 Review of Astrotower @ Astroland
0 Rating Posted by: TOGO_Fan on 5/6/2001 1:28:00 PM
Well, this ride is your average observation tower. It has some nice Astroworld signs. It has great veiws of the Cyclone from the top not to mention the rest of the park. The themeing is slim to none. The ride is pretty much standard and somewhat fun if you are afraid of heights. Also, very nice and comfy seats are on this ride. My ratings are Design - 6, Themeing - 1, Fun Factor - 5, Re-Ride - 3, Intensity - 1, Scare Factor - 2, Originality - 5. The final rating is...3.2 which is a 3. Thanks For Listening. TOGO_Fan

Sorryu I have not been active lately, but there are ways you can theme an observation tower. You can put drawings all around it. Or, theme it like the Aztec pole. There could be AA people at the ends of the pole swinging (Learned in History). Anyhow. There are ways. Dont doubt that. TOGO_Fan

Also it is meant to be an "observation tower" not a thril ride so why does it need a "scare factor". Also just wondering when you have a design score does that mean just this ride or observation towers in general.

You still have mentioned the scare factor.

Like, I have a fear of hieghts, so the scare factor was the heights was really scary for me...I get nervous and butterflies and the whole bit. TOGO_Fan

But you gave it a scare factor of 2!

But I was actually enclosed and secured very nicely, but if the tower was open and only had railings and no real seats and such it would probably get an even bigger scare factor, and plus the Astrotower isnt very tall. TOGO_Fan

But thats what the ride is about a nice tower with comfortable seats to take pictures of, the Cyclone, Coney Island (altered) Southern Manhatten.
