B&M gigga would be interesting.

If it does end up being a giga, it would be quite a bit taller then B&M's previous tallest coaster. Strange for them to make such a leap forward, though I guess for the right amount of money anything's possible.

Intamin and Morgan made similar leaps with Millennium Force and Steel Dragon.

I personally don't think it will be a giga coaster from B&M because they already have a Hyper coaster from B&M!!! I was thinking a flyer or Wing-rider...I could be wrong though.

I think they realize they were becoming "dated" and decided to adjust to the changing of the times. More GP folks are becoming more aware of what theme parks are doing with facebook and know what the offerings are . I personally like the evolution of coasters. From intamins new track design to vekomas new launched lift to the wingwalker design.

I could swear that at one point B&M said they'd never go as high as 300 feet... Of course, after almost every "Die Hard" movie, Bruce Willis said he'd "never" make another Die Hard movie... so whatever. ;)

^I also remember this, but who knows, maybe the new train design allows for them to more comfortably hit that 300+ mark. People change their minds every day and this may just be an example of this.

I always thought the sheer bulkiness of the trains and track prevented much more height out of a B&M. There has to be a lot of weight/forces just looking at their overall structural designs. I could be wrong and somebody feel free to correct me if they know otherwise but if they were to go to 300+ feet something might have to change to support that weight.

Either a wing rider, or a really big dive coaster. That's my guess.
