That has to be some kind of error... The construction gif shows something entirely different and it's abnormal for a park to have an slc and a b&m inverted, unless they plan on getting rid of top gun...
Very true, although the silhouette of the completed coaster (from the split second I saw) seemed very different from any hyper I've seen. Unless it was different coasters meshed together-which I doubt. From that last image of the gif it looked like it would have 2 hills after the first drop, followed by the mid-break, a downward helix into a banked turn and a low to the ground carousel turn back into a return leg of a few bunny hops and into the final break-run. That is, if it's right. *** Edited 8/23/2007 7:33:33 PM UTC by fearandloathing***
When you change your date to the 27th and 175' comes up, all the little bars on the side aren't full. So it could still be 200'+. Just interesting to note, since I'd assume they'll actually change the flash when they announce it.
Honestly, I hope this isnt the most thrilling coaster going up this off season, seeing how we had Goliath at SFOG and Expedition Everest going up in offseason 05 and Maverick, Wicked, Furious Baco, Renegade, and probably more I am forgetting in offseason 06 at least those were my first two off seasons as an ethusiast, but I am sure it will shape up when the dive, and Prefab wooden ones go up in china.

^That has little to do with the designer itself and all of what the parks order. It's not like if this were an Intamin coaster it would be more likely to be over 200 feet tall based purely on that in and of itself.
There are many good possible reasons to say "This coaster will probably not be over 200ft tall" but "Because it's a B&M" isn't really one of them.
I mean by the same token you could say "This coaster is likely to be over 200ft. tall because B&M has often gone over 200ft. in the past." *** Edited 8/24/2007 2:37:43 AM UTC by matt.***
