Is this the first time we see this used on a drop tower? I cannot recall having seen it elsewhere...

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

Also interesting to see it being installed before the tower is even topped off.

The only other use of chain lifts on a drop tower I've seen is Mystika at Rainbow magicland as visible in this video, and Venom at west midland safari park

But that's about it.

Overall height of the tower is now reported to be 76 meters without the sun, so the drop height should be somewhere around a few meters below that.

All the larger SBF towers use them and also a few from Fabbri. Probably some more.
