Nice updates. BTW, the billboard that has a bending girl in silhouette is an advertisement for a yoga class.

 

Speaking of smoothness of White Canyon, I think that's because the Japanese government recently called for safety measure in all amusement parks in Japan and required all the parks to have all their rides (especially roller coasters) inspected and submit reports on the conditions of the rides The government did that because, you know already, one person died in May from Fuujin Raizin's derailment at Expoland in Osaka. Most parks must have replaced all old and worn parts in roller coasters. I remember reading that Momonga was closed for a quite a long time because it was the same type of the Togo coaster as Fuujin Raizin. But now I see from the report that it's open, so I suppose most rides are now in good conditions. You guys are there at the right time!

^^ Not only does it make cool sound effects, but when you combine it with other keys, other cool stuff happens. There are other neat keys on the keyboard too, such as ".", ",", "?", and "!". It can also help prevent others from deleting your posts as they can read them more easily

Next update! Space World!

spaceworld_23.jpg.2161a97dc8501bea76111d3fd1c4bdc4.jpg

Back on the trains we were on our way to Uminonakamichi Seaside Park...but we'll save that for another update!

spaceworld_22.jpg.a9e58ea97270e80fe50b5d876bd96d10.jpg

We all had a really good day at Space World. Everyone else? They were all making love on the Ferris Wheel...it's just what you do in Japan!

spaceworld_21.jpg.44ee9aa2f8d34364aae530e9bdabc0da.jpg

Today's "Frozen Coke for Jahan" was "green flavor" also known as Fanta Melon....yeah....Melon.

spaceworld_20.jpg.41c308dfeb09e314e9d4d5318155ded2.jpg

Robb stole the inflatable pink angel wings and the park's wacky bee mascot had wing envy.

spaceworld_19.jpg.0f10c8a4b2e6ee1693c802b2b5fdf4af.jpg

She also won "inflatble angel wings!!!" Japan is so awesome!

spaceworld_18.jpg.96e704642d28adfd6362a2b889ee6e6c.jpg

Elissa won a big banana! Yeah.

spaceworld_17.jpg.580ce2800f21c4e1f67051d5319687da.jpg

KidTums is also having a good time at Space World.

spaceworld_16.jpg.93b5f6aa7054cee6d86b31c94e58842f.jpg

I'm not exactly sure what THAT is, but our bodies are about to be subjected to it! Wish us luck!!!

Titan's first drop or coaster porn for Jahan.

spaceworld_14.jpg.0069ccac26204656514d762945c99cec.jpg

Yay! for the coaster that looks like Magnum, but it's ANYTHING like it at all!

spaceworld_13.jpg.83dd8e28714036cd2a68933a07e31082.jpg

For all you Cedar Point fanboys, this might look familiar.

The view of the park from Zaturn.

spaceworld_10.jpg.64902db7630f38ad13efa2d6da5dff53.jpg

The ride looks like Stealth at Thorpe Park, but for some reason it was MUCH better. The launch seemed faster and there was more airtime over both hills. Weird.

spaceworld_09.jpg.67fd82b2d0a841422b4f14e8076a2263.jpg

Next up was ERT on Zaturn, the new Intamin rocket coaster (well, new for last year that is....)

spaceworld_08.jpg.cd5b13e64958d71be318cc0b1dfd52fb.jpg

Do the "Venus Enjoyment Pose!"

spaceworld_07a.jpg.74f724858f289cfff529dd1adeb6e9f0.jpg

Venus is a pretty kick ass ride. It *looks* very "Schwarzkopf" but it was actually made by Maurer Söhne .

spaceworld_07.jpg.47118c9a32400871dbab627aef4fc24c.jpg

This is what ERT should be like!

spaceworld_06.jpg.4742e8ab81c14482361d96baea4cb0e2.jpg

Everyone is singing Bananarama.

spaceworld_05.jpg.eb2ffa9123556d08309259e1db25b7af.jpg

Our day at Space World started out with a filming/ERT session on Venus.

TPR Group Photo!!!

I think this may be our stop.

spaceworld_02b.jpg.9e0734577d88fba896136a47eb7c2947.jpg

Rich made some friends on the train. At least until he showed them his police badge, then they all got up and left!

spaceworld_02a.jpg.911f7b457408eaac66dc2e41283bb878.jpg

Mmmm.....Mister Donut!!!

spaceworld_02.jpg.970af1bc87212fb6ac669875929bbbc0.jpg

Dan found the "excellent room." He went inside and said it was excellent. Bet you didn't see that one coming!

spaceworld_01.jpg.72595fc1f4a65d05a352a2036e3020e4.jpg

We made base camp in Fukuoka for a few days and each of our mornings started out with Mister Donut (as Mister Donut demonstrates)

Great update. Space world seems to have some very nice coasters.

 

From the photo's, I guess the park crowds were extremely light ? Except for the TPR group, the 2 japanese on Titan and the park mascottes, I didn't notice anybody else on the pics.

SFoT Titan > Space World Titan...by ALOT

Another nice update. The park looks nice and I am sure you had a blast. But I need to ask the same, where are the crowds? Looks like the park was nearly empty.

 

--Soren

Soren, you're forgetting about the cloaking devices.

 

Another great update, there's just something about Robb in pink angel wings that makes me giggle like a schoolgirl.

Just want to stop in here and say that today we rode the most screwed up dark ride in the history of the universe at Parque Espania. There is video, but even that will not be able to truly display the awesomeness of Circus Musical.

 

This trip has kicked much ass so far, and there is a lot still to go.
