Clementon's Tsunami...steepest drop in USA?

According to this promo...

Tsunami will have the steepest drop for a wooden coaster in all of North America. Sounds pretty amazing. What's the steepest as of now? I'm guessing CI Cyclone.

If I remember there were a few CCI's that were around the 60 mark. I wouldn't be surprised if that's a legit record.

No. There is no CCI that exceeds 55° in drop slope.

URC also claims that Legend's speed is 68 mph...go figure...

I find it hard to believe the park is going to make the May 28th opening. The last construction update I saw [last week?] the ride supports from the station to the to of the lift were complete but nothing else had been done.

But I hope they make it!

mOOSH

Last I heard (which was earlier today), it is going to be June 7th.

Steepest drop? Sounds like a Dells-style claim to me.

Wooh! American Eagle is on there! Probably one of the only awards given to it, but I think it's a fun ride...

Anyways, it may be possible that this claim is true, but we'll have to wait and see.
