So then maybe you should go visit, and then come and write your obnoxious post instead of quoting someone else's opinion as a "fact"

WTF does that mean dude? This wasn't a "one-off" experience I've had. I've been there more than once and I'm going back again next year. We've been there on a weekend, we've been there on a weekday, both were in the "off season." If you have some magical way of detecting when the park won't be crowded, more power to you! But I think you've read here that even on "dead days" people have waited 2+ hours for DoDonpa, and around an hour for the other 2 big rides.
THAT'S NOT ACCEPTABLE!!! Why don't people understand this? You keep saying how much potential the park has, but if it really had great operations, you wouldn't be waiting 4+ hours for the parks major coasters on a "dead day."
Our visit wasn't an exception, it was the "norm."
We have other people on this forum who went and said the place sucked ass. Sorry man, but just because one other site said it was awesome, I'm not about to take their word over MY OWN PERSONAL EXPERIENCE.
What day did you guys go?
Well, originally we were supposed to be there on a Thursday. But then a typhoon was due to hit that day, and knowing how Fuji-Q is in bad weather, we had to shuffle our days around. We looked at the park schedule and saw that there was a credit scheduled to be closed on the Friday (the day that Rich and some others went) and we opted for the Saturday because the weather showed as being the best that day, this is still a school day for many kids in Japan, and all the coasters were scheduled to be opened.
We knew it wasn't the best day to go being a weekend, BUT, when your options are:
1. Day where it's guaranteed rain
2. Day where a coaster will be closed.
3. Day where everything is open, but will be crowded.
We opted for #3.
Again, this was NOT my first visit to Fuji-Q. And for many people on our trip, it was not their first visit either. More people came away having a similar experience based on multiple visits as we did.

Have you been on any of them? I STRONGLY disagree. While they may be either the biggest or only ride of it's class in Japan. I certainly have been on *MUCH* better launched coasters, hyper coasters, Wild Mice, Kiddie Coasters, Suspended Coasters, and technically 4D coasters!

Based on what? Something you read at another site?!?!
While I have to say that *ANY* crappy park in the world can be made better by hitting it on a day where there is no crowd that doesn't all of a sudden make it a *great* park.
I completely believe that Fuji-Q has the potential to "not suck quite as much as the days I've been there", but I refuse to beleive that it has the potential to be a "great park."
IMO, Fuji-Q doesn't have anything that a "great park" would have. It doesn't have great coasters. It doesn't have great operations. It doesn't have great theming. It doesn't have great flat rides. It doesn't have great dark rides. It doesn't have great restaurants. I've "heard" it has a great walk-through, but the "not great" operations have prevented any of us from ever seeing it!
So exactly what about this park would make it "great?"
Had you actually visited the park and speaking from experience, I might respect what you have to say. Try visiting someplace and then give your opinion. Don't go off of what I say, what another site says, just go visit on your own!
