Statosphere Towers New Coaster

Tuesday, September 4, 2001 11:58 AM
Does anyone know anymore details on the proposed new 700 footer coaster to be built on the side of the strat tower. Such as how long would a ride like this take to build and when it will be passed through planning rec's, and are there any decent art worksof the proposed ride? Would this ride be ready by next spring or next millenium.

Screamscape has a link to a rough picture of the concept which should give you a good idea of what it would look like, if built.

Also, I know it is an item of debate (I hope I don't start arguments!), but it is most likely not a "real coaster" (whatever that is!).  The Stratosphere Tower refered to it as a Freefall ride.  I feel that is a good way to think about it, as it seems to be exactly like an old Intamin freefall (Demon Drop) on steroids!
