Discuss theme parks, roller coasters, and mules!

I really like the look to the new entrance plaza! The funny photo ops are really cool! That food looks amazing!
Question for Robb: IIRC, weren’t all of the rides independently operated by different vendors at one time? So, has Fuji-Q had a single entity come in and unite everyone, making it a “corporate” type park, which explains the newer (and I think, better) enhancements?

Great to hear that Fuji-Q may have finally turned a corner in a good way. I always thought that the park looked like tons of fun, but in almost every trip report that I would read, nope...still crappy operations with horrible waits (or unopened attractions).

Yet another great report, thanks for sharing. I'm glad to hear Do-Dodonpa is still just as good as ever. Definitely a bucket list park, along with Nagashima!

Fuji-Q is awesome. I really enjoyed Eejanaika with the new S&S Trains, it feels soooo much better than X2.

From what I gathered from when I was over there last year, Fuji-Q is owned by a company that operates the train line that goes to the park, a bus line or two that go to the park and Mt. Fuji, and a bunch of hotels and other tourist destinations around Mt. Fuji. Most parks seem to operate like this as Tobu Zoo is part of the company that runs the train line to their park as well as Tokyo SkyTree and the Seibu Group owns a train line or two (I think?), Sea Paradise, a few hotels, and Toshimaen.
I'm glad you guys had a great visit and it gets me excited for when I go back this year. I'm going to miss taking the train up as it was a very beautiful route through the Japanese Alps, but if the bus is going to get me there before opening, then I'm taking the bus!

It looks like all of you had a great time at Fuji-Q! And I think too, the "Haunted Hospital" was in need of "something"
in it's place, when we were there in 2013. It had a good, long run.
The Fuji-shaped food is awesome!!! And that front entry "village" looks amazing too! So much done,
that looks to actually improve the park experience for everybody.
Did they still have the same kind FastPass system, like you and Elissa had to deal with back in 2013, Robb?
Or was it now more streamlined, and faster, etc? I'm just curious.
Thanks for the continued update of your TR, Robb. Much appreciated. I MISS JAPAN.

Didn't get on the Lucky Cat? We really enjoyed that when we went a few weeks ago! Japan Cool (the splash boat) was closed when we went, as was panic clock and the hospital.

This wasn't our first visit to the park. We've ridden it before and I didn't find it all that amazing.

looks like y'all had an incredible time in Japan..can't believe you were there a month and if flew by so quickly.
thank you again so much for the reports! Loved following along both on Twitter and on here. not quite as good as actually being there with you, but a nice consolation prize for those of us stuck here in the States (or wherever a TPR member might live)
wonderful report thus far, and just as excited for the final installment (s)? .. .back at Tokyo Disney.

Day Twenty Three - Benyland & Lina World!
Today we traveled 300 kilometers north of Tokyo for a couple of smaller, quirky, but fun parks that we hadn't been to in about ten years. Both of them feature some pretty "interesting" rides and the parks themselves are nice so we thought we'd go a little north today and check out these places once again...
Now, POST YOUR COMMENTS!!!!
After all, we took the time to write this report, the least you can do is post something nice about it! Click HERE for Part Twenty Four of our TPR Japan 2018 Report!
