Drop Tower was my first Intamin drop tower. For years I had always heard that S and S drop towers paled in comparison to the brute intensity of the Intamin models, but until boarding this, I was in the dark. But now I agree wholeheartedly with those sentiments. The drop is breathtaking. While S and S towers give one major burst of air-time at the start of the descent and then coast down the remainder of the tower, this Intamin tower drops you like a rock. Once the drop kicks in, there is generous floater air the entire way down and it is a far more authentic free fall. Drop Tower introduced me to Intamin drop towers and it is easily one of the best attractions at the park. The only thing that hurts it compared to other drop towers is the view. While tall, this one really did not have much to look at.

Giving this ride a 3 is generous: I've always thought and always will think that drop towers are OVERRATED, any brand, anywhere. S&S' towers have a much more intense initial drop, but since Intamin's towers drop you longer, climb faster and have a better capacity, I give them the upper edge.

But still, what you get here is so bland! You're dropped, which gets you a bit out of your seat for half a second, and then instead of experiencing an actual freefall, you just loudly roll down the tower's vertical track, and then it's over. Oh, and the climb up is very unnerving at first, but then, as you're aware of the mildness of the actual drop, the stressful effect just dissipates.

I don't think any of those towers are worth the wait: they give you an incredibly short moment of airtime, and... goodbye, that's all you've been waiting for in line!

I know many of you won't agree with my thoughts, which is why I'd like you to comment. I really wanna hear about what you think of the matter!

I love Intamins so much more than S&S towers and this is a perfect example. While not that much to look at, lines are really short for this despite it being on of the parks better rides. The climb and pause at the top is extremely suspenseful no matter how many times Ive been on it, but the views at the top were nothing to shout about. However, the drop was a totally different story as it was not only sudden, but I totally lost my stomach and there was good floater air the whole way down. The intensity of these Intamin towers absolutely blows away S&S ones.

This is a very good Intamin drop tower. As always, the drop was very suspenseful and very intense. I was out of my seat the whole way down and got a very good stomach dropping sensation. Only negative is the pretty mediocre views on this one.

Just another Intamin drop tower, nothing that fantastic. I rode it for something to do before the rain came so I actually got a pretty freaky drop with the storm hitting, but other than that nothing memorable. Not in a great location either. I usually ride these just for the credit and that is what this was.

This park often has large crowds for almost every attraction, so I think that Paramount should have put in a larger capacity drop tower ride than this. The lines for this ride are often insane. Overall, the drop is quite fast, the height is tall, and the ride is fun.

I love this ride its 215 feet tall and travels at 69 mph or 100 kmh its a quick thrill and is insane! It is so much fun! The ride op was great too! He told us there were technical difficulties with the breaking system and that we would have to wait about 5 minutes for them to fix it....and I actually believed him. Then whoosh straight to the ground. I was so surprised! Plus sometimes in the morning drop zone is a walk on.. which is very good. Pick the higher numbers of seats like 5 4 or 3 because they have the best view of the city and the park. Plus the ride has some fairly decent theming which I wasnt expecting...a speaker tells you the whole ride as if he is director and you are a stunt person for an action film... Very very good ride...insanely thrilling and very fun. A 10 in my books

A good drop ride that gives you a nice view of the park and also air time. It is fast, fun, rerideable, it has a large capacity, and a long duration.

Good ride, but it suffers from massive lines and terrible capacity. Not as intense as other drop rides - S&S Turbo Drops, mainly.
