I won't put any spoilers in this report but I will say the lack of any significant horizontal movement has no effect on the ride experience. The special effects were stunning and the random drop sequences made rerides even more fun. I rode with a number of people over a 2-day period who are terrified of drop rides and they all loved Tower of Terror!
Adding ToT to DCA's other e-ticket attractions [Soaring, Screamin, Grizzly River, and Tough To Be a Bug] now makes DCA feel like more of a full-fledged park.
I can't wait to go back and ride it again!
Pass da' sizzrup, bro!
But, I love all the detail in the ride and the capacity is great. It'll be nice when all that Wisteria comes in.
Robo-It's official. Finally moving to Vegas October 1st!

With this ride, I REALLY don't understand the things people complain about at DCA!

Ah...Random drop sequences? While the effects are stunning (and better then Florida) there are no random drop sequences (yet) on CA version. From what I hear there will be eventually, but not right now. Florida on the other hand has amazing random drops. You even see different things in the different programs.
Overall I prefer the Florida version better, but DCA's has a lot going for it too. Once random drops start it will be even better.
I will say though, that for some reason, the Alpha shaft has seemed a bit more powerful to me every time I have ridden it. It also seems to break down the most. I have seen this shaft go down many many times now. And haven't seen the other two break down as often. Last Sunday they was even men working on Alpha's Horton doors at park opening. That was a bad morning as both the other shafts quickly followed suit, shutting the whole ride down only 30 minutes after the park had opened! So far, that's the only time I have seen all three shafts down at the same time.
Interesting info on what it will take to do random profiles. Never thought about all the differences that will have to be taken into account. Thanks Phantom!
