Mach Tower

The current version of this description is at Mach Tower.

Coming in 2011 is a big change to the park's skyline, Mach Tower. Standing 245 feet tall, this free-fall tower will be located where Katapult (the park's scrambler ride) currently resides.

Riders are seated in a 30 person ring around the tower, which rotates as it makes its way to the top. Park officials promise several surprises when riders reach the top and an amazing view. Ultimately the main feature will be the the drop which will offer a 60 mph free-fall as the exclamation point for the ride. -- Last edited by James Rao on September 18, 2010
