ZeroGravity55 Posted March 5, 2016 Share Posted March 5, 2016 When HW was looking for a big steel coaster, they identified the wing coaster as the type that appealed to families the most, which is why they went with it. I highly suspect that SDC will work with B&M to push the height requirement to 50 inches like Wild Eagle so it can be ridden by more youngsters if in fact it is a wing coaster. Still not good enough, methinks. If they're looking for a true family coaster they need something like Firechaser Express. Having a lower height restriction isn't what makes a coaster a family coaster - it has to be more approachable than a big, bad B&M. I don't think they're looking for a family coaster. What I was referring to with HW was that they were in the market for a big, bad steel coaster, and they found that the wing coaster was more appealing to families (which is their market) than the other big, bad steel coasters. I think it is the same with SDC. SDC is looking (maybe found?) for something that has a huge drawing power, but something that can still appeal to families at the same time.
