"How much longer can one-upmanship coaster wars last?" What does that mean?

In other words, how long can one park compete against another with the highest, fastest, longest, most, etc. coasters.

I don't think they outright compete with one another, but more compete for the media attention which adds up to more publicity and more profit for them. The media is always attracted to the new, better, and unusual, so I think we'll begin to see some very unusual designs and innovations, rather than higher/faster/steeper. As if we haven't started that route already with Son of Beast, Stealth, etc. The weirder it gets, the more I'll want to ride!

I think the "new element" wars is a much more interesting one to watch. That's more about imagination than the durability of materials and calculations on computers.

I agree with SFMMFREAK85 what does the question mean? I'm confused by it my-self.
