Written by Ty Mullins
The world's tallest gyro-drop, standing 315-feet tall with a 264-foot drop.
The attraction opened as Drop Zone: Stunt Tower in 1999 before being renamed in 2008.
FastLane is available for this attraction.
This is as good of a tower ride as you can get! Nice height and capacity, the rotation during the ascent was fun, and they hold you for about 30 seconds at the top before dropping to build excitement. The whole way down is pure airtime but you still feel very secure in your restraint. (9/10) - Lexi R
This ride is amazing i have never been a on drop tower where you rotate well going up also i have never been on one thats 315 feet its the best ride in the park! - ed shaheen
9 or 10/10. It's really pretty much amazing, if that's a good description. The views are great and the free fall is always awesome. - Bradley Keith
Unbelieveable how great this ride was. I loved it and went on it at least five times. It is the best ride in the park(excluding vortex because when I went it was shut down.)Great ride and is a must ride when visiting Kings Island. 10/10 - Shayne Nissen
This ride was done perfectely with all the thrills of falling 315 feet done in a few thrilling seconds, I suggest if you go to Kings Island that you should check out Drop Tower - Michael Hurley
