Maybe that with that height it could be for the Star Flyer/Windseeker they are trying to build (we think,) that got declined. Maybe they made “changes” for it to be accepted this time?

This is actually really old news now. There's updated info released by the same site that leaked that info, and it's all very legit, and very clearly for a roller coaster. It's possible that the 355 foot height waiver won't be the full and total height of the coaster, but it also seems very likely the highest part of the coaster will be close to that height, and has been described as "looking like a knife blade" from the closest nearby community. In other words, it's very possible it's just a top hat element like Red Force, but with more to it than that, and TTD and KK have.

Personally, I'm hoping for the tallest traditional lift hill giga, but honestly, suspect that's not what it'll end up being. Either way, it's going to be an awesome addition, and yes, SEAS parks are absolutely KILLING it right now!

Yes, everybody settle down, please. The height waiver has been knocking around for a while and is a matter of public record. The link posted earlier is from a local e-newspaper reporting on the rumor, so we're allowing it.

Everyone knows that I'm skeptical of everything and always try to bring people down to earth but the track record of this source is impossible to ignore. It's pretty exciting stuff...

Literally any ride that requires a 355 foot height waver sounds fun to me!

Speaking of next year’s coaster, Pantheon has gone vertical! Or at least horizontal!

Ooooh yay. Thanks for the update, Chuck.

I still can't believe this park is getting a big giant badass Intamin multi-launcher. :lover:

Did the donkey fairy give me this title?

I should be headed to the park Thursday 24 and Friday 25, with Haunt happening what are the chances of having a decent first visit.

Any advice appreciated.
