Carolina Skytower is a vertical tower/observation tower. It is fun, average speed, rerideable, it has a large capacity, and a long duration. It is a nice family ride and gives a nice view of the park.

Caroina skytower is one of the popular famous family attracions. But is more a family thrill ride then a regular thrill ride.

It is very hard to rate this. It isnt there to thrill, just to give a nice view. It does that perfectly. It is air-conditioned inside and the guide gives some nice info(if you are interested). It was a clear day, so we got some great pictures. If you need to get off your feet for a few minutes, go ahead and ride it.

Not a bad ride at all. I really dont know what to give it, but Ill just describe it first and then maybe a rating will come to mind. The ride is a vertical tower that rotates on the way up and then spins a full revolution at the top before descending (still rotating). The ride was cool for some aerial photogrpahs and views of the park, but nothing much more. I guess it would have been kinda cool to ride in the heat since it was air conditioned, but certainly nothing to thrill its riders. Since I cant imagine a wait time more than 5 minutes, I would suggest that you take a ride just to enjoy the view. The "tour guide" was a nice old man though (about 85 years old if I remember correctly) and provided some nice commentary. I guess a 6 is appropriate.
