Trip Report: Fuji-Q Amusement Park
I heeded the advice of other travelers and planned my visit on a cold, clear weekday while school was in session, and I got to the park before it opened. I wasn't on the first coaster of the day but I was pretty close. The park wasn't busy but the ride lines move very slowly, and tackling as much as possible early is very important. Despite the fairly empty park, lines were about an hour long or worse most of the day, and on a busy day don't count on riding much. But the coasters are enjoyable and coaster enthusiasts flock to this place for the experience. There are plenty of other parks in Japan for people interested in riding a lot of rides and not waiting an insane amount of time, though. Oh, and take advantage of the bus service from Shinjuku with the free pass ticket included, as it's about the same price as a round-trip train ticket!
