And some still doubt it being over 400! (Despite Jeff outright telling us! Also reminding us about unsupported track on WT and Xcell)

No really, it's only like 250ft tall right now!!!

Or not! It certainly looks as though Cedar Point is going to settle the "tallest rollercoaster" argument. I hope they break the speed record (Dodonpa goes 120mph?), but they might not.

I'm praying it just won't be a L-TH-B.

What is so bad about L-TH-B? I mean c'mon! some people...

If you seriously think it wont be fun, dont line up. Its not CP's fault you dont like what they are building for the public. They are not there to meet all your needs. So stop complaning already! IT is a LTHB, and weather or not you like it or not, deal with it.

I didn't say I wouldn't like a LTHB, but I still am hoping that CP will pull a suprise and show that it's not a LTHB.

Listen this thing will be going so fast coming down just hitting the brakes will be awesome! Anyway if they wanted to use up the rest of the energy they'd need to make the track longer then Millie and why have two coasters with the same basic layout. If you want a great Giga then ride Millie, if you want to ride a completely insane launched coaster then hop on aboard this monster! :)

If you look at those pictures and see that this coaster is taller than Power Tower, then you atleast know that it is already 300 ft. tall! That is just easy to see. If you don't see that, then I dont know what is wrong w/ you. So, how can you say that it is only 250 ft. tall right now?

Also the top hat is farther back than Millie and PowerTower so it is really taller than it looks.

The guy was joking when he said it is only 250 feet. If you guys read his post you would know he's joking, just read after 250 feet.

Can you explain to me how hitting a break run at 115 MPH will be fun? On Xcelerator, hitting the breaks at 60 miles per hour is painful if you don't have your hands on the grab bar.

Does anyone know if the coaster has all of those retractable break things for one the train slows significantly, and as an anti rollback device? Ae they not installed yet (they were pre installed on Xcelerator).

Look at the size of the break run. It's obvious that this will be a nice gradual braking.

Just wait until you feel the lapbar smashing into your bladder when you're stapled.
