The Official "TPR Japan Trip 2007" Thread


Recommended Posts

Believe it or not, I actually picked up a passport application at the post office today for both myself and Diana. Maybe Japan will work into our plans next summer after she graduates...

Wonderful work Robb, looks like you are having so much fun, thanks for the update even if it makes me insanely jealous of you lucky ones over there.

 

It's a shame you haven't got Party Boy from jackass with you to do impromptu strips in Japanese stores, maybe someone on tour can take up Party Boys mantle.

 

If I wind up heading to Europe might have to go via Japan.

Today we did 3 parks in the Beppu area of Japan - Sanrio Harmonyland, Wonder Rakutenchi, and Kijima.

The happiest moment of Jeff's life...too bad he was asleep!

TARGET ACQUIRED!!!

They always say that men spend the rest of their life trying to get back in....

Zorbs are Jew and Diabetic approved!

They basically put you into this giant inflated bubble and roll you down a hill!!!!

kijima13.jpg.0b6ae4b14673d2ba0e741f42afd5ffe0.jpg

Zorbs are these crazy human hamster balls that started out in New Zealand.

The park had ZORBS!!!

Hey! We found X's blown lift motor!

Legroom-o-rama!

The Gold Rush coaster, that's the one that kicked our asses! =)

kijima05.jpg.914a2946901cd6c523b4f80db739e09b.jpg

It really was fun!

Why does everyone look so worried?!?!

kijima03.jpg.4d5021694e3702ddf41b01f4db058392.jpg

Next up was the Loop-Screw.

Old people like Jupiter!

It's a pretty damn big woodie!

kijima_cfc02.jpg.4249325418589ba987335fc373719119.jpg

The park closed off the ride for our ERT/filming session.

Some of us even got a "culture credit!"

wonder07.jpg.adb9ba953457191302a9b16ebdd32f08.jpg

Oh, yeah....they had a roller coaster here....

wonder06.jpg.52ad392de778f1b307f4ff802d97ac48.jpg

Bob bet on number 69!

wonder05.jpg.655850210eeb43365d9a4a5ba8b8b592.jpg

...yeah....duck races!

wonder04.jpg.ff7a6d34aa2e4594955f4145b29620cc.jpg

We are betting money on the duck races....

wonder03.jpg.4a5b2853a62715f81741d0fffb9f335a.jpg

This may be the best part of the park!

wonder02.jpg.97226b4cdffa1ffc735f5e7237e807f3.jpg

We rode the incline railway to get up to the park.

wonder01.jpg.53c75106ff80f54bf5a04ed1472369c4.jpg

Next up was Wonder Rakutenchi. A bizarre little park up on the hill.

harmonyland11.jpg.6e14f332e4e66ffd31b64b291e65353d.jpg

Hello Kitty is here too....

harmonyland10.jpg.d913beb3cad9129c40246d2f5f601e9a.jpg

Furry penguins getting spanked. That's hot!

harmonyland09.jpg.2bc62029705a1450429a2d232c7fa39a.jpg

Falafel almost looks like she could be a character in the Sanrio boat ride!

harmonyland08.jpg.f9d4af6e345144d0c5748a1fb5241d95.jpg

Jeff will count it.

harmonyland07.jpg.da53e1be6c4088cfa43d311c34393cde.jpg

Gus! Look happier! This is almost a credit!

harmonyland06.jpg.5aebb1f840b252a692e0760349731fc3.jpg

We rode a coaster. Cha-ching. Next

harmonyland05.jpg.583d4529fb8236b1e5b66ebf1a2f27cd.jpg

Hello Kitty is all "Oh, dear god, what the hell did I do to deserve this?!?!!"

harmonyland04.jpg.424f009134a7be3032ff1671b79ef992.jpg

That's a busload of constipation!

If there is one thing more important to a coaster enthusiast than getting to parks, it's eating fat filled donut goodness in the morning.

Once again our day started at Mister Donut.

Okay, my pathetic worklife is shown by living for lunch to check out the latest trip reports. Thanks so much for the updates. I live vicariously through the antics of the Theme Park Review roadies.

 

sounds just like me!

Oh man, we don't get anything cool in the US.

 

Japan gets Zorbs!

 

Thanks for the update.

 

I thought either Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg was going to get zorbs... anyone remember?

 

Anyway, awesome TR. If I had a job with time off, I'd love to go on one of these... Maybe Someday...

^ Pigeon Forge, I believe.

 

Zorbs look sweet. Japan looks sweet. I'm jealous of you all, let me tell you. After the MW trip, an international trip with you all would be WILD! Thanks for the on-the-fly TR's; I know you were busy on the MW trip to put them up, but I couldn't imagine the stress of being international!

 

Good luck on the rest of the trip everyone!

Wow, y'all look like ur havin a blast... I creamed myself when I saw those donuts and what on earth happened to Kristens face???

 

I bet those Zorbs were awesome, I've always wanted to try that; 'cept it should be like MXC where they put you in a 3ft. radius ball and you and you like bounce over stuff

 

good to know you guys are enjoying your time; cant wait to see those Typhoon photos!

Do you have New POV videos for all of the Roller Coasters that you have been on during this Japan Trip?

 

I would love to see a TPR filmed Un-Cut, Full, Station to Station POV video for Jupiter the wood coaster. Also one for Loop Screw, Splash Bandit, Standing and Loop, and White Canyon. Also newer ones for Galaxy Express 999, and Thunder Dolphin.

 

 

Thanks for your time and help.
