Who will get the next Giovanola hypercoaster

Which park in your opinion will get the next/ or should get the next Giovanola hypercoaster? Do you think it will be a near clone? Which park deserves it?

I'd say SFKK will get one next. They could really use a headline attraction.

I'm going to speculate that they might want to secure Six Flags Geauga Lake as a park with a quantity of diverse rides. I think if they want to stay on their growth spurt, they almost need to, especially when there's a Millennium Force and Magnum 90 minutes away. Love them or hate them, that's the reality of the Cleveland market.

And who cares if it's a clone of Titan... I have no plans to go to Texas anyway (ditto for X-Flight vs. Stealth).

I think that a park of SF in Europe will get a Hyper from Giavanola.

With the number of steel coasters at SFGL already, especially with the addition of a flying coaster this year, why SHOULD they get it? For crying out loud, when is PKI going to get something? Or is it one of those "Six Flags Only" type companies?

I'm not speculating on it because it's a park near where I live (as some of the previous posts have). It just makes sense when you look at the different markets Six Flags serves where competition is greatest.

I might give a nod to St. Louis as well, because when it comes down to it, there are a fair number of parks in Missouri.

I think Six Flags Ohio (Worlds of Adventure) will get the next one. Somehow I suspect this one will use the elevator system and will be 270 ft tall. Probably some over-bank turns. But I doubt it will have the pre-historic theme that Goliath and Titan have. SFKK is also a very possible candidate.

I think that a Gio would fit nicely over in front of Villain along side where 'Old' Geauga Lake Road was and into the employee parking lot and boneyard. It would fit rather nicely there and it is very flat so it wouldnt be too hard to plan and design (we know how much SF hates doing this). That would be awesome if SFStL got one, they need a sweet hyper. I would rather have a SROS SFNE type ride rather than a GIO.

I also think SFWoA will be the next park to get a Gio hyper. Why build an Intamin when there is a giga one hour away and a hyper four hours away? Gio has not broken into this part of the country yet and with SFWoA sitting pretty right now with all of the competition nearby, it more than likely will happen sometime down the road.

Though with their truly awesome trains, I prefer a B&M speed coaster like Raging Bull over an Intamin hyper anyday.

I can see an Intamin hyper at SFMW. SFKK, SFoG, and SFStL I think would benefit greatly from a Gio as well.

For Six Flags I think it will be SFWoA, because of the competition. I wouldn't be surprised if they filled the hyper needs here w/ a 4D. Reason: To make sure CP doesn't get one. But I doubt they care about that noe really. Maybe though.

Actually I would prefer a B&M Speed coaster as well they look just awesome. But any hyper would be great in this park.

People have talked about SFKK getting a hyper. Where would this thing go?

I sure hope my home park of SFStL doesn't get one...I mean sure, they're pretty cool, but I haven't really heard all that many good comments on them. I would much rather have a B&M, or Intamin. I just think an Intamin would fit in here better also.

This is From an experienced Giovanola Rider. YOU DONT WANT ONE OF THESE.
1. They Break down alot
2.The Brakes arent very good
3.You wat a Intamin or B&M Hyper trust me
4.They arent reliable at all!!!

I'm going SFWoA too, because they desperately need something to compete with the two speed coasters just down the road. And SF seems more than willing to keep putting big bucks into that park.

Oh really? How many Giovanolas have you ridden? I've only ridden Goliath myself, and I've ridden it many times without a problem. I'd say anybody would want a Gio'.
