This is where the Alvey's rock on the trips. We got in the park before the public and got to take a few rides on White Cyclone and Steel Dragon.
I really liked Steel Dragon. Nice air on those little hills coming back into the station. It was nice to see it finally open again.
The park is Ok but the next time I would like to go to their water park. It looked like it would be more fun then the amusement park rides.
This was mostly a credit run. The kiddie coaster was powered so no credit. But it did have plenty of leg room.
The Jet coaster was ... just a jet coaster with far less leg room then the kiddie coaster. Credit!
The Slope Shooter was very interesting. I'm not sure that this one counts as a credit.
The funny thing about the whole day is I took very few pictures.
Once again we start out on a train but had to take a taxi to the park.
I think the guy likes Barry
See the people waiting to get in the park, Ha, we are already in!
Welcome to Nagashima Spaland
Nice to not see a fence in the way
We are so close and first in line
Yes, it is running today!
Nice pops of air time here
Why is Jeff so excited? He missed the left side of the mouse the last time he was here.
Bobkarts! Like you couldn't tell from the sign.
They are a lot of fun
As long as the person in front of you doesn't go to slow
This kiddie coaster wasn't to crowded or nobody wanted to ride with Ryan.
We thought about taking this to get to Nagoya Zoo but opted for the taxi and trains
Nagoya Zoo and Slope Shooter, they push you over to the lift hill
Coaster or not?
Smile Chuck. They grab onto you car when you come into the station to brake you
After 23 straight days of work it is back to the updates.
Today was another 2 park day as we head back towards Tokyo. Lagunasia and Hamanako Pal Pal. Both parks were small, not very crowded and a lot of fun. I would definitly go back to both.
Lagunasia had a waterpark built in the middle of it. Which was empty this time of year. The log flume was a water ride. I got pretty wet. Not Dan approved. They had a shooting dark ride that at the end the car would rotate one way or the other depending on how good your score was. The first time I was bad and saw the scarey scene and the second time did better and saw the happy scene.
At Hamanako Pal Pal it looked like it was going to rain but it held off and we got all our credits. The place had the best flat ride on the trip. We spent a lot of time riding trying to get an inversion out of it. Most of us were successful.
Once again the day starts in a crowded train station
With the water park in the center
also home of Magical Powder and
Meat Cow meet meet Sushi Fish
Part indoor and out door coaster
Jeff the loner
On to Hamanako Pal Pal and Mega Coaster
Good view of Mega Coaster and the Batflyer
The bat flyer had no bats
Ok Rich, you can put your hands down now
Jeff either liked the ride or was glad he lived through it
Today we rearranged our itinerary. We were supposed to go to Fuji-Q but bad weather was forecast for the next couple of days. Knowing that rain would shut the rides down at Fuji-Q we opted to go to Disney Through the bad weather. The gamble paid off. It did rain for the first couple of days at Disney but most of the rides are indoors and it doesn't shut the park down. The weather was good at Fuji-Q four days later and the coasters were all open.
Another train to start the day, ok. monorail with funny windows
and funny looking ringy dingy ding-a-ling dings to hold onto
If you thought it might be Disneyland today, Nope it's DisneySea today
Todays crowd to whore the kiddie coaster
This is the line for Tower of Terror ... for the FastPass tickets
This is looking back along the line. You can see the Tower way back there.
It was only a 30 minute wait. I'm sure the fastpass line was at least that long.
Some cute kid we ran into that day
Indoor kids area, very cool. Try the Seasalt Icecream here
I should have taken a picture of my watch. It was 17:20. Your Fastpass would be good in 40 minutes or you could wait the Stanby line which was 40 minutes. You decide.

What exactly did it do? Id there a generic name for it? Im a flat ride fan.
Don't remember who made the ride. Others on the trip knew, I just don't remember. The ride is like an Enterprise. The seating is side by side. When the wheel rotates the cars swing out and will lock in place. The wheel will tilt and then the cars will unlock causing them to swing. If your one of the lucky ones the car will do a complete 360. I could only get mine to do it once but others couldn't get it to do it at all and still others got three 360's out of it.
Tokyo Disneyland Is an awesome park. Even the first couple of days in the rain didn’t stop anyone from having a good time. They do a super job operating the park with crowds or rain or both. We happened to catch the opening of the park for Halloween. The park was all decorated nicely and they let adults dress up too. They would come as their favorite Disney Character. Sometimes it was hard to tell which a was a cast member and which was a guest.
The Japanese love their parades. It seems like one was going on every couple of hours. People would start lining up for them that early too. It was nuts because they would occur 3 or 4 times that day. People could join in on the parades but they have so many people wanting to be in them they pick by lottery
Full size castle. The park is huge. See the pimpkin.
Here is looking back from the steps of the castle
All decked out for Halloween
And there working trolly
Line to get a fastPass for Space Mountain
Starting coaster pics ... 1
You can actually see part of DisneySea from Disneyland
Autopia wa pretty lame. They had signs that you were not to bump the car in front of you. Only problem was the cars had sensors and when you got to close you would stop. Not as good as the park where Lou rear ended me. :)
Speaking of Lou ...
The night parade with Mickey
and Chip and Dale
Hotel they are building right outside the enterance
Never enough castle pics
So ends another day
Lou doing her best Japanese impression on the way back to the hotel
Read Robb’s review of this park. I agree with about 95% of it. This was my second visit to this park and the lines were terrible again.. It was about an hour wait for Fujiyama another hour for Dodonpa and over 3 hours for Eejanaika. Lots of concrete and no themeing. Not A park I would want to go back to. The one part I disagree with Robb on is Eejanaika. I actually liked it and would have liked to ride it again. But not with a 3 hour wait. That made the ride not worth it. I did find it better the X at Magic Mountain. I did not find Dodonpa’s launch to be to extreme. It was just a waste to get so much speed and not do anything with it. It just kind of meanders around and over the top hat and that’s it.
Blue Fall, best drop tower I have ever been on. I don’t care much for the false drop side. I prefer the straight drop. You get a great view from the top. I think I like drop towers because it is one of the few things that still scare me to ride. Surf Coaster is a fun ride with it’s 900 degree helix of death. The Japanese seem to love helixes, they are on a lot of rides.
This is a cool park at night with all the lights. The coasters are just so so but it is a fun place. It has really expanded a lot since the last time I was there. They have put a little money to improving the part that was on the other side of the canal. A nice place to spend an evening.
Fujiyama, the only picture I have of the coaster
Eejanaika, not much of a crowd ...
Oh %&$#@. Well Dave is easy to spot so is Gus but can you find Barry?
I like this better then X
What is an update with out a really cute kid
Chuck is more excited about the chips then the coasters
Zola 7 cars. Only Geo Panic is worse
Low caoacity mouse
The line looked like it should have been no more then 15 minutes and it was 45!
If it is a kiddie coaster then where is Jeff?
I see him now
I wonder if the Japanese really know what these signs say
onr for the mechanical geeks
Mt Fuji. Picture could have been better if I would have waited for a Coaster
BlueFall at Sea Paradise
I took this picture of the band practicing and didn't notice Bill and Mike in the picture until I started posting this update.
A crowd at the sealife show
BlueFall is really high
Cosmoworld, like you couldn't read the sign
That says Bannana Coaster
It is made for kids

So ends another day with the Three Wise men or the Three Stooges, you make the call
