Yeah, 412 is the main Pittsburgh area code, & it's become a pretty common hashtag and merchandise logo for the city. Unless the park has some serious area code gimmick up its sleeve with this new attraction, I'd read more into the upcoming teasers and less into the idea that "412" has deep coaster lore meaning.

And I will add that this is exciting news! I'll probably find myself playing along, and we can already see that the project is anticipation-worthy. I'm looking forward to the hype and clues.

Maybe the project is themed to something in Pittsburgh lore?

Guessing it might be a black and yellow coaster? :lmao:
In my opinion El Toro and Intimidator 305 ride fairly and are free of material roughness.

412 ft tall dive machine named My bottom lip is oddly disproportionate to my upper lip and I'm not sure why stolen from Canada's Wonderland.

This is so I can post online and impress other people who are very good at procuring unfamiliar children in order to go on rides designed for children, and thus have a higher arbitrary number than me."

I think you are close. Rumor I've heard is that it's going to be an 87 foot tall dive coaster that's themed after Sidney Crosby.

That will start a list of roller coasters I have no interest in riding out of straight principal (Go Caps).

Sounds like it'll be a generational coaster and one of the best of all time!
