200 ft. Loops Possible?

Thursday, August 2, 2001 9:59 PM
Has anyone ever thought about 200 ft. loops? Now that giga-coasters are out, it seems like 200 ft. loops could be possible.

They would be sweet! 200 feet in the air and upside down! I think they'd be possible. Would have awesome G's! Giga's might not be the only that would have them. I'm sure an Air Thrust could manage one as well.

8 feet higher and a 6.5 feet longer drop, could never contest with a 80 degree, non-braking giga-coaster... Sorry, Steel Dragon 2000

well like there inverted coasters that almost hit 200 ft tall so if all the inversions are made bigger then I don't see why they couldn't do it.

There's no reason I can think of why it couldn't be done. It would probably require a bit of space for supports, let alone the sheer size of the inversion, but yeah, it could probably be done.

I'm already drooling at the thought of a loop over 200 feet. Just looking at the ground while you're upside down at 200 feet. yum.

That would be weird. It would take like 30 seconds to be done with it (pending on speed)

That's inverted so that will bust the record for tallest inverted coaster. Is there even a hyper-invert exsisting anywhere else?

The only other hyper-inverted that might count is Alpengeist...

I'm afraid this gets my lowest rating ever. Seven thumbs up.

Viper at SFMM, 145ft

Viper's loop is just the highest loop, not the largest or biggest.

Viper holds the record for the "tallest vertical loop" or inversion, or both, whatever. The Largest diameter loop would be from a B&M (of course) but i'm not sure which one, I'm guessing towards Superman: Krypton Coaster, it's approximately 130 feet in diameter, can't remember right, i'll check later. (which means never) ;)

B&M's Superman: Krypton Coaster has a HUGE loop...it was the largest in the world when it opened, but some other coaster defeated it.
