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. 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. Eejanaika translates to "Ain't it great!" in Japanese.
