What is that document that was posted in the news section trying to say. Another thing is, is the standup and flying dutchman officially confirmed?
What is life without geniuses?

They wouldn't be submitting it for approval if they weren't going to build it, would they?

The thing is, the stand-up was proposed in a "blanket plan" submitted to PG county last year. This plan proposed a 140ft Stand up, a 200 ft (outdoor) coaster, a 200 ft indoor
coaster and other general improvements.
The 200ft outdoor coaster became our S:ROS. The site that was planned for the stand-up coaster is now being used for the "2001 (flying) Coaster". Also, good money says that the indoor coaster will not use the whole 200ft, but since 200ft is the height limit, they just wanted to give themselves "wiggle room".
The "blanket plan" was given approval last year. However, there was the stipulation that each individual attraction would have to be re-presented with the finer details. That is what is happening now. They are presenting the fine details of the FD for approval. (note: they did the same thing for superman earlier this year).
As I read it, the plans for the stand-up coaster have been scrapped to introduce the Dutchman.

Will they ever add a Stand-up, I hope they will.
