Why are so many hypers red? Why is X pink? Why are B:TR's dark? Why is the sky blue?
There is no good reason aside from the parks in Japan fancied white, and they got it....

-Fujiyama was made black and gray to symbolize strength(it their thing, I don't get either)
-Air Thrust coaster come in white as a standard, I don't think they've gotten into a variety of color yet
-Linear Gale is black because it's black, no explination for that
-All but one Ultra Twister is white, so since Japan has quite a few, you'll see a lot of white
-Sansei, a Japanese manufactuer, is acustomed to making their coasters white
-Expoland has built all their coasters in white to go with a very unique theme to the park, I can't explain it but it's got a lot to do with spirits and peace.
-Senyo is known for there many adventure coasters following the fashion of Schwarzkopf's non loopers, and they are usually seen in agua, white, or blue.

Seriously, WHY IS X PINK?!
Why do they report power outages on TV?
Blue and white are supposed to be relaxing, peaceful colors. Due to the high stress lifestyle that many lead in Japan, I wonder if the parks were just looking for something a little more peaceful looking...just a guess.

"Have fun stormin' the castle!"
84 coasters in Track Record!! Hypersonic XLC # 100 in July. Waiting for the 305 foot drop tower in 2003. Thank you PKD.
Having gone to many of the parks, I can say that many coasters get hidden in the cracks in Japan. Go to Nagashima Spaland, and you can't even see 2 of the rides without some investigation. Expoland does come off a little boring due to the whiteness of the rides, but I can assure you it is also really interesting to take the train by the park, and look at all that white. To see Orochi, the Raptor clone, in a white with pinkish track is a tad lame, but the ride is better in my book than the original. I don't care about colors. I like the weirdness of Japan. The beauty and the strangeness. A friend of mine once called Japan "the land of Zen and sugar-free cotton candy." I couldn't agree more. I can't wait to move there.
Lewis, how was your trip? E-mail me.
What is it about the baby, you may ask???
I actually have a resonable explanation as to why Japanese coasters are white..
In Japan, white is considered to be a lucky colour. Along with blessing their automobiles, white cars are extremely popular. White cars cost more money to buy in Japan...
I'm assuming that since white is a lucky colour in Japan, they'd like to paint their coasters white as well, as a form of good luck!!
Why do people line up for bad movies, simply for the fact that the words 'STAR WARS' are in the title?????
