Do you enjoy drop towers? I do, but they have to have a substancial drop, that way you are able to really feel that rubber band effect at both ends of the ride. Otherwise it doesn't work for me. The only acception, of course, is if it is a real drop tower, were you only drop, such as Demon Drop at CP.

Yes, but i find the smaller ones not really worth queueing for. I rarely go on Detonator at TP because the thrill just isn't worth the average 30min wait for it. But i love the big ones, such as Appocolypse, the stand-up element though is really what makes this such a great ride.

God, yes.

Probably one of the few rides that will offer the same sensation time again again without boring me.

Yeah I do also think that it's much nicer. I haven't been on any drop tower that drops you down like the Gyro Drops, I would love to ride one, if they won't spin or rotate as you go up, they won't be as good IMO. I won't queue over 30mins for a simple up-stop-drop ride, if it wasn't something really special.

I really like the towers that spin you around as you go up so you get good views of all sides of the park.

I really don't like them. Sit down ones I can mange just about, but Apocalypse kills me every time.

I like the drop, that's not a problem. It's the whole height thing. The slow ascent and the pause at the top.

I don't maind space shots so much as it's quick to gain the height.

Drop towers though really don't do good things for me. I was a right mess comnig off Apocalypse today!!!

YES YES YES YES YES!

Drop Towers absoloutly rule, want a quick adrenaline rush? Go for the drop tower, especially the Fabbri ones like Detonator, they absoloutly arse hole the adrenaline level and get it pumping, I come of all bouncy and happy :)

I went on my first drop tower last saturday, it was truely amazing. I'm all for drop rides...but if its too tall I aint gonna ride it! Drop rides are freaking scary, but if youwant a true freefalling experience ride a ripcord - theyre a little pricy but its good to do at least onbce.

Drop towers - only ride that scares me at all these days, even after however many rides, as well as that "why am I doing this?" as that slow climb begins. Loved Detonator - definitely better than the shot towers, and the drop was much better, amazing sensation and probably stays that way, take much longer to get boring than the other rides.

I love the sensation, hate the height. I love the way you fly out of you sit and plummet down, amongst the best flats around IMO.

Chuff yes! Love them. They certainly manage to scare me every time, and play on my distaste for heights. Ever since I managed to no-hands Detonator, i'm keen to give Apocolypse a go again. I've done it 10+ times, but it still scares the hell outta me. The stand-up floored side still manages to scare me on the way down too!

Ugh no! Very weak stomach when it comes to vertical drops! Wouldn't even think of getting on one!

I don't like drop towers because I'm a wimp and I get scared of them :p

I do like the ones that shoot you up, however.
