if millineum force had been made before magnum xl-200, would millineum force be consitered the first hyper as well as the first giga?

The meaningless buzz words would most likely be different, but if there were no 200 foot coasters before MF I don't know how it couldn't be considered the first 200 foot+ (In addition to 300+)

The classifications like "hyper" and "giga" are pretty arbitrary, with no official definitions.  If there weren't a "hyper" before MF, that term could very well have been applied to the 300' height instead of the 200' height.

Either way, it doesn't matter.  I personally don't even classify coasters as "hyper" or "giga" -- to me they're just "nonlooping steel"...

WELL if you want to get scientific if Millennium Force was built before Magnum then it wouldn't be called Millennium Force because it'd be in the early 90s!  So they probably would have called it like Magnum XXL 300.  Then Magnum would have been built in 2000, but then it would have been a good ride because Ron Toomer wouldn't have done it!
Is it the roar of Kumba or the kumba of Roar? Discuss!
