What Kind Of Rider Should Islands Of Adventure Get Next?

I personally think B&M should add another great coaster to the park: a flying coaster. I don't think that will happen though because Alton Towers currently has the rights to the B&M flying coaster model until 2004. By then, I think there'll be a few more popping up. Anyway, The Incredible Hulk and Dueling Dragons rock! Universal's Islands of Adventure is one of the best theme parks out there!

A hyper isn't possible, as coasters in Florida can't be 200 feet tall I believe :-(
B&M isn't either, but they need a good woodie or Jeep ride would be cool

Magnum will always rule!

I think they should get a ride like spiderman for JP, or a flying but it would be hard to gett it fit in and not destroy the theming.

Actually, 200 ft IS the height limit, so they could build a coaster exactly to 200 ft, or even to 195 or so, with a 20 ft tunnel it would be just as good as a normal hyper, even if maybe it wasn't officially a hyper to us enthusiasts... The GP wouldn't know the difference of 5-10 ft. And you know if IOA did, you know that they would do it right.

They could just build a ride 190 feet tall, and dig a small 10 foot trench. Also, the height limit for Orlando is 200, it isn't as great in the rest of Florida.

i think they should add a wooden coaster to give the park more of a variety

A jeep ride would be amazing...so would a flying coaster, but I think the jeep ride would fit better, and if it could be at the same level as Spiderman (almost as good) it would be just perfect

I think every park needs at least one good woodie! Its almost like saying every playground should have swings.

IOA already has 2(or 3 depending on how you look at it) great coasters and could add to the variety with a 195 foot tall coaster and a 10-15 foot deep tunnel.

No park is complete without a good woodie!

A B&M Flyer

I would say a wooden coaster would help the park a lot, at least to us enthusiasts. The GP, though, probably wouldn't consider a wooden coaster that amazing as Dueling Dragons or Hulk, so it's more likely IMO that they would add a B&M Flyer or some other kind of coaster.

Plus, doesn't IOA have this claim about being the most technologically advanced park, or something along those lines? Well, if they added a wooden coaster, I would expect it to be very different from most woodies.

I think it would be cool if IoA did a combination of two ideas there. They could have a Jeep ride that started off as a tour, but then you get chased by dinosaurs. Then you could get off the Jeep ride to "hide" from the dino's, and in the process board a coaster (the entrance to the coaster would be hidden from the regular JP paths) that could be themed to a plane ride to take you off the island. Then when the coaster ended it could crash land (drop you off back at the regular JP paths again). Then the empty coaster train would depart back for the "take off" station.

Do they have a suspended or stand up? If not, then that is my choice.

A flying coaster just fits the park.
