For two years Hersheypark in Pa was able to say it was the first and only inverted coaster in PA. This year the Talon is coming to dorney claiming that it's the tallest. The lift for the Talon is 135 feet and the lift for Great Bear at Hershey is only 90 feet. But at the dorney sight the drop is only 120 feet compared to the drop of great bear which is 124 feet. I'm not sure where I was going with this but I just wanted to point that out.

I guess Dorney could say it has the tallest inverted coaster, and Hersheypark could say it has the longest drop on an inverted coaster in the state. Both parks get a factual claim that's promotable.
LIfe is something that happens when you can't get to sleep.
