Next update! Space World!
We made base camp in Fukuoka for a few days and each of our mornings started out with Mister Donut (as Mister Donut demonstrates)
Dan found the "excellent room." He went inside and said it was excellent. Bet you didn't see that one coming!
Mmmm.....Mister Donut!!!
Rich made some friends on the train. At least until he showed them his police badge, then they all got up and left!
I think this may be our stop.
TPR Group Photo!!!
Our day at Space World started out with a filming/ERT session on Venus.
Everyone is singing Bananarama.
This is what ERT should be like!
Venus is a pretty kick ass ride. It *looks* very "Schwarzkopf" but it was actually made by Maurer Söhne .
Do the "Venus Enjoyment Pose!"
Next up was ERT on Zaturn, the new Intamin rocket coaster (well, new for last year that is....)
The ride looks like Stealth at Thorpe Park, but for some reason it was MUCH better. The launch seemed faster and there was more airtime over both hills. Weird.
The view of the park from Zaturn.
For all you Cedar Point fanboys, this might look familiar.
Yay! for the coaster that looks like Magnum, but it's ANYTHING like it at all!
Titan's first drop or coaster porn for Jahan.
I'm not exactly sure what THAT is, but our bodies are about to be subjected to it! Wish us luck!!!
KidTums is also having a good time at Space World.
Elissa won a big banana! Yeah.
She also won "inflatble angel wings!!!" Japan is so awesome!
Robb stole the inflatable pink angel wings and the park's wacky bee mascot had wing envy.
Today's "Frozen Coke for Jahan" was "green flavor" also known as Fanta Melon....yeah....Melon.
We all had a really good day at Space World. Everyone else? They were all making love on the Ferris's just what you do in Japan!
Back on the trains we were on our way to Uminonakamichi Seaside Park...but we'll save that for another update!

Great update. Space world seems to have some very nice coasters.

From the photo's, I guess the park crowds were extremely light ? Except for the TPR group, the 2 japanese on Titan and the park mascottes, I didn't notice anybody else on the pics.

Another nice update. The park looks nice and I am sure you had a blast. But I need to ask the same, where are the crowds? Looks like the park was nearly empty.

That's where the ERT came from. Space World, Uminonakamichi, Tobu Zoo, Parque Espana, Hirakata, and most other parks are almost empty all the time.

Soren, you're forgetting about the cloaking devices.

Another great update, there's just something about Robb in pink angel wings that makes me giggle like a schoolgirl.
-My butt has touched 112 roller coasters, how unfortunate.

Weird. Venus is now Green and Blue, Titan is Yellow and Black. That is something that will take time to get used to.

Just want to stop in here and say that today we rode the most screwed up dark ride in the history of the universe at Parque Espania. There is video, but even that will not be able to truly display the awesomeness of Circus Musical.

This trip has kicked much ass so far, and there is a lot still to go.

Always trying to keep YOU entertained! Now with more Ice Bat!
