100 Meters = 328.08399 Feet

No. Thank you. That's way to tall for me on a drop tower.
Bigger is not always better.

This ride is going to be huge. Makes me question the use of the word "petit" in its name lol. I wonder how this will compare to a big Intamin gyrodrop.
Is this a trick question?

If I had to guess I'd guess that it is going to provide a much stronger "freefall" feeling. Similar to the ARM towers.

Because that one refers to the small zierer tower?

I originally thought the same thing, but apparently the Funtime towers are actually stinky poo-poo, thanks to a hold at the top, brakes that start pretty far up the tower, and the bulky Gerstlauer shoulder harnesses.

EDIT: Here's an example of the one that's at Wien Prater (is it still there, anyone?). There's an earlier example floating around the funfair circuit, it drops and stops the same way but doesn't have the rotating seats.


EDIT AGAIN: Am I crazy, or are there two towers named "Mega King Tower"?

Who said they can't improve their product a bit? ;)

Being held at the top for so long makes it more intense IMO...
