Steel Dragon 2000

Tuesday, September 23, 2003 6:05 AM
Umm...I was just planning a vacation, because we have a weekend off in October, and my family is indecisive on where to go, so I brought up Japan, with of course Nagashima Spaland, and SD2K in mind, cause it's there, and it's quite close living in Singapore. So, does anyone know if SD2K is open again, have any advice on the park in general, or on Osaka, or anything really? Thanks.

When you live in Japan, it happens to you. Your English skills deteriorate, quite honestly.

Bob, if you want, you can e-mail me about specifics. I'd be glad to help out. Peabody and I have enough info to get you around.

Don't miss other parks as well. There are a LOT of parks, and they are open year round in Japan. Make sure you get up to Tokyo. This way, you beat us all to Thunder Dolphin! :)

Yeah, with a Japanese wife and all, Rob has no idea what he is talking about.

Not that I would ever consider myself even slightly argumentative, (;)) but I can assure you that after spending even 2 short weeks in Osaka, my ei-go (English) is just plain silly sounding, and I was an English major.

Granted, that guy does sound a bit off, but I could see him being in a rush. Heck, there are a lot of 14 year old kids living in the US that have much worse typing skills. (not talking about you, Ryan.) :)

I think the last sentence was Colin's way of being polite: "I hope that helps." to paraphrase.

Hey Rob, do you write your lyrics?

If he's going from Singapore, which he is, that sounds pretty logical.

Eric, I don't do any lyrics for the band. I do, however, all the arranging.... so.... If you like what you hear, it's all my fault. ;)

If not, blame Brent. He's the bastard, anyway!

Exactly, and I don't want to hurt my rep as such either. ;)

Not really...it's an 8 hour 30 minute flight from KUS to Osaka. Cheap tickets are $1250 round trip for adults. Seems like $3750 for airfare for three folks, and 15 hours of flight time is a lot for a "weekend trip" :)

I wouldn't think twice about making an 8 hour drive somewhere for a weekend trip.

I guess if ya have the money, why not? I am assuming it's a long weekend.

Im sorry about my spelling and all that other stuff. But I dont really pay any attention to my spelling and my other stuff. Sorry and from now on I will watch my spelling. The person who was after my post or the second one after that is right about your english it starts to fall apart after you have lived in a place were they dont speak your main language.

Thanks guys. The flight is 6 1/2 hours from Singapore to Osaka, and yes, it is a bit expensive, but the company pays for like everything over here, since we originally lived in Chicago until i was 12. Also, it is a long weekend, it's Deepavalli, which is a Hindu holiday, and it's four days. Yeah, a bit short, but I think a full day at the park will do it, I hope. My mom also doesn't want to do all amusement parks, so unfortunately I probably won't get anywhere else.

nasai, what's your email, I do have a bunch of questions regarding the park, and how to get there, price, and the like. Thanks all.

And on a minor note, did we confirm if SD2K is running?
