When I heard that Pitbull is showing support for Skyplex I was surprised since he performs at Universal quite often. That may put him in a position to not get invited back. I'm sure he's unbothered seeing as he is the official tourism ambassador of Florida now. http://www.miaminewtimes.com/news/pitbull-is-now-floridas-official-tourism-ambassador-7867177

So he's and assh0le because his opinion isn't what you want it to be? Now, all of a sudden should be replaced? Over one opinion? Geesh!!! Talk about over reacting lol.
^ naw... he's an ahole because he should be representing the ENTIRE industry... (read the article)... not representing Universal. That's like saying it is OK for the head of FIFA to publicly favors one country over another.

The Orlando Coaster will be revealed sometime next week (or later this week). This was just a concept. The Orlando one will be the tallest one for this company. Their 'flagship' for lack of better term. This one will be (I think) between 650'-700' tall. I'm not sure if that's also including the spire at the top, or if that is just for the track height.
Skyplex vote comes up tommorow...

The Orange County Commission will vote Tuesday afternoon on whether to approve the Skyplex development.

"Orange County Commissioner Victoria Siplin, whose district covers Skyplex, told the Orlando Sentinel she has received 1,690 emails and phone calls in favor of the project and 96 against."

EDIT: Here's the land in question:
