Fuji Q Highland: Book Tickets with Discount! Enjoy world’s best roller coasters next to Mt.Fuji!!
Fuji-Q Highland (富士急ハイランド) is one of most popular amusement parks in Japan, located near Fuji Five Lakes at the foot of Mt. Fuji.
The park has approx 40 different fun rides and attractions and some of them holds Guinness World Record, and they keep surprising us with new attractions which opens constantly. Also, as the park is situated at the foot of Mt. Fuji, guests also can enjoy the great view of the mountain from the park.
Although the park has many attractive points, I must say that it is best known for its scary, extreme rides including some record breaking roller coasters. Currently, the park owns four large-scaled roller coasters and some other extreme rides. Each of them has different and unique features, so today, I’d like to introduce 5 craziest rides you can find at Fuji-Q Highland. Let’s take a look 🙂
