The Cosmo World Wet Roller Coaster

Diving Coaster Vanish!
2 trains with 6 cars per train. Riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 24 riders per train.
Dives through an underwater tunnel.
A unique, visually impressive coaster with some fairly big drops and an intense helix. The name of the coaster refers to the fact that this coaster "dives" and "vanishes" into an underwater tunnel, accompanied by a large spray of water.

The Cosmo World is an interesting little park built in a harbor that is the best option, by far, to escape once you are bored of riding the fast elevators of the local hotels. The freshly renovated Cosmo World is a high-tech urban three-dimensional amusement park which was planned, built and is now operated by Senyo so as to create the concept of busy streets. The venue was inaugurated after its renewal on March 18, 1999.

Covering a plot area of about 20,000 sq. meters, the place to look for the Cosmo World is 11 Shinminato-cho, Naka-ku in Yokohama City. The park remains closed every Monday under the manager, Saburo Yamada. The names of a few of the rides include: Wonder Amuse Zone, Burano Street Zone, and the Kids' Carnival Zone. There are 27 attractions, 5 eating facilities and one distribution facility here. The Legend of the Salamander is a laser battle game that anybody can enjoy. Salamander, the ruler of the dark, helps you destroy evil forces with a laser gun installed in the ride.

This is an amusement park with a Ferris wheel that has captivated the public, as one of the largest Ferris wheels in the world, with a capacity of 480 passengers, and a height of 112.5 meters. Here, you can also go for a Roller Coaster ride or a Long Flume ride.

The Iran-Contra Cargo Plane - Restaurant and Bar

What's the future for a cargo plane after it was shot down?

Well, it can start a bar and restaurant business. Not bad. Don't take it as a joke. Fairchild C-123 relates its name with one of the biggest scandals in the mid 1980's. That involved the Reagan Administration's bizarre of network for arms sales to Iran. This very cargo plane was shot down on October 5, 1986, while delivering supplies to the Nicaraguan Contras.

However, now it's known as El Avion Restaurant and bar. Ready to serve you serve you food and drinks at cost little more than usual ones. Pack your bags with lots of currency and enjoy meals under the wings, built around a 1954 Model. The most charming feature other than the menu and plane itself is the scenic beauty around seacoast blended with mild reddishness at evening sunset. I think other planes should seek inspiration from this unique one among them after their retirement.
