afc3e36356099cb65f072a96869d24.jpg

Can someone escort us in there please?

We took turns having Lou be our "escort." She sure was tired by the end of the night! =)

Great update.

Finally I can see that my brother is in *safe* hands in Japan

Marcus, I seriously thought that you did a 2nd trip for the year for a minute there! You and your brother look really similar!

 

Glad to see that you're all having fun in Japan! Have a great time!

I still miss going on Galaxy Express 999 after a long day! My brother and I would leave my mom at the hotel and we'd just walk up the block and we were there. And I still think Thunder Dolphin is the best hyper coaster I've been on...I guess I'm stupid . Have a great trip guys. And ride Space Mountain for me...and my favorite ride ever, Journey To The Center for me too.

Wow, It seems like you guys have already been all over the place!

 

What's up with Thunder Dolphin? It looks cool.

 

Bizarre is the word I would use to describe it!

 

A 260 foot coaster in the middle of one of the biggest cities in the world? If I ever go to Japan, it is something I will really look forward to.

 

But in all honesty, it looks like Millennium Force, just half the length, which means it is probably just average for a hyper.

Speaking of foreign people sleeping in public, I saw a Chinese guy fall asleep reading the paper in the Asda Restaurant today...

 

They called security in to wake him up. He had completely forgot he was in a shop and not at home... lol

Ryan, your hair is getting (or has it always been?) ridiculous.

It's always been ridiculous. No offense Ryan.

 

Great update and I totally want that Mario block plush. Think of the infinite lives!

That means a lot coming from the King of the Bowl Cut!

I'm sorry, I just have to laugh at myself.

 

Bowl cuts aren't that ridiculous, are they?
