Could it be possible for it to break SV's records?

I think it's certainly possible, however I wouldn't be surprised if Cedar Fair has a contract with RMC that says that some of SV's record aren't allowed to be broken for a certain amount of time. We'll just have to wait and see.

I have absolutely no idea what to expect from this thing. The idea this ride is being RMCed is bewildering still. I would have never seen Japan as getting an RMC anytime soon, and thisride’s structure is just so drawn out that it’s hard to imagine whatwill become of it.

I didnt know they were already working on it. I suppose this time there aren't any infamous RMC trucks rolling around, only RMC workers and rented equipment.

I'm guessing it'll be called hakugei and it won't break records or be as twisted as some other RMC's, but it will be a massive improvement on the worst roller coaster I ever rode.

Oh, for goodness sake. Do you honestly think that the majority of people in Japan of all places care about Steel Vengeance's silly "records"?

Having Steel Dragon 2000 in the park is enough to draw people in anyway.

And a 1st generation freefall for the hardcore Intamin lover. I never seem to fit this park in my itinerary but it's definitely got to be fone on my next Japan visit.

Glad to see this project is progressing! :b Looks like they took quite a bite out of that helix. I wonder if they're removing it from the layout, if it'll just be low-to-the-ground, or if the wood needed replacing for whatever reason. Can't wait for RMC track to show up!
