I've always wanted a Meisho brochure :lmao: or for the matter, any brochure from a manufacturer. I've sent emails but haven't got any, so I guess I'd have to go to IAAPA to get brochures. As for the sound, I think those are tire screeches. Even Vortex at Great America has tire screeches on some parts, but Moonsault Scramble probably burned up more tires.

I wrote to Walter Bolliger once and he replied quickly. He sent some brochures too.

I skated the ice rink under Moonsault in the winter of 99. It was actually quite a beautiful place to go in the winter with Fuji right next door and all. The ice rink in the summer was an extreme eyesore, however.

The parks in Japan mostly stay open year round. So riding the coasters during a snow storm at 32 degrees is fairly common.

Common, yes. Fun? Eh...well...

I'll try again then =) Oh, and I can't wait to see the Meisho brochure, since I've seen enough Intamin already. Meisho always seemed more exotic to me than Intamin, albeit rougher than Intamin. And I wonder how Vekoma was involved with the ride. I thought maybe the lift, yet Meisho's Loop Coaster at Toy Kingdom http://www.rcdb.com/id1277.htm opened before Vekoma made their first Boomerang coaster. ^And I think riding coasters in the snow sounds fun!

I believe when the Toy Kingdom shuttle loop opened it was the tallest ride in the world for a while. At least thats what ive read on a couple of japanese sites.

Also Shane ill be interested to see what Meishio stuff you have. looks like you have older versions of the brouchures i have so i'll upload some later if they are different :) will be nice to compare

Hey all

it appears the SFMM of the East is building a new water raft ride this year.

Height: 18m

Time: 4:30sec

http://www.fujikyu.co.jp/data/news_pdf/ ... masuka.pdf

and new construction photos here

from what ive heard Fuji-Q is lacking in its water ride and family ride line-ups so this should be a nice edition

Mullets never go out of style!

Looks like a variation on ABC Rides BAYERN PARK_Wildwasser Rafting.

Cool idea to have the drop from the whirl pool.

EDIT: Forgot to say thank you for putting up the info on the new ride. ;)
