Enjoy these roller coaster rides while you’re in lockdown

Sarap nitong panoorin sa 55-inch or bigger smart TV!

Definitely and still not for the weakest heart. Like augmented reality/virtual reality, the experience will, at least, fill up your expectations when you go riding roller coasters in the actual scenario but of course, less downtime and faster. No need to fall in line, pare!

I’ve been in some wildest roller coaster rides in the past and my memorable ones were at Ocean Park and Disneyland, both in Hong Kong. I’ve also tried the AR/VR roller coaster of Samsung during one of its VR launches here in the country. I had the same feelings, whether IRL or AR/VR. Parehong nakaka-kaba and exciting.

Now in Japan, they promised to make these experience live again during these times of pandemic, even while we’re at home because of COVID-19. No AR/VR goggles needed.

All you need to do is sit back, relax, and watch these thrilling adventure adrenaline rush rides in the comfort of your living room (or bedroom)!

I recommend you put your eyes on it on a full screen 55″ or bigger smart TV for the best, scariest, and fun ride experiences. Or just open the full view of these videos para kahit anong screen ka pa manonood eh ma-feel mo and get immersed with wild rides na ganito.

Ang best part? IT’S FREE, PARE!

Here goes! Sit tight and lock that buckle!

Thunder Dolphin at Tokyo Dome City

The adorably-named Thunder Dolphin is not for the faint of heart. The steel roller coaster starts with an 80-degree incline, where you’ll be rewarded with a gorgeous view of Tokyo, before the roller coaster reaches speeds of 130kmph, whipping through Tokyo Dome’s famous Big O.


Roller Coaster at Hanayashiki 

Located in Asakusa, Hanayashiki is Tokyo’s oldest amusement park, dating back to 1853. It is also home to Tokyo’s oldest roller coaster, which opened in 1953. The aptly named Roller Coaster might not be the most thrilling ride as it only reaches speeds up to 42kmph. But, if you crank up the sound, you’ll notice some scary creaking noises coming from the nearly 70-year-old coaster. 


Bandit at Yomiuriland 

Bandit, Yomiuriland’s classic roller coaster, is surprisingly long – the three-minute ride will whip you through the forests of western Tokyo, reaching speeds of 110kmph.


Surf Coaster Leviathan at Hakkeijima Sea Paradise 

Yokohama’s Surf Coaster Leviathan (at Hakkeijima Sea Paradise) is Japan’s only roller coaster that travels over the ocean. The four-minute long ride is incredibly thrilling – you’ll dip and drop and twist on a 90-degree helix, all above the sea water.
