Our "TPR Japan Tour" has officially begun! The first park of the trip is Yomiuriland, a nice Japanese amusement park that we have watched grow and transform over the years. They have removed their wooden roller coaster many years ago (an improvement to the park, IMO) and added super cool very "Japanese" rides like "Spin Runway" (and fashioned themed roller coaster....yes, you read that correctly) and a "Cup O Noodles" themed rapids ride. These new additions are amazing!
Be sure to follow our Twitter and Instagram Stories for live updates from our trip!
Anyway, on to a few photos & videos...
This morning is the first day of our TPR Japan Tour! Today we are at Yomiuriland! Filming and fun on some of the highlight attractions at the park! It's a nice small group! That's how we like doing TPR tours these days! If you're ever interested in join one of our tours, you should email us!
We have started our day Yomiuriland with some early ride time on Bandit! The parks signature roller coaster!
Doing some filming this morning on Bandit!
Should have some awesome new footage to share soon!
Not only was it awesome meeting a TPR fan working at Yomiuriland...
...but he was also sporting a Knoebels shirt here in Japan! AWESOME!!!
I’ve always loved the “Standing & Loop” coaster Yomiuriland! Same track, but two different trains! One is a “stand up” train...
...and one is a “sit down” train! The ride is super fun!
This is a “fashion show” themed roller coaster! It is totally weird and amazing!!! We have awesome video to share with you soon!
So this is a “Cup O Noodles” themed rapids ride and it is ever bit as screwed up and awesome as you would expect!!!
At the “Jurassic Car” ride...
they have costumes you can dress up in...
and then go on a Vintage Car adventure with dinosaurs!!! Oh, Japan! Do you ever stop being amazing!!!
It was awesome meeting more TPR fans today at Yomiuriland!
Here’s a few more pics of Bandit...
This coaster is celebrating 30 years this year!
Here's the view from the front seat of Bandit!
Some amazing flavors in Japanese CocaCola Freestyle machines!
Why can’t we have Wild Grape Coke at home? (It was delicious!)
"Spin Runaway" is a "Fashion Show" themed roller coaster, which is part dark ride, part spinning coaster, and part video game! It's totally weird and completely AMAZING!!!
Bandit currently is running a “Stop & Go” program, meaning when the train gets to the very top of the lift, it will stop for 10 seconds so you can enjoy the view of Tokyo! I love Japan!!!
Yomiuriland has this cool “Autopia” mixed with Test Track mixed with a video game car ride! Again, such cool funky rides in Japan!
Yomiuriland has a giant Ferris Wheel because it is a national law in Japan that all amusement parks must have a giant Ferris Wheel!
New this year at Yomiuriland was a Zamperla Disk-O! These are always such fun rides!
Land Dog Butt!!!
Time to head out of Yomiuriland!
Always loved the Gondola ride that you take from the train station to get up to the park!
Had a great time at Yomiuriland today! Was nice to see the new expansions and attractions at this park from our last visit!
