? about Texas thrill rides

Sunday, August 4, 2002 10:24 PM
Okay recently my friend Meghan went to Texas and visited at least two parks (SFOT and SFFT). She may have visited more, but I'm not sure. She explained a thrill ride as a tower with seats in which your feet dangle. You are launched up the tower, rotate to the other side and come down. You go up, do it again, and fall down. On the third time, you go up and over the top of the tower, turning your head towards the ground before plummeting to the ground. If you know about any thrill ride in Texas that even remotely sounds like this ride, please post. I would like a name and maybe a website where I get see pics and info. Thanks.

They're 2 rides your talking about The Triple Tower ride (dang I forgot the name) at SFFT which You launch up first and it slows you to the top and then it launches you back down. It does not rotate at all but your feet dangle. This ride is a S&S Double Shot I belive.

The other one which seems like it got mixed but it can still be the ride she's talking about is the Wildcatter at SFOT. This is a 1st generation Intamin FreeFall. What it does is that you sit in the car and it starts going backwards and then goes up an elevator shaft, at the top you car is pushed forward a lil ways, and then you drop straight down and the fall track curves you into a lay down posistion trough some breaks. Afterthat The Car gets picked right back up and lowered into the station track and sent back into the station. BTW you feet do not dangle on this ride.

I hope this helps.

The 3 Tower S&S ride at Fiesta Texas is Scream, and is an S&S Combo tower, they mainly run 1 program, where you are launched to the top, then come back down, then are taken up to the top, then dropped to the ground.
