Fuji-Q Highland

Fuji-Q Highland is an amusement park located in Yamanashi prefecture, Japan. The theme park is near the base of the famous Mount Fuji.

This is the place for you if you love rides and roller-coasters rather than the attractions of say, Disneyland or Disney Sea.

The highlights of Fuji-Q Highland Amusement Park include:


The world’s steepest steel roller-coaster. Takabisha is 43 meters high and can reach speeds of 100 km/h. Takabisha looks scary even from the ground and is an adrenalin rush for the bravest of daredevils. The ride has amazing views of Mount Fuji, seven twists, dark tunnels and a heart stopping 121 degree free fall.


The longest and tallest roller-coaster at Fuji-Q. It is 79 meters tall and can reach speeds of 130 km/h. It was once the world’s tallest roller-coaster.


The fastest roller coaster at Fuji-Q with speeds of around 172 km/h. It was once the world’s fastest and still ranks the fastest in the world for launch time acceleration.
