Nasai, and Cmiesen have also ridden it.

As Jeff said, Chris and I have indeed ridden it. For opinions, and/or controversy, I can say that I really enjoyed it. Fast, loaded with airtime, and 8 amazing bunny hops to end it. *sigh* I need to get back to the 'CP of Japan' (as Peabody says). :) I won't even open up the MF vs SD2K can of worms.... oops, just did.

How long of a wait???

I'm sure the waits are shorter than the ones for MF.

I never waited longer than 15 minutes for SD2K. White Cyclone was a walk on all day. All the coasters, with the exception of the freefall ride, were walkons. In fact, it was so slow that I thought some of the rides were not open. Granted, this particular day was very rainy, and it was a Monday, and school was not out for their summer break, but every picture I have seen, and everyone I have talked to has said the same of their experiences too. Nagashima Spaland is first and foremost a WATER park, so the rides, although spectacular, aren't the first thing on their minds. It is also very far away from everything. Nagoya is 45 minutes away, and it is a huge city, but Spaland is on the end of a peninsula, off the beaten path, so getting there, or seeing it from a highway, is somewhat of a chore. Makes for a great day, if you can find it! :)
