So you think it didn't odd in its location at the Sahara?
Well, it looks more out of place, in the Sahara the coaster blended nicely with the Sahara and the track & support colors were chosen not only to have a racing theme but for it to have "arabic colors" to blend with the Sahara.

The only thing besides $$ that I can see logically holding them back would be the FAA red tape nightmare, but given the wheel got approval and the tallest point of the ride being about 1500k feet away from the wheel, I don't foresee any height restriction issues. However its the FAA, never know what they are going to do...
I think it would be great if they relocated it. I'm a big fan of Premier and this is definitely one of the most unique coasters out there. It'd be a plus if they gave it the new premier style trains and LSMs!

I can definitely see the logic in putting a coaster in, next to the Skyvue Wheel project. It's funny that they will have to compete against the other giant wheel project, the world's tallest wheel-the High Roller being built near Imperial Palace/Flamingo for Cesar's Linq project. As long as Skyvue holds its own, this relocation project could be a winner if built.
