I don't know if anyone has seen this, but Chance Morgan now has an updated look to their web site. It appears that they don't seem to know the difference between a hyper or giga coaster or any other type. http://www.chancemorgan.com/coasters3.html
They call a 300ft coaster a hyper, a 200ft coaster a hyper and a 150ft coaster a hyper coaster. Has no one informed them that the terms change when you reach a new height?

These terms are arbitrary at best. Perhaps all of their coaster travel at hyper-speed? Hyper? Giga? Strata? Big? Bigger? Gigantic? I could care less, as long as it rides good.

They should have an astrix on the airtime claim and say that they would have airtime if they could build a ride that could run consistently without the trims, but they can't by themselves and they won't warrenty the ride if you use some other company's magnetic breaks.

I sense a little tension between Chance Morgan and RavenTTD.

They do differentiate between the sizes though, just like a Vekoma's various SLC models:
SLC (662m Prototype), SLC (765m Extended w/Helix), SLC (787m Extended), SLC (Custom)
I dont see any real problems I suppose, though many people would argue than a 150' tall coaster isnt a hyper, but like tambo said "as long as its good" a la Goliath and Expedition GeForce.

I like how they're all called hyper. That's what I've been doing all along. ;)

It only took them , what ,two years to update the site? CM makes their money selling flat rides. The few coasters they have built since the merger have been family rides. As far as warrenties, if you replace parts in a brand new item that are not OEM without the manufactuers permission NOBODY will honor it.
Slight nit pick hear, BRAKES are what stop a ride, BREAKS is what happens when it ceases to function.

Yes, it's nicely done, although I noticed that they are still using part of the old site (the parts/service link).

I love this company - Can't wait til there next major coaster - P.s. Phantom's Revenge rulz!

I can't wait to try something other than Phantom. Don't get me wrong, it is my #1, and I doubt any of their other coasters will top that, but I'd like a full blooded Chance.
Oh, and does it blow your mind that Intamin calls Milly, S:RoS, and Goliath all 'Mega Coasters', and that TTD, Storm Runner, Etc. aren't called 'Rocket Coasters', but 'Accelerator Coasters'?:)
Buzz words, enthusiasts are more likely the ones that use those terms to actually mean height, type of launch, etc.
