.I do remember seeing a claim on BPB's website saying that Big One had a top speed of 87mph.
What about the claim that Desperado opened as the World's tallest Coaster (Even though PMBO opened beforehand and is 5 ft taller)?
I remember this one in the Guinness book of records at the time. Desperado has a longer drop thanks to the tunnel although the structure of the big one is taller. There was a very nice little diagram of this in the book. Both were included in the book for that reason.
There's an age old argument there in itself. There are several rides that have either a 200ft drop or 200ft height but not both... But that's for another topic I guess.
