Premier is definitely capable of airtime - Orlando's Revenge of the Mummy has two good pops, one straight after the launch. So I wouldn't count them out as far as airtime is concerned!

I would, however, prefer an Intamin - more comfortable seats and if we're mixing something like Maverick and Cheetah Hunt together, I know they'll do it great!

I think Goliath was my first hypercoaster (back in '08). Either Goliath or Wild Thing, pretty sure it was Goliath though. :lol:

It's most likely going to be an Intamin which I'm always "OK" with but I'm not exactly opposed to a Premier creation. ;)

Hey....we could ALL be wrong....BRC Imagination Arts, from Southern California, is planning/designing the tallest, "Zero-Gravity" rollercoaster...could it be for a US park?

^We've had two threads on this.

No.

$50 million dollars and technology that, no matter what they say about their timeline of building the ride, isn't going to function reliably for a long, long time. Not to mention the fact that Magic Mountain already has that same exact ride, minus the unreliable technology and the closed spaces to simulate zero-gravity, that offers almost that same amount of airtime already.

The consensus seems to be that this will be Intamin or Premier, and will be pretty impressive. I can't wait!

^ The "consensus" is based off rumors and nothing else, though.
