Six Flags Worlds of Adventure has been granted a height variance to build a 210-foot coaster in the Bainbridge Township side of the park. As a condition of the approval, the park agreed not to build in residential and forested areas, and agreed not to seek annexation to the City of Aurora.
Read more from The Plain Dealer.
Ha... annex to Aurora... why would they do that? Aurora won't let them build anything!
So the questions begin... just what do they want to build? This is a big opportunity for them. If they can build something of the Superman variety they'll certainly win over a lot of enthusiasts.

Doesn't it seem as though morons always have the caps lock on?
AWESOME!!! YES! I hope its a mix between SROS @ SFNE and Expedition GeForce! THIS is great news!

Something along the lines of S:RoS would be great, but not another identical clone. Call up Intamin and have them take SFNE's SRoS and Expedition GeForce as inspiration.
Or give Morgan another go, they did very well on Phantom's Revenge after all ;)

This is GREAT NEWS! Superman will be flying high next year
Please please please please God let it be of the Superman variety....if necessary, even a clone will do, thanks.
You're right, Jeff. This is a huge opportunity the park - it will give SFWOA the high-profile "tall" coaster they don't have now. Depending on which coaster this is, this could propel them to a level or ride diversity and strength that would be unparalleled, in my opinion.

"The Future of Roller Coasters"
I just hope it will be an Intamin and not a Chance Morgan!
Something along the lines of S:RoS would be great, but not another identical clone.
I'm assuming you're talking about the SFA and SFDL versions? Trust me, if it's a clone of the SFNE version, you may never want to leave the park! (Or maybe that's just me! :))
Is it true its always happy hour here? If it is I'd like to stay a while....
AC?, RB?, MF?, DD?, PR? Who can keep track of it all?
And let's remember folks: the can dig a tunnel, so while the lift may be 210' high, the drop can be MUCH longer ;-)

Don't forget "Operation Graduation" June 1st @ SRM - bring Pat Koch a graduation card! See Coasterbuzz News for details.
Even if it is a Superman clone, I doubt it will be Superman themed. The park already has one Superman themed ride on the opposite end of the park. Unless the station is near S:UF, it doesn't make sense, although I guess I shouldn't put anything past SF.
Besides a traditional hyper, 210 feet also sounds about the right height for a 4-D. Let's not keep that possibility out of the picture.
Whatever it is, I am getting excited...
I get the feeling there's a conspiracy over at King's Island to remove anything that has "K" or "C" in its initials.
