Ive been wondering this ever since i heard about MF being called the Giga coaster. What will they call the first 400-foot coaster? I know the S:TE is 400' but they didnt classify it under a specific name for its height.
Anyway, i thought they would call it either a ultra coaster or gamma coaster. ------------- CP in 2002, get to the point
Whatever the park/manufacturer comes up with for advertising. ------------- There are currently 11 coasters with the name Batman, 8 with the name Superman and 22 with the name Boomerang. Batman and Superman: The Ultimate Chiller Knight Flight Krypton Escape Ride.

Yeah it wouldn't be verysmart for cp to build a coaster over the lake. For one they would have to put in new supports every few years. Also they would have to that spot some how and that would be expensive as all get out. Lets just say if they were to put a 400 footer there they wouldn't need to worry about the room because the it would just go over everything :)
I can understand how a 400 ft drop would scare you, but.....
That doesn't make much sense, GenuineCynic. Coaster builders have said that there is no limit to how high a coaster could be built. Why couldn't a 400 ft coaster be safely built? That would be NOTHING compared to some structures mankind has built. Also, why would it be a mechanical headache any more so than other coasters? Replacing wheel is no big deal. Many big coasters get wheels changed every day or 2.
