The Experience

* Arrangement: Riders are arranged 4 across, 4 per tower side for a total of capacity of 16 riders.
* Notes: Based on Intamin's Giant Drop model, their 2nd generation drop tower. Located in the middle of a lake on an island connected by a pedestrian bridge.
* Structure: Seats are blue with mauve restraints.
* Features: 4 seconds of weightlessness.

The Verdict
This ride should have been another standard Intamin Drop Tower. It is not the tallest or the fastest but we expected a quiet ride to the top and a quick drop. Instead what we found was a tower in need of some TLC along with lots of WD-40. As soon as the ride began rising up the tower we started hearing metallic scraping sounds along with lots of moaning and groaning which quickly made us a bit nervous as to the condition of the ride. In a lot of ways this made for a ride we will never forget but also hope never to repeat.
I rate it 4 Star's
