I just got a letter from SFMW and at the end it says. . .
P.S. It's fast, It's tall, It's sensational. It's new in 2003! And it's a secret!
Hmmmm I wonder what they are up to

I don't think they have a drop tower. So, that could be an option.

It can't be too tall, they have a 180 foot height limit there. I'm thinking maybe a drop ride of some kind as well, maybe something to start off underground like IOA's Dr. Doom's Freefall.

In case you didn't see, here is another thread about SFMW a few topics down on this page. http://www.coasterbuzz.com/forums/thread.asp?ForumID=11&TopicID=27502

Hmm. *cough* SFoT *cough* think...

Yeah thats what im thinking and hoping, but does Thriller count as being Tall by todays standards?

In the eyes of the public, yes, I think Texas Tornado would be considered tall and fast. In their general opinion, all coasters are tall and fast. ;)
And Kraxleridah, I don't think that would be possible due to the height limits imposed on the park.kRaXLeRidAh
0-82 in 2.3 seconds! =Wow!

Yeah they wont be building a drop ride after the V2 fiasco

The Texas Tornado is a big small scale coaster, if you will. Confused?

Not confused at all, what looks and seems like a mile of track conveiantly crammed into a tiny footprint, so you and just stick the darn thing anywhere you darn well please.

It's one of the first things you see coming into Houston a few miles out. It won't be there anymore. :(
For the sake of yourself, don't take anything I say seriously.

Looks like some poeple don't knwo their SF parks. kRaX said SF OVER TEXAS not Astroworld. He is thinking along the lines of a new S&S tower. If he really was thinking of Texas Tornado then he was the one that was wrong.

Well, just because SFMW failed to get a variance for V2 doesn't mean they won't be smarter and actually get APPROVAL before exceeeding the local height restriction THIS time...assuming of course they're intending on *tall*. We would HOPE that they've learned the expensive lesson....;)
