^Yeah, TDL or Disney Sea has NOTHING on that amazing display of theming!

I will admit it was badass when the clouds parted and we could actually see Mt. Fuji for a couple of minutes. But I could have sat out in the parking lot in a rusty lawn chair and awaited that moment, and had equally if not more fun.

Sorry if I'm really ragging on the place, but the majority of Japan parks are so much fun and so cool and FQ has potential, but the way it's operated totally kills it. I had fun because of who I was with, not because of the park. Ah well...

^ Yeah, pretty much. I've been to about 50 parks that have similar back drops or scenery.

That first picture looks like it could be Knoebel's. Yeah, seeing Mt. Fuji behind the park is cool, but any other direction isn't very impressive, IMO.

If you want to talk *IMPRESSIVE* backdrops for parks....

^HAHAHA!!!

Nice catch!

It was actually Tasmanian Devil Studios. It's a very small area of the park themed to Looney Tunes.

Are we sure Six Flags and Cedar Fair don't jointly own Fuji-Q? Cedar Fair designed, themed & paved it, and Six Flags runs and operates it. :?r

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

I must be the luckiest guy in the world when it comes to Fuji Q!

Went 2 weeks after you went and the park was like this: EVERY rides except Dodonpa and Eejanaika were walk on or 5-10 minutes waits.. Yes, even Fujiyama! Unfortunately, the Hamster coaster and Haunted hospital walkthrough never opened that day. It was cloudy all day, so I didn't see Mt. Fuji.

Agree about everything about Eejanaika. Horribly slow line (but hey, I only waited an hour!) and the most violent ride I have been on. Dodonpa on the other hand... I liked it! When I got out of the ride, the ride was a 2 hours and a half wait and it never went down after that. The launch is insane and the airtime ridiculous... It was a 45-60 minutes wait all day, except for a 3 hours breakdown, where we were forced to wait 45 minutes for all the "exit passes" to get through the ride.

The credit card thing was weird! I wanted to buy my on ride photo and a T-shirt from Dodonpa... but, no credit card and I never found an ATM that accepted my credit or debit card in the park.
