Do you think drops will ever be 400+?

Saturday, May 4, 2002 8:50 PM
I was just wondering because I think it should be happening some time down the road either at Six Flags Magic Mountain or Cedar Point.

The Heide Park giga/tera whatever, has been canceled. Instead the design is going to a park somewhere in USA. Confirmed by Werner Stengel himself.

You lucky bastards ;)

Olov,

Do you have a link to an article or anything that says this? I'd like to see a little proof.....not that I'm doubting you though.

Olov its NOT been cancelled. Its been pospned due to problems getting the right permits and clearences (Where as SF would just build it anyway like at Six Flags Meixco, Heide appear to have more sence lol)

I spoke to someone at Stengal the otherday and heres what he said about the American Terra Project when i asked.

"Well, we do not know anything about a new Roller Coaster for SF Belgium (until now!).
And the coaster for USA I can't say anything about it. Sorry "

Well he dosent deny knolage of its existance like the SFB Hyper (purposly asked because i know stengal arnt designing that one) so i guess it exists but he won't say anything about it. and come on guys why would CP or SFMM get it??? both after gettign the worlds tallest coasters (at the time) in the last 2 years!

Well, lets see what confirmed record brakers I know of for 2003....
World's tallest and fastest coaster-Heide Park(2003 Intiman Terra coaster)

World's tallest inverted roller coaster-Terra Mitca(2003 Custom Hyper SLC)

World's tallest Hammerhead Stall-Särkäniemi Park(2003 Intiman Hammerhead Stall)

Russia's tallest and first new woodie-new seaside park in Southern Russia (2003 PAX out and back wooden roller coaster)

Tallest, fastest, and longest coaster in the Northwest-The Great Northwest Park(2003 Intiman hyper coaster)

Tallest, fastest, and longest coaster in Mexico-Six Flags Mexico(2002-03' Chance/Morgan hyper coaster)

I am lead to believe that the new coaster from Intiman is going to the new Great Northwest Park in Tacoma, Washington. The park is scheduled to open on July 2, 2003. The coasters that were in thought or planning to be built are:

Hammerhead Stall-A Venkoma Hammerhead Stall

Supernova-type of steel launched coaster

Rainer's Revenge-Intiman Mega Coaster(don't know wether jr. hyper ,hyper, giga, or terra. Great Northwest Development Co. has just let us know that it will be the tallest and fastest in the state and will be a top notch coaster)

unkown wooden coaster-(little have I found out about this coaster except that it will be a wooden coaster and made for family, meaning mediocre thrills or not made to scare people)

unknown-This is the only coaster scheduled for grand opening that I have not learned anything about except that it is family/kiddie and will be near by the childrens pool and the minature golf.

The Intamin Half-Pipe ride at Särkaniemi will be "only" 30 meters high so if Fantasy Island get their Vekoma HS it won't brake any records...

Hell yeah I think they'll reach 400!!

Who knows next thing ya know we'll see a 4500 ft drop. That would be awesome.

4500' drop? No. Who's gonna insure something that tall assuming they could afford to even build the lift hill? Not being a jerk, but take a physics course.

Sorrrrrrrry folks! Parks closed. The moose out front should have told you.
