Thunder Dolphin and Big-O

dsc00949

I was never a fan of heights, but my younger self was thirsting for adventures, so she threw caution to the wind and rode the THUNDER DOLPHIN-a roller coaster at the Tokyo Dome Amusement Park.

I remember how both scared and excited I was back then. The trail of the roller coaster was something I haven’t seen before. It passes through a hole in the LaQua building and the centerless ferris wheel called the Big-O. The course itself was enough for me to give it a go. I might have gotten a little too excited I forgot to buckle of my seat tight enough that by the time we were at the “dive”, I’ve lost the feel of my own seat as the roller coaster plummeted down. I was shocked, dead scared and had very little time to contemplate what to do with the situation. It felt like I was free-falling.

Luckily (and obviously), I didn’t die. They say that “what cannot kill you will make you a stronger person.” Well, this experience sure did, but still, no more roller coasters for me since then.

The nearest train station from Tokyo Dome is the Suidōbashi Station. The train network in Japan looks like spaghetti of different colors when you look at the map. If you’re a first time traveller, you may use the following Japanese sentence in asking train station staff for direction as you may need to change train from time to time. The train station staff  could also teach you which train could get you to your desired location faster.

水道橋駅にある東京ドームシティに行きたいのですが、どう行けばいいですか。

Suidōbashi  eki ni aru TOKYO DOME CITY ni ikitai no desu ga, dō ikeba ii desu ka.

I would like to go to TOKYO DOME CITY in Suidobashi  station. How should I go there?

You may also remember this pattern in case you are going somewhere else.

「train station」駅にある「place」に行きたいのですが、どう行けばいいですか。

「train station」eki ni aru「place」ni ikitai no desu ga, dō ikeba ii desu ka.
