Has the official height of the coaster been announced?

I would guess if the FAA approved a height of 706', then that would include the entire building and everything above it. Doesn't make sense for them to approve a height of a building, that then goes higher than what was approved.

Anyone take a guess on the price of a ride on the coaster and drop? I'm sure they could fetch at least $20 a pop... I'd think. Big and interesting project! Can't wait to ride them.

If I'm not mistaken, that's the new drop tower going alongside the Orlando StarFlyer, right?

EDIT: No it isn't. Then I wonder what the new drop tower will be called (it itself a Funtime "Skyfall" tower)?

^According to this article, that one will be called Orlando Gyro Drop Tower, but that could just be a placeholder name for now. I mean, it goes with Orlando Starflyer sitting nearby.
