Wow. The very small group of people that had the the front seat on a roller coaster's final ride while the train is engulfed in a fireball is a club I'd like to join, assuming the other members survived.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Cedar Fair should purchase the Titan Max trains for Magnum at Cedar Point!

Sad to see Space World go. Last year, the park felt dead already since it was empty in the middle of the summer, but it certainly has some nice rides. I also liked that the park was in the middle of the city. Not that it felt like a city park, but the higher rides provided some nice views. I hope at least the bigger rides will find a new home.

Still, I can only wish those S&S trains on Titan will be scrapped might the ride find a new place. Some of the worst coaster trains I ever encountered. My manly parts still hurt when I think back to my ride on Titan.

I feel like I like this park "sentimentally" a bit more so than I did when I visited (no, not just because it closed). It felt like a B+ park in comparison to some of the other places in Japan--of course there's Disney, but my favorite comparable park to Space World is easily Mitsui Greenland. But, man, I have some fond memories from my two stops there, and it's a shame to see such a fun, quirky park go the way of the dodo.

I'm really hoping that some of these coasters find a second life elsewhere... Zaturn would be welcome in Florida.

FYI Aeon Mall (a large mall company in Japan) has bought/leased the Space World lot and as soon as rides are removed they will start work on a large shopping/dining/cultural complex expected to be completed in 2021. Hoping that 'removed' means relocated!

I'd like to buy a vowel!

No, they shouldn't.

Ah, the one ride that got away when I visited Space World on a "rain out" day in 2015. I hope it finds a home at another park with the giant rocket backdrop.
