Move over Super Nintendo World, Tokyo Disneyland, Universal Studios—Japan's "scariest" theme park has a new attraction. Fuji-Q Highland in Yamanashi Prefecture is home to record-breaking, terrifying and jaw-dropping rollercoasters. But it's also known for giving you the best views of Mount Fuji from its rollercoasters as part of the mountain is located in Yamanashi.
Fuji-Q Highland set to open an observation sky deck atop the new Fujiyama Tower that provides a barrier-free skywalk and unbeatable panoramic view of Mount Fuji. Opening on July 23, the observation deck stands at 55 metres and built directly beside the Fujiyama rollercoaster (dubbed "King of Coasters"), which was the tallest rollercoaster in the world when it opened in 1968. It also previously had the largest drop in the world at 70 metres.
To give you the best viewing experience, the tower is also opening the Fujiyama Walk, as part of Fujiyama's 25th anniversary. It will allow thrill-seekers to walk mid-air in a winding track with nothing but a harness to keep you tied to the tower. A tube-type slide called Fujiyama Slider—which will allow you to slide down from the observation floor at once—is set to open at a later date.
