Fuji-Q Highlands Discussion Thread

P. 51 - New Observation Deck and Slide!

Recommended Posts

^ A B&M would be nice. I don't think they will get an intamin, as they already have the main three types of coasters intamin makes, launch, hyper, and multi looper.

 

The capacity of B&M coasters is too much for Fuji-Q. Unless B&M can develop 2 car trains

Seriously, though. I went to Fuji-Q over the summer. Even though Fujiyama and Dodonpa were running 2 trains their lines moved unbelievably slow. I was lucky to get onto Fujiyama on the last train before they determined it was too rainy. Terrible operations; I'm sure even with a full-on Diamondback-style B&M train Fuji-Q would manage to run it at 400 riders per hour.

Perhaps they could use four seats in the first two rows, then just rope off the others.

A bit off topic but I wonder if they could be getting a new ride next year as there seems to be a trend of installing a coaster 5 years after the previous one: 1996 - Fujiyama, 2001 - Dodonpa, 2006 - Eejanaika, 2011 - Takabisha. Just a thought, though.

Looks like Fuji-Q will be getting a Gerstlauer Sky Roller.

From their Facebook page with poorly translated grammar:

 

On July 16, a new attraction named "TENTEKOMAI" is set to open.

^Awesome addition! A relatively unique flat... With a capacity perfect for Fuji-Q

 

Yeah, I already thought of that, too.

Fuji Q have announced Dodonpa is to close on October the 2nd for an extended period of time.

The ride will be reborn next summer.

 

Quite what this means is anyone's guess but a layout change or extension isnt beyond the realms of possibility. Or we could just be looking at an extended refurb.

^ I think there may be a re track, but the track will be the same style. If you changed the whole track you would need new breaks, station, train, clearances and of course the spectacular laugh will have to be re done. If you look, the two track systems are very different

My guess is that they'll re-track the whole ride to S&S's modern track and give the ride the 4-across trains like they have in China.

 

4-across

 

It's Fuji-Q, they will reduce capacity turning it into one seat per row.

 

Exactly what I was thinking Larry!!! Can they somehow make it the first single person launched coaster!?!?

As long as they don't get rid of Dodonpa. I was nervous for a moment when I saw that announcement on their Facebook page. I wasn't sure what they meant by closing (one of those lost in translation moments). Dodonpa is one most exciting coasters I've ever ridden and is reason enough for me to return to Fuji Q the next time I'm in Japan. Freaking love Dodonpa!

The train will still leave half empty.
