I dont know how much it cost . IMO I feel it is better than SFA . The drop is 78 degrees.

i believe they are very close to being the same price. It is the same length of track give or take a few feet. the only thing that could cost more than the others are the tunnels and the extra height to the supports. i believe they are close. and yes it is 78 degrees pretty damn good.

First, don't ask questions, just ride it! heh :)

Second, If you liked SFDL's or SFA's S:RoS, you will like this 2-10X better!

Third, the height of all the S:RoS's are the same (the drops, however, are not) and the lengths are all just about the same [Even though SFNE's seems a lot longer than SFA/SFDL's.. its not..] just better use of a track layout and hills I guess :).

Fourth, you might want to check out a movie of both the S:ros's [sfdl & sfne] {sorry for the ad, but its useful in this case :)} at my website and you can compare for yourself....

Go ride it! You will not be dissapointed :)

Price was somewhere near $10 million. I've ridden all 3 and SFNE's has more hills and more air.

$10 million? No way in hell. Ride of Steel at SFA was at least $17 million, if not more.

Um, I don't think SFA's was that much...I remember reading when SFDL bought their's it cost $12M.  Not cheap, but not as expensive as you stated.

I'm sure SFNE's was more due to the fact they had to excavate the tunnels, and it has more "higher" portions, ie more costly supports.
