Thorpe Park’s obligatory drop tower ride is on a slightly smaller scale to many of its other attractions, standing at “just” 115-feet-tall. Guests are raised to the top of the tower, being held for a short period to enable them to experience views across the park and beyond. Not for long, as they then plummet towards the ground. The ride achieves at top speed of 47 miles per hour, with pneumatics being used to ensure a “faster than freefall” drop. The attraction now features an Angry Birds theme.
