^Well it just so happens I was working on an update. I hope you, Ice Bat and Mr Bitey enjoy.
Only four more parks to cover on this journey. Again we woke up to an overcast day, but the weather did not call for much rain and the rain did hold off all day. So we took the subway out the Cosmoworld. The park is split on two sides of an inlet leading to the sea and parts of the parks are very picturesque, especially the Vanish Coaster and the Big Wheel. But don't expect any picturesque photos from me.
The coasters weren't great but the log flume was. Also the park had a rare Huss Sky Lab (the stretch limousine of Enterprises) and lots of dark rides and walk through attractions. I didn't really enjoy my day at the park until I started to explore those dark rides/walk thrus.
After ERT filming sessions on all the coasters, Robb and Elissa provided each of us with a ride card loaded with enough yen for me to ride everything I wanted and go back for a couple of repeats.
One side of the park is built on a few levels and in this picture I am climbing up to the levels where the Vanish Coaster, Mouse and Big Wheel entrances are located.
In case you were wondering how the Vanish Coaster got its name.
Senyo Mouse Porn! The ride ops allowed us to load for maximum spinning. YAY!
The Fat Boat on the Log Flume.
This picture captures Colin in a non-blinding shirt, although his hair will still blind you. More importantly on the left of the photo you can see the levels of the building housing multiple indoor attractions.
This is the shooting dark ride vehicle. If you score high enough a score you win a prize. Since Elissa had been here before, she was smart enough to ride alone so she could have the choice targets to herself and won a prize.
These are the instructions for Mirror Adventure. As you can clearly see, you go through a mirror maze and have to find your Zodiac sign. If successful you are assigned multiple symbols that appear on a wheel. Upon completion of the maze, the wheel is spun and if it stops on your symbol you win a prize. At one time 10 or 11 people won in a row until Bryan played.
This is the sign for the Ghost Train.
You ride in this cage and spooky stuff pops out at you. Not quite the same as snorting coke in a cage at Octoberfest.
The fourth indoor ride in the area was Judge. It was a walk through with scare actors. You had to find buttons to press in each room to complete the maze and be judged. Scare actors jumped out to hinder your progress.
This area of the park also had a popcorn machine. Elves not included.
Sticking with the indoor attractions, on the other side of the park was Dr. Edgrado's. A walk thru where you are given a "candle" that is meant to be held as steady as possible, not shaken at the props.
After Robb wasted 400 Yen on Cosmic Panic he convinced many of us that was worthy of a try. IT WASN'T!
Adventure Maze had even more confusing directions than the Mirror Maze, and the ride op couldn't even explain what to do, so I skipped it.
Even though it was blazing hot, I skipped the Polar House, since there was an air conditioned mall across the street from the park.
Super Planet was my favorite flat ride in the park.
Absolute beauty of a ride.
Everybody from TPR was taking a picture of this building, so I followed suit like a lemming.
The park's Disk-O with one of those rare Japanese Big Wheels in the background.
Galaxy is the park's version of the Swing Around.
Nice double decker carousel in the family/kids area of the park.
Luckily this sign has an Engrish (yes I spelled it like that on purpose) translation because I thought it meant not to jump into an empty pool.

As usual, my analysis is free of charge! Original enough to not steal someone else's quote as a signature
