The memo making the rounds to newspapers and around Six Flags Great America indicating the construction of a 300-foot roller coaster is a hoax, according to a real memo sent around the park. A number of factual problems expose the memo as a fraud.

Some enthusiass is getting their rocks off this morning knowing that their bogus memo actually made the news, even if it was only to say, "It's bullsh*t!"
"the Cobra in Dammam, Ash Sharqiyah Province, Saudi Arabia is a mere 111 feet tall with only two inversions, making it similar to Great America's old Turn of the Century."

Ummm, a quick glance across rcdb MIGHT lead one to believe it had the same two loops as ToTC had....but ToTC wasn't a shuttle. Cobra navigates the SAME loop twice...
bill, STILL really wants to try a Pax Cobra....even five years later, LOL...
