What do you think the newest coaster type will be?

To answer my question I would think that a launched suspended coaster would be sweet. But if would have to many G's. What does anyone else think?

I think a hyper floorless or a hyper inverted. Something by B&M.

There is actually a hyper inverted(actually a Vekoma SLC) planned for 2002 in a park in the U.K.(can someone help me out on the park?) Since it is a Vekoma SLC, I don't expect it to be a great ride, but we'll see...

I think a hyper floorless would be great. B&M coasters are so smooth that I think that they could even handle making a 200'+ multielement. Could you imagine the first 200' vertical loop? :)

maybe they can have a top and bottom coaster. the top can be floorless the bottom can be inverted?That sounds cool.

They already have a launched suspended coaster. It's called Volcano, I am pretty sure.

When Disney finally fires Eisner they will probably build the long awaited fire mountian, the world's first "transforming" coaster. From the descrption i got it starts as a normal ride then halfway through it stops and "transforms" into a roto-drop or something like that. Until they fire Eisner the deadline for its building just keeps getting pushed back due to budget cuts. Currently they are saying 2003 but i expect it will be pushed further back (like Beastly Knigdom). Sad... Sad... Sad...

Charlie, Alpengeist is 195 ft. and made my B&M. That's almost a hyper-inverted.

Just looking at them, I can hardly tell the difference of inverts to suspendeds like Volcano. I defintely like inverts better though.

Well I think we will actually see a "tilt" coaster built soon. Probably next year. It seems everyone has forgotten about this coaster type. Hopefully a Hammerhead stall will be built as well.
I really would not include a hyper floorless or a hyper inverted as a new coaster type. Just raising the height a little bit.

I think he means a Launched Suspended Swinging coaster like Big Bad Wolf at BGW and Ninja at SFMM hence the extreme Gs.

A Tilt Coaster would be sweet. However my most anticipated new coaster type would be SW5 at Alton Towers. Gossip is that it'll be the first B&M Flying Dutchman. While Vekoma built the first FD, I'm pretty sure B&M will come up with a better design.

Check out these sketches at SW5 Online. Way cool!

True: but Alpie's drop is 170' a good 30' short of the "hyper" mark. At least the height of the drop is what most people go by.

I love the idea of a B&M Launched Floorless, or their rumored Flying Coaster (also launched, from what I have heard)

Coastergenius: Intamin's Volcano and S:UE are inverted not suspended. Next time don't be so quick with the "dumbass" comments, eh?

Nope it's the height of the coaster if it went by the drop then Mangnum would not be a hyper as it's highest drop is 196'.

Also i think a suspended launched coaster is possible, why would there be too many G's?

That's why I said "most people go by." Magnum seems to be the exception to the rule, however. "Hyper" is a rather poorly defined term at best. There are many accepted interpertations of "hyper-coaster" out there. Dare I bring up the height of S:TE? (pretend I didn't type that)

My original point of Alpie's drop being 30' shorter than 200' still stands. Magnum's is much closer to 200'.

This coaster will have a loop of 61 meters (200 feet) high!, a first drop of 82 meter (270 feet)and it will be the longest, tallest and fastest Inverted coaster in the world. (Fantasy Island). Cost 39 miljoin Dollars!! THIS VEKOMA WILL BE SMOOTH AND A GREAT RIDE!!!!

I would love to see Arrow bring back the suspended coaster concept, but remove the outer chassis on the cars, and make them floorless, B&M inverted style cars. Maybe even with four-across seating. I love the suspended coaster, and this would make it even better imo. No need for inversions, just floorless free-swinging vehicles with awesome g-forces. That would rock. Peace. :)

I really think this is a good idea!!! Take a flying coaster like Stealth, and put it on a track like Superman at Magic Mountain. Put in a half twist right outside of the station so you are hanging, then launch. When you go up the verticle tack you are now looking out, instead of up. You get a better view, and you can loose your stomach when you come down. I first thought about this when stealth came out. I would personally love this ride!
