I really don't think we'll see a hyper-looper. But maybe we'll see a B&M sitdown with speed trains...

I think we may see one in a few years. Heck, they are already making 160 ft. loopers. Why not add 40 ft.?

A 180' loop would be cool!

Alpeingeist is 195 feet tall. That's good enough for me.

I've yet to see a 200 ft. + coaster with loops that is very popular. A certain past Kennywood coaster comes to mind.

If you're talking about a Nitro sized hyper-looper, then I do't think it will happen. The ride will be way to expensive and it will take up a lot more room than average B&M's, which already take up a whole lot.

Arrow hyper looper=Steel Phantom (defunct)!

I don't think we need any hyper-loopers. Mega loopers are tall enough, and they don't take up a whole park. If there was another hyper-looper built by a company like B&M, it would probably take up at least half of the park! Anyways, if it's built right, it can feel faster and higher than it really is.

I think it would be a neat experience. See the problem with Steel Phantom is that it was not smooth at all and was rugged but it went so fast into those tiny loops that it pulled a lot of G's! B&M is the smoothest company in the world and with their freeform style they make the inversion one of the smoothest parts of the ride. I think they would be able to create a very successful Hyper-Looper!

Though Steel Phantom was an excellent coaster, the inversions just took away the fun of a hypercoaster. I think Magnum is a prime example of what a hypercoaster should be, a coaster with lots of big hills packed with plenty of airtime. After the first two hills on Steel Phantom the rest of the ride was just kind of a snoozer, this is why I have to make it to Kennywood this year to ride Phantoms Revenge.
