About


The Eastern side originally had a "pre-drop", where riders would be dropped a few metres before slowing by use of the ride's failsafe magnetic brakes only to be dropped the full distance moments later. This ride programme was discontinued by way of adjusting the braking fins on the tower to make them no longer functioning.
Shares the "Dreamworld Tower" with Tower of Terror. Tallest non-coaster ride in the world; overall second tallest ride in the world.
