For me, the only manufacture I can think of to make a coaster that is around 200 ft. high and feature inversions would be Intamin.

Intamin are not the only ones. Arrow did it long before they did and Dal was there on Arrow's team. Yes they are not around anymore. In today's market I think any of the design companies could realistically do it, I'd love to see S&S do it.

B&M?

Besides, Lagoon has no space for a 200' coaster. Remember it's not just height for the lift, think of all of the kinetic energy the ride would have to spill of from 200'.

Also fun fact, if Lagoon got a 200' coaster, it would be only the 49th one in the world. (Source)

I see lagoons plans! Make a new coaster, use the arch heading into to the old double thunder/Top E gift shop for a huge sign. Have a coaster that lets out in a gift shop! Genius!
#5
Do you think the new coaster will be called Top Eliminator so they don't have to change the sign (which isn't a bad name for a coaster!?) Notserious
#6
I would like to see a S & S El Loco or Air Launched Coaster. I think a Air Launced coaster could work well the theme of Racing. El loco just looks really fun, dont know how it could go with the theme of racing maybe, Dal could think of something.
If they were to go with B & M they should get a Floorless or stand-up coaster, a dive would be cool to. The only bad thing about B & M is that they all seat 4 across, Lagoon doesnt get enough people to fit that many people on in one cycle, let alone multiple cycles.
If they want to stay local maybe they could go with Vekoma and get a Flying Dutchman or LSM Launch. but, I see them going with S & S for this one.

I thought Lagoon was pretty much done with S&S after the Rocket/Re-entry fiasco... I do agree that a compact air or LIM would be neat. The reality is that Lagoon may not be ready for another coaster yet though, but wishful thinking is good.

Before this gets out of hand, I'm going to nip this whole thing in the bud. Here's what we've heard so far:

This Ride Will be Designed by Dal Freeman.

The Components Will be Contracted Out, probably to Intermountain Lift, Inc., in Springville, just like BomBora.

The Ride Will be OVER 200ft Tall, we've heard 220ft mentioned several times.

The Ride Will use a Traditional Lift Hill.

The Ride Will have Inversions.

The Ride Will be Located on the North End of the Park.

The Trains Will have Lap Bars.

The Trains May have 4 Across Seating.

It Will be Lagoon's Tallest, Fastest, and Most Expensive Ride to Date.

In other words, No Intamin, No B&M, No Vekoma, No Premier Rides, No S&S, etc.

^ That all makes me extremely excited.

That being said, I think a Maurer Sohne X-Car (extended Skyloop?) matches the description.

EDIT: DO NOT TAKE THIS AS FACT. It's simply a vague speculation, however, given some other details, it's NOT a Maurer Sohne, but as Sid pointed out, a contracted coaster, by most likely Intermountain Lift, Inc.

I'm missing the connection to this conclusion. Could you elaborate on how you deduced this please? Smile
