A few here and theres from me, on the tour...

It's been hot and humid, most of the time, but we're all coping with it okay. We certainly got to appreciate bottled waters and assorted other beverages, ice cream and soft-serve, and any place that had air conditioning, even in shops and places we weren't planning to buy anything in, lol.

Splash Bandit at Yomuiriland was AWESOME! And that set me up for several future great flume rides, and big-drop chutes. Yes!

Dark rides in alot of the smaller parks have been cheesy, indescribable, annoyingly cute, or just plain WTF. Take your pick or make up a combo, it all works, lol.

Robb, Elissa and Dan have been busting their collective butts to make sure we`ve been getting the best out of the tour, no matter what happens (i.e The Typhoon) that may change or alter our touring plans/schedule.

Thanks guys - truly amazing and incredibly wonderful of you to take this on. Not to mention the awesome enormity of herding us all around and through the countryside and citysides of Japan.

They have Zorb at Kajima--and it`s pretty trippy.

I was so hoping to a picture of someone failing at the monkey bars.
Last time it happened, it was one of the funniest videos I downloaded.
To bad they were closed.

Anyway, great update. :b

I hope this park's obstacle course update is going to be a segment on the DVD. It would be funny to have commentary on it and make it like an episode of MXC.

Great update Robb.

Ive been to that park. There is an aquarium right near the station, and after going, I saw the coaster and had to just check the park out. It was seriously ghetto, but the park was nice. Unfortunately, four days before I went, they had had an accident at Mitsui Greenland that closed all the roller coaster in thee country for about a week for "inspections", so I wasn't able to even hop on the coaster. Regardless, it was kind of spooky walking through a park like that and not seeing any other people at all around, it was more deserted than even the other empty parks of Japan.

These are all awesome updates Robb. I wish I had the cash to go to Japan.
