Besides CP, MM or possibably PKI how many parks could go over the 400ft barrier?

Well it is obvious that some parks have ceilings like IOA, SFKK and SFMW but I'm sure money is an issue also........ Not that many parks have $25 mill to make a record breaker....

All he means is parks that have a height limit above 400 feet.

The only other possibility in the near future would be if the Stratosphere would get permission, which is doubtful.

With the coaster boom over, I doubt we will see any anytime soon, but, I could be wrong!

SFGAm has a restriction of 300 something (height of Sky Trek Tower) so that eliminates one of the biggest SF parks. What about SFGAd?

However, given the current economic situation at many of the parks, I know none of this is likely in the near future.

How about WDW? They have over 43 square miles and control their own airspace!

Six Flags Darien Lake is out in the sticks...

...so for all it matters, they could go as high as 600' and only the cows would give a moo.

I could see PKI doing a giga-coaster in the future, but not a strata-coaster. With Dropzone & the Eiffel Tower there I don't think height would be a problem. They've got plenty of acreage. I also don't think money would be a factor. The only thing I can think of would be their whole thing with catering more to the whole family. Meaning, their obsession with building more family-friendly attractions. Winning the golden ticket "again" for best kids area won't help that dream either.

What about some of the Japanese Parks? I could definitely see Nagashima Spaland or Fuji-Q Highland adding something record-breaking.

I wouldnt be suprised if another SF park did it too, SFGAdv sticks out more then others but I supose that SFGAm could do it too but the neighbors might quash that one.

I dont care what anyone says Magnum is better then MF, which is better then TTD!

I doubt a SF park will be coughing up that kind of dough for a long, long time. Not until their financial situation turns around.

Well actually that depends. On whether SF wants to make that type of investment into one of their parks, while the others sit and wait. That certainly isn't out of the realm of possibilities, especially for known money makers like SFGadv or SFMM. Next year is out of the question, but who knows what will happen after that.

Blackpool pleasure beach in England used to have the worlds tallest. The pepsi big one, and has stated they want the record back (no surprise there) i dont believe they have any height restrictions at all, unlike most british parks, so no problems there.

They are due a new coaster soon, and apparently they have been looking at Intamin rocket coasters and S&S thrust airs.

I think they are due a new coaster......isn't the Big One the last big coaster they put in!

There's tons of parks that potentially could do it. I would venture that half the major parks in this country without height limit issues would be able to find the money to do it, its just a matter of getting the investment back. What parks SHOULD do it would really be the more interesting question, but giving the current climate around coaster building, the economy in general, and having never run an actual amusement park, it would be pretty hard for any of us to speculate.

According to recent comments from Stan Checkets, he says he will be CP in speed and height and I bet he will try atleast.
