Drop Tower

Extreme fear by the numbers!

What goes up must come down – and down, and down, and down at incredibly dizzying speeds on the Drop Tower, among our guests' favourite rides. Your Drop Tower experience begins by strapping into an open car, feet dangling and spending what feels like an infinity ascending 230 feet into thin air to the peak, taking in a gorgeous view of the park. But trust us, you won't enjoy that view for very long.

Before another thought can enter your brain, the ride releases and you drop -- you plunge -- you are entirely emptied into a free fall of over 21 stories, reaching frenetic speeds of up to 100 kilometers per hour before the brakes kick in and – did that really happen? – you're at the bottom and back to normal. But, know this: after riding the Drop Tower, you're never truly normal again.

Towering at 230 feet (70.1M), Drop Tower is the same height as Behemoth; only Leviathan and WindSeeker are taller than this extreme thrill! This is one of the many great rides in the FAST LANE lineup.

Guests must be 54" tall to ride.

Rider Safety Information

Min Height
  • A free-fall ride that lifts riders to the top of a structure and drops them. Riders will experience weightlessness and rapidly changing forces.
  • Maximum weight is 800 lb. per car.
  • A shoulder harness with a between-the-legs safety belt secures each rider over the head and across the chest.
  • Due to the nature of the restraint, this ride may not accommodate guests of a larger size.
  • Guests must have a minimum of two functioning extremities; one of which must be an arm.
  • Two functioning arms are sufficient instead of one functioning arm and one functioning leg if the guest has a normal center of gravity and lower extremities are sufficiently strong to support weight against the restraint under the dynamic conditions of the ride. Guests without an appropriate center of gravity with only one functioning leg may ride as long as they have sufficient lower extremities to ensure the ride restraint system adequately restrains them. Amputations must be below the knee. Amputations must be at the knee or below.
  • Guests with a cervical collar, neck brace, broken collar bone, full arm cast, braced arm cast, or full leg cast are not permitted to ride.
  • Guests with any type of prosthesis should not ride unless they can ensure the device is properly secured and will remain in place during the ride.
  • Alternate access is available at the ride exit to the left. Riders will have to take several steps, on their own or with the assistance of a companion, and be capable of elevating themselves up into the seat.
  • Please do not use the ride restraints for support while entering and exiting, as they will shift.
  • WARNING:  This ride utilizes magnetic systems during the ride.
