I've just been finding these weird Sky Screamer in Marineland, Canada is being clamed the Worlds Tallest Drop Tower 450 ft including the hill it is sitting on. The Big Shot in Las Vegas is 1,081 ft including the tower. I just don’t think it’s right do be considered the tallest when the ride is on a 100 foot hill to began with when the big shot is on a 900 foot tall tower.
ride 350 ft
hill 100 ft
total 450 ft
ride 160 ft
tower 921 ft
total 1,081 ft

Big Shot is a space shot model. Isn't the Marineland ride a turbo drop?

It's a combo but I don't think that makes a difference.

They don't claim it as the tallest, or even the highest. Instead, it's "the world's highest triple tower ride."

People seem to forget about DreamWorld, Australia:
Giant Drop is 120 meter = 393.7007874 feet
actual drop height. (Maybe 4m less deducting the tip of the tower).
I don't think anything is close to that.

Besides, Wicked_Twister_Man... you got your facts wrong... the triple tower itself is 300' & it sits atop a 150' hill... which means that the tower itself is roughly the same height as Power Tower @ CP.

Not to mention the drop ride at Dreamworld is still taller, as mentioned by superman.

Would you care to type that in a coherent sentence the next time?
