Beyond Vertical Drop Coaster Confirmed!

Bon Bon land.

the only park wild enough to have a coaster named the "Dog Fart", have just released info about a Stengal designed roller coaster, that features a 95 degree drop. I'm not sure how accurate this info is, but check it out anyways...

The name is apparently Euro Figter (weird IMO) and it will stand 72 feet tall, and be 1404 feet long. it is also being built by a company called Gerstlauer, who has quite a few 2003 projects. heres an RCDB link to it...

BonBon Land!

Is this the place that was in ACE News a while back with the garbage dump and sea gull rides?

Why yes, Chris, it is. You can even enjoy the Pirate Show with Captain Puke at BonBon Land.

This place looks absolutely amazing!

Edit - Answered my own question. :-p

Speaking of steep drops, would the new S&S squirrel ride be considered a 135 degree drop (even if it's just a millisecond)?

Wouldn't the squirrel be a 180-degree drop?

I've known about this for over a year! If you go back a couple pages, you can find a thread called "Gerstlaur Coasters" or something like that. Anyway, the ride's called Tsunami, it's 82 feet high, 2100 feet long, and 8 single car trains. The incline of the lift hill is 90 degreeeeees, and the drop is 95. They were having a contest about a year ago about the name, and I sent in "The Mind Boggler", except it didn't make it. Anyway, if you pick up a copy of Amusement Today, you can find it in there.
