Great update Ryan! I remember our trip to the mall where Yin bought this facial thing! CRAZY!

Favorite element on SkyRush is the Stengel Dive!

The next park we went to was Mitsui Greenland. Home to a few decent TOGOs and other random rides. The park was not busy so we were able to ride plenty. If you ride Ultra Twister 10X, you get to put your name on a stick and it goes up in the station. Laura and I rode it 17x so we got a stick and a photo up in the station. Its a cool system to get riders to re-ride. I was excited to get to ride an Ultra Twister again since I had one here in Houston for many years. The first drop still kicks butt and so do the brakes. The Milky Way was a lot of fun as well. I think I enjoyed the stand up side more. The park also has a ice house, haunted house and shooting dark ride. Its like a Japan rule for the parks to have some variation of these attractions but that's not a bad thing.

image.jpg
We are here!

image.jpg
The park was very empty on our visit.

image.jpg
Best coaster entrance? I think so

image.jpg
The jet coaster was actually fun.

image.jpg
Plus, it has a train where a Dino drives it.

image.jpg
Chair lift over chain link fence. Sure why not.

image.jpg
MegaTON - Ultra Twister

image.jpg
Its to bad we don't still have one left in America.

image.jpg
We rode it 10x in a row to get our stick. Such a fun system for re-rides.

image.jpg
We had no idea what to write. I wish I would of thought of something more clever. Oh well, still cool that we will be up in the station for a while.

image.jpg
Take the I out and you got NO as in " NO its an SLC"

image.jpg
Milky Way was a surprise for me.

image.jpg
I really liked the stand up side better.

image.jpg
Which side do you prefer?

image.jpg
Themed entrance to Sphinx.

image.jpg
Hey I know them.

image.jpg
Because I'm so immature.

image.jpg
Random loop in the middle of the park.

image.jpg
Its going to be cold inisde.

image.jpg
It was a little humid outside so it was great to cool off.

image.jpg
Iceberg straight ahead.

image.jpg
An indoor power coaster that was decent.

image.jpg
One of the many random attractions. I couldn't tell you what we were supposed to be doing.

image.jpg
I did win at the end and got this card. No clue what its from.

image.jpg
A shooting dark ride but its just one large room in a circle.

image.jpg
A haunted dark ride that I remember having headphones to wear to hear the story.

image.jpg
This haunted house gives you a candle where it keeps track of each time you tip the candle. At the end of the house, it totals your score to see if your insane or not. I think Laura was insane and I was normal.

image.jpg
Its pretty cool that the park has a McDonalds.

image.jpg
Of course we had to get our grub on.

image.jpg
A look at the menu in case your interested. I love that you can order a burger then pick nuggets instead of fries.

image.jpg
The park also had a petting zoo for dogs, cats and hamsters.

image.jpg
Aww.

image.jpg
Laura showing off her trampoline skills. Seriously, Mitsui Greenland was a lot of fun.

image.jpg
We ended our night at a Pizza place nearby the hotel. It was delicious.

image.jpg
Thanks for reading. Next update is a day full of 3 different parks.

I did not see it but it's possible we somehow missed it. I know we missed the bobsleds in the back of the park. We meant to go ride but I forgot about it until we were already leaving.

Mitsui Greenland was my favorite "traditional" Japanese amusement park back in 2007. That dark ride with the headphones was actually kind of creepy.
