I guess they used that type of ring because the ride will not operate in a rotational mode :( but it still looks great & I can't wait to "drop in" on this thing.
The paintjob leaves a bit to be desired however because the orange/yellow color scheme just doesn't look good to me,I see that the gray & green section shown on screamscape is only at the base of the tower.
LOL,I just hope they put some sort of cover over those spokes to make it look a bit better.
After looking at the bottom pic it looks almost like the seats on Acrophobia,maybe they did a stand up model to make up for the lack of rotation.although chances are that it just looks like that.oh well I can dream can't I?

My local drop tower only allowes for 4 people across on 3 seprate cars. I'm laughing in my head at the thought of all these people screaming together. It would be soooo fun to share the drop experience with so many people.
I think these drop rides offer the ultimate thrill compared to most coasters. I always leave the ride legless and my heart thumping hard!
