Fuji-Q Highlands Discussion Thread

P. 51 - New Observation Deck and Slide!

Recommended Posts

Wow that element looks crazy

 

Is that first Element some kind of giant corkscrew/stretched loop? It looks huge as well as that cobra roll looking thingamajig will this be the tallest fastest Eurofighter on the planet when it opens?

 

With my untrained eye is that track different from Intamin's track? it looks very Intamin IMO

 

Yes the element is strange. It is a top-hat inside only this one is overbanked. And the track is different from the intamin track. These 4 tube tracks are wider than the intamin tracks. The standard Euro-Fighter track is 1.2 m wide ( which is exactly 3,93 ft )

I assume it will be a lot like the slides on the Royal Caribbean ships.    

A new tourist attraction "Fujiyama - King of Coasters Tower" Planning to open Summer 2021 will be a new 55m observation tower tucked into the turnaround on Fujiyama. Initially it was designed to

"Fujiyama - King of Coasters slider"--They need to sell these sliders in the snack bar.

:omg:

 

Theme Park Hell

 

truly exists!

 

 

"CURSE YOU Mt.FUJI - God/dess/s of Lineups!"

 

(all bad-lipsynching, of c-ourse...)

 

I agree Bill this is an evil evil park.

 

This new ride is cool and all. But is it really worth the 3 hour wait in a long hot and no doubt dirty line?

 

Your better off spending an extra day at Disney!!!!! At least there it's clean and with Fastpass you get ride everything you want.

I long for the day I can go back to Fuji Q with OUT there being a new credit that I have to wait for!!!!

 

Why would you want to go back to Fuji-Q if there wasn't a new credit to ride?

 

I must say though that this ride looks amazing so far, although I'm sure Fuji-Q will find a way to ruin it. The elements on the ride are just massive, very unique, and the ride looks like it will easily be the best in the park. Although, that wasn't hard to do. I can't wait to see the rest of the layout, or what the theme, assuming there is one, in what looks like will be the indoor section I posted earlier.

I say I would call this new element an "overbanked inside half top hat cobra roll" or "OIHTHCR" for short. Second thought my feeling is it should be called a "WTF" - Wicked Top Flip. Seriously. Peace! KC

WTF!

 

I have -dreamed- about an element like that since I'v ebeen playing RCT II- as it looks like some sort of twisted half-batwing/cobraroll element...

 

But if I'm looking at it correctly- do you qualify for being upside down once, or is it twice/three times as it appears?

Looks like the element might be a unique experience, but c'mon. You all know Fuji Q Highland has GOT to find a way to make this suck. That is just what they do.

It should be law that nothing new and innovative can be premiered at Fuji-Q.

 

Lord have moistures, that's going to be one LONG day. But really, what ride at FQ is comfy and fun? Will this new element bring more pain and misfortune? Only time will tell. Looks like this could be an ear-banger.

 

EDIT: ^ We were thinking the same thing!

The ride looks neat. However, if I went on a TPR Japan trip and I had a decision of going to Fuji-Q or staying in the hotel, I'd choose the hotel.

^Barry, I did that last time and the freakin universe repaid me with an Earthquake!!!!!!

 

Yup, Robb and the group went off to Fuji Q whie KT and I stayed on the 30 something floor of the hotel. Right around 8:30 in the morning the room started swaying and I was sooooo pissed at Fuji Q for causing this!!!! All I kept thinking was the building was going to collapse and we would die, but the Fuji Q group would be just fine!!!

Strangely enough, I created an Inverted coaster version in 2003 for a ride I released in feb of 2003. It is really cool to see something I came up with over 8 years ago, in some form (but really similar in angles and such) take reality. Very cool. The element on my ride was pretty fun I thought.

Oh my gosh that looks awesome! Once it's finished someone should go stand in line for several hours to tell us what it's like.

 

If anyone wants to donate money to me for the trip, I'd happily do it.

Let's face it.

 

This new coaster is turning on-going return visits to

 

Fuji-Q Highland Park

 

into something like part of a dastardly "TPR Touring Ritual", lol. (dastardly?)

 

If you 'happen' to be touring Japan.

 

(And several of us will be there in a few months' time, so we'll let you all know how long the lineups... )

Exactly.

 

 

EDIT to add: Truth to tell, I did get in five out of the seven coasters available at the time,

back in the 2007 tour, lol. But it was a long, long day in the lines. One of those things that happens.

 

And I rewarded myself (for being so F-Queue-patient, hah!), with My Very First Ever Dippin' Dots!

In F-Q of all places!
