I live in Atlanta and I was wondering if anyone out there knows whether or not SFOG will be getting a steel hyper any time in the near future. I think, as far as coasters go, this is one thing that is missing for them. Anyone out there heard anything?
Exactly what is the ceiling of SFOG, I mean Deja Vu is 191, and Acraphobia is just as tall, is SFOG only allowed to have that tall spikes or what? 191 ft intamin hyper could be insanely great! Cough * Expedetion GeForce* Cough.
Amusement Business confirms our rumors about the park adding a few smaller attractions this season. They report that the park will add five family attractions this season to include: Zamperla Balloon Race, Gondola Wheel, and a Chance mini mine train.
The odd hieght restrictions at the park are hard to precisely figure out because of the very hilly terrain at the park. Some areas are much lower than others. Usually the rumored area for a hyper is basically right where deja vu is, on the edge of the park near the go-kart track. That is the lowest part of the park.

The general rule is 200 feet, but this is not a set heigh restriction. The Great Gasp is over 200 feet (225 I believe?) - the park would need to get approval to build over the 200' mark (fulton county airport near the park). I agree, a 200 foot Intamin hyper with a drop to an underground tunnel would be incredible.
I think it would be cool if they had an intamin rocket coaster with the station and launch in an underground tunnel. it could be the same as xcelerator in height and speed. as you emerge from the tunnel you start the climb up the 215 foot tunnel, go over the top hat, back down the tower, and into the tunnel to the brake run.
