New Stratosphere 700ft Ride ??

Saturday, July 7, 2001 11:08 PM
if its true that the Stratosphere Hotel in Las Vegas is gonna add a 700ft freefall drop tower to the side of the tower, that would be f***ing insane! 700ft !?!? thats almost two S:TE on top of one another! that would be one hell of a ride if it happens!

Why wouldn't it be? You wouldn't even need to build it on the side of a tower...Intamin has already stated that the technology they used on MF could be used to make a 750 ft. coaster.

would you be lifted to the top of the tower then dropped?
or would you board on the top of the tower?

Sure 300 ft. + is a giga, but a ride like this would not qualify for a title like that. This will be more of a Thrill ride, like Superman The Escape (okay okay, you can call it a coaster if you like), and Superman I believe is something like 400 ft. and it never got a title like giga or tera.

I think in a thread from a while ago we said that a 400+ is a tera-coaster.

Yeah topping the Big Shot will be difficult but those insane people at the Stratosphere have allready proved that they like to open things that the vast majoritu of the public probably wont ride

Well technically they are talking about a boring Arrow fishhook from what I've heard. These are like 1st Generation Intamin Freefalls right? Well, then the free fall would only be about half the ride and the other half would be the slope to horizontal track.

Question, is this going to be a 700+ foot coaster or a free fall type ride? 700+ foot coaster would be the worlds tallest!

It's not even official yet, so theres no question of being a thrillride or coaster yet.

what would be more exciting; this 700ft coaster, or the supposed 95 degree ride?
