A "roller coaster" will open in 2017 in Orlando, Florida called "Skyscraper". The roller coaster is attached to a large building over 400 ft. tall. Quite possibly taller than Kingda Ka, the world's tallest coaster standing at 456 ft.
Most roller coaster fans refuse to accept "Skyscraper" as an official roller coaster since it's wrapped around a tower and not secured with actual supports on the ground.
If "Skyscraper" doesn't count as an official coaster, Kingda Ka will keep its record for a long while before another park takes a stab at it. Personally, I believe a park in England, excluding Alton Towers due to the height restriction on it, will have a shot at the record. Stealth opened in Thorpe Park in 2006. That one is a hydraulic launched hyper coaster. Was this ride a test for another hydraulic launched coaster to open in the park in a coming season?
The question remains unanswered. And Kingda Ka may keep its record until the day it closes.
