DoDoDonpa 100% lived up to the hype and the launch is unlike any other coaster element (airtime, zero g, lateral, etc) in that it is just best described as pure bliss. Following the launch the dip down provides a great pop of air and the loop pulls some serious g's at the bottom while giving some hangtime at the top. Since the trains use real tires it is bouncy at times so depending on your tolerance that will effect how much you like it. It's not a jackhammer by any means.

Make the visit to ride it if you can you will not be disappointed! Also it shoots fire at night. :lmao:

^ There's nothing quite like the anticipation for that launch once you hear the "LAUNCH TIME" audio.

Yea we were lucky enough to ride her last month and damn, that "LAUNCH TIME!" audio is legendary. What a ride.

And yes it's extremely bumpy, especially in the back row.

The parent company of Fuji-Q Highland has announced that a new large coaster will debut at the park in the Summer of 2022! For reference, this addition will cost approximately 3.6 billion yen which puts it on par with how much was spent to build Eejanaika in 2006

I'd insert a joke about how low capacity it will be, but my visits to Fuji have been steadily getting better and better and most of their coasters when they opened were record-breakers (although I still don't understand how Eejanaika's inversion were counted) or looked pretty unique (the pretezl loop shuttle, the indoor shooting thing) l, so I'm really curious what will show up.

^I'm with you on the inversion count. I visited in 2007, and simply couldn't see how one would say that there are 14 inversions. Even being generous with some of the ambiguous parts (the full-full and half-half), and even throwing in the overbank turn and initial rotation out of the station, that's still only 7 inversions. It's a mystery to me.

I wonder if it will go where the Tidal Wave type ride is near Eejanaika?

as I noted in my TR from the day we were there? . there were several closed attractions over there and I wondered out loud if something new/new theming was going to come in over there.

Given how big of an investment it is in conjunction with the park's fairly steady improvement, I'll definitely be keeping my eye on what develops.

I'm happy for Fuji Q! Please just be a coaster that holds more than 8 people per train. Really curious to see where it goes and who they are partnering with!

I just can't be excited for this until we have more information. Hoping for the best though!
