Dear Robb,

 

Yes we are taught how to capitilize and spell correctly in school. But its things like AIM and Myspace that have corrupted us (the youth of america) into thinking we can get away with these things in real life.

 

 

Anywhos... love the update! It was a very good Thanksgiving Treat.

Weird. I seem to be able to capitalize and spell correctly using AIM and Myspace just fine.

 

I guess todays youth doesn't mind the stereotype of being uneducated and lazy?

I want to ride Blue Sex Fall so much! I've ridden Drop Zone at Great America, but it's only 224 feet tall. I'd love to ride Blue Fall in real life!

 

And when it comes to Coke and Pepsi, I prefer Coke. While I like both, Pepsi tastes way too concentrated. Coke has just the right amount of sweetness.

You're completely correct, Robb. Today's youth doesn't mind the stereotype.

 

I am an Assistant Principal in a high school, as well as an adjunct college professor. You should see the writing that I get from my students. It is absolutely awful! Somewhere, somehow, today's youth finds it acceptable to submit written work without capitalization, punctuation, or proper grammar. They see nothing wrong with writing in "IM Speak". And when you question their work ethic, they fight you, saying that there is nothing wrong with what they have given. I am glad to see you enforce this on your site. There are others that enforce this also, which I think is great.

 

Awesome trip report! How do you and Elissa do it with Kid Tums? My daughter is 17 months old, and she still doesn't sleep through the night!! It amazes me that you are able to so this with Kid Tums in tow! Kudos to you and Elissa!

We definitely got lucky with KT. She LOVES being outside, loves watching roller coasters going by, and isn't scared of the noises at all.

 

On the negative side though, she got so used to being outdoors constantly this summer on all of the trips that now she won't stay inside at all! We have to take her out at least 3 times a day or she gets more and more miserable!

 

Good for trips, bad for the rest of the year!

Great photos so far, and LaQua looks like a really cool place since it's in the middle of Tokyo and the rides are all over the place. I'm surprised with Thunder Dolphin, well was as I found out it wasn't great from your 04 trip, but it does have a really cool location. I don't know much about Sea Paradise, but I assume it is like Sea World California so it seems to be a nice park.

351 feet tall.

 

 

I really REALLY didn't realize how OMG high that thing was.

 

Until you posted that.

 

My, my. Wow.

 

I guess I've done pretty good with my fear of heights.

 

And I rode that thing twice!

Although I really enjoy the Drop Tower experience I always think the restraint will not lock and so I'm very happy for the small seatbelt attaching the restraint to the seat.

 

Blue Fall did not have this safety feature.

 

I was very happy to make it back to Earth.

My daughter is similar. She is now 17 and 1/2 months old. She loves the sounds and sights of coaster trains going by, and she also hates being trapped inside. Living in New York City, it is now Winter, so we have quite a bit of inside time. =( Travel is difficult when it is really cold.

 

Hopefully the next time you guys are on the East Coast, we can join you on your GrAdv outing.

 

I wish GrAdv would get a Blue Sex Fall! They need a drop tower so badly!

And what is the fake drop on Blue Fall?

 

The fake drop is shown in Robb's Seaparadise video. It is when the ride releases you to drop, but some brakes at the top catch you, hold you for a second or so, then you drop the rest of the way down. If I'm not right, please correct me.

Haha WOW! I really want to get out there and ride that thing. That's insane!

 

And it's not even the tallest! Imagine a drop tower built on the side of Superman: The Escape at Six Flags Magic Mountain. Well, that's pretty much what they got in Australia.

 

 

I believe the drop is around 390 feet. It also holds you at the top for about 45 seconds!

We ended our day at "Cosmoworld" a little park build right in the middle of Yokohama city. Personally, I think that Comoworld might actually be the most awesome setting for a park anywhere in the world! It rivals Ocean Park in that category!

 

The park was a little different from the last time we were there in 2004. There is a little park on the other side of the water that last time just had a couple of kiddie rides and flats. It appears that since then, Cosmoworld has purchased this little park and made it park of the Cosmoworld complex. They've expanded it with a few more flats, a new kiddie credit, some shops and a bigger arcade.

 

It was really cool that they've expanded and it gave you a reason to go check out the other side!

 

Anyway, onto some photos....

It was time to head out. Say our final goodbye to one of the most awesome looking parks ever!

 

Special thanks to Ryan, Falefel, Bob, Mark, Tom, Jeff, Dan, Chuck, and Lou for submitting photos!

cosmoworld_ryan02.jpg.08d5371c750b4cd41eff59713911e76f.jpg

Ok, fine...maybe there is something a little perverted about it! =)

You're a large train thrust into a large hole that gets wet. Hmm....

cosmoworld_tom01.jpg.21c4e0277009abd2007ec8236a257b5d.jpg

Is it just me or is there something strangely perverted about it?

This is why it's called "Diving Coaster!"

cosmoworld07.jpg.e6236ebe1d212eb60d3a5bbd7caa88d3.jpg

Yes..you are seeing that correctly. It's the "get as many balls as you can into the Cup-O-Noodles when it opens it's lid" game.

The Yokohama Landmark Tower is the tallest building in Japan and it's right next to Cosmoworld!

cosmoworld_ryan01.jpg.f57ea168e805cf4d07ee27b5a7db8240.jpg

Upon entering the area you can see Cosmoworld is dwarfed by all the huge buildings around it.
