Are you searching for an amusement park near Tokyo but you are not interested in Disney Land? You want to try some attractions extreme? If so, I recommend you visiting FujiQ Highland, which is located in Yamanashi prefecture. It takes only an hour and a half by bus from Shinjuku Station to FujiQ Highland or you may rent a car and drive along the way to Yamanashi. If you have confidence about driving a car in Japan, a left-hand drive country, I recommend driving a car since there are other tour destinations such as Kawaguchiko in Yamanashi.

I am going to give you an example about how to get to FujiQ highland from Shinjuku station. However, you can also take a bus from some famous tour spots such as Shibuya, Ikebukuro, and Akihabara. If you are traveling from Shinjuku station and planning to buy a free pass, which enables you to take all attractions in FujiQ highland, it costs JPY 7,000. This price includes a bus ticket fee for round trip between Shinjuku and FujiQ Highland and free pass.
It takes 1 hour and 40 minutes and the bus operated from 6:05 a.m. in the morning so you can arrive at FujiQ HighLand before they open. You can take attractions unlimited times with free pass; however, you need to pay additional fees and buy tickets to try some attractions such as haunted house. If you visit the website of FujiQ HighLand, you can also find a package of renting a car for 24 hours and free pass. You may choose your preferred option.

If you want to feel what real ‘extreme’ is, try eejanaika. Eejanaika means ‘Ain’t it great?!’ in English. First, the staff will ask you to take off your shoes and glasses. If you have something on your pocket, you must put all items in the prepared cabinet or you will lose all and hurt somebody. Each seat rotates forward and back 360 degrees and throughout the ride, the riders experience 14 inversions. In fact, it was on the Guiness Book of World Records as a rollaer coaster with the most inversions in the world with The Smiler at Alton Towers.
In addition to this, this roller coaster doesn’t allow you to see the front since the seats are designed to be seeing backside. The fear of not knowing how high it is going to go up gives thrills to riders and once it starts rotating, you may not be able to think about anything. However, taking eejanaika during winter time can be very cold and usually we need to wait more than 2 hours to take few minutes ride.

Do-dodonpa, which was named as dodonpa before renovation, boasts super high speed. Riders can expereince 180 kilometers per hour with 1.56 seconds. It is very difficult to catch a moment when do-dodonpa is passing by due to its crazy high speed. Total riding time is only 55 seconds and its maximum heing is 49 meters. Once you board the ride, the train will move to the launch pad. At this time you may think it is nothing because it doesn’t move so fast.
Then riders are given three seconds and train is launched at acceleration. Some people describe this as a experience of dividing your soul and body. 8 people can take one train so you can take it with your friends or family. There was a big renovation of do-dodonpa(formerly dodonpa) in 2016. In 2017, Dodonpa was reopened with new name do-dodonpa. In the past it was 172 kilometers per hour in 1.8 seconds; however, it became 180 kilometers per hour in 1.56 seconds. Length has been also increased.

Takabisha is comparatively new roller coaster in FujiQ Highland since it was built in 2011. It is the world’s steepest roller coaster which boasts a drop 90° down but dangles at the edge for a moment before dropping down 121° inwards. It simply means, you see nothing in front of you other than air. Takabisha also gained the Guinness World Record for the steepest roller coaster made from steel. It is common for people to wait more than 2 hours to take this short ride roller coaster.

In general, roller coaster finishes very quickly. However, Fujiyama boasts a long ride. The total length of course reaches more than 2 kilometers and for the height it’s 79 meters. Fujiyama is usually called as ‘King of Coaster’ and it is said that more than 22 million passengers tried this as of 2017. It simply shows the popularity of Fujiyama. Compare to other roller coasters in FujiQ Highland, Fujiyama is not very extreme; however, you should not neglect the fact that FujiQ Highland features mainly ‘screaming attractions’.
