After seeing the new Twisted Colossus roller coaster at Magic Mountain, I got ticked about the limits SFOG has due to FAA regulations from the near airport. Why can't we get something approved from them(FAA) to allow SFOG get a bigger/higher ride? Make regulations so that planes can only enter and exit a certain air space. It's done in Tampa due to residential areas! SFOG can never get rid of the chains holding them back to bring a Mega Coaster! Hope every is having a good day none the less!

I doubt it will ever happen. The issue is when a plane is in trouble. An aircraft could lose a engine and not be able to climb. The biggest issue is the main runway basically points towards Six Flags. Planes might have to make an emergency turn on approach or takeoff.

Personally, I will take the record for the longest coaster. Start by the Ninja (Or replace it) and run along the Chattahoochee River and I-20 and back. It would probably have to be a launch as I not sure you would get enough speed with the height restriction.

In reality, we could have the tallest wooden coaster.
