    This is the part that gets me.

    Launch Speed: Approximately 0 – 72 mph in 2 seconds
    Drop Speed: Approximately 75 mph

    Not bad, but not as fast as the one at Cedar Point. Looks like yours will have a longer ride though.

    "Reaching a stratospheric 420 feet tall and topping out at an unheard of speed of 120 mph, this new steel screamer helped Cedar Point reclaim the title of owning the tallest and fastest roller coaster in the universe. "
    "Approximately 0 to 120 mph in four seconds" :D

    Do they have rockets on it to get it to 120 MPH? Hope they have a good harness system at that speed to keep you from popping out.

    The new coaster will be a worlds first.

    "Rocket Coaster with Inversions (World’s First!)" from their site.

    Not sure what that means.

    "Rocket Coaster with Inversions (World’s First!)" from their site. Do you mean the Hershey site? It means that it will be the first coaster of that type to go upside down. Other metal coasters have been doing that for years (check out the hulk at Universal Studios. Only a few wooden coasters go upside down now. The magnetic brakes on these new coasters are really smooth. No more being slammed back and forth in your seats.

    "Hope they have a good harness system at that speed to keep you from popping out." Since you don't go upsidedown (just straight up and straight down) you don't need the over the shoulder harness, Just a small pad that they cram into your stomach and a seat belt (just in case). Tiered seating on the coaster’s cars for better viewing (similar to stadium seating)
    270-degree spiral on descent

    The pully/Hydraulic launch system is interesting to watch in action

    Understood, but from what I have been reading so far, it is the worlds first hydraulic launch system that has inversions. This coaster will go into a loop plus a spiral.
