How many Hypercoasters have there been outside the U.S. either defunct or operating.

Fujiyama
Pepsi Max: The Big One
Steel Dragon

Bandit? I remember this mentioned in another thread.
Moonsault Scramble? I remember reading about this coaster but can't find anythin on it.

The Scrambler was taken down a few years ago, I think. I think there is one other Arrow hyper in Japan. There was a picture of it at thier web site at one time.

Everybody calm down, the coasters do not open for another fifteen minutes.

No, it was a looping shuttle coaster. It was over 200 feet tall at the reverse points though.

Bandit is a hyper (although, it *is* under 200ft tall, so you may not consider it a hyper) from what I know, same with Titan, an Arrow designed hyper (again, not over 200' tall). Also, next year we'll see an Intamin Mega debut at Holiday Park in Germany. Colossos, the woodie you spoke of earlier, will not break two-hundred feet. It will be close, I think it's around 196' tall.

One comment though. What do you think Oblivion and G5 are? They don't invert, and have drops of 186' (I'm pretty sure). That's only a little over eight feet off of Magnum's drop height. Is that a hyper to you or no?

Joe, who never realized the US had so many damn hypers, and the rest of the world so little.
