I don't know BGE but wouldn't a 260 feet castle look a bit too dominating and odd?
Still, if they can pull something along the lines of Mystery Castle, they'll have a winner. I absolutely LOVE that ride and the fact that it's indoors makes the drop seem larger than it actually is. Plus the capacity would be on pair with the other major rides at the park. Makes sense to me.

Remember that the Tower of Terror building at WDW is actually 199 feet tall, so realistically another 60 feet is not *that* much bigger.

All I want is a chainlift!

That building has been a waste of space since they removed Questor....Bring that back and I will give it some love.

I am not that excited about a drop tower though.
I would rather have an S&S space shot, the mid-atlantic really needs one, but since they said single tower that would probably mean a gyro drop.

Der Fallinfast is a great name for a drop tower, theme it after the 1980's movie The Keep

Who said it wasn't gonna be an S&S Space Shot? Power Tower is 240 feet so a slightly taller Space Shot shouldn't be ruled out at this point.

The plans just say that Busch is filing a permit for a large single tower. It can mean just about anything at this point since whatever's stated in the permit is very vague. It could even be a large observation tower for all we know.

^ Absolutely.

Lets not rule the observation tower out!

Especially in that historic Area, it would be a grand place to put one.

But Im hoping its a drop tower!

Just Kidding!

Wow this is pretty exciting news. A drop tower would go nicely at BGE. I can't wait to learn more details about this project and see what happens.

If it's an Intamin I could see them build something like this since they also don't have an observation Tower or a big ferris wheel.
