Nagashima Spa Land (NSL) Discussion Thread

Postby Imagineer Josh » Fri Jun 24, 2016 5:53 am

Hey everybody!

This thread is simple! Rather than having a million little threads about everything that goes on at Nagashima Spa Land, this thread is designed to consolidate it all into one user-friendly thread. Feel free to use it to post updates, trip reports, questions, comments, and of course, general discussion. For pictures and videos of the park as well as past updates, see TPR's Park Index Page.

Below are some links to past updates from the park, you may be interested in. Enjoy!

Who would've thought? Arashi is a new S&S Free Fly Spin for Nagashima Spa Land in 2017. This is really a surprise, especially considering they just got a B&M Flyer 2 years ago!

Are these coasters S and S' attempt at the Intamin version, are they basically the same?
Note to self: don't be stupid...

Current top coaster = Olympia Looping.

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

This will make a great addition to the park. Those S&S Freespins look very fun (I haven't ridden one yet)
check out my RCT3 projects!

The S&S Free Spins are like the Intamin Zacspins except less intense.

Ahh that's what that empty area where the Top Spin used to be is for! Nice to see Nagashima Spaland keep getting rather modern rides, the park was very nice but overall feels like it was stuck in the 80's.

I'm curious to know how the track fabrication process will work for these 4D coasters now. I remember hearing that RMC won't be making the track for these anymore, but will allow S&S to use the patent for ibox??

Sweet! I have a sort of middling opinion on this park, but it was certainly on my must-get-back-to list for the awesome-looking flying coaster, and because it has a fairly decent ride collection as it is.
