Standing 245 feet tall, this free-fall tower is located in the Oktoberfest section of the park. Riders are seated in a 30 person ring around the tower, which rotates as it makes its way to the top.
Ultimately the main feature is the drop, which will offer a 60 mph free-fall as the exclamation point for the ride.
*During Christmas Town, This ride is renamed Nacht Tower and does not drop. Instead, It slowly lowers itself to the ground.
Short ride. Not as high or great a drop as in other parks. Nice delay at the top. But to short.
I mean it's fun but 8/10
I was surprised so much by this ride! When we got to the top, the person counted 4, 9, 15, 7 and then we dropped! I wasn't expecting the unpredictable counting so it caught me off guard! The drop was exhilarating! Overall a very great ride! -9
I rode this as Nacht Tower (slow up and slow down just to see lights). It's nice to see the whole park and the millions of lights from way up high, but it is cold! 8/10.
I had high hopes for this ride. My impressions are the following:
Just like the rest of my visit to BGW, the line didn't exceed thirty minutes. If it does, steer clear of this ride. Anyway, this ride offers a great view of the entire park, plus the James River! There was no classical music playing when the vehicle ascended, like advertised.
