It may look cool, but since it's going to Fuji-Q Highland...well, something in my gut tells me that this will suck somehow.

You all make this park out to be the Knotts of the far East!

Good intentions, bad execution...

If they're regular patrons of Fuji Queue, they would have to be more patient. ;)

Tripsdrill's rapids ride also features a whirlpool, but unlike Phantasialand's River Quest (which I think is an excellent ride), theirs is just scenery (no drop).

Fuji-Q building a Eurofighter for 2011

Another exciting project for next year is Gerstlauer’s largest roller coaster. The still-unnamed Launched Euro-Fighter will be a massive attraction and located in Asia. “We were very pleased with our first Launched Euro-Fighter, which opened at Hansa Park in 2009,” said Gerstlauer. “From a guest perspective, the launch and beyond-vertical drop are outstanding. From a technical standpoint, this coaster will be the debut of our four-tube track, which will save our customer’s considerable expense when it comes to foundation costs.

Hopefully it will be a decent coaster. Lots of Fuji-Q's rides aren't exactly good.

As long as it doesn't run only one car, I guess it could take care of the lines. But I'm sure Fuji-Q would figure out something to make it worse. Gotta live up to that tradition of 4 hour lines! :lmao:

Hmmm, what can I say positive about this project...

I like where they are putting it in the park.

Yup, that's about it. Can't wait to see how FujiQ tries to lower capacity on this one!

Everytime we've gone (including good weather days) operations have been bad. Like, worse than SFMM bad!
