According to the park, the contraption will hoist riders 335 feet in the air, then drop them at 60mph. Riders will be inclined 90 degrees forward, giving the impression of diving towards the earth like a bird of prey at 3.5 G's.

I know I read about this drop tower and even saw plans, I would say more than a year ago. Can anyone remember where and when they were "leaked" ?

I think it was leaked from Screamscape.
