  • We got an afternoon free pass, but didn't get any value out of it. Around 15:30 a lot of the rides already stopped accepting people, so all the remaining rides had extremely long waits. Other...  more »
  • This park has some great thrill rides, 4 of them are pretty intense! For the rest, it is very basic. The park doesn't look nice at all. I went July 27th 2020, due to the pandemic the park was working....  more »
  • Very fun rides, many are record breaking. The lines were quite short and the park was easy to navigate  more »
  • You'll get plenty of thrills while admiring the majestic Mount Fuji up close. What's not to like? There are plenty of rides here, catering for everyone of all ages. For thrill seekers, Fuji-Q has 4 rides that will surely satisfy your adrenaline rush. For the not so brave at heart, don't fret, there is plenty of other tame rides to keep everyone happy. Of course the other part of this place is the fantastic view of Mount Fuji from the park. For theme park junkies tourist, this is like a 2 in 1 attraction.
  • I went here with friends a couple of Christmases ago and we had an amazing time. Definitely try to go when it isn't crowded because the limited amount of attractions make it so that you could wait around 2 hours to get on a ride. Great for thrill seekers!
  • Small and compact compared to other parks. Many high thrill rides, but unfortunately the long wait times means that you cannot even half the rides in a single day. Perhaps a working weekday you may have a better chance. The express tickets are a bit expensive as well. It is also strangely hard to navigate through the park as there are many forks and dead ends. The guide map is also a little too simplified for guided navigation, but does have all rides and facilities marked. As for food, there are many choices from burgers, steaks, crepes, junk food and Japanese comfort foods. No shortage of choices here. Would definitely recommend!
  • It's a perfect place for those looking for a little adventure. For JPY 5700 you can enjoy so much. I am personally scared of roller coasters but it is a lot of fun. Please go there as soon as it opens to enjoy it to the fullest. It has roller coasters for all kind of people. They got everyone covered. It is definitely a must visit place.
  • Well, the Fuji-Q is difficult to like. In the end it was very nice there but just because we were lucky that a lot of people left the park early. It is incredibly difficult to even find information about ticket prices (on the website) and such before you enter the park. We lived close by and even went there the day before to have a look at the entrance and the ticket offices. It was confusing! So to make it easier for all of you: there is a day pass that you can buy to access the park and with that you can use all of the rides (they are included). The day pass is around 5700 ¥, I think. You can also just enter for free and pay for each ride individually if you are only interested in some specific rides (rides range from 600 ¥ to 2000 ¥ for the special ones, per ride!). Since Japanese people seem to like to wait in line they don't hesitate to wait even if waiting times for one ride are over 120 minutes (that happens more often than you might think). In that case you can buy a fast pass. But beware!!!! The fast pass is only for one ride and you can only use it once! The fast pass is around 1500 ¥ extra (you can buy it at the ticket machines next to the entrance of every ride) and it's also only valid for an hour (between 10 and 11 and so on, depending on when you want to go). Fast passes can also be sold out at a certain time of the day. Due to the fact that we didn't know what to buy we thought in the beginning that the park is a total rip off. In case it is very crowded you can sometimes only use very few rides until it closes again. However, since the park got less crowded near closing time, we were able to use some rides more often and enjoyed our stay in the end.
