HELP

Eejanaika (Japanese: ええじゃないか) is a 4th Dimension roller coaster at Fuji-Q Highland in Fujiyoshida, Yamanashi, Japan. The ride is the world's second 4th Dimension coaster, the first being X (now X2) at Six Flags Magic Mountain in California. It is also the tallest roller coaster to have multiple inversions. Eejanaika was designed by S&S Worldwide. The ride has a design in which the seats can rotate forward or backward 360° in a controlled spin. This is achieved by having four rails on the track: two of these are running rails while the other two are for spin control. The two rails that control the spin of the seats move up and down relative to the track and spin the seats using a rack and pinion gear mechanism. The track only has three inversions, but riders are inverted 14 times.

History

Eejanaika opened on July 19, 2006 with a red track and grey supports. Eejanaika translates to "Come on, it's okay!" in Japanese.

In circa 2015 the ride's track was repainted black.
