Great photos so far, and LaQua looks like a really cool place since it's in the middle of Tokyo and the rides are all over the place. I'm surprised with Thunder Dolphin, well was as I found out it wasn't great from your 04 trip, but it does have a really cool location. I don't know much about Sea Paradise, but I assume it is like Sea World California so it seems to be a nice park.

On the negative side though, she got so used to being outdoors constantly this summer on all of the trips that now she won't stay inside at all! We have to take her out at least 3 times a day or she gets more and more miserable!
Good for trips, bad for the rest of the year!
My daughter is similar. She is now 17 and 1/2 months old. She loves the sounds and sights of coaster trains going by, and she also hates being trapped inside. Living in New York City, it is now Winter, so we have quite a bit of inside time. =( Travel is difficult when it is really cold.
Hopefully the next time you guys are on the East Coast, we can join you on your GrAdv outing.
I wish GrAdv would get a Blue Sex Fall! They need a drop tower so badly!
FLIPDUDE wrote:And what is the fake drop on Blue Fall?
The fake drop is shown in Robb's Seaparadise video. It is when the ride releases you to drop, but some brakes at the top catch you, hold you for a second or so, then you drop the rest of the way down. If I'm not right, please correct me.
We ended our day at "Cosmoworld" a little park build right in the middle of Yokohama city. Personally, I think that Comoworld might actually be the most awesome setting for a park anywhere in the world! It rivals Ocean Park in that category!
The park was a little different from the last time we were there in 2004. There is a little park on the other side of the water that last time just had a couple of kiddie rides and flats. It appears that since then, Cosmoworld has purchased this little park and made it park of the Cosmoworld complex. They've expanded it with a few more flats, a new kiddie credit, some shops and a bigger arcade.
It was really cool that they've expanded and it gave you a reason to go check out the other side!
Anyway, onto some photos....
Upon entering the area you can see Cosmoworld is dwarfed by all the huge buildings around it.
The Yokohama Landmark Tower is the tallest building in Japan and it's right next to Cosmoworld!
That's just sexy.
Anyway, we'll get back to sexy photos later...more important stuff has to happen first! Like...we ARRIVE!!! Yay!
My Melody complete with "little hat" is happy to be here.
OMG!!1 EXCLUSIVE BEHIND THE SCENES PHOTOS OF THE MY MELODY PHOTO SHOOT!!!!
Yes..you are seeing that correctly. It's the "get as many balls as you can into the Cup-O-Noodles when it opens it's lid" game.
We won a present for Jahan! (And no, it's not a giant potato..it's a giant PEANUT!!!!)
"Hey Jahan...mind if I stroke your giant peanut?"
Bob looks impressed "God Damn Jahan...that really IS a giant peanut!!!"
The gets darker and the city looks awesomer.
How would you like to have this guys job?
There he is adjusting the lights or something!
I don't know for sure how big this Ferris wheel is, but it's got to be one of the bigger ones in Japan.
"Have fun on the log flume with AIRTIME!!!"
"Hi Dan...how's it going?"
We spent WAAAAY too much time in their awesome arcade!
Hot Fuzz Rich sure knows how to handle his piece! (Lou is VERY impressed!)
Diving Coaster:Vanish is all lit up at night!
This is why it's called "Diving Coaster!"
Is it just me or is there something strangely perverted about it?
You're a large train thrust into a large hole that gets wet. Hmm....
Ok, fine...maybe there is something a little perverted about it! =)
And speaking of perverted I'm not even sure I want to know what's going on here!
"Armadillo Racing Game"... you know... because Armadillo racing is freaking COOL!
Wow, and I thought Hot Fuzz Rich looked all bad A$$ with a gun!
We wandered over to the other side...see, it's part of Cosmoworld now!
Time for a little bit of credit whoring!
Yes, it's called the "Family Banana Coaster." Have fun guys!
They had one of those places that makes your nipples hard.
We played more games in the arcade.
Elissa got to reach into the mystery box of death! Please let it be razor blades!!!
We love our TPR credit whores! =)
It was time to head out. Say our final goodbye to one of the most awesome looking parks ever!
Special thanks to Ryan, Falefel, Bob, Mark, Tom, Jeff, Dan, Chuck, and Lou for submitting photos!
