BGT needs a big B&M standup or something breakthrough that will put Florida on the map. Montu did that until Alpengeist came along and crushed the competition. Now some inverted coaster in Italy called Katun is beating that out! They need to strive to put Florida on the map

I don't think I would consider BGT to be in competition with BGW, let alone something in Europe. The truth is, the public at large doesn't know anything about what is taller/faster/steeper. Try telling people in Florida or Texas that there's a coaster in Ohio that is 200 feet tall, let alone one that's over 300, and they'll look at you like they're crazy.

I agree with Lil "D", BGT does need a floorless or stand-up coaster. If they build one of those they will a variety of coaster types.

I think they should get a hypercoaster since Florida dosn't have one.

A wooden out-and-back would be a very nice addition and something needed in the area.

Actually, if BGT were to put a floorless into the park, I'd be surprised, given Kraken being not too far away. A stand-up or a Hyper-twister (along Raging Bull lines) would be a better fit for BGT. (although if they were to get a coaster of any type after Rhino Rally, I'd be happy)

A Hyper Twister would probably be the best for this park.

I agree we need a hypercoaster down here.Either that or a standup.I doubt they will build a floorless since Kraken is pretty close.And since Gwazi is still fairly new i dont see them building another wooden coaster so soon.Hopefully they will build something big and fast.

BGT needs an out&back airtime filled hyper! I would like a giga but I think Kennywood may be planning to do that for me! Anything with tons of airtime! Better yet A slightly larger version of Shivering Timbers in an L-Shaped layout would be my first choice but a hyper would be find just as long as they get a quality airtime filled coaster since BGT did not want airtime in Gwazi to make it a family coaster!:-(
