This isn't sufficient?


There's also Giant Wheel.

I only rode it once and the a/c was off. I was sweating the whole ride. Just ride TTD, the tallest view tower in the park.

Thanks for the new photos, all the new coasters this year look photogenic. It's going to be a great coaster season.

Still wondering about the "Keyhole" gaps. It's like Gatekeeper is flying through a Debit card reader more than a Keyhole. I guess I'll eventually get used to it.

My favorite roller coaster is dumb.

You never know, we may see another type of observation tower closer to the back of the park. With Windseeker and the wheel up front, Power Tower in the Middle, I could see another type of tall "family" style ride in the back... Maybe one of those "double use" towers we saw at IAAPA with an oberservation tower top and a roller coaster inside :b

I wouldn't mind if an observation tower of some sort was installed again, but with newer features. I don't know if they would though, because of Space Spiral's low ridership and I thought I heard that Windseeker was a suitable replacement, even though no cameras are permitted on it.

Also why they didn't do anything to Space Spiral besides blow it up, is because the foundation goes ridiculously deep and the age of it. Was impractical to do anything besides what happened to it. It'll forever be there in a sense cause of the foundation. They only scraped about 6ft off of it when they were prepping it for Gatekeeper, but a majority of it is still in the ground.

Intamin is still making them though, with the new 500ft tall one being installed at the Texas State Fair. Tallest ride again in the park is an observation tower, anyone? ;)
The man may keep me down but opinions are my own.

I'm a know-it-all about donkeys!

That would be nice, If the towers tall enough they could also take back, the tallest coaster record

Does it really matter if there are gaps or not?
