Dragon's Tower, Castle Park's new S&S Doubleshot Tower, awaits testing, as the structure is now complete. Work also continues on the Dark Ride, which is expected to open at the end of this month.

If your first response to this news is to find something you think is better, then maybe you are at the wrong site. Too many negatives being posted lately. I think it's great that Castle Park is putting in an S&S, who cares what it is called.

How high is the tower? The tower looks VERY small in height.

Its 90ft. I think they decided on a shorter double shot which would work better than a space shot or turbo drop in the same height. Also I think money has something to do with it as well as location, remember this park is in an urban area.

Jeff, I think that GhostriderCCI was talking about how the person above him only posted to make a comment that the name is not as good as Dragon's Descent at Funtown USA. Anywho, I think the name and the ride is great. Its realy nice to see a smaller, local park get some more rides.

I have been on a lot of tower rides and I find the shorter ones to be a lot better!!

Don't get so worked up people, of course it is going to be a good ride regardless of height/name.
