The indoor Nickelodeon Universe theme park at the American Dream complex is planning to build two roller coasters. The Euro-Fighter will take riders on a "beyond-vertical drop." On the other coaster coming to American Dream, the Spinning Coaster, cars will rotate on a vertical axis and move on the track.

So are they straight up copying Nick U at MOA? Hope they add the flume too, that’s they best ride at that park.
Probably since both malls are owned by the same company.
I thought this project stalled again. Now I'm curious because they were having so many problems getting it off the ground. Can't wait until 2019!
Both coasters will be much bigger than their equivalents at Mall of America. For example, the Eurofighter here will be a clone of Takabisha that will peek out of the ceiling of the park and give a view of Manhattan. The drop will be 122 degrees versus 121 in Japan and will give the ride a world record.
After choosing the Takabisha clone, they went and designed a 3000+ feet long spinning coaster also from Gerstlauer.
At IAAPA, Ride Entertainement confirmed the Takabisha clone will still have over the shoulder restraints. The reason is technical: Gerstlauer can't fit both the launch magnets and lap bar mechanism on the floor of the cars.
