I'm not a big coaster fan so I haven't heard anything about it yet.
I did find some video here though

And THAT is something I will never do. Might take the elevator up to the observation tower, though.

Anyone know where this is going to be built?

I heard they plan to build it on I-drive but I was not really paying attention.

Here's an article about it:

Sounds interesting. I was on the one that used to be on the top of the Stratosphere tower in Las Vegas. Other than being over 1,000 ft. in the air and hanging over the edge of the building, it was kind of boring. It just went around the building twice with a few very small hills. This one sound more exciting. I might be tempted to try it.

I wouldn't ride it either. I am getting to the point in my life where heights are really too scary for me.

Coasters are not my kind of ride but I have to say, it is mindblowing how coasters have evolved and are doing things that many would have thought were impossible ten years ago. I mean, who would've thought by now, we would have coasters with a 90 degree drop or steeper, a wooden coaster with inversions (Though it's steel track with wooden frame and supports for the most part.), a wing coaster where riders sit next to the track rather than over it. Flash forward to 2014, those coasters do exist! Now we have a coaster that'll stand 500 feet above the ground with inversions. Makes me wonder what will come next for coasters in years to come.
