Theme parks here want to make a quick buck because they implement that their fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo are the ONLY way to store your loose articles w/o getting ejected from the park. :x

Actually from what I understand the revenue from the fluffy, fluffy bunnies filled with medicine and goo often goes to the fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo company, not the parks. The policies are in place because they don’t want any possible inkling of liability if someone gets hit by a loose article.

I am thinking of going to Japan over Christmas time, I have done some googling but haven't found much information on nagashima spa land in winter . Does anyone know if the roller-coasters are open throughout winter? I have been to nagashima before so the main ride that I will want to get on is Hakugei.

Seriously, my new favorite coaster shirt. I just love how simple it is.

Hakugei is insane. Like the best elements of all prior RMCs put into one perfect coaster

The outward banked wave turn just after the drop was my favorite element. Followed closely by the stall

And this sucker is GORGEOUS at night. In particular the interior structure

Got 8 rides on it today and could have done a few more
The thing flies once warmed up (and it ran pretty fast in the morning anyways)

If you get a chance to go? Note that it runs in the rain. And was extra special nuts. The ride today with TPR in the pouring rain is top two of the best coaster rides I’ve ever gotten

Highly recommended

Glad to hear Hakugai is awesome!

And that shirt looks more like a Vineyard Vines t-shirt more than a theme park shirt.

Loved this ride. It’s got all the RMC elements without trying to kill you. Very good pace that isn’t all insane airtime and inversions.

The pre-lift section on this coaster is SO good! In the front you get little pops of air and the drop out of the station in the backseat gives airtime, too.

We rode first thing in the morning before park opening and it was already running soooo fast! What I enjoyed the most about this coaster were the inversions. I'm not a fan of slow barrel rolls and the one here is nice and whippy in every seat of the train. The zero g is taken at a perfect speed and really lets you get a nice weightless feeling while still being hugged comfortably in the train throughout. Hakugei serves up a variety of airtime which lets you experience the best of what RMC has to offer:
-A stunning steep first drop
-Double up
-Sideways airtime
-Double down
-Upside down airtime
-Sustained ejector
-Quick hits of ejector

There are even a few moments of laterals. Our ride in the rain had me keeping my eyes shut the whole time and that was certainly an experience. Surprise after surprise of unpredictable airtime, twists, and flips. If you ever get to visit Nagashima Spa land, I hope you get to ride in the rain because it's too much fun!

The B&M trains on Steel Dragon were so nice. I really wish Cedar Point would make this work on Magnum. I know they could come up with a cool design resembling the old trains. Steel Dragon had a great set of airtime on the return trip and the first two hills surprised me with how much they had; even in the front seat. It's the longest coaster in the world and it really feels like it thanks to the unrelenting speed sustained throughout the course.

Arashi was my first S&S free spin and man they really are wild. It was a fun experience but not something I had a desire to do more than once...which is exactly how I thought I'd feel, haha.

FreeFall was supposed to be closed during our visit but opened up. I love those 1st gen Intamin drop rides. There's something uniquely terrifying about the car transferring over to the drop track and having nothing but a steel grate to look down at.

Arcobat was a huge winner in my book and now I need to go ride Manta. Slow barrel rolls on flyers are my least favorite coaster element and I was so happy with the pace the inversions were taken on this ride. There was some airtime, too!

^ Arashi is amazing. On the other hand, it's awesomeness sort of ruins the ones back here that only spin 2-3 times.

I agree that I'd love to see the Steel Dragon trains on Magnum. The world needs more B&M clamshell restraints.

Hakugai sounds incredible.
