My vote is also for tallest...although after talking to a few other enthusiasts I could see them going for steepest drop.

A vertical drop :mrgreen:, I mean a vertical drop would have the same amount of -G's as fluffy, fluffy bunny filled with medicine and goo hop so. I mean I dont get why vertical drop coasters have OTSR's, there are rides that have more -g's with T-Bars than a vertical drop with OTSR's.

That would be so cool, A vertical droping woody :D

That's what you think! Those "Woodies" could handle 300ft without a problem. The navigate the track so smoothly!
Now I don't like that on Woodies too much. That's also why I don't like Colossos and Balder that much. They just feel so "no Wood" to me and I basically ride them as any other steel coaster.
OF COURSE that does NOT make them bad! And OF COURSE that doesn't mean they are not Woodies! That's just my opinion...

The "record" will be height and speed. I'd bet a $100 on that!

I think the record has to do with drop. Either steepest or tallest. It may not break the height record but could still break the drop record with a tunnel or trench of sorts. Intamin would be the ones to push a coaster like that... and at least we shouldn't have to worry about the coaster being as rough as SOB if they did!

Well after Balder and Colussos, I dont think it will be rough.

BTW, new Intamin Woodies dont use steel wheels right?

They already have a spine breaking wood coaster with Rolling Dumpster, so why not build a record breaker? ;)

RT has actually been running better this season. Over the past two years they've re-tracked a lot of it, and it rides much better (especially the inside track).

No dice, Great Adventure's water table is extremely high. This is why S:UF didn't get a tunnel when it was built. Record breaking drop will only come as a consequence of record breaking height. I'm still putting my money on steepest drop as one of the record breakers.
