Japan Family Trip : Day 4 (Fuji-Q Highland)

Assalamualaikum everyone. :)
Today I am going to tell you about the day I spent in Fuji-Q Highland.
To be honest, if someone asked me,
"What do you remember the most about being in Japan?"
I would easily answered without even thinking for a second.
"Fuji-Q Highland~~~!!"
Even my family members said the same thing.
For your information, Fuji-Q Highland / Fujikyu Highland is a highland amusement park.
macam Genting Highland in Malaysia. cuma dia World Class punya.
maksud saya world class dekat sini is that the rides there are at a world class level.
like in the amusement park itself ada about six roller coasters.
and all these roller coasters termasuk dalam Guinness World Records.

" Fuji-Q Highland (富士急ハイランド) is an amusement park in Fujiyoshida, Yamanashi, Japan.
The theme park is near the base of Mount Fuji. It has a number of roller coasters, as well as The Haunted Hospital, the world's second largest haunted attraction, and Thomas Land, a children's area with a Thomas the Tank Engine theme. "

11th February 2012
Day 4 in Japan :


I am very lucky that after I went back to Malaysia, I got to know that
Big Bang, a South Korean Boy Band actually went there on the 3rd of April 2012.


You can see Taeyang free pass to Fuji-Q Highland, here.
and there were other pictures too. the pictures in the link were taken near the Haunted Hospital.
Haha, I went to Fuji-Q Highland first before Big Bang did.
How awesome is that right??

Let me tell you beforehand, this entry will be very long.
but please stay, it's really worth it I'll tell you. :)

Firstly, I want to tell you about the roller coasters that my siblings and I rode there.

1st : King of Coasters "Fujiyama" 


 FUJIYAMA, the "KING OF COASTERS" which boasts world-class specs,
including a maximum speed of 130 km/h (81 mph), a maximum drop of 70 m (230 ft.),
and a maximum height of 79 m (259 ft.).


2nd : Takabisha  


Takabisha is a Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter steel roller coaster.
 It is currently the steepest coaster in the world with having a drop angle of 121°.
It has the height of 43 m (141 ft) , length of 1,000 m (3,300 ft) , and speed of 100 km/h (62 mph).


3rd : Dodonpa


 Dodonpa can go up to 172 km/h (111 mph) in a mere 1.8 sec. after launch!
Imagine if you sitting in a stationary condition (not moving,or keeping still),
then suddenly you are moving with the acceleration of  0 to 172 km/h (0 to 107 mph) in 1.8 seconds.
From a still 0 km/h immediately to 172 km/h.
crazy right? that was what I was feeling. :)
with that kind of acceleration, the ride just took about a minute to complete for the length of 1.189m.
It was thrilling! ^-^


4th : Eejanaika


Eejanaika (ええじゃないか) is a steel 4th Dimension roller coaster.
The ride is the world's second 4th Dimension coaster.
You can enjoy unprecedented thrills and a feeling of liberation as you experience three different kinds of spins, "the spinning of your seat forward and backward," "loops and flip-flops through the air," and "spinning with twists in it," while you race down the track!
As an added bonus, you'll hang there with your legs dangling,
so you won't be able to plant your feet anywhere to steady yourself.
This will send a strange sense of being hurtled through the air coursing through your body.
 Eejanaika had the height of 249.33 ft (76.00 m) and the length of 3,782.83 ft (1,153.01 m).
The speed reach about 78.3 mph (126.0 km/h) and has 3 track inversion (14 including seat inversions).


My sister and my brother-in-law rode Eejanaika. I didn't.
it was because I was too nauseous at that time.
to be honest, after I rode the Dodonpa, i puke at the toilet. rasa mual yang teramat sangat.
jadi takut nak naik eejanaika. takut termuntah pula kat atas itu nanti. haha

Oh ya, did you watch all the videos?
If you did, isn't it just awesome?!
but if you didn't ,please do. best tau. ;)
by the way, if you can see in the video..
there's gonna be one time where there is a big statue of a camera during these roller coasters ride.
do you see it? 
if you don't try watching it again, there is.
In Fuji-Q Highland, they captured photos of you while you rode the ride.
and it cost like 500 Yen for a picture.
the pictures were so funny! semua hodoh gila dalam gambar itu.
We do have the pictures. but no need to show it here la.
hihi, segan mah~
So there they are, the roller coasters that my family and I managed to ride.
We have to queue a long line, for about one hour for each of the roller coasters
because there were too many people.
So we didn't actually able to ride the whole Fuji-Q Highlands ride.
but still it was ok. it was really awesome!!
i felt really lucky to have gotten the chance to go there.

The pictures below were taken there by my first sister and my younger brother.
Credit to them for taking these awesome pictures. :)
