^Absolutely agreed. And the solid blue, and that shade of blue, just aren't doing it for me. And yeah, it just looks bulky.

In my opinion,this thing is ugly and the way the tower was made is ugly I think as well. Also I think this is going to be an boring drop tower,but I could be wrong.

Oh wow, that blue is awful and I must agree the tower is very bulky looking... Poor Oktoberfest! Hopefully it gets a kick-a$$ coaster next year to make up for the odd renovations it went through this year. The colors they are painting Oktoberfest seem like colors I should see in the Grove at KD, not in a German themed area of a park. :|

^The official colors of the state of Bavaria (where Oktoberfest is officially held) are blue and white, so how does the color scheme of this ride not fit in with the theme?

Why do I still have a donkey title???

So, the drop tower will be boring because it is ugly or do you actually have some other explanation for your reasoning???

^I guess he was refferring to the fact that it was only 240ft tall. But I think at the top, we'll barely notice a difference.

But I do agree that the tower is very ugly :?r
Reality is a lovely place, but I wouldn't wanna live there.

I think the tower looks OK, particularly in the long shots as it rises over the trees. Personally, I don't think it looks worse than other drop towers I've seen (KD's could sure stand a paint job, great ride that it is), and the rotating seat platform should be a nice touch.
