Fuji-Q Highland (富士急ハイランド Fujikyū Hairando?) is an amusement park in Fujiyoshida, Yamanashi, Japan.
The theme park is near the base of Mount Fuji. It has a number of roller coasters, as well as two haunted attractions: The Haunted Hospital, the world's second largest haunted attraction,and the newly built Hopeless Fortress.
Other attractions include Thomas Land, a children's area with a Thomas the Tank Engine theme and attractions themed to Gundam and Evangelion.
In 2006, on the 9th Season of The Amazing Race, the final 3 teams came here and rode Tondemina, Dodonpa and Fujiyama looking for a clue to their next destination.
Fuji-Q's most famous roller coasters are the following:
Fujiyama, 79 metres tall, 130 km/h, opened in 1996 and was once the world's tallest roller coaster. As of 2007 it is the world's 8th tallest, 5th longest, and 10th fastest roller coaster.
Dodonpa, 52 metres tall, 172 km/h,opened in 2001 and was once the world's fastest roller coaster. As of 2013 it is the 4th fastest in the world but still has the highest acceleration at launch time.
Eejanaika, 76 metres tall, 126 km/h,opened in 2006 and is only the second "4th Dimension roller coaster" ever built (the first being X² at Six Flags Magic Mountain in California). As a "4th dimension" roller coaster its seats can rotate 360 degrees forward or backwar,d in a controlled spin, thus allowing Eejanaika to invert 14 different times, even though the actual track inverts only three times. It surpasses the first built "4th dimension" roller coaster, X², in both height and speed.
Takabisha, opened on 16 July 2011, contains a 121° freefall, as well as seven major twists over 1000 metres of track, and a drop of 43 metres.
