I'm still laughing that they felt the need to include the random guys carrying skateboards into Six Flags Great Adventure. Why did they feel the need to include this? You can't skateboard inside Great Adventure, and with its location in the middle of nowhere New Jersey you can't exactly skateboard to the park either. What's next, visiting SFOG with some golf clubs, a golf cart, and a caddy? Oh Hollywood!

No, when an episode is named "World's Fastest Coaster" or "World's Steepest Coaster", it doesn't mean all the coasters are fast or steep, just that one episode in the episode is one of those. Like when Formula Rossa was in the first episode, none of the other coasters were really that fast.

121 degree drop! At what point does these ultra steep drops just become and inversion? I would think 121 would be about the limit, from just my little experience with 95 and 97 drops they might start getting a little painful slamming into the shoulder harness going so much steeper?
^Harness design and trim brakes can curb some of the pain of slamming into the restraints. My personal opinion is that building a roller coaster with a drop steeper than Takabisha is kind-of entering "Gimmicky" territory and will probably not add that much more to a ride. I could be wrong though.
The height & speed coaster wars are at a cease fire right now, so most inversions and steepest drop are the new battlefronts I suppose.
