Fuji-Q Highlands Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

I admit, it looks cool...but c'mon, this is Fuji-Q. They'll find some way to make this thing suck.

Like they would have only bought 1 car!

 

That's not funny, because it's probably true!

 

 

 

 

 

(ok, it was F'n funny! )

(after watching vid)

 

Uh - yeah - tests kool.

 

 

Even going up that lift hill

took - for - e - ver.

And then the car slooooooowwwwly

edged forward..... and then...down.

 

Geez, the whole ride vid itself looked and timed longer

than it (normally) would/should have. But of course,

this is testing the thing out, right? Uh huh?

 

But then at Fuji-Q:

One car + lift hill = Guaranteed 3-4 Hour Queues, LOL!

The video is awesome - thanks for posting it! I agree the lift takes forever but the ride looks smooth and really does flow well. I also think the car looks very small and is funny to watch - can't wait for a POV.

Or institute a rule like the Dorney Park wild mouse where only two people can ride per train.

One car.

 

One long - really long - lift hill.

 

And only two people per car.

 

 

Hmmm.

 

I think we have the makings of a

First-Ever 6 HOUR QUEUE at Fuj-Q!

 

(Hoping to the Coaster Gawds it

doesn't REALLY lead to this. Eep.)

I saw this video on another site, read the TPR posting rules, and think I did this right and wanted to share the video of them testing three (3) cars -

 

This ride has a beautiful flow and hope we get one in the States soon.

This is a level of awesomeness that words simply can't describe.

This REALLY is a Coaster Nerds wet dream...at least it is mine

 

If I ignore what I heard about Fuji Qs Operations this is one of the most exciting looking Coasters ever build. One of the few that really make me jealous because we don`t have anything comparable here in Germany.

 

Of Course, in a smaller Scale we have...but the scale of this thing is what seems to make it stand out...

 

This is definitively a reason to go oversea...

Germanys biggest newsletter wrote an article about the new eurofighter "Takabisha". It's the steepest drop worldwide with 121¬į..

 

Lust auf einen Adrenalin-Kick? Dann auf nach Japan! Dort er√∂ffnet am 16. Juli die steilste Achterbahn der Welt. Die st√ľrzt n√§mlich 43 Meter im freien Fall in die Tiefe ‚Äď und das bei einem Gef√§lle von 121 Grad! Gef√§llt Ihnen das?

Vor der Kulisse des Fuji, Japans h√∂chstem Berg, liegt der Freizeitpark Fuji-Q Highland. Der hatte seinerzeit schon die h√∂chste und auch die schnellste Achterbahn der Welt zu bieten, bis diese Superlative √ľbertroffen wurden. Jetzt geht er also mit der steilsten an den Start.

 

Die Daten der Achterbahn ‚ÄěTakabisha‚Äú h√∂ren sich auch flott an: Neben dem Drop mit krassem Gef√§lle gibt es sieben √úberschlagselemente und eine Beschleunigung von 0 auf 100 Stundenkilometer in gerade einmal zwei Sekunden. Allerdings bleibt's dann bei der Geschwindigkeit. Und das soll schnell sein?

 

Zum Vergleich: Der Ring Racer am N√ľrburgring, der noch in diesem Sommer er√∂ffnet werden soll, wird mit 216 Stundenkilometern die gewundenen Schienen entlangsausen. Aber keine Sorge: Der freie Fall im √úberhang auf der Takabisha-Bahn macht diesen kleinen ‚ÄěSch√∂nheitsfehler‚Äú garantiert wett und kommt Fahrg√§sten bestimmt nicht zu langsam vor...

 

Japans brandneue steilste Achterbahn und weitere rasante Fahrger√§te sehen Sie in der Fotogalerie. Schwindelfreies Vergn√ľgen!

 

Fancy an adrenaline rush? Then on to Japan! Opened there on 16 July, the steepest roller coaster in the world. The crash that is 43 meters in free fall into the depths - and at a gradient of 121 degrees! Do you like it?

Set against the backdrop of Mount Fuji, Japan's highest mountain, is the theme park Fuji-Q Highland. Who had once been the highest and fastest roller coaster in the world to offer up these superlatives were exceeded. So now he goes with the steepest at the start.

 

The data from the roller coaster "Takabisha" listen to too fast: Next to the drop with a sharp slope estimate there are seven elements and an acceleration from 0 to 100 kph in just two seconds. However, it's still at speed. And this is supposed to be fast?

 

By comparison, the ring at the Nurburgring racer, who is scheduled to open this summer, will fly along with 216 kilometers per hour, the winding tracks. But do not worry: The free fall in the surplus on Takabisha train makes these little "flaws" and comes guaranteed to compete against passengers determined not to slow ...

 

Japan's brand-new steepest roller coasters and other fast-paced driving devices you see in the photo gallery. Dizziness-free pleasure!

Damn.

 

I wish that thing had been available to ride

when the TPR tour was there, back in late June.

But it's not open till July 13th, I remember seeing

on posters and stuff.

 

Oh well - next Fuji-Q visit, heh heh.

 

Thanks for posting the video!

It looks amazing! My only comment is that I would prefer the lift first followed by the launch so that there's no break in the middle. But either way the ride looks great, and I can't wait to ride it whenever I get back to Japan.
