Tower of Terror II, Australia

From series “The Most Thrilling Roller Coasters in the World”
Year: 1997. Height: 115 meters.

Thrilling roller coaster that can claim to be the most impressive can be found in Australia. It is situated in the popular Gold Coast beach resort, in the Dreamworld Gold Coast amusement park. Opening of the dramatic ride called 'Tower of Terror' was held in 1997. In 2010, the roller coaster was a bit modernized and became known as 'The Tower of Terror II.' Hill has an L-shape; the height of its 90-degree tower is 115 meters. To climb to such a height, a small cart with passengers has a top speed of 160 km/h; only 3 seconds are needed to reach such a speed. Such a lightning fast acceleration is due to the specially designed engine, whose power is 2.2 MW.

Departing from the unique technical characteristics of the ride, it's worth noting its main attractive feature. It allows passengers to experience the force of gravity in full; after reaching the top of the tower the cart rushes to the ground in freefall. Apart from the main cart, the most popular Australian ride has two more; they are located on the back side. Despite the fact that the Tower of fear now is far from the world championship, it never ceases to be unique. Over 600 tons of steel were used to build it and it took more than 16,000 bolts to seal the construction. Weight of the main cart, which can accommodate up to 15 passengers, is 6 tons; its engine power is enough to provide electricity for a small town for about 7 seconds. Next - Mumbo Jumbo
