Six Flags Great Adventure's rocket coaster's track has arrived:

from the look of the track, the coaster at SFGA, it looks like a relatively small coaster

Thats just the station and transfer track. it's confirmed to be a rocket coaster, possibly as tall or taller than Top Thrill Dragster.

The supports that are on site are as big as Dragsters, indicating a very tall ride

the supports in this picture of TTD (http://www.rcdb.com/installationgallery ... ?Picture=7) would fit around these (http://www.rcdb.com/installationgallery ... ?Picture=8) but its just my best guess ;) Is there any official press releases about it that you know of?

The reason for the supports being bigger may be storng winds or something else. This dosen't have to be higher thatn Dragster, and since it is actually shorter my guess would be a coaster like Xcelerator or Storm Runner. It can be higher than TTD, but I doubt it and I hope it isn't. We don't need a Dragster clone.

I don't think it's going to be taller than dragster, but maybe somethin in the 300ft range?
Six Flags stated the press release would appear "soon"...

We already have a Dragster, I would much rather see a smaller tighter layout than a dragster clone..

I'mn guessing it will be a combination of TTD and Xcelerator, very tall with a layout simsilar to xcelerator.
