You make this park look OK Chuck (maybe by focussing on Thomas Town quite a bit!). At least I got the two credits that I needed, but some of the operations were so frustrating to witness!

What confused me in the Haunted Hospital was they briefed us on safety and rules in the first room, and then did the pre show in the second room and went over safety for a second time.

oh and not forgetting about having the remove shoes in order to ride Eejanaika and having to remove my well secured watch, only to place it into a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo which is locked by a solid metal key which is worn on a flimsy and loose thin band around my wrist which has no chance at all of flying off and injuring someone unlike my totally secured watch, on Takabisha!

Loved the report from your day at Fuji, Chuck.

They made me go back to the fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo to put a KLEENEX in! Seriously!

I still can't believe Neil did the whole Haunted Hospital! Good job!

And great Photo TR, as always, Chuck!
Check out my Photo Trip Report from my Epic Asia Trip! Tons of coasters and a good helping of culture too! The first legs in Japan and Korea are done, and now we're up to the TPR China trip!

I am also part of the fuji-q kleenex club, the japanese riders were not impressed that I had to put it in a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo, Seriously i'd have been happier just to put it in a trash can but no I had to go find my fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo.

I've gone pantless!

Oh, yes, I'd forgotten about that little example of Fuji Q's bizarre operations. Although providing the lockable containers in the station is a good idea (they did this at Cosmoworld for Vanish, too), the restrictions against wristwatches made zero sense.

Where's your awesome picture of you guys standing next to the op with the 'closed for rain' sign where you can see her shadow because it was bright and sunny out!?!?

That photo and the "Take off your wristwatch, put it in a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo, and put a loose key around your wrist instead" are two prime examples of FujiQ's quest to be the SFMM of Japan!

It was nice to have a relatively "laid back" day at Fuji Q, but it's still not a park I would recommend to anyone, unless they were diehard credit whores--and then only if they were willing to spring for the passes.

It's always a bit sad and hilarious to hear about the crazy ops stories of Fuji Q. I'll count my trip there way back when as a blessing since I didn't experience any of the ridiculous procedures everyone refers to.

Glad everyone managed to get all their credits in and have a decent day.
