on our one trip there, we loved the landscaping, the shows, and thought the rides were great, with a good mix of thrill and family (helped along by Invadr).
could there be a few more flats? sure, but it didn't feel like anything was missing.
ETA: no children in our household, so we don't notice things like height restrictions. . tho since you're talking about a big coaster or "intense" flat, that might not be what you were meaning?
BGW is certainly the kind of park that can take more time between major additions (especially if the beer samples in Tampa are successful and they bring it here). It's just that KD has added Dominator, I305, and Twisted Timbers since BGW added Griffon, their last major ride that is indisputably thrill.

I'd be all for that, if they can guarantee a minimum <=42" and the 315-foot attraction remains a coaster.
Would hate to see them build another expensive and only moderately intense ride with a higher minimum height as the 90-foot, and be forced to scrap the plans or cheap out on the 315-foot.
Top steel: Millennium Force / Steel Vengeance / Intimidator 305 / Maverick / Fury 325 Top wood: El Toro / Phoenix / GhostRider / Renegade / Flying Turns
I'm just looking at the timeline here. The permits to build are only good for so long. They have to start building soon. I'm guessing 90 foot attraction for 2019? 315 foot attraction for 2020? And possibly Sesame Place for 2021? And I'm assuming one of those has to be a coaster. BGW definitely has some interesting things going on.
