Next hyper in Ohio?

Tuesday, May 1, 2001 2:07 PM
Will it be at PKI or SFWOA either way I don't care.I would like it to be a B&M though,I like Arrow hypers but every B&M coaster I've been on I loved.

With Cedar Point's giant Millenium Force and Magnum XL-200 as well as PKI's Son Of Beast on the side, I don't think any of the nearby parks would risk doing another hyper. Especially if it didn't measure up to MF.

I don't care that much for Arrow hypers!!!! The best one they have made is Desperado!!! Magnum is just a lil too rough on the bunny hops for me!!
I have this feeling that the next hyper in Ohio will be at SFWOA!!!! I hope B&M or Intamin makes it!!!!

Genius: Arrow has done three (or four if you count Steel Phantom) hypers:
Magnum XL-200 @ CP
Pepsi Max: The Big One @ BPB in England
Desparado @ Stateline Nevada

And of course 'X' (if they ever build the darn thing ;)) at 200ft will be of hyper proportion.

You should absolutely count Steel Phantom. They made it. It doesn't matter that it is no longer around, they still made 4.

Actually, they built another one. I think it's at some park in Japan.

Anyway, next year SFWOA will get a clone of Titan. Oh wait! Then it wouldn't be a good ride because it would be a clone! *gasps from the crowd*

*rolling eyes*

Actually the Arrow hyper in Japan is called Titan, too. I wish for any kind of hyper over at SFGL. I hope it goes along the route that old GL road went along side Villain.

do u think this is true there big guy?
ive been wondering myself what SFWoA lacks..
1- hyper... something to set it apart
2- an inverted masterpeice
3- and of course get a deja vu in there(sorry clone haters0i expect ths will happen just like it happened with boomerangs
4- a drop tower would be nice

lets go 6 flags give us this in 2 years and we will leave u alone... pleeeeeeeeeeeeez

I hope SFWOA gets one because they have all the land now that has no height rstriction (I think) they should use it and also the need a good drop ride like RonG said.

I think SFWoA will get either a B&M hyper or Giovanola Hyper. Maybe around 270 ft or so? It has to be up there to compete with MF. It also has to be good, so I think they are going to kick it up with a custom B&M or Giovanola.

Why would SFWoA have two themed rides to Superman. This makes no sense. I look for a hyper coaster to be built without a tiein to any type of superhero. Either A Giovanola or a B&M.

Prediction: SFWoA's next coaster will be a B&M hyper comparable to Nitro. It would be the only B&M hyper in Ohio, and would most likely be a custom installation due to the fact that Six Flags doesn't seem to clone B&M coasters any more.

I would like to see a bright orange Giovanola at SFO. I like Arrow of course, but something different in the area would be grand.

Send a Morgan down to PKI.

I would think SFWOA would get one with all the ones Six Flags put in the last two years at various parks. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if it happens next year.

I really hope to see a Giovanola hyper at SFWOA in 2003!

I really can't see SFWoA adding ANY kind of coaster next year... although I wouldn't have put money on them adding one for 2001 and they did...

If SF is going to cut down on spending, I can't see them adding anything huge in Ohio when there are other parks in the chain that could use a major ride, such as Fiesta Texas, St. Louis, Darien Lake, or New England (to name a few).

I wouldn't be surprised to see Kings Island build a hyper in the near future, they are a huge park without any type of B&M coaster, and I think something along the lines of RB, AC or Nitro would be welcome in the park.

Who built Fujiyama? I was under the impression it was an Arrow creation, but I could be wrong... definitely wouldn't be the first time.
