The Official "TPR Japan Trip 2007" Thread


Recommended Posts

hey all!

 

Got back to Canada safe and sound, with several hours to re-live again! Have to love that flying back in time thing, heh heh.

 

But - not finding a couple of parks and coasters for my tally list at CoasterCount.com and would really appreciate any help here finding them. Here they are:

 

1) Hanayashiki Park - first add-on park (and an old one too, opened in 1853!)several of us did before the "official tour" began. 1 credit.

 

2) Aqua Stadium w/Galaxy Express 999 coaster - at our first tour hotel, The Prince. 1 credit.

 

3) Wonder Rakutenchi park - a Jet coatser credit, those duck races, and a funicular railway to get us up to the park on the side of a mountain.

 

4) Toshimaen Park - last add-on park several of us did, before getting the airport shuttle to head home or to continue on to S.Korea. 3 (out of 4) credits.

 

Thanks in advance for any help in this search - and my personal Top Ten List of the TPR Japan Tour is almost ready to post later tonight!

^Some, but not all of those credits can be found on CoasterFanatics.com, which a lot of people on here use.

 

Thanks, that did go through my head at first, but I figured it was better to ask, etc.

 

I think Toshimaen is listed there and I've seen it, but it only lists one coaster credit ( the shuttle loop that was, interestingly enough, the coaster that was down for the day ) and there are four at this same-named park.

Hey everyone! I apologize for the delay in getting an update done. Some of you may have noticed we've had some minor server issues in the past 24 hours. Everything is fixed and posting photos works once again!

 

So our next park was Himeji Central Park....

The "Shoking" horror museum. Yeah. "Shoking." No, that's not a typo, it's pronounced "Show King"

Ryan rides by himself because he has no friends. No, seriously....I'm not joking. Look at him. Would you be friends with a guy that has hair that looks like that?

^^ Lou: "When they told me I was going to get to ride something that was really long, this ISN'T what I had in mind!"

 

(sorry, Lou )

 

I immediately wondered what was wrong with Dave, so I appreciate Robb clearing that up. Now he IS like the other Dave Thomas.

Central Park was the first park we visited that had, I remember, Our Very First Rastafarian Gift Shop!

 

Eh, mon?

 

Batman clone was fun, green tea (not pea, I learned my lesson, k?) soft serve was nice, that rifle shoot-up RUN THRU was insane, and what were they burning there, outside of the park? I have a pic of it, I will post later.

 

Also, glad to see it wasn't me that was f-ing up posting pix here last night. I tried to get started on my Top Ten List but blah blah blah, no pix could be posted. Thanks for making me feel much better about that (I thought) posting mistake (ha) on my part. (whew)

 

In the meantime, I will start to post my The List in a separate thread, then you can gather it together with the other eventual TRs everybody else will be posting, under one main page, in time.

 

Thanks again Robb for the awesome updates. And now, GO TO BED!

 

(P.S. I also want to give a shout-out to all closet Scary Teddy lovers around the world! I am a closet ST fanboy and Tokyo Disney Resort gave me ample stuff'n reason to add to the collection/insanity that is loving the little lightbulb-chomping fella, lol. See proof below...)

Teddy02.jpg.10e8b726848665afc1b824484483450b.jpg

And for proof further... My entire collection of NBC-ST pins on a single lanyard! Mmmmmm, Teddy.

Teddy01.jpg.2f9c5f988656393d011cf931a2abcf0b.jpg

Here we are! All ready to get going on that personal Ten Best List of the Tour. Note that Teddy has his own ST here? Only the best for the best!

Well, I do like contests. Especially when the grand prize is a bag of crap! Ah crap, our most renewable resource.

After careful consideration, the judges inform Lou that riding a four-foot-tall animatronic giraffe doesn't count as a "plushie" credit. Richard, meanwhile, is just happy to be getting some kind of attention. Poor Richard.

Who doesn't like a good caption contest?

 

Lou: My head still hurts from getting donkey punched on the Hurricane. At least I have that panda to ride later...

 

Richard: Not if I keep you trapped on the on the Hurricane! ::insert evil laugh::

 

Lou: Watch out on next year's East Coast trip where you will have an excellent time on Hypersonic...

 

 

What's up with the shotguns? Can someone explain the game/ride/attraction/whatever? (laser tag? break the targets?)

You went in groups of four, to an area, and when the bell/buzzer/whatever went off - you started shooting like crazy at whatever targets popped up - not the hostages though, har har - then you rushed into the next room/target area and repeated the same thing.

 

Guns were electronic , killing hostages was seriously OMG crazy, and it was a good workout for most of us, lol.

 

In fact, this was one of the very few shoot-up attractions that didn't move us around in a ride vehicle. Hence, a good workout, heh heh.

Caption:

Lou: Awww Richard stop looking at my Giraffes zip

Panda: And you wonder why we are endangered?

 

I hope you all had a great time on the trip. I cant wait for Robb to post the full reports of all the trips they will be amazing but I think I will quite happily laugh at all of these for a long time.

Central Park looks...interesting.

 

That Batman clone looks like it's seen better days, given the rust on it and the heavily worn OTSRs. I hope it was still at least somewhat B&M smooth.

 

And Dan still has that crap all over his face...doesn't he ever bathe?

Lou: Damn, I forgot to wear a short skirt and no underwear. I WANTED to show everyone my "Britney getting out of a giraffe-limo" impression. At least I got the camera angle right!

 

Richard: Is there such a thing as "giraffe toe"?

 

Panda: Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh.

Thanks for your help.

 

OMG! That sounds like so much fun! Too bad that there isn't something similar to that in North America. Must be one of those "never in America" things again.
