Robb already posted a front-seat on-ride video, but how about one from the back car? A Japanese YouTube user posted this video a few days ago.

That looks insane, as I've said. The back car really whips over that drop in true RMC style. I only wish it were a bit easier to get out to Japan.

BAYSIDE STATION!!!

I am just finishing up a two week trip to Japan and visited Nagashima Spa Land yesterday. I was able to ride Hakugei three times during my visit. It’s a great coaster and a fantastic addition to the park. But I went in expecting too much and I guess I am a little disappointed. It’s possible it was the temperature or the wind, because it was very windy and sadly Steel Dragon 2000 never opened, and the high was around 60. I want to ride it again on a hot summer day sometime but I know it’s likely to be a few years. But for me both Steel Vengence and Lightning Rod are still better.

Also every time I visit Japanese parks I realize just how poorly the US parks handle loose items. Hakugei has free fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo under the station half way up the stairs. Leave your items in a fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo right before you reach the station and get them back right after you get off the ride.

^I don't think ANYONE expected this coaster to be better than Steel Vengeance and Lightning Rod! If you're putting it right under those two, that's still a pretty amazing coaster and it's sad to be disappointed by it.

Also, yes, sigh...why do we make it so difficult with loose items here!?!?!

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

Totally not disappointed in the coaster, it’s a fantastic ride, I just built it up to much in my head. I had assumed I was going to miss it and kept hoping for the best and looking at construction photos and then was surprised when the opening announcement occurred and I knew I should be able to ride it. Then with it being the end of my trip I was really looking forward to it for two weeks. I wrote that on my flight home and I think I did a really poor job explaining myself. The coaster is fantastic, I just put it on a pedestal it could live live up to before riding.

In comparison the coaster that totally blew me away was Back Daaan at Tokyo Dome City actually, I went in having not done any research, no videos, pictures, etc had zero idea what to expect, and I was surprised by how good it was. Hakuegi is a much better coaster but you can totally do too much research.
