We know tha SFI is have very bad fanacial problems. I hope this doesn't lat more than say 2 years. I'd like to see the rumored hypers for SFOG, SFNO, SFWOA and SFStL get built by 2006-2007 at the latest. 2004 is out of the question and 2005 I have heard looks doubtful. I hope we don't have to wait another 5-6 years before even ONE of those park gets a hyper especially SFOG of SFStL which I think are the best two SF parks that are still lacking a S:ROS@SFNE clone! Yes that would be ONE coaster I would LOVE to see cloned and anyone who'd complain about that one being clone is an idiot!!! But I think an improved version of that ride with a Stengel Dive would even be better!!! A SF park with a long seaon needs an airtime hyper like that and the only hypers in long seasons SF parks are the two Geovanola hypers that hve only one of two airtime spots. I was VERY disappointed when I've heard that SFMM & SFOT did NOT choose to build a S:ROS type hyper! But most of the rumors I've seen for those other parks indicated either an Intamin hyper of a B&M hyper. I they go the B&M route I hope they try to make a first drop that is sharp and steep enough to work even in the fron seat like on the Intamin coaster. In fact if a B&M hyper had a first drop of that quality with an out & back layour full of airtime hills with zero airtimeless hills it would be very possibly to make it better than S:ROS @SFNE since I like the roomy (for me) B&M Speedcoaster. Even with the lapbar down to less than one inch of space the B&M feels much more roomier because of legroom and you still get that floating feeling even when you are snug. To me those trains do not destract from the ride experience. I sure hope that I don't have to wait another 6-7 years for SFI like VF does when it come to adding major coasters. Before I know it I will be an old man and not have much life left to enjoy these coasters that I wish for. Well there is hope if Titan Thrills can get their proposed Phoenic park off the ground.

I've heard that SFWoA was supposed to get their hyper in 2004, even going as far as do soil testing but due to SFI's troubles, it has been postponed - again.
Hopefully 2004 will be a turnaround for the company and coasters will return in 2005.

I'd really imagine that it would be pretty difficult to clone SFNE's RoS. There is pretty extensive terrain differentiations, plus the site itself is a very unique shape. I think it would be hard to make it work.
