Eejanaika

Fuji-Q High Land
Yamanashi, Japan

Brace Yourself: The name translates roughly to “hey, what the hell,” which is what you will hear others shouting in Japanese when you’re on this ride. Only the second “4-D” coaster in the world (X2 is the other), this has the same 360-degree turns and insane style of head-over-heels spinning on the winglike cars as X2. But there are plenty of differences; for one, this track is a little longer and the ride is far taller—at 250 feet, it’s the seventh-highest roller coaster in the world. And from the top, riders have a spectacular, if brief, view of nearby Mount Fuji.


If You Chicken Out: You may need to suck it up here, because there are two other thrill-ride title holders at this park: Fujiyama, the world's eighth tallest, fifth longest, and tenth fastest roller coaster; and Dodonpa, the third fastest coaster in the world, which tops out at 107 mph.
