Stupid Steel Dragon!!! Why the hell did you have to go chuckin' wheels off
the ride!!! GGGRRRR!!!!!
This sign translates into:
Dear Nagashima Patrons,
Steel Dragon 2000 is currently closed. We apologize for the inconvenience,
but it will not reopen until we figure out a way
to make the wheels stop flying off into the water park. Please enjoy the
water park at this time as it's "Flying Wheel Free."
Thanks for your understanding, and please enjoy our many other coasters that
don't seem to be chucking wheels at this time.
"OMFG! Where the hell is this ride??!!?"
"Dude! That ride is actually ON THE PARK MAP!!!!"
Dammit! It was closed that
day! Turns out one of the chicks chucked a wheel also!!!! GGRRRRR!!!
It's just amazing how efficient Japan is. Take a look at this assembly
line getting into the park.
1. Take your ticket, 2. slap on the wrist band, 3. cut the excess band part off!
Who would have thought that the Ultra Twister would have been one of our
favorite rides of the day!
This version still had the vertical lift hill!
Yay! Togo rides!!!
It might sound like a metal trashcan being thrown off a twenty story building,
but it's actually a REALLY fun ride!
Now it's three good Togo rides of the trip!
That smile means one of two things. Dan just found Diet soda in Japan or
he loves Togo rides! =)
Here we found another Schwartzkopf shuttle loop, only this one wasn't partially
The forward part was really good!
But it was pretty heavily braked on the way back, even being a 'flywheel'
This is as far as it made it up the back spike. =(
