Awesome trip to Yokohama Cosmo World. Glad to know that welcome sign is approved.
You folks can enjoy night time much better than daytime, I recommend.
There is a China Town in Yokohama nearby the park, We can enjoy safe Chinese cuisine with TPR members,
especially with that girl!!! I miss her. Ha Ha Ha.

So we've had quite a few crazy days back to back. Here is a quick glimpse at what we've been doing to get you caught up...
image.jpg
We all were challenged by the "fake drop" of Blue Fall at Sea Paradise. May still very well be the best drop ride in the world!

image.jpg
Next up we checked out the new B&M trains on Steel Dragon 2000.

image.jpg
The new trains were pretty cool. Certainly gave you more of a feeling of "speed" than the previous ones.

image.jpg
We also may or may not have been doing something with Travel Channel. I guess you'll find out soon enough! :)

image.jpg
Then we flew to Sapporo in Northern Japan and had a pretty kick ass day at Hokkaido Greenland.

image.jpg
We tested the weight of TPR members versus the conveyor belt lift hill system of the kiddie coaster. Much to our surprise, the conveyor belt won!

image.jpg
Copious amounts of drinking happened this day. After all, we're in Sapporo, home of the beer with the same name!

image.jpg
The following day we rode one of the top two most intense coasters on this trip! The dive loop Ultra Twister at Rusutsu Resort!

image.jpg
The ride is seriously incredible, and it does this to you!

Check out this video of the Dive Loop Ultra Twister...this footage is NOT SPED UP!!!!

image.jpg
It is unlike any other Ultra Twister ever made. Absolutely nuts.

image.jpg
KidTums also rode her first shuttle loop. A bit nervous at first, but she rode it five times and LOVED it. Certainly helps that it's also a really good ride!

image.jpg
Now we are on the train, bound for the airport, heading to Tokyo again for the final leg of our 2013 Japan adventure!

Pure awesome! I know you are super busy, so thank you for posting this. It certainly is great reading when you are trapped in a car waiting for another Florida thunderstorm to pass by.

The dive loop Ultra Twister is definitely one of the top rides on my coaster bucket list. Can't wait to see more!

This looks relatively smooth compared to reviews on Viper!
If Intamin made a donkey, it wouldn't be tame.....well for a year

I guess for some odd reason, TOGOs in Japan seem to be smooth from the reports I have heard in the past few years...
