Bandit at Yomiuriland

Wednesday, March 27, 2002 5:41 PM

I have seen about 2 pictures of the Bandit at Yomiuriland in Japan. I have gotten very interested in this coaster recently even though it is a TOGO design. Can anyone provide any pictures about this coaster.

I picked up some books on Japanese parks when I was over there that had some amazing pictures...the most beautiful I've ever seen of a coaster. It goes through gorgeous trees and flowers, including a ton of cherry blossoms. On top of that, part of it is set near water. Absolutly stunning! This past year they ran it backwards too. Unfortunately, my Japanese friend says it's quite a headbanger thanks to the OTSRs. (It doesn't invert)

Thanksfully TOGO got smart and didn't put OSTRs on Fujiyama (the one TOGO I really liked!)

The OTSR thing on Bandit is just sad. I hate perfectly good coasters ruined by OTSRs like Revolution and such.

Go to http://www.asovini.com/screamer/e/mainhome_e.html and check out the video. Decent vid and a perfect example of the ride. That special something about Bandit is all the hills are stereotypical camelbacks. That is what makes it so unique.

Peabody, the OTSRs only hurt in the back seat on the first drop. Not that bad at all, but then again, I am not much of a complainer....:)

It really looks like an interesting coaster. I hope one day to get out to Japan to ride some of their monsters.
