But there are no legalities to classifying coasters with made up marketing terms so people can call a 299 foot coaster a Giga, and a 199 foot tall coaster a Hyper if they want to. Not really a big deal.

^True. It's more or less something the coaster communities/parks/ride manufacturers have made up that stuck. Sure there's no law per say, but it's just kind of been around since, well I guess XL-200 would've started off the "hyper/mega" craze.

Regardless if you dub it the worlds first "Super Amazing Fun Time" coaster, it still looks like it will be an amazing ride.

Me too! Why are there so many cars in the lot? Is a car manufacturer using CW's lot as storage? They all look the same

Don't let this donkey melt you with its laser eyes!

^Every year the parking lot is used as storage.

Yes, they use the lot as vehicle storage each off-season. I believe the north lot is currently full of brand new Cadillac CTS's.

Oh, and I can NOT WAIT to be plunging down this drop!
