FUJIYAMA jet coaster holds three Guinness Book records: maximum height, maximum drop, and maximum speed. The jet coaster’s 80 second ride is an adventure from start to finish. During the day, the ride has an uninterrupted view of Mount Fuji, while at night, riders encounter a variety of light set against the nocturnal background. Five light events add to the excitement of embarking on the ride at night and to unique thrill it offers. This “active lighting” is integrated with the coaster’s beautifully illuminated railing, further heightening the crowd appeal of the Fuji-Q Highland symbol.
