I think that when most of us on the tour figured out that the Wheels in most parks didn't take alllll day to ride (i.e 12-18 min' a complete turn?), we were game for most of them.

 

But those ones with special A/Cs attached... mmmm, those were very very niiice.

 

And I would have liked to have tried that open-air seating chair (one of two?) on Kijima's wheel?

 

You got to ride that didn't you, Bob? Hope there's a pic of that.

Day 5 Typhoon Day

 

This was another 3 park day, Central Park, Tegarayama Yuen and Kurashiki Tivoli Park.

 

This was one of our earliest starting days, 5:30 A.M. For the last few days we had been in Southern Japan. Today were were going to head North a few hundred miles to Osaka area and hit a few parks before continuing North a hundred miles or so to Nagoya that night. Also for the last few days we had been keeping an eye on a typhoon that was headed our way. For a while I thought the Typhoon was going to pass just South of Japan. I figured if we could get those parks out of the way then today when we head North would put us farther from the storm. Unfortunately the typhoon turned North the day before and was now expected to make land tonight somewhere North of Nagoya.

 

We headed out and hoped for the best. 2 out of 3 parks were fun. The other park operated under the Knotts rule that if it looks like rain close the coasters. All in all not a bad day. We got back to the train station early. It was a mad house. Trains heading North towards the typhoon were bing canceled. There were thoughts that we might have to sleep in the station. I actually thought that might be pretty cool. I think Robb & Elissa were contemplating paying for taxis for us to get us to our hotel or try taking the local trains. In the end we we got on a train headed in the right direction with standing room only. After a few long stops at stations we finally made it to our hotel around 11 that night. Our longest day of the trip.

On to a better park, we took lots of trains on this trip. When I went to bed at night and closed my eyes it felt like I was on a train

3rd coaster, CLOSED. One of the worst parts of the park is that R&E paid 100 yen admission each for us and they didn't bother to tell us all the rides were closed

Today was Universal. You would never have known that a typhoon had gone through the night before. This park was very nice ans a lot of fun. It was like Universal Orlando with some IOA thrown in.

I liked the new B&M, Hollywood Dream. Nice air on some parts. I would have liked to ride it more but the Japanese Parks liked to close their rides on time. So if there was an hour wait for the ride and the park closes at 8:00 then they close the line at 7:00. I missed a third ride by about 5 minutes.

Before catching the train back to the hotel that night, Lou was kicking butt at the drum game.

On our 7th full day in Japan it was off to Parque Espana. Home to my favorite coaster on the trip, Pyreneses. The mine train, Gran Montserrat was really good too. Nice park, not a lot of shade around so it gets a little warm in the sun. Is this what Spain is really like?

I wonder if the Japanese really know what half the stuff they ware really says

Nagashima Spaland

 

This is where the Alvey's rock on the trips. We got in the park before the public and got to take a few rides on White Cyclone and Steel Dragon.

 

I really liked Steel Dragon. Nice air on those little hills coming back into the station. It was nice to see it finally open again.

 

The park is Ok but the next time I would like to go to their water park. It looked like it would be more fun then the amusement park rides.

 

Nagoya Zoo

 

This was mostly a credit run. The kiddie coaster was powered so no credit. But it did have plenty of leg room.

The Jet coaster was ... just a jet coaster with far less leg room then the kiddie coaster. Credit!

The Slope Shooter was very interesting. I'm not sure that this one counts as a credit.

 

The funny thing about the whole day is I took very few pictures.

This kiddie coaster wasn't to crowded or nobody wanted to ride with Ryan.

  • 2 weeks later...

After 23 straight days of work it is back to the updates.

 

Today was another 2 park day as we head back towards Tokyo. Lagunasia and Hamanako Pal Pal. Both parks were small, not very crowded and a lot of fun. I would definitly go back to both.

 

Lagunasia had a waterpark built in the middle of it. Which was empty this time of year. The log flume was a water ride. I got pretty wet. Not Dan approved. They had a shooting dark ride that at the end the car would rotate one way or the other depending on how good your score was. The first time I was bad and saw the scarey scene and the second time did better and saw the happy scene.

 

At Hamanako Pal Pal it looked like it was going to rain but it held off and we got all our credits. The place had the best flat ride on the trip. We spent a lot of time riding trying to get an inversion out of it. Most of us were successful.

Today we rearranged our itinerary. We were supposed to go to Fuji-Q but bad weather was forecast for the next couple of days. Knowing that rain would shut the rides down at Fuji-Q we opted to go to Disney Through the bad weather. The gamble paid off. It did rain for the first couple of days at Disney but most of the rides are indoors and it doesn't shut the park down. The weather was good at Fuji-Q four days later and the coasters were all open.

I should have taken a picture of my watch. It was 17:20. Your Fastpass would be good in 40 minutes or you could wait the Stanby line which was 40 minutes. You decide.

It was only a 30 minute wait. I'm sure the fastpass line was at least that long.

The photo halfway down on page 5 thats captioned "best flat ride on this trip"

 

What exactly did it do? Id there a generic name for it? Im a flat ride fan.

 

Don't remember who made the ride. Others on the trip knew, I just don't remember. The ride is like an Enterprise. The seating is side by side. When the wheel rotates the cars swing out and will lock in place. The wheel will tilt and then the cars will unlock causing them to swing. If your one of the lucky ones the car will do a complete 360. I could only get mine to do it once but others couldn't get it to do it at all and still others got three 360's out of it.

Tokyo Disneyland Is an awesome park. Even the first couple of days in the rain didn’t stop anyone from having a good time. They do a super job operating the park with crowds or rain or both. We happened to catch the opening of the park for Halloween. The park was all decorated nicely and they let adults dress up too. They would come as their favorite Disney Character. Sometimes it was hard to tell which a was a cast member and which was a guest.

The Japanese love their parades. It seems like one was going on every couple of hours. People would start lining up for them that early too. It was nuts because they would occur 3 or 4 times that day. People could join in on the parades but they have so many people wanting to be in them they pick by lottery

Autopia wa pretty lame. They had signs that you were not to bump the car in front of you. Only problem was the cars had sensors and when you got to close you would stop. Not as good as the park where Lou rear ended me. :)

Fuji Q or Fuji Queue.

 

Read Robb’s review of this park. I agree with about 95% of it. This was my second visit to this park and the lines were terrible again.. It was about an hour wait for Fujiyama another hour for Dodonpa and over 3 hours for Eejanaika. Lots of concrete and no themeing. Not A park I would want to go back to. The one part I disagree with Robb on is Eejanaika. I actually liked it and would have liked to ride it again. But not with a 3 hour wait. That made the ride not worth it. I did find it better the X at Magic Mountain. I did not find Dodonpa’s launch to be to extreme. It was just a waste to get so much speed and not do anything with it. It just kind of meanders around and over the top hat and that’s it.

 

Sea Paradise

 

Blue Fall, best drop tower I have ever been on. I don’t care much for the false drop side. I prefer the straight drop. You get a great view from the top. I think I like drop towers because it is one of the few things that still scare me to ride. Surf Coaster is a fun ride with it’s 900 degree helix of death. The Japanese seem to love helixes, they are on a lot of rides.

This is a cool park at night with all the lights. The coasters are just so so but it is a fun place. It has really expanded a lot since the last time I was there. They have put a little money to improving the part that was on the other side of the canal. A nice place to spend an evening.
