How many Parks could build a 400ft + ?

Friday, January 24, 2003 6:31 PM
With many Parks located in busy metropolitian areas (zoning laws) and the expense; How many Parks could really build a 400 foot coaster? There has yet to be another Giga Coaster to built let alone another Tera. What Parks could get away with it. Will anyone challenge CP in the height catagory?

In 1989 you would have been asking the same thing about a 200 foot coaster I'd imagine.

Well as you might not have known SFAW is getting half of Shockwave which will be attached to half of Drachen Fire and will be placed on the supports from the defunct Moonsault Scramble to break the record of TTD.

Quick Answer to the question: As Many parks that have the mony and get the city to pass the project...not hard to figure out, really.

Well since no on wants to answer your guestion like they have some sense i'll give it a try lol.

Well imo CP/SFMM is the only to parks really capabable of building pretty much what ever they want no matter how big or tall. I know the Busch parks have no problem with money, but I don't know to much about the sizes of the parks nor the areas their in, they also don't seam like their to interested in building rides of that magnitude anyway. Paramount parks, money wouldn't be an issue either but out of the Paramount parks I've been too(PGA, PKI, PCW) PKI is the only one I think would have the room, the market, and the support from the heads of the company for an attraction of that size. Disney, money no problem, but their not interested in attractions like Gigas or Strats. Universial again money no problem and again don't seam interested in the big boys. So i've came to the conclusion that the only parks in the US that's capable, interested in, have the market, and support for an attraction of that magnitude is CP/SFMM.

Certainly many parks would be prohibited by local law or proximity to airports. And, as CoasterXfreak said, most others either couldn't afford it or aren't motivated in that direction. In the US the likely candidates would be SFMM and the other largest SF parks, though I don't know the legal positions of the others. PKI and (less likely) PKD would be other candidates.

I thought the "meaning irrelevant made up" part would clarify my sarcasm, but apparently not. Poo.

(Showtime at the) ApolloAndy....surely you didn't miss the definition of "sarchasm" in the other thread...those *in the know* didn't miss your point at all...

Apollo Andy, what's your dirt doing in Boss 'Gator's Sarchasm?

"That's not my dirt in his chasm."

Or a Guns n' Roses reference.

I didn't miss the sarchasm, but I already mentioned it in another thread, so I figured I should give it a rest.
