I'm still going with a double drop like Lightning Rod had before they tore it down.

A double drop would be cool, but it doesn't look like there's enough space to do both that and increase the height to 200+ feet.

I'm a know-it-all about donkeys!

There is another poster with a different picture and that makes me wonder if maybe They're coming has to do with the trains and each poster belongs to a train and it's name, especially since all of Maverick's trains are named and they're right next to each other. Just a thought.
Top 5 Steel: Steel Vengance, Maverick, Millenium Force, Kraken, Montu
Top 5 Wood: Shivering Timbers, Blue Streak, Zach's Zoomer, Mean Streak, Wolverine Wildcat
Mean Streak: Never Forget - But Steel Vengeance might've stolen my heart.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

This lift is getting HUGE. It looks like the ledgers now exceed the old structure height!

AWESOME photo! And it's gonna have to exceed the old structure height considering it's pretty obvious the ride is going to have a vertical drop. If you can kind of imagine the height this ride is going to achieve, it is going to be FLYING through the circuit. I think this will be the TALLEST wooden structure coaster, with the FIRST vertical drop ever. I'm sure CP will throw a bunch of other records in there, but this is going to be the reason I'm visiting Cedar Point next season.

I think that's pretty likely here. Either way it's a win-win. Either it had a double drop which should make for an ungodly amount of airtime or it won't which will make for a ridiculous drop height (and probably still tons of airtime).

Don't put that donkey on the floor!
