I win a smug mustache, of course. And skinny jeans.

I'm not sure it is worthy of the hype this coaster is getting.

I'm guessing that some of those turns (the outward banked one specifically), at 400 plus feet up could be real winners. So could that El Loco style drop, even if short. It's one thing to plus 90 degrees 100 feet up , it should be something quite different at 300+.

That visual could be enough of a WoW for us jaded types, and will certainly be a thrill for the GP. If it ever gets built.

That's one of the "new" things about this strata-...."I think this time it's going to work."

It is in Orlando after all...

Both my brother and sister brought this coaster to my attention on Facebook, to which I replied, "I've already seen this on Coasterbuzz".

What prize do I win? LOL

Don't you have Facebook to avoid, and people to tell about your avoiding Facebook?

That doesn't even make any sense.

Moving along....

I think that if this does get built, I might have to just make a special trip down that way.

Absolutely! There's a mall, and there's Beefy King, and they have a Trader Joe's, too. :-)

Beefy King looks pretty tasty! And on another note, I believe it said there would be some kind of shopping and other things available to do.

Isn't one of the floors dedicated to tightey whitey wrestling? I thought I read that somewhere... Or maybe I'm confused.

I just hate having to park mid-Poler.

My cousin just shared the ride video with me on Facebook last night, which I found funny. What I found sad was that it was from T P R. What I found interesting is that it had an interview at the end that I had not seen before with US Thrill Rides' Michael KItchen. In the short interview, he mentioned, and I paraphrase...

Over 500 feet tall. The actual height is a secret right now. Loading area will be air conditioned. Spiral cable lift. At least three world records. One of the tallest inversion in the world, which is the barrel roll seen in the video. The tallest "dip" in the world, at a steepness of 123°. The only structure in the world with two over 90° inversions, which I'm not exactly sure what that is. Ride time well over 4 minutes. 60 MPH at bottom of tower.

The Skyplex area will have over a million square feet of entertainment.

Sounds cool. I would share the video, but, T P R. lol
