Busch Gardens Tampa announces drop-tower rideBusch Gardens Tampa: Falcon's Fury will be the tallest freestanding drop tower in North America.
From Daniel EtcheberryAccording 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.

From Tony DudaI 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" ?
