Intamin Gyro Drops

Is Acrophobia a Gyro Drop ? And Drop Zone @ PKI is the world's tallest Gyro Drop - Right ?
And which do you think is more thrilling Drop Zone or Acrophobia ? And does anyone know how much anyone of them cost ?

Acrophobia because:

1) Your standing up

2) There is no floor

3) The seats tilt outwards right befor the drop, forcing you to look down

I don't know about you,but I'd rather stand than sit on a freefall.

Standing would feel just like skydiving,which I enjoy doing every blue moon or so.:)

I really liked Acro, but the "tilting" wasn't that far really, 15 degrees I think, but the view of the approaching ground was really cool.  But, overall, the "standing" is truly more of a PR thing than the actual riding position, IMO.  The additional height of Drop-Zone, and the view, offsets any advantage that Acro may have.  tie-game to me...

 Drop Zone still freaks me out to this day.  The standing position of Acrophobia is a great idea, and it also made my heart beat rapidly, but one thing that I didn't care for about it was the hard braking at the bottom.  For some reason, Drop Zone's braking doesn't bother me in the slightest.

You figure it out.
