Dont' think I'll be heading over to Tokyo any time soon. I can only imagine the kind of lines they have! :) Couple hundred thou in line at a time maybe? Did they build the coaster over and around houses? How do they have room over there for an amusement park with all those damn people? Curious.

I saw the photos. The park is located on top of a mountain, with not much else around. There is plenty of room for an amusement park in Taiwan. It is not downtown Hong Kong.

Wow. I had always dreamed of this type of roller coaster, and had once drawn a crude sketch of it a few years. I wish that they'd build one in the US so I could ride it.;-)

Hong Kong isn't on Taiwan. Hong Kong is on mainland China. Taiwan is the little island off of the mainland.

I know Hong Kong is not in Taiwan, I was just using it as a comparison between one area of Aisa and another.
