I was pointing out the most important location in all of FujiQ...the kiosk to purchase the skip the line tickets! ;)

Luckily the park staff was amazing and escorted Robb back before opening to purchase every one we needed for the whole day.

I've gone pantless!

Great report! Yeah those skip-the-line passes played a major role in us having a good day. It was a very important location on the map indeed.

Great reports! Been keeping up with them to remind me of what a great time the trip was. Honestly, a swell day at this park. Far exceeded my expectations. Lines were manageable with the fast passes, found Auntie Anne's, had a great lunch at Meat Meet, and enjoyed the Soarin' knockoff quite a bit (especially the pre-show). Looking forward to your Disney Pictures!

Comparing the stories and expectations of years past to what we've seen in the last year or so, it definitely seems like things have gotten way better from the "Dodonpa is literally the only reason to visit" years. Hearing Fuji-Q going the extra step for customer service while having Universal turn it into a logistical nightmare would have sounded like something out of the Twilight Zone before all this.

Nice! Most of the time I've heard Fuji Q has some amazing rides but can be...er...challenging to visit. Glad you had a good time!

:omg:

This is shocking to read. Happily surprising, actually. For Fuji-Q.

Or jinxed it, LOL.

This would be great for future TPR visits,and especially Robb and Elissa, if the staff and owners have finally gotten it,
that TPR has been bringing groups to their park for....how many years, now?

Here's to several more years of the same service, upon return visits. :airtime: :airtimer:

Great TR! Definitely the most literary TR I've read on here, and I loved every minute of it! It's also nice to see someone have a good time at this park. I've been wanting to go here for some time but I've really only heard negative things about it. Hopefully things will continue to improve by the time I actually make it out to Japan.
