Anyone heard any updates on this project? Seems strange they announced the announcement...and then nothing.

I wonder what they're waiting for. And does anyone know if its gonna open in 2014 or 2015? Cuz I thought it said 2014, but at this rate, it will probably open in 2015...

Just a thought.

But what am I supposed to do with all these plans for a Key West-themed amusement park?

While I somewhat doubt it, this could be a clue to the Florida location. Orlando is

probably the most feasible area, but South Florida has been trying to establish

amusement style attractions, and parks, for decades. Despite something

seemingly insane for the area, maybe this tallest coaster, I can't see any park or

themed ride taking off in the area.

We'll I don't really see why, or don't understand about the south Florida deal of brining attractions for which I think it would be really magnificent for Miami area, I maybe wrong, but my guess is maybe south Florida is the Everglades boundaries with many animals!

 

Just my point of view!

Maybe the marketing department will wait until construction actually starts, or when it's halfway up. I feel it's like how Lagoon's Marketing is where Air Race isn't even announced until a week before the park opens.

Pretty sure no one should have been/be holding their breath!

 

Yeah, I'm afraid this is turning out similar to the Hammerhead Stall project that was proposed for Orlando a number of years ago. Well, at least a Hammerhead Stall eventually showed up in Taiwan. Hopefully, a polercoaster will eventually get built somewhere. (I wonder if the one proposed for that Georgia sports complex is still in the works? That place sounded like an out-of-the-way location for a polercoaster, but what do I know?)

Personally, I hope this ride never gets built. This looks like the cheapest, most unoriginal way to break 500 feet. Just look at the thing. There will be no airtime and no large drop. Plus they should have sick buckets waiting at the bottom. Sorry Mr. Kitchen, you had an excellent idea with the skycoaster, but the polercoaster looks like a real clunker.

I can see this project easily falling through. Its a huge investment and would be difficult to really see the return on it. Sure you would have the tallest coaster, but Formula Rossa doesn't exactly prove that the ____-est correlates to profitable. Might be a tough sell to investors to get funding.
