    Fuji-Q Highland

    I went to Fuji-Q highland in late November this year on a weekday, here are my thoughts. We got the priority (fast pass) tickets for the main coasters, despite arriving at the park at midday and leaving at around 3/4pm we had no issues getting them for the times we wanted. Their website is hideously complicated and you need a Japanese credit card to buy fast pass online, so just buy them on the day or as an add on through one of the popular tour websites (I got my ticket through voyagin). You don’t go to this park for theming. It’s quite like a fairground in that way, there aren’t themed ‘lands’ from what I could see. It’s essentially the opposite of Disneysea in that it has no theming and it’s all about the rides. On to those... Do-Dodonpa - great ride, the launch is so fast you can barely react and wow you’re outside already. Aged well considering it’s 17 or so years old. Would defo like to ride again! Fujiyama - god this ride made Colossus look smooth. It’s an old coaster and it felt like it. It’s quite a long coaster which is good but it was very uncomfortable to ride. They were running one car and the loading times were super slow, I can see why the queues take forever. Takabisha- not a fan of the sequencing on the steep part, it actually seemed like it wasn’t as exciting as e.g. obvlivion at Alton Towers. Nice little launch near the start. The ride itself is very similar to Saw, definitely it’s long lost twin, just with no theming. Eejanaika was sadly down for maintenance. So in summary it was a fun way to spend a few hours. It’s not a ‘pretty’ park by any means, though the view to Mt Fuji was spectacular. I would recommend the priority passes if you do go! If you’ve been to eg six flags and/or europapark maybe this isn’t a must do park but it’s worth the trip if you’re in the area.

    I mean this is clearly a troll lol but regardless I tie mine up to be safe 😂 even if it isn’t ripped out, you end up looking like you’ve been dragged through a hedge if you don’t tie it up lol.

    I thought you already did?? But come on seriously, it's funny but at the same time surely you'd realise the second it posted that you were logged into the wrong account and remove it?

    Nope it's still gone I'm afraid, but as it's a coaster I've ridden I don't see why I can't include it in an all-time top 10 of my favourite coasters.

    Wildmouse at Number 2 / 1 ??? I thought they knocked that thing down? Didn't know it still lived on, I must ride it next time I'm up in Blackpool.

    Remind me, if you ever make a mistake or a comment to make a big deal out of it.

    I know there's been reduced gate figures at PB this year but blimey, they must be getting really desperate for money... 😂 Unbelievable.

    Nemesis Inferno

    Every time I've been this year they've been working. Its a cool effect actually.

    This is the only thing I have to look forward to all year lads, so no pressure or anything. Would be handy not to have to make too many changes to my signature tbh.

    Park Operations

    Tbh I worked a snow day and stealth was open shortly after the park, and nemesis around lunch time, most flats were open as normal ....

    Nemesis Inferno

    I had no idea those geyser effects even existed. They must have not been working for quite a while. Then again, I don't really visit Thorpe park that often to really notice missing effects.

    Vampire

    This ride used to be such a spectacle. It's sad that the kids of today can't experience its greatness. Can you imagine a beloved disneyland ride ending up in this state? No you can't, because disney would never let that happen. Is it wrong to want a disney-style guest experience from UK theme parks?

    Nemesis Inferno

    Surprised - the geysers especially have been on and working for a good couple years now! Think they go of every other train.

    Nemesis Inferno

    It's fantastic to see effects fixed around the ride like the foggers and the geysers that I've rarely ever seen working in person (and never synched with the ride as intended), a very cool effect!

    Nemesis Inferno

    New lift chain 2019 - clearly don't want a repeat of The Swarm (which is only 6 years old vs. Nemmy Inferno which is a whopping 15 years in comparison). Almost got excited when they said a "big project" until they specified what it was. The thumbnail of the video shows just how much of the queue line goes underneath the ride and it is my favourite queue line for this reason alone.

    Park Operations

    It's almost akin to the idiocy of Cedar Fair parks closing EVERY SINGLE RIDE as soon as there's a spot of rain... Like even some drizzle was enough to make them close Blue Streak temporarily!

    Park Operations

    The restrictions changed last year, where the park decided to be more strict following long-term considerations after the Smiler incident. Each ride has operating conditions set out by the manufacturer. In many cases, these aren't strict and have several variables related to them (a ride running for 10 hours straight is not going to stall the second the temperature goes 0.1C below the recommended temperature, for example). Merlin are now following these recommendations strictly though. Following them strictly means that if the temperature does go below 0.1C or whatever, even for a second, the park stop running the ride, and require the temperature to be at the minimum operating temperature for a set period of time thereafter. It's a ridiculous system, as with something as complex as rides, a flat cut off condition - bar for extremes - is a bad idea. So the conditions aren't new, but how the park view them is.

    I'm actually not going to be attending this at all, as I am DJing quite late on Friday night.
