Looping hypers?

Friday, June 15, 2001 1:22 PM
I was wondering if there are any looping hypers operating besides SoB. Phantom's Revenge was a pretty good coaster and more should be built like that.

A roller coaster with merit is what i'd say..looping hypers should be more common

Manhattan express is 200' tall..but the biggest drop is only 144'..so is that a hyper? I have not a clue :)

X will probably be one of the first looping hypers since steel phantom had it's loop removed..

"Hyper" is just a label. some people use it to mean different things. Who cares if a coaster is truly a hyper or not? Does it really matter?

All of Manhattan Express structure except for the loading station and the initiial part before the lift chain are about 60' off the ground, so I don't think it's truly a hyper. That's like saying the High Roller is something beyond a giga-coaster.

Are all the B&M sitdown and floorless coasters under 200 ft ?!?!?!

Nevermind - I just checked. They only get into the 160s. B&M - you've got some work to do ! ;) *** This post was edited by Joe Carroll on 6/15/2001. ***
