Wow. I'm overwhelmed... :b

First off, great job EVERYONE. The captions were great. Eric and Mike: I think yours were my favorites! Special shout out to Eric for taking that pic and, of course, to Robb... BITE ME. (just kidding)

The funny thing is: I don't even remember what that ride was!!

Thanks all for the laughs.

Our last stop before Tokyo Disney was the "Tokyo Teleport" area which has a ton of amusements, shopping and lots of crazy stuff!

One of the best arcades with tons of capsule machines is located here, Sega Joypolis is also across from the station at a huge entertainment complex called "Tokyo Decks."

Also housed in that complex is this update's showcase destination "Muscle Park." Some of you may remember Muscle Park from last year's update, but we made a very quick visit. This year now that we know more about the place we spent some time and all I have to say is that this is a *MUST SEE* if you are into some awesome 'wacky' places to check out and have fun at while in Japan.

Onto some photos....

Image
We head out to "Tokyo Teleport" on a very crowded JR train!

Image
"Why are all the Japanese taller than me?"

Image
Tokyo Teleport is an amazing place. It houses lots of amusement areas, shopping malls, etc, etc...

Image
Today we challenge MUSCLE PARK!!!

Image
Muscle Park is home to the official "Sasuke" course which for those of you may not know, is called "Ninja Warrior" here in the USA!

Image
And yes, for women to compete you gotta chop your nails!

Image
Elissa's "s**t eating grin" on the hand bike!

Image
Mike is the only one of us who was able to defeat the salmon ladder!

Image
Julie shows off some belly on the arm ringy dingy ding-a-ling dings!

Image
Rich! Just pretend they are donuts and you'll make it!

Image
Looks like Joey is going to make the hand bike!

Image
Oooooh! Jew down!

Image
Elissa is almost at the end of the course!

Image
OMG! A shark is eating her off screen!!!

Image
"I might be dead....but I made it!"

Image
"Almost there... just a couple of seconds..."

Image
"Raise your hands....if you're SURE!"

Image
'I am woman! Hear me roar!'

Image
Yes, Elissa is a Ninja Warrior fanboy!

Image
Elissa says "I love you Makato Nagano and Shingo Yamamoto!"

Image
The rest of the park is like Wii Fit on steroids! Watch your balance guys!

Image
Smooth moves!

Image
"Every time you press that button, god kills a kitten."

Image
'With much concentration comes greatness!'

Image
42 kittens...dead!

Image
All the games here were awesome! This one you had to press the buttons in a certain pattern as fast as humanly possible.

Image
"Ranking Park!" Is that anything like the Rankin Bridge?

Image
It's like IAAPA exploded in Japan!

Image
And yes, they even had Ninja Warrior for kids!

Image
More awesome crazy games!

Image
And GUNS! You can't possibly have a muscle park without guns!

Image
I'm not even sure what this is, but it's got two balls and a strange looking guy.

Image
Of course no theme park would be without some kind of eatery.

Image
And if you're going to work out you need to eat! And this "Monster Burger" is no exception! Have a look at that thing! Each stack is a separate entree!

Image
Mmmm...and burger that comes in a box that big has to be awesome!

Image
C'mon guys! Scarf down that Monster Burger! Make Takeru Kobayashi proud of you!

Image
Two wheels of numbers, a wheel of random geometric shapes...I'm so confused...but it's so awesome!

Image
Baseball Tic-Tac-Toe....yup!

Image
They had models of the real Ninja Warrior courses on display.

Image
Fans of the TV show must be drooling right now!

Image
Like many other Japanese parks you have to buy tickets for each of the "attractions" (don't worry, it's not as confusing as it looks!)

Image
This game was awesome! Basically each person (Rich and Elissa here) have a movable piece of track that they have to move while the train is in motion. They move the track piece, pick of a block out of the storage and put the block on the stack. Then they have to move the stack and the track back into place without the stack of blocks falling over. Got it? Let's watch....

Image
Elissa has a small stack of blocks...track is in place...train came through...looking good!

Image
Rich's stack is getting bigger, train is coming around faster now...

Image
Elissa just barely gets the stack in place for the train to safely make it through!

Image
Woah! Rich has a BIG stack! =)

Image
Uh oh....this game is getting close now!

Image
Rich freaks out like a little girl who just got her training wheels off!

Image
SKLOOSH!!!! Oh no Rich just lost to a girl!

Image
Ice Bat does NOT approve of this epic fail!

Image
"Jews don't play sports, man!"

Image
Elissa versus Rich once again! This time, it's a mental challenge....

Image
Elissa: "YES!!! I am smarter than a police officer!!!" =)

Image
Right next door to Muscle Park is Sega Joypolis. Another awesome, crazy, must see attraction at Tokyo Teleport!

Image
Joypolis is a multi-level indoor amusement park with roller coasters, flat rides, video games, virtual reality and all kinds of crazy stuff.

Image
Spin Bullet is one of the most brutally messed up must-ride coasters ever!

Image
"You guys are all about to get raped!"

Image
but forget about Joypolis....GIVE ME THAT MOUNTAIN OF SUSHI!!!!

Image
And of course the most amazing attraction in all of Tokyo Teleport...Condomania!!!!

Thanks for reading! Next up...the grand finale of this update! Lots of Tokyo Disney Resort photos!!!
