The old wheel wasn't operating, but I don't know whether it was down for maintenance or down for the count.

I was curious so I went to have a look since with Robb and Elissa's help I managed to make a list of the websites where you could find the Rehab Schedule since Japanese&Korean parks are awesome at letting customers know well ahead of time if you look on their native language websites, I thought they might have a notice about retiring it but there wasn't and after some clicking found both are still listed on the family attraction page: http://www.tobuzoo.com/park/list/classic/

I was going to say how strange it is that a park would have 2 similar rides so close together but then I remembered that Lotte World just opened its 4th 3D Screen ride in the park this year and Everland built it's 3rd chairlift/gondola last year and second safari ride next to the other this year :P

Love the photo of Japanese Goats pretending to be Chick-Fila-A cows. Also The more I hear about Mega Lite's the more it makes me want to ride one. Sounds like they are just full of airtime fun.

Have to ask, How happy is Angus that you are home from this journey?

Angus is pleased to be out of cat jail and free to wander in the evenings again. Kawasemi, like the other Mega Lites, is a great ride--especially after it "warms up" a bit.

Man, I need to get to Japan! I really want to ride a Mega Lite. These things look awesome! Also how did you like Hollywood Dream backwards?

"Hollywood Dream backwards" (aka, "Backdrop") was interesting--definitely more intense than going forward.

^That's my favorite of my DisneySea pictures, too. But it's nearly impossible to take a "bad" picture in that park. ;)
