^ It's certainly not High Roller size. It's perched at one of the highest points in the park so it looks bigger than it actually is. I'd put it in the 250-300 foot range.

Edit - Apparently I was 44 feet off of my guess. It's been 4 months and there was a lot of Kirin and Sapporo on that trip. Forgive me.

That one is 105m (about 344 feet) tall. The Vegas wheel suffers from being surrounded by GIANT buildings which diminish its true size. Japan has several wheels all over 300 feet tall!

Great TR of Mitsui, Aaron. That was definitely one of my fave parks during any TPR tour
I took to Japan that included it. The size of it all really shocked me, with so much room
to move around. And that McDs on property there, was always a welcome sight. And the
stand up/sit down coasters were really cool to ride, esp. with the airtime on the stand up!

I take it, you didn't do the "Ten Times, Your Name-On-A-Stick" Ultra Twister thing, there?

Or... did you? :evil:

There is just so much random stuff at this park. I didn't even realize they had a "jungle cannibal treehouse."

Great TR! Mitsui Greenland was a big surprise for me. Their coaster lineup is solid for a park of this size and all the random rides around the park make it such a perfect place to enjoy a full day at. Their trampoline was pure fun, I really like things that makes everybody look like kids again.

^ Well, hopefully that net's strong enough. :p

In my past two visits there I never saw, or heard of, anybody falling off that thing.
