In December 2001, Fuji-Q opened Dodonpa, the world's second installation of an S&S Power "Thrust Air 2000" coaster. It has this amazing 171-foot hill!
Like Hypersonic XLC, the first "Thurst Air 2000" ride, Dodonpa's trains go up and down at 90 degree angles. This hill is nearly twice as wide as Hypersonic's in order to prolong the negative G-forces.
