The “Steel Curtain” will set three records: world’s tallest inversion at 197 feet, the most inversions in North America with nine and will be Pennsylvania’s tallest coaster at 220 feet.

The coaster will carry 24 riders per trip on the 4,000 feet long track that will last two minutes.

The top speed of the coaster will reach 75 miles per hour with a height requirement of 48 inches tall.

“The Steel Curtain” is the only coaster associated with an NFL team and is part of the bigger “Steelers Country” that is scheduled to open later this summer.
