Tower sure does look impressive, I have only recently encountered MGM's Tower and was completely wowed by it. Just could not get enough, all that airtime with just a seatbelt!

Another great update Robb, I really hope to get to Japan one day.

Awesome update. And Joey's right, as cool as that video is, seeing it in person is WAY better. The theming and pre-show of this version of ToT is just amazing. If they could combine this with the FL ride, they would have the greatest attraction ever. Even so, it's still really cool.

And that sea salt ice cream was really tasty. Looking forward to more pics...

Tokyo Disney Sea was totally the best park of the trip and their version off Tower was amazing. Photos and video don't do either justice. Harrison Hightower is the coolest evil white guy ever. One of my favorite things were the pictures in the hotel lobby they showed Hightower stealing all the great treasures of the world. In every one he was being chased by angry natives and in one case wolves.

Check out http://www.tot1899.com/english/ for the answers to all your questions about Harrison Hightower. Warning it will spoil the ride!!!!

I can hardly wait the next Disney update :mickey:

The lobby paintings were hilarious--many of them involved Hightower posing heroically with his latest acquisition, while his assistant fought off angry natives.

Great photos as always. Been waiting for the TDR photos. As with Tower, I've been on all of the operational ones and this one ranks at #2, with MGMs being #1 and DCA at #3. The theming and effects are amazing but the drop sequence just doesn't cut it.

Can't wait to see you guys again for the Tokyo 2008 trip.

Wow the theming on the tower is amazing! Nice to see some photos, I haven't actually ever look at any before. Weird thing was I was looking at one of the first photos thinking 'is that a model?' before I saw the caption, glad I'm not the only one! Thanks for the update, it all looks fantastic.

I want to visit Japan so bad. I really hope to go someday, especially so I can see those cool ToT effects myself! Oh, and get me some of that popcorn. Don't they have flavors like, strawberry and apple?
