Coaster Terms for Height Barriers

There are certain terms when a coaster reaches a certain height barrier!

When any coaster reaches 200-feet, it is considered a Hyper coaster! The first coaster to break this height barrier is the Magnum XL-200 at Cedar Point!

When any coaster reaches 300-feet, it is considered a Giga coaster! The first coaster to break this is Millennium Force at Cedar Point!

When any coaster reaches 400-feet, it is considered a Strata coaster! Top Thrill Dragster was the first Strata coaster built which is located at Cedar Point!

When any coaster reaches 500-feet, it is considered a Polar coaster as this is the only type of 500-foot roller coaster being built at this height! One is being built and is scheduled to open in 2019 which will be the tallest roller coaster ever at 570 feet tall! I expect a name to come up soon but as of now, there is no name other than a Polar coaster as it is the only type of 500-foot coaster!
