I hope it's not a Sky Rocket II clone, although I wouldn't be surprised if it is. With both Superman: UF and YOLOcoaster (the latter being only 3 hours away), it wouldn't exactly be unique to California. If they are working with 150 feet, I'd love to see some type of B&M (haven't had a new one in CA since Tatsu in 2006), but we'll see how this plays out. I guess any new coaster is great for SWSD since it is the weakest park in the chain for coasters.

I know it's not likely but could that new Mack launched looping spinning coaster be a possibility? Based on what we saw of it at IAAPA it seems like it could fit into a similar footprint as a Skyrocket II. Probably wishful thinking on my part but I'd rather
have that than another Skyrocket II.

This B&M donkey is so smooth!

Not quite sure how I feel about one of those. While different in a couple ways, it seems awfully similar to Manta. But like I said, with a park as dry as SWSD coaster-wise, anything is considered a welcome addition.

I think a spinning, inverting thrill coaster is quite a bit different from a terrain coaster all about air time. I'd love to see one of those Mack spinners, but a SkyRocket II isn't a bad option either. While they're starting to pop up frequently, they're great rides unlike a boomerang or SLC.

I highly doubt that's 150 ft.

In no way at all, aside from the track style, which is slighty different anyway

I was going along the lines that they are both multi-launch Mack coasters, but I guess you're right. It's not like the GP will tell... just look at the Cedar Fair B&M Hyper/Giga combos at Carowinds and CW.

A sky rocket 2 almost seems inevitable due to the 150 feet that's being reported. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I can't think of too many rides that are 150 feet that feature inversions that aren't B&M's and those are definitely not compact. I'm hoping I'm wrong but I guess we will have to wait and see.

There's eurofighters, freeflys, zacspins, boomerangs, and some custom B&M's and Intamin's can be made compact and at 150ft. if they request it. Or could be something completely out of the blue and brand new.
