Limit of Coasters

There must be a limit to how high and fast a coaster would be built, as I won't go on a S&S Thrust Coaster if it was more that 200ft, I guess the limit is 350ft and 120mph,

Why would 350 feet be the height limit? There are plenty of man made structures that top 1000 feet. The only limit to height of a coaster is how much money a park is willing to spend to reach those heights. Steel Dragon topped out at about 50 million, but everything costs more in Japan. In 10 years I am sure the 400 foot mark, (by a complete circut coaster) will be broken.

So you want a coaster in your backyard? I hope you have a big backyard.

I sure hope the USA beats Japan or Europe to it!! I can't afford to take frequent trips out there but if I want to bad enough got to any USA since I can drive to most of them!
