One of the bigger combinations of Space Shot
and Turbo Drop
towers. The tower itself is 300 feet tall, and at the time it was built, was the tallest thing in the park. It has since been surpassed in height
by the Millenium Force
can go up to 240 feet in the air
. This is only one that has four towers together. All similar rides
in the nation have only three
towers at maximum.
The towers are white, and at the top the four curve together and meet at a point. There's also a horizontal section near the top, where the name of the ride, and "Cedar Point", are mounted. Inside the towers are large air hoses, colored to the type of ride on the tower. The cars go around the outside of the tower, and the seats are attached to and stick out from the metal sheets that make up most of the car. There is no floor, ceiling, or anything that can be considered a wall, so you feel rather open as your arms and legs dangle.
Two of the towers do the "Space Shot". The car, when loaded, starts floating a couple feet above the ground while the compressed air system that runs the ride charges. Then, without warning, you are shot up the tower, reaching about 250 feet. When the car starts falling back down, the air in the tubes compresses, and you bounce back up part of the distance. This happens a few times, then the car is lowered back down to the ground. The cars and air tubes are colored red.
The other two do the "Turbo Drop". The car is loaded, then slowly (or maybe a little faster than slowly) ascends up to the top. There is a delay, then, without warning, the car is shot down at about twice freefall. Once again, the air compresses, and you bounce up and down a few times. The cars and air tubes are colored blue.
