Is it possible to make a Stand-Up Hyper? Or would the stresses be to great?

I'm not sure it would be stress. I just think B&M doesn't want to try that...

The topic should be, "Will there ever be another stand up." I highly dought there will ever be one built if we don't see one in the next few years. Too bad Stand ups are my favorite coaster type.

Im sure it's possible, many coasters aren't far off, (Mantis, Riddlers Revenge). But I pray to god that they don't create a stand-up hyper, the G's on stand-ups are great as it is and being 200 feet tall would just make it worse.

I think they could...but reduce the number of inversions. Maybe have like a 45 degree loop and sideway hills. It would be fun, I think :)

ok ive said this before many times in stand-up coaster topics.....

Stand-up coasters produce the same amount of g's as any other coaster, you just feel it more because you are enduring with your legs.

Nice point Smartace. If it is properly deigned, of course we COULD see one. I don't see a park buying one in the near future though.

I'm still waiting for a stand-up coaster with 7 inversions, just because that's one of the few coaster types remaining that has yet to achieve the magic number. I think the very first one should be built at Busch Gardens Tampa, then Florida would have one of every type of 7 inversion B&M coaster in the world! I've heard rumors that BGT will get a stand-up or possibly a launched stand-up with 6 inversions, but if that's true, I certainly hope that they increase the inversion total to 7, for the sake of continuity. Any new inverting coaster built in Florida should have at least 7 inversions, otherwise the cosmic balance could be upset, and the whole state might sink into the ocean! Florida is on a roll with 7 inversion coasters, and they should definitely continue with it. Besides, Florida NEEDS a 7 inversion stand-up coaster! It's the only type of coaster that they don't have yet, besides the newest types of coasters, and I think that a 7 inversion stand-up would do very well there. If one of them is ever built anywhere, it should be built in Florida!

It's all about how it's designed. As someone said before, Wildcat is pulling around the same as MF is.

I think Intamin would be the company to do it, no bicycle seat! Hooray!

i think the general public is sort of scared of stand up coasters, I always thought that since the lines for Riddler's Revenge were never as long as they should have been for how cool that ride is. I think the average family looks at stand up coasters and runs away in fear once they get too tall or have too many inversions.

A stand up hyper would just about rip your legs off if you aren't standing up straight in the car liek you are supposed to.
