As one of the most exciting and thrilling equipment in the amusement park, the Drop Tower is designed to imitate the launch process of the spacecraft. With the drop tower ride, a gondola(spacecraft) carrying passengers will be lifted to the top of the central structure, then released to free-fall down to the lowest point. When the ‘spacecraft’ is launched into the sky, the high-speed vertical lift brings passengers a great sense of weightlessness. Passengers feel like being thrown out of the earth and sent into space as if they are sitting in a "spaceship". The maximum acceleration can reach 3g at the moment of launch, which is definitely smaller than the space launch acceleration since it is designed mainly for ordinary people. When reaching its highest point, the ‘spacecraft’ drops rapidly in free fall and further gives passengers an unforgettable sensory experience.
This equipment is extremely suitable for teenagers and adults who love scientific experience and space exploration. The height of the tower can be customized. Overall, Drop Tower is generally known as the most cannot miss, high-tech amusement equipment.
A drop tower or free fall is a type of amusement ride that is designed in the concept of free fall motion in physics and helps people get away with their fear and anxiety. It is common in amusement and theme parks and is also known as “Down from the Sky”, “Vertical Limit”, “Two Heroes (refer to twin tower free fall)” and “Furious God (in Taiwan)”. With most drop towers, a gondola carrying riders is lifted to the top of a large vertical structure, then released to free-fall down the tower. Brakes activate to slow the gondola as it approaches the bottom of the ride.
Each drop tower has different passenger capacity, equipped with safety devices like brakes and safety belts and incorporates a central structure or tower, which has tracks for the gondola to climb. Also, the whole dropping system has sensors to detect the speed of climbing and dropping, so that it can maintain normal operation.
