Screamscape MM 2013 coaster


2013 - YOLOcoaster - (8/24/12) Screamscape sources tell us that the YOLOcoaster coaster will indeed attempt to claim the record for having the tallest inversion in the world, featuring a launch up into a loop around the 160 ft range. Cedar Fair apparently got wind of things and decided to beat them to the punch by claiming that GateKeeper’s roll-over at the top of the lift at 170 feet in the air would really be the world’s tallest inversion.


Missed it by 10 feet...lol

It'd still be the world's tallest vertical loop.

Magic Mountain can also advertise having the largest inversion on a launched coaster. I don't think that they'll have any problem generating hype.

All they will have to do is market it as a world-record breaking inversion. They don't have to be specific as to what record that it's actually breaking.

A tallest inversion record, to me, is pretty much one of those near-meaningless stats that actually is not impressive. At the speed you are going through these inversions, how much of an appreciation can really have in that split second? If SFMM really does use that stat as a key part of the marketing for YOLOcoaster, I would guess that most GP will be indifferent to that message.
Imo, height, speed, and airtime records for coasters are more significant for the overall enjoyment of the ride.

Most GP don't care about stats, all they care about is if its fun and scary.

From Premier's FB:

Hey fans! Keep an eye on our page for our big announcement that you won’t want to miss. Hint: Premier Rides is California dreaming once again!


I think we can all agree this is YOLOcoaster... Unless we get a surprise from SCBB.
