I already know of that Acrophobia and Batwing will be of the elite coasters to be featured on Extreme Rides 2002. The 2000 version did show a half minute footage of Stealth (very similar to Batwing & X-Flight) in the "what's to come in the future" section of the program along with (as I recall) Goliath, Son of Beast, and contruction streams of Millennium Force.

I'm sorry if you missed it or just forgot, but HyperSonic XLC was one of the featured rides in the 2001 Extreme Rides TV program...and same with the following so other people don't list fore-featured rides

Well it's good to know that Apollo's Chariot and Raging Bull were never on the Extreme Rides TV program series. So don't be too hasty with ER2002 on featuring Nitro, as they have gone through a LOT of hyper coasters already and there would be no use of airing ANOTHER one, even though I would like to see Nitro aired on TV
Ohh, yeah Alpengeist is just another invert, Steel Dragon is just another giga-coaster. Just because a coaster is not a new prototype doesn't mean it doesn't deserve to be on the show. Nitro and Phantom Revenge are amazing rides and have some cool elements for a hyper. All the rides do not have to be incredibly new technology.
If I had to pick ONE ride to be on the ER2002 show it would definitely be PHANTOM'S REVENGE. Not necessarutly because the ride is that great (which by the way I think it is) but rather because of the whole story behind the ride. You know, it being a bastardized congregation of Arrow and Morgan technology.
My runner up would be the *new* Flight of Fear... jeremy ------------- "Nobody writes about the planes that land." Steve Salerno Washington Times 7-10-01
