Intamin

A strata roller coaster is any complete-circuit roller coaster with a height between 400 and 499 feet. Only two strata coasters have been built worldwide. The first was Top Thrill Dragster at Cedar Point, and second was Kingda Ka at Six Flags Great Adventure. Tower of Terror II at Dreamworld, and Superman: The Escape at Six Flags Magic Mountain, were the first roller coasters to break the 400-foot barrier, but are not considered strata coasters, since they are shuttle roller coasters.
