Awesome, thanks for sharing that. Hersheypark Place was good, but it was a bit of a pain to go out and then have to go back through security and all. Would be nice not to have to do that. Although over here it'd probably have to be more than just a fence since Americans are awful and would probably try to slip contraband items across.

Oh wow. We're already playing the name game...

If it were up to me, I'd name it "This Ride Is Much Better Than Skyrush" so I can ride Skyrush more. But that's just me.

Doing some analysis of the (always 100% accurate) animation. The support structure on the lift hill looks like mega to me, giga has larger but fewer columns. Still a B&M might be good fit for the park.

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

I'm not sure where all this talk of a 300+ foot coaster has come from, wasn't that FAA waiver granted for up to 220 feet?
