You know, I was wondering that myself. Just look at:

Fujiyama-black and white
Linear Gale-black and gray
LaQua-White and gray
Steel Dragon-at least it has a little red!
Ultra Twister-white
Bake 'em away toys.

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.

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.

Happy Coastering!

I wonder if they are going to make any colored TA2K coasters. I think they look good white.

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.

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?????
