So great to hear that Kawasemi is still running great after a decade of operation! Is it still a "higher up" in the Alvey rankings?
Coaster Count - 83

Top 10 under construction as I'm on my trip.

Yay! Another update! Today we visited two parks again: Yokohama Cosmoworld and Sea Paradise! Despite some rainy weather today we had a great time at both parks as the major rides were all open and both parks feature a lot of "indoor stuff" so that's a good thing! We love visiting Comosworld as the parks staff and management are always so nice and welcoming! Highly recommend when visiting Japan!

Image
Good morning from Yokohama Japan! I’ve got my Japanese Starbucks and I’m happy!

Image
Cosmoworld is home to a giant Ferris Wheel with GREAT views of Yokohama.

Image
Yokohama Cosmoworld is also home to Diving Coaster: Vanish! The only “under water” roller coaster in the world!!! (We swear! We would never lie to you!) :Pr

Image
Are you guys all ready to go “under water?”





Image
The dark rides at Yokohama Cosmoworld are super cool!

Image
This one you use an augmented reality app to shoot creature in the ride.

Image
I’m not exactly sure what we were doing, but it was fun!

Image
Image
At the Alien spooky creature shooting dark ride everyone was given tokens based on your score and then you got some sort of trading cards from the machine!

Image
Why don’t we have cool stuff like this in the US parks???

Image
Image
Next up we tried Cosmoworld’s new VR attraction you say in this vehicle that moved back and forth down the track while your seats moved in sync with the motion on the VR media.

Image
It most certainly was interesting!

Image
Image
There are attractions on both sides of the water.

Image
Your Yokohama Cosmoworld ride tickets will work at either section of the park.

Image
Great morning at Yokohama Cosmoworld! Huge thank you to the staff and management of the park for all their hospitality!

Image
We made a quick stop at Sea Paradise for their amazing drop tower and Surf Coaster.

Image
Image
The signs advertising the park at the train were just so amazing and Japanese!

Image
The girls rode Blue Fall... still one of the tallest drop rides in the world!

Image
And because it was lightly raining, the park gave them all rain gear to wear so they wouldn’t get wet at 310 feet in the air! I love Japan!

Image
Surf Coaster at Sea Paradise is actually pretty darn good!

Image
Especially for a “Togo” coaster that’s 20+ years old!

Image
We tried Japanese Shake Shack today!

Image
Image
Image
Happy to report it’s just as awesome as US Shake Shack!

Image
Image
Here’s the menu for Japanese Shake Shack!

Image
I did have the blueberry “Flavor of the Month” Shake! Delicious!

Image
Image
I went to Sea Paradise and all I got was this Whale Shark Meat Bun! :lol: :lmao: :p

Now, POST YOUR COMMENTS!!!! After all, we took the time to write this report, the least you can do is post something nice about it! :P

Did they still have the Lemur cage where you could basically go into the cage?
What no Red Pandas? ;)


Yes to the Lemur Cage, and to some terrifying aviary where a giant bird almost attacked the girls! Stupid animals that are just basically a fox don’t get featured in Trip reports! :)

I wrote the book about donkeys!

I am loving all the food adventures in these post. Even the display sushi looks super fresh!

Don't put that donkey on the floor!

I just tried korean shake shack the other day after they started expanding recently. There was one opposite a Wallace and Gromit exhibition so decided to try it out.

Every new installment of this TR makes me want to go to Japan more and more! Seems like an incredible country with an awesome culture, great things to do and see, and that’s not even considering the amusement parks and incredible public transportation! (I love trains and am very upset that I rarely get to ride them where I live :()

This is an absolutely fantastic TR! I can’t wait to see more! :b :br :b
