the prize for the least subtle attempt to rip off a Disney ride goes
too...... It's a free fall style ride that plays the Twilight Zone
theme tune in the queue, rather like a certain Disney ride. Unlike
the Disney ride though there are no dark ride elements. It's an all
out thrill ride providing a nightmare at approximately 130 feet.
The ride itself is of some note. It's a now rare example of the
precursor to the many tower rides found around the world today.
Instead of running up and down a strait tower you go up the inside
of the tower, before being transferred to the outside part. From
there you drop vertically down, before you run down a track that
levels you out. This sees you travelling along the
lying on your back, facing up at the sky. You then hit the brakes
and are transferred back down to the station below the track.
Overall it's a pretty good thrill ride, providing a good intense
drop from the top of the tower. It stands out in a good way from
other drop tower rides. Not enough to make it a must do if you've
tried one of the many future generation towers, but it's still worth
a few goes unless the queue gets really bad.
