Planning & Zonal Board Votes Against SkyPlex

Hey Thrill Seekers,

Its almost a year since we first started talking about SkyPlex and its plans to build the Worlds Tallest Roller Coaster.  The complex which is looking to build on I-Drive and Sand Lake Road came up against its first real opposition yesterday when it lost a Planning & Zonal vote by 4-3.

The SkyPlex project came up against opposition from local residence and Comcast, owners of Universal Resort Orlando who cited the height of the coaster as the main issue. Although it appears the residence and Comcast are happy for the project to go forward in principle they feel the height of SkyScraper needs to fit in with the local community, to prevent impacting the life of neighbourhoods in a negative way.


Managing principal for the SkyPlex Project, Joshua Wallack can out fighting as you’d expect and stated to the Orlando Sentinel;

We will not be bullied by Universal Studios; we will not be bullied by Comcast. We will not be pushed around. They will not win. We will win.

It’s simply because they don’t want us to have the world’s tallest roller coaster which will draw people to it.

Comcast weren’t the only people though to object to the proposal, local residence had written a letter objecting to the project and A city of Orlando official also weighed in, urging caution.

Although the SkyPlex has lost this initial vote the full proposal will still go to the county commissioners who will have final approval.
