^ Well I did a lot more on my own, including my great trip to Japan, but the Holy Roller Tour was all the parks that I visited with my boyfriend and kids and the Sisters. It was truly a spiritual trip!
Well I just have enough time to get one more update in before taking off for the holidays.
For those of us lucky enough to have traveled to the far land of Japan we probably have ridden one or many of these contraptions. I love Japan simply for the pure quirkiness of all their rides and parks.
Along with Togo, Meisho is one of the major ride producers in Japan and although most of their rides are in the Land of the Rising Sun they did build the Thunderbolt in Australia. Here is the catalog of their rides. From Coasters to flats, Meisho seems to have built them all. Please pay special attention to the sexy "Meisho Girls" with their random pointing and surprised looks.
I love Japan!
This catalog comes from an IAAPA convention I visited sometime in the mid 80's.
these next few coasters are not from this catalog but from an earlier catalog I picked up the year before this one.
now back to the rides
Maybe Magic Mountain can get new trains for their Metro here.
The wheels of Japan
Did you know that there was a Great America in Janan? Here is the Columbia Carousel Japanese style
That's Lightning Coaster at Nasu Highland. I like how Meisho makes lots of huge rides that look like junior hypercoasters. I used to think all there was in the coaster world was Arrow, Vekoma, B&M, Intamin, Mack, etc. but on the other side of the world there was Meisho doing its own thing in Japan (and technically Australia and North http://www.rcdb.com/pd1121.htm and South Korea, and China.
