Hansa park builds drop tower of 120 meters (395 ft) tallA theme park in Germany will open next year a record-breaking attraction. Hansa-Park opens in 2019 a drop tower of 120 meters (395 ft) high, the highest in Europe and second tallest in the world. The sensational drop tower will be called Highlander. That's what the park announced tonight.
Daredevils are first slowly lifted to the top. The seats then tip over for 30 degrees and will drop passengers at 120 kilometers per hour (75 mph). Highlander will be manufactured by the Swiss company Intamin. IMAscore provides the soundtrack.
The opening will take place in the course of 2019. Hansa Park is developing a British themed area especially for the new attraction. The tower is higher than the highest roller coaster in Europe. That is Red Force in the Spanish theme park Ferrari Land, with a height of 112 meters. There is only one drop tower in the world that is higher than the new drop tower of Hansa-Park. That is the 126 meters high Zumanjaro: Drop or Doom at Six Flags Great Adventure.
The new free-fall tower will be located where the Nessie Superrollercoaster’s lighthouse stand. It is the park’s oldest roller coaster. For the occasion, the latter will be repainted. And will receive a new theme in agreement with Highlander's theme.Source
