It really wasn't our choice, but I lthink the best drop tower name would be Acrophobia anyways. Haha, we got one other thing original too, the colors are way different. It goes Blue-Green-Orange-Blue-Orange-Green-Blue(top) It will look great once the whole tower is up.

I seen that i thought of the Dropzones at the paramount parks instead of SFOG's Acro.

So is the Stl acro just a standard second gen Intamin drop.

I prefer the gen 2's because they seem to have way-to-short brake runs. Of course, Acro owns every drop ride outside of MGM in my book, and Star Flyers are the best tower ride period ::D

Hello this is Steve, these pictures were shot by me at Sixflags in STL and the drop tower. STLBOI pulled the images from sfstl.net. I am the photagrapher. Look there later this afternoon and you will see the green section being lifted up to the top and put on, from the front as well as the back of the park. You will also see this is huge and towers the skyline and treeline in the back of the park.

My screen name at SFSTL.net is sisxflagsstloldschool, why I put the extra s in six is beyond me. See ya!!!!!!!! Later gator!

Sorry for misleading anyone here, but the official announcement has been held back and I have no clue as to when it will be taken place yet.

And yes, I believe it is a regular 2nd Gen. drop tower because it comes from Astroworld.

Also, the last section of the tower was added on today (1/25/06) and the complete top of the tower will be added on very soon I assume by the rate of how fast it is going up.

Last section is finally up...look how lowering it looks up there!

If only it were the Acrophobia at SFOG. Atleast they are getting a new ride, now they just need a hyper coaster! :)
