Yes, A “Watery” Roller Coaster!

Oh, how I love all things Japan. Here is the latest example: a water park that includes a “hot springs roller coaster!”

As the intrepid Reporters at RocketNews24 report:

“The city of Beppu, located in Oita Prefecture on Japan’s southern island of Kyushu, uploaded to YouTube a video of people enjoying a day at an amusement park. Two things, though, made the proceedings very different from a day at Tokyo Disneyland or Universal Studios Japan.”

“Beppu is one of Japan’s premiere hot spring (or onsen, in Japanese) resorts. Because of that, every park-goer in the video was dressed in a towel, and the rides and attractions were filled with hot spring water.”

Yes, a roller coaster filled with water! Of course, you don’t have to take my word for it.

Check out the promotional video:

RocketNews24 as always has the best stories from all over Asia, and they have the entire story, with information on how you can be part of the crowdfunding, in their story here:

Of course, I have shared great RocketNews24 stories before, like the Taiwanese Politician who wanted a unique funeral:

RocketNews24 is also the best source for all things culinary in Japan as well, like this mega-burger tower:
