Airtimes Location Duration
This is a stunning Coaster, located in a stunning location. This coaster is insane. Apart from my 38 rides, I believe that this is China's best Coaster, and Asia's best Wood Coaster.This is an airtime, intensity, and Lateral Packed ride, it lasts ages, despite the un-arguable roughness, this just adds to the relentlessness to this coaster. The station is kinda bland, but this coaster has no theme, and I don't really care - it's located at the most Beautiful park in Asia. The coaster Starts with a right turn into a large lift hill, that if you look back, you see a jaw-dropping view. At the top, you enter at 270' helix -like wildfire- shows the breathtaking view._Not Finished_

Lightning Rod Is my number 1 coaster in the world, no debate. They airtime is just insane throughout. The ride is themed to a 1950's hot rod, which I love, and the entire area that it's located in gives a beautiful Vista of the ride yeeting passengers up the mountain. The ride is located at the front of Dollywood, so it gets big lines right away, which is annoying due to it's tendency to go down. Despite this, I have over 40 rides. The first day I was at Dollywood (my number 1 park) Lightning Rod was down the entire day. I got on everything else that day, but I wanted to make sure it was open for at least 1 or the 3 days I was there. Well the following 2 days were dead, and Lightning Rod was Fully operational into the night, and, I lost my mind. I got 30 rides in a row that second day I was at Dollywood, I was in pain due to this ride's relentlessness and intensity. The queue is Also nicely themed, the best theming in the park if you ask me. The ride starts with an utterly amazing... Right hand turn. But after that, you engage with the LSM Launch and are sent flying up the mountain, with a great acceleration. The crest over the top is limited, due to the trims, but the main drop is utterly isnae in the front, and a world shattering experience in the back, due to the speed.You enter a outstanding 90' wave turn, which rockets you with some great ejector, side ways airtime. You then plummet down to the ground, and then rise up into an extremely whippy outer banked 90' wave turn, which twists your body with insane force. You fall back to the ground, hugging the terrain, and go into an off axis hill, providing great sustained air! You enter an outstanding double up into the Legendary... QUAD DOWN!!! The best moment on any coaster is this nuts airtime sequence. You continuously fall, not just going downward, it feels like the ride it trying to murder you into the air, but because of the -admittedly Bulky- lap bars, your body is thrown like a corpse down the mountain, into a G Force packed non-inverting 'half loop' which the exit off gives some great air. You smash into the breaks at top speed, wondering what the fuck Alan was smoking when he made this, and where you get some!
Masterpiece Intensity Layout Theming
This is my number 1 steel coaster for quite a few reasons. For starters, Fuji Q Highland is one of the best parks in the world, as my number 5 overall. This coaster, along with Fujiyama, Takabisha, and Do Do Donpa dominate the surrounding area. I have ridden this thing 7 times over my 2 days at Fuji Q, and I wish to head back. Eejanika alone was the reason I stayed the second day, I got 5 rides in the second day. This coaster just being around is intimidating, the areas around it is quite nicely themed compared to the rest of the parks atmosphere, but the queue itself is absolutely dreadful, and the waits this ride can get, it is a bit of a slog, I went on a relatively Dead day, and still the single rider line was minimum 30 minutes, but can I quickly say, this is worth a 3 hour wait. After you take your shoes off and complete the charming 'Eejainika, Eejainika!!' Chant, you roll upside-down during the 180' turn out of the station, you proceed to flip but and make your way up the 250ft lift. After you crest the lift, you enter a pre-drop - which is fricked up not knowing where you're going. You enter the Appositely insane backward 90' drop, pulling out at an insane G Force. You enter an oddly shaped raven turn, back-flipping throughout, getting some mad airtime. Then you dive into a strong valley, into the most insane moment of the ride... The Zero-G-Roll. The insanity of this element is too nuts for me to even comprehend, you do an insanely whippy Roll, which would be nuts anyway due to the winged seating, while flipping, so you invert twice and get the most insane airtime on the ride! After that amazing - 5 star element, you enter a crazy overbank, like millenium force's first one, but 10X more insane, and you get a great view of the park and the surrounding Scenery. You dive into a Fly to Lie, with crazy whip and airtime, then ride up into the insane outside-raven Turn, which has to be the most forceful part of the ride, I greyed out every time! Then you enter another Fly to Lie, as you enter the break run face first, feeling like you're painting the cat-walks red. When you get off, it's fair to say, atleast I was, blurting out every swearword I knew in utter awe of the ride you just experienced. it may be short, but the lack of rattle and insane -Well- Just FORCE of the ride, is enough to make this the best Steel Coaster on earth.
