I think I share that same sentiment... While I really enjoy both, I found Giant Drop at SF Great America far scarier than Drop Zone at Kings Dominion... with the possible exception of Acrophobia SFoG, which frightened me on MANY levels... I am truly sad that Sandstorm is being removed from the park (one of the FEW "spin" rides I love) I am looking forward to BGTs annoncement on 6/11 (in anticipation of a tower)...

Those definitely have the most intense "freefall feeling. Too bad they are not higher capacity.

And Elissa, though it doesn't say who is building the tower, I've heard that it is Intamin! :b :br

It actually looks great. I really like the name. I guess we do not know who is designing it?

I believe the phrase we're all looking for here is "Suck it Mach tower!"

Robb's at the press event right now so will hopefully get us some more details soon.

Yeah, I'm not quite sure what Busch Gardens Williamsburg was thinking when they built Mach Tower instead of something like this.

This could be the one to take Blue-Falls crown as one of the scariest drop towers around.
