Remember to take into account inflation and the general cost increase of materials and possibly labour. The sum that bought Eejanaika may not stretch nearly as far these days.
It's still gonna get something bigger than Orion tho lol, because Orion cost Kings Island 30 milRemember to take into account inflation and the general cost increase of materials and possibly labour. The sum that bought Eejanaika may not stretch nearly as far these days.
You do actually make a good point with the earthquakes, but I do look at Takabisha and it doesn't seem to have that much more steel, so who knows tbh. We are definitely looking at a big big coaster next year and I can not wait!!Not necessarily. The cost of materials and labour may still be higher in Japan. Also remember that it has to be earthquake-proofed, which makes things more expensive.
Fuji-Q Highland recently made the news for asking roller coaster riders to “scream inside your heart”. Now, the amusement park is set to add two ‘windswept cages’ to its Shining Flower Ferris wheel.
Shining Flower is a Ferris wheel that towers 50 metres above Fuji-Q. Two of the 32 gondolas will serve as the ride’s temporary cages, which are made from stainless steel.
Fuji-Q said “prisoners will be punished for about 11 minutes in a windswept cage, enjoying the thrill of seeing the ground far below through the gaps and enduring the ridicule of the surroundings”.
“The seats are side by side for two so that you can regret your sins toward the magnificent Mount Fuji that spreads out in front of you and change your mind as much as possible before you are released,” Fuji-Q added.
“You can use it as a place to reflect on and rehabilitate past bad deeds. You can use it as a punishment game with your friends. Fuji-Q Highland is waiting for you who want to be punished.”
Not at all! I'm pretty sure that was a joke hinting at the rather bad operations Fuji-Q is kind of known for.That’s a fair shout; do Maurer Spike Dragsters have high throughput? I’d imagine Fuji-Q were probably looking for a family ride that shifts queues well, so I’d be surprised if it doesn’t!
