They're now offering a "Maxi" version which is currently 65 meters high (about 200 ft, right ?).
Here's where they really one up S&S - check out the cool theming:
The first Maxi model will have the rocket theme...pretty cool.
(Don't get me wrong, S&S rocks, but I wonder how they compare on cost, and if S&S would / could offer theming this cool).
Anyone ever ridden the small Huss drop rides ?
Current favorite coasters:
Wooden: 1) Beast 2) Raven 3) Son of Beast 4) The Boss 5) Timber Wolf
Steel: 1) Raging Bull 2) Millennium Force 3) V2 4) Wild Thing 5) Mr. Freeze

Come on Mamoosh, does that really pass as themed? ;)
Honestly, they put a little mural on the top (and not even on every side) and put a light up "bell" and call it themed. Come on Disney!
But those Huss rides look great. I'm not sure if they will compete with the very well proven and well established S&S in this category, but the themes on those Huss rides looks great!!
0-82 in 2.3 seconds! =Wow!
S&S better get their act together, the bad publicity of late is probably detrimental for their business.Think about it, most parks can deal with having malfunctions on prototype rides but actually having to dismatle the ride(Vertigo situation) reflects poorly on a company. Two of S&S brightest products are having technical difficulties to the point of closure, its going to be tough to sell these products with the abhorrent results in the last year.
It could be a perfect time for other companies to capitalize on S&S failures. I hope ,though, that Stan can get it together. If anyone can do it, its Stan. You can do IT!!!
Nothing... NOTHING... can prepare you for... the Fourth Dimension!
