Day Eight: Kobe Portopialand, Central Park, Kurashiki Tivoli Park

Today was another "three parks" day, but at least time was on our side today as Tivoli was open until 9pm tonight.

Once again I'll make this TR brief as it's late again and I'll let the photos tell the story. But here's a couple quick bullet points on each park:

Kobe Portopialand (Port-a-potty land since we couldn't pronounce it!) :lol:

Fun little place! Two really good Schwarzkopf coasters. They are no Shock Wave or Lisebergbanan, but they were both still pretty awesome! We've heard rumor the park was closing soon, but the place sure had no signs of that happening.

Central Park - I really thought there would be more to this park being that it's one of the few parks in Japan with a B&M. There really wasn't much here. A couple of really bizarre credits and a Batman clone!

Kurashiki Tivoli Park - What an interesting place. First off, it looks a LOT like Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen. The park was beautiful, and we finally got to see the lights of Tivoli! :P The two coasters there were just "ok" and the one kiddie coaster was really BIZARRE! It's themed to a full-sized train, only goes about 10 MPH at the most, and there are cars with "Baby Seats!" YES!!!!

I have posted the POVs of the two Schwarzkopf's from Kobe in the Members Only section....enjoy! :lol:

Anyway, onto today's photos!

That coaster is like the Big Thunder Mountain wannabe. But it would be cool if BTMR had seats like that instead of right behind the first car. Nice pics can't wait for more Asian craziness!

Looks like you guys are having a blast!



There are way too many Batman clones in the world. No one wants to be original.

"You, too, can own these plates for the prices shown!" :lol:

I'm glad there's no "Elissa contemplates rampage"-looking pic in this update... I may be speaking too soon for the next one, though. ;)

Guy's, really enjoying all the trip reports & photos as always.

I really hope Kobe Portopialand is not closing, as BMRX is one of my 'most wanted' coasters.

Be sad see more Schwarzkopf's going

Because we're all fatties, each day starts out with "Mister Donut." The odd thing is last year when we ate here the donuts had "no taste" and now they do. WTF happened?!??!


Simple. Missus Donut told Mister Donut that if he didn't make his donuts better, well, you can finish it from here :wink:

:lol: Great updates, great captions, great McD's :D

Coasters: 290

Why do I still have a donkey title???
