I went to Sea Paradise in 2000. Surf coaster is actually pretty good (you can never have too many helixes). Sadly it was (and is) my only Japanese coaster riding experience. Nice TR of course

^ It's a standard observation tower.

Sea Paradise is a really nice little park, then only thing I think is odd with the place is that they get so many million visitors every year (it's in the top 10 of numbers of visitors in the world, if I remember correctly).

Next stop was Yokohama Cosmoworld which I still feel is one of the "prettiest" parks in the world. There is no denying this place has an AWESOME setting! Especially at night. Have a look....

Image
Today it was KidTums turn to get us to our next park! She's got the directions, she's ready to lead us!

Image
Wait! She wants us to do morning calisthenics before we hit up the next park???

Image
"STEP ON THE BUG!!! STEP ON THE BIG BUG!!!! Before it gets to the children...."

Image
See Comoworld during the day is nice...

Image
...and the setting right in the middle of the city is fantastic...

Image
...but it's at night when this park REALLY comes alive!

Image
The park is located on both sides of the bay. The Ferris wheel and "Diving Coaster" is located on one side...

Image
...and there are some flat rides and the kiddie coaster are located on the other. It's a short walk between the two.

Image
Enough pretty lights talk...let's ride a roller coaster!

Image
Yes, Diving Coaster is pink...very pink...

Image
You guys all ready for the pink diving coaster?

Image
"Dive! Dive! Take her down easy!"

Image
And there they go! Pink and diving!

Image
Even the trains have glowey lights!

Image
Diving coaster is ICE BAT APPROVED!

Image
I'm not even sure what this is, but damn it looks awesome!

Image
Why do we keep bringing these maniacs on our trips with us? (Except Lauren...she's cool.)

Image
Seriously though, while Diving Coaster isn't the greatest coaster in the world, the park really is amazing!

Image
Everywhere you look everything glows!

Image
This place must have been a lighting designers wet dream!

Image
And in addition to the awesome lights, Cosmoworld is also home to some REALLY wacky dark rides! You guys ready?

Image
This one they almost didn't want us to ride because it's all in Japanese and they were afraid we wouldn't understand the story...

Image
Who needs to speak Japanese to understand "BOOBS!!!!"

Image
This dark ride is "Dolphin Safe"

Image
There is even something for our gay contingent to look at!

Image
But most importantly...BOOBS!!!!

Image
"So you guys ready to go on the ride with boobs and half naked dudes while holding a phallic object?"

Image
CAPTION CONTEST!!!! EMAIL DAN YOUR CAPTION!!! mrt0ad13@aol.com
The first 10 people to have their caption posted will get a TPR Bag-O-Crap! Be sure to email him your mailing address too!

Image
Why are these dudes in every Japanese shooting dark ride?

Image
Even KidTums got to play this one!

Image
Cosmoworld is also one of the homes to the original "Meat Animals" and especially "Meat Cow."

Image
No, Dave is not dead. Although he looks dead. He is actually overwhelmed with joy and happiness that he has found Meat Cow. You just can't tell because joy and happiness in Dave looks the same as death.

Image
These "Meat Animals" tell you what meat parts are included. There is Meat Cow, Meat Pig, Meat Fish, Meat Chicken, Mean Human (yes, that's right), and now the brand new Meat Holstein which is a descendant of Meat Cow.

Image
Ok time to head over to the other side of the park! Get your jet packs ready to FLY!!! (Yes, they have Jet Packs in Japan because they are so advanced.)

Image
The other side of the park looks just as awesome!

Image
Lots of lights and dizzy stuff.

Image
You guys ready for your "Family Banana Coaster" credit? (I don't make up the names of these rides I swear!!!)

Image
Yay! Banana credit!

Image
See! Even the Banana Coaster has more theming that most US parks!

Image
And what does every TPR member do after a day of coasters? That's right! Close one eye and stick your tongue out!

Thanks for reading!!! One of the most bizarre parks EVER is up next!

--Robb

Delicious & Refreshing

My caption has been sent! Hope you enjoy it Dan!

Anyways, this has been another great update Robb! It looks like you guys had a great time in Japan this year! I've really enjoyed reading this thread and look forward to the next updates--the Japan-A-Mania 2 DVD helps to add to the ancitipation, which is a sign of good things!

Image
The ghost of Togo past haunts Yokohama with a vengeance. The locals tell a little rhyme about her:

Beware the curse of Togo Train,
She had no inverts,
Only pain.

And if you see her at the parks,
Run the hell out before she barks.

I eat 10,000 rancid testicles for breakfast.
