I do want to go to this park. If its 359 ft, which I doubt, I don't think it will be B&M. Remember they turned down Cedar Point for a 300ft coaster. Also, if it was B&M, they better get some new supports ----------------- You are the Weakest Link, Goodbye.
I'm starting to wonder if Gigas are really that good of an idea. With all the speed they produce, you need those long banked turns to keep it under control, and they requires that you have a TON of space to have any sort of interesting layout.
Don't get me wrong, I love MF, but it def. didn't live up to my expectations. I really really want to ride SD2K, as I love the Morgan Hypers, and I guess it's layout is similar.
Anyway, the point is that I hope if companies continue to build Gigas, that they figure out a way to have a more twisting/airtime type of layout (like Raging Bull), rather than just huge sweeping turns. Also - what about a giga looper ?!?!?
(btw, if Gigas ever do get more interesting layouts, I bet it will be B&M that does it).
------------- Current favorite coasters: Wooden: 1) Beast 2) Raven 3) Son of Beast 4) The Boss 5) Timber Wolf Steel: 1) Raging Bull 2) Millennium Force 3) V2 4) Wild Thing 5) Mr. Freeze
hey How can you say this coaster looks boring? its almost twice as long as MF. this Coaster IS an Intamin. Many people have known about this for a long time but this layout is awesome. 6 Air Hills (includign Drop) compared to MF's 4, Several over banks and the turns included on Superman: ROS. Im not being biast but i think this coaster could indeed be better than both MF and SD2K without too much problem. Not just on stats alone 350ft is the height that most people have known for a while and about 8800ft in length. Just off the topic a 4th Intamin mega coaster for that area is being added at Six Flags Holland but it will be dwarfed by this thing.
Note: im not tryna get at MF its a great coaster on its own but what else am i gonna comapre it to lol.

As said before, its an Intamin, I agree, look at the hill, if you look closley, see the track, also, it does have some airtime, but look at all of the turns at low levals, Looks to focus on the speed more than the air, kinda like MF, and S:ROS(not SFNE's)
If it's 345 ft. it will go faster than 95. At least by 1 0r 2 mph.
It's definitely an Intamin Giga, and my first reactions were that it doesn't look all that dissimilar to MF, meaning it will definitely be a winner.
