As we all know, for a coaster to be classified as a hyper, it has to be a complete circuit, and be 200+ ft. Here is my question...

On RCDB, it says that AC is 170ft tall, with a 210ft drop. does that still classify as a hyper even though its not 200ft tall?? or does some kind of trench make the drop longer, thus classifying it as a hyper??

here is the link to where i found this info:

This comes up all of the time. The bottom line is that it doesn't matter, it's all marketing anyway. Call it whatever you want.
