I don't think building a giga 10ft taller 75 miles away is necessarily going to be a draw worth spending 30M for, If it's coaster maybe an Intamin accelerator. If it's not a coaster than a starflyer or maybe it's just an observation tower.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

A starflyer would be a perfect fit at BGW. It's such a gorgeous park, the views would be amazing 315ft in the air.

After letting my imagination run with the thoughts of a 315' coaster a Star Flyer/Screamer makes the most sense.

Small footprint, easy to theme, 315' makes it barely taller than KD's but taller none the less, coincidentally the same height as KD's Eiffel Tower but a ride and nor an observation deck, and laughs at SFA's Wonder Woman by 70'. More over, it is basic ride that they don't have with no need to challenge 400' mark. The important part would be to keep the ride height at 48".
Meister Brau just wants a path from CC to SM at SFA, meal plan burrito, some shade, and a restroom back there.

Yeah, I was missing that too. This fb post (with the trashiest watermarks I've ever seen) seems to be the only confirmation I could find. Although the document seems legit with this company's logo present

But does the permit say 315 feet or is that just someones guess because of the balloon test?

Even though you were kidding a Mad House would still be a great addition for BGW.

There aren't too many things that can be 315 feet tall that have not already been added to its competition in Doswell. A giga coaster would tick off the Kingsmill neighbors unless they put sand in the track and supports (imagine how expensive that would be let alone the ride towering in the horizon). They already have a drop tower (BTW how has Mach Tower been running this year?) A Star Flyer would also be a great addition but I don't think the location over by Festa is the place to put it for the best views.

I poke manatees in the butt.

Question, if my cousin was unable to fit on Nitro and Mako, does he stand a chance with apollo? Also, do you think he would be able to fit on InvadR and verbolten?
