Gaint drop idea in my head


Recommended Posts

Interesting idea, but why not go the full mile and make it a tilting standup gondola? My thought has always been to take off both gondolas, maybe add a third set of rails (if it is needed for structural reasons) and instead of two gondolas, have one single gondola, similar to one of the Gyro Drops, wrapping 3/4 of the way around the tower. It'd be a dream for capacity - even Dreamworld wouldn't be able to screw that one up too badly.

Tilting would even be better. That 3/4 gondola sound good. or have 3 seprate one with a sit down, standup/tilting and a floorless one or something like that.

the 3/4 idea is a good one, but the seats would need to be out on those "spokes" (like on the 54 rider model) so more seats would fit in, because if the seats just wrapped around the tower close in the circumfrence would not allow enough seats to fit in. Another GD idea is a wind generator on top, one decent wind generator can power a small town, so therefore it could power most of DW.
