Fuji-Q is also pretty famous througout Japan. Alot of my friends in the Kansai region knew about the park. There's also a bus service from Osaka to the park, which is an 8 hour drive one way, so people come from far to go to the park. Not to mention it's relatively close to Tokyo (and does feature unique coasters).

I planned to go to Fuji-Q, but in the end didn't do it cause I didn't want to make the 8 hour trek and risk the chance of the coasters being closed.

Am curious.

Has anybody been to the park recently, and seen (i.e taken photos)
any of the coaster's construction progress?

Been awhile, so I thought I would ask.

Decided to do a quick hunt for this.... Well I almost choked when I saw these.... Not exactly what I expected but holy crap...
What in the world do they call that thing on the right?

Oh and they have added another high Capacity ride... A Star Flyer called Bancho
The website below details that with some of the worst theme park music ever

Looks like a cobra roll and a top hat mated...
And that stretched out loop looks pretty big as well.

YES. I've always wanted to see one of these built - it's an idea that's been in my head for years. I always thought it would happen on an Xcar first, but this looks so fantastic! And look at that loop - how tall is this thing supposed to be? Because that loop's huge!

EDIT: Just realized this is a launched Eurofighter, and it sounds like it's a launch into a top hat with a beyond-vertical drop. This is gonna be goood.
