Let me first say this was the best trip to a park in my life I got on lots of coasters and had a great time. I will rate the rides from 0-5. 0 being worst 5 being greatest. I will list the rides in no order but here they are.

Fujiyama-4 1/2-10 minute wait

We went right to this and rode it twice. It has a great view of Mt. Fuji (sp?) and the overall ride is great. A little slow transitions but great ride

Dodonpa 5++++++-1 hour 20 min

I rode this second and it is now my #1 coaster. The launch is the best thing I have ever experienced. The hill is taken at a great speed. It has a nice swooping turn and tunnel before the 170 ft. hill. Great ride

Zola 7-3-Walk ON

Nice indoor coaster. The theming was very nice. But not much to say there.

Mad Mouse-4-Walk On

Racing Wild Mouse. Only one side running. Very very intense.

Double Loop-3+- 10 min wait

Nice intense loops. That's pretty much all there is though.

After that we left but it is a great park with a nice atmosphere and the scenery with Mt Fuji was great. Overall great park.

You got to ride Dodonpa. That launch looks amazing. Nice TR!

Are you sure you were there? Your Mad Mouse description is a little off.

Fujikyu Highland did have two wild mouse before, but they never raced and weren't in the same area of the park. IN fact, one was minature. Wait, I'm confused, what is he talking about?

I agree. There is no racing mouse there. Your description of Zola 7 is a off too. What gives? Are you sure you went there?

Your trip report is no more than what one could gather from looking at pictures on rcdb.com or coastergallery.com.

What about the Hospital attraction? (The largest dark ride/walk through in the world! It's almost more famous than Fujiyama over there! Took me 45 minutes to do!) The missle silo attraction? (Also a world class, one of a kind attraction!) The Gundam ride? The Red Tower? Their wonderfully themed flume? The Thomas coaster? Can you tell us something about any of them?

He joined July 3rd and has only made one post. This one. No responses or nothing. I think it's safe to say this ones a farce. Who posts a fake TR anyway? In the words of Bugs Bunny, "what a maroon!"

Rob, it has happened in the past. I remember someone sour over SD2K beating MF posting a fake trip report (claiming it was real) about Nagashima Spaland. It was great, I think the whole report was "SD2K totally sux and MF rulez!", or something to that effect. Man did people jump all over him!

Care to share an on-ride photo from Dodonpa or Fujiyama, JapanRida?

Fujiyama has one of the nicest quality on ride photos I've ever seen. I had mine framed. Also, at the place where you buy the on-ride photos there is a machine which sells (fake) gold keychains with the Fujiyama logo and stats, that then engraves your name and the date on them. Mine is one of my most beloved souvineers. It's beautiful, and personalized for free!

As opposed to the crappy on-ride photo that is taken on Steel Dragon 2000. Whoever thought that the turn before the lift made for a good photo spot was crazy.

Anyway, Fujiyama is a sweet ride. Peabody, did you get to take a spin in the front seat?

TOGO!

Yes I did. It was about a 15-30 minute wait all day. I snagged a front seat ride and a back seat ride too. (I think I got 4 rides total.)

You said it, PT300!...SD2000 has the world's worst place for an on-ride. My first ride I didn't see the camera and I just couldn't figure out where in the ride it was taken :) I kind of like how they put the pic of the drop next to your photo. (I put mine as my info photo here) I got every on-ride photo in Japan I could because I had SUCH a blast there. I also got one of White Cyclone and one of Splash Mt. at Tokyo Disney. I also burned aout 12 rolls of film just on coasters there! (Plus about another 12 of non-coaster things) That was a hefty developing bill, but I got some beautiful prints. I'm goign to have to blow up this one to poster size: http://www.coastergallery.com/japan/N31.html

Has anybody here really ridden Dodonpa? If so, I have a question about it. Does it have the same recorded pre-lauch spiel that Hypersonic has (the one that goes, at least in part, "Please keep your head back against the head rest. Your arms must be down. Prepare for launch.")? If so, is it in Japanese, English, or both? I'd lean toward them having it in both.

Oh, and just so all of you know, I haven't ridden Hypersonic. I know about the spiel from watching POV videos of it several times.

I'm not sure, but (as long as it's operating--please keep your fingers crossed for me) I might be the first person from this site to be riding on Dodonpa. I'll be going to Fuji-Q next week. I'm getting nervous just thinking about it. Seriously, my hands are sweating like crazy as I type this.
