I dont know if this has been a topic in the past but the rollercoaster finally opened up again in September.
I cant believe this hasnt been talked about ever well at least i cant remeber but, i think this thing doesnt get enough attention that it proably deserves.
I am really just starting stuff. Sorry if this has been already posted
About time, don't ya think?
The Japanese are really superstitious about these sort of things, that's why it didn't open up for three years. It easily could have opened up in a couple of months after the incident, but didn't because of the superstitions.
About the ride itself, I've never been on it, but from what I've heard is that the lift takes forever (I think there can be two trains on the lift hill at once) and it gives crazy air. It honestly looks like a really big Magnum from the track color & tunnels.
That was a pretty funny story
I could have read a book on the lift. As for the ride, think giant Steel Force/Mamba and you pretty much getthe idea.
.....but from what I've heard is that the lift takes forever (I think there can be two trains on the lift hill at once) and it gives crazy air.
Do you normally go to Japan that you might possibly, just coincidentally, be in the area?
I mean, Knott's/MM/Disney if you're in LA, IoA/Disney if you're in Florida.. or even some of the other US Parks if you happen to be road tripping around.. but Japan? Not exactly stopping for milk at the grocery store on your way home. :)
With that said, I'm with you there on wanting to ride it! :) I'm just 99.9% sure that when I do, the trip will be to Japan for the purpose of going to parks (along with some other sight-seeing)

White Cyclone doesn't look too shabby either. :)
If you're planning on going to Japan to ride White Cyclone, save the airfare.
(Of course there's a LOT of amazing stuff to do in Japan, and I can't wait to go back, but White Cyclone is NOT one of those things...)
"You seem healthy. So much for voodoo."
However, on my second ride, the same day I might add, it was brutally rough.
Perhaps one train is good and one train is bad?
Audioslaved: Sometime when search is back up, dig up my detailed trip report from 2001....it's a killer park. It's like the Cedar Point of Japan. But, we all know that DisneySea is the real reason to visit Japan :) (Heck, Tokyo Disneyland alone totally craps all over any American DIsney park in my book! :) ) *** Edited 11/29/2006 11:28:02 PM UTC by Peabody***
