I don't really see why BGW would build a 260 ft drop tower when there is a 315 ft drop tower an hour down the road. I know about competition but why 260 feet? For some reason I don't see a Busch park adding something like this. To me it doesn't really fit their resume.

I've gone pantless!

Like Robb said earlier, I'd be surprised, too, if this were some standard, off-the-shelf ride like Drop Tower Scream Zone. I'm curious to see what the actual plans are.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

Knowing BGE, I'm sure the ride is going to drop 260ft. under ground or something. :lmao:

I wish they would make Street Fighter Donkey.

^^ I Agree. If this ride is just a standard, up and drop tower from Intamin I will certainly be surprise. I really think this will be more along the lines of Mystery Castle as so to appease the Kingsmil resident that hate the tall, noisy coasters in their backyards. If it was a Mystery Castle style drop, it would have many thing that Busch Gardens is looking for: Theming, Theming Theming! And some noise reduction. The Mystery Castle video on YouTube has really got me on the Mystery Caslte idea... Though a new contraption would be welcomed... A 260 ft, "Tower of Terror" would be an interesting ride. But isn't the "Tower of Terror's" ride under Disney patent possibly? IDK, just my idea...

Here's that You Tube Video...

I'm glad that someone else remembers the goodness of Questor. When it was here in Tampa it was one of the best motion-sims I had ever been on... then they replaced it with the abysmal Egyptian themed Martin Short one.... At least that is gone now too at least. :)

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I really could see them doing their own scaled down version of TOT, much like they did with DarKastle. ...What a one-two punch for BGW that would be.

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

Possible, seeing that Sea World California is rumored to get a new coaster sometime.

Can I park my donkey here?
