I was one of those who had an inside seat (back row) on Euthanasia and I liked it. That being said - waiting two and a quarter hours for the ride sucked. IMHO the people running this park have been to Six Flags advanced course in park mismanagement and customer abuse. Frankly unless you really, really, really, etc. just have to ride their rides don't go here.

I agree with Gus and I had an outside back-row seat, possibly/probably the exact same one Robb got for riding. And I liked the coaster! But again, waiting for so very long would NOT become a regular experience I would want to persue again and again.

The park's Dipping Dots were good, though...

:wink:

Next up - Universal Japan!

I have SO MANY PHOTOS from this day as IMO it was one of the best parks of the trip. Even better that they opened up a new B&M "hyper" (it's really more of a mini-hyper) and it was pretty decent.

I'll post a lot more photos and some video clips when we do the full updates, but for now here's a glimpse of our day....
universal01.jpg
Elissa and KidTums are annoying matching mutant humans that must be destroyed!
universal01a.jpg
Universal Japan has just opened "Hollywood Dream", a new B&M "mini-hyper" coaster earlier this year.
universal2a.jpg
The "Gimmick" to the ride is that you can select the music you want to rock our to prior to leaving the station.
universal2b.jpg
Those giant speakers behind you means you can thump your brains out on this coaster! And no one will arrest you for doing so!
universal03.jpg
Just select the song you want, or if you're a dumbass, it will select one for you. Just hope it doesn't select "J-Pop 2" as that song was pretty lame!
universal3a.jpg
There is something very "Hulkish" about all this....
universal04.jpg
Overall, the ride was pretty good. It was nothing "earth shattering", but it was VERY fun. Some decent pops and floats of air, the music selection part was cool, just don't go in expecting Nitro or Goliath.
universal6a.jpg
When the sun goes down they turn on the little sparkely lights and when the train flys by it looks REALLY cool!
universal06.jpg
The Japanese LOVE their helixes!
universal05.jpg
OMFG HEAD CHOPPER! Casey! DUCK!!!
universal6b.jpg
I thought the way they tunneled through an existing building was a GREAT idea! It totally reminded me of some coaster I'd build in RCT where I'd be all "Crap, I can't connect it....well, let's just run it straight through this building!!!"
universal10b.jpg
We proceeded to head over to Snoopy Studio where the indoor Roller Skater was so everyone else could get their credit.
universal11.jpg
Joey managed to get a date!!! And her name was "Aska!" Does that count as two coaster credits?
universal12.jpg
Aska quickly broke up with Joey just after the ride. Since Jahan and Ryan weren't around, he consulted Lucy for some relationship advice.
universal13.jpg
Lucy said "Joey, you have a small penis, get used to dissapointment."
universal14.jpg
And speaking of small penises, gee...I wonder who might be over compensating here, hmmm?
universal15.jpg
Would KidTums like some awesome Melon Cremesoda Fanta too?
universal17.jpg
This park is so awesome! It's almost a clone of Florida's park, but all the rides are in the wrong spot!
universal17b.jpg
Water...BAD!
universal18.jpg
"I might have a small penis, but Ryan has a Delorean...."
universal21.jpg
FIRE!!! HOT!!!!
universal22.jpg

I love Japan! =)
universal29a.jpg
Hey Jahan! Citywalk had a place with ten, count 'em TEN different flavors of frozen Coke products!
universal30.jpg
OMG! The "Rabbit Burger" is back at McDonalds!!! Dan just kumdorilanded!!!
universal31.jpg
That night we ate the "Chicago Feast" and OMG, it was like eating 4 people from Illinios!!!

More pics coming soon!

The weird thing was, Bob and Ryan also wore identical red shirts as well. It was very creepy.
There's no problem too big that C-4 can't fix.

OMG, that meal you had looks Gi-normous!

And how was the Waterworld show, in comparison to USH?

I missed it, probably for the truncated 'Wicked' show in Oz I saw. Which was sweet and nice (and under 45 mins), but definitely NOT the good witch-bad witch version on Broadway, lol.

Or the Hollywood Dream, BTTF, Jaws, ET, Jurassic Park, or SPIDERMAN rides! Spidey was my very first and it just rocked, all four times I went on it!

And that wacky LIVE over-the-top "hostess" at Terminator 2: 3-D! Total Japanese script, but she was great, very funny to watch, and a Big Highlight of the shows I saw.

The best of all possible Universal and IOA parks in this one park, and it was RDA all the way.

:airtime:

^Having watched USH's version of Waterworld way too many times..I thought USJ had the better version on paper, but a lot of stuff wasn't working (most notably the jet ski jump). I liked that they set up the seaplane launch differently, how the hoverboat blows its fan towards the audience, and that the stage is different (the diving platform is on the left and not the right). But it's still about 95% the same exact show.

And I really hate Robb.
