    It was rumored to be but isn’t actually. Zadra is only 200.1 ft tall, making Gwazi the tallest hybrid in the world unless something shocking happens in the next month of announcements.

    *crosses fingers for Great Adventure announcement*

    (No, I don't think whatever happens at Great Adventure will be that big, but I'm hoping it is)

    zadra isnt 200.1ft tall. rcdb put 200.1 because all we know is its over 200ft, so the .1 is just a placeholder

    Zadra is 209ft tall according to Energylandia. They list 63.8m height and 121 km/h or 75 mph. So it's the tallest at least for now.

    Zadra is 63.8m (209 ft). Pretty sure Gwazi won't be beating it.

    But won't that include the handrails on the stairs and lights? Track could be a few feet lower.

    I have a sneaky feeling that they’ll announce it’s a world record breaker here in a few weeks

    Track color doesn’t seem as loud now that it’s sitting on the structure. Much more complimentary than I envisioned

    Bold prediction/wishful thinking, maybe we’ll get a sort of stall on the lion lift, a wide cutback if you will.

    Zadra is also listed as being 61m (200.131 feet) in height according to the park's website on the very same page. It has both heights listed (the other being 63.8m). So which is it? Every news source I see pop up from Europe announcing it's opening, also state the 61m height. (Zadra - ENERGYLANDIA - Rodzinny Park Rozrywki w Zatorze).

    It looks more like an overbank from the animation but it would be nice to see!
