Best Drop Ride!!!


Recommended Posts

I miss the Pitt Fall at Kennywood; a no-frills, 251' Intamin 2nd generation. I know it had maintenance issues and low ridership, but it was a blast. I recall enjoying it more than some of the larger S&S towers, as well as the bigger Drop Zone towers at KI & KD.

 

As a big Intamin drop tower fan, Blue Fall is certainly on my bucket list!

I really want to ride Falcon's Fury, Acrophobia, Blue Fall and Mega Drop on top of Canton Tower in Guangzhou!

I rode the drop ride on top of the Canton Tower last month and it is pretty incredible because of how high up you are.They claim it to be the highest drop ride in the world. At the top it even tilts outward a little bit, definitely recommend!

I guess Lex Luthor at SFMM. It was big, fast and the feeling of a distant rumbling, then something loud woosh! by and the tower starts swaying 400 feet up...was one surreal feeling.

^ I will second that, to my love of Blue Fall in Japan.

 

(If this v is the Lex Luthor Drop you meant?)

Mystery castle was super well themed, and a great drop to it, as well as scaring the poo out of me the way it launches (although not the drop tower, very good). The best Drop though is going to Hangover, so intense, and the harnesses are perfectly terrifying.

My top 10 tower drop towers:

 

1. Hangover (Travel)

2. Apocalypse standing (Gb)

3. Giant Drop (Au)

4. Detonator (Gb)

5. Anubis (Ger)

6. Apocalypse sit down (Gb)

7. Höjdskräcken (Swe)

8. Atmosfear (Swe)

9. Power Tower (Travel)

10. Drop Dead: Hangman (Gb)

I may be in the minority but honestly, short drops are the ones that absolutely wow me. My favourite is Jolly Roger at Pleasurewood Hills in Norfolk. The drop on that thing is insane, hits 5.5G according to the park's website and drops 60 metres in 0.8 seconds supposedly. I don't believe that for a second but its still incredible. In second place I have got Detanator at Thorpe Park which is basically a shorter version of Jolly Roger then after that i'd put Apocalypse, hangover, power tower 2, hurakan condor and all the boring S&S towers (well the uk's are boring at least!)

Bold = new in the last year. Reminder, I was terrified of and avoided all drop rides until 2014 when Zum opened, so other than Atmosfear (and Stuntmans Freefall), I've ridden all of these in the past 4 seasons. And yes after riding Zum again two weeks ago, it confirmed it's still the best.
