Introduction and historical development of drop tower amusement rides

Drop tower amusement rides, also known as jumping machines, space shuttles, catapult towers, etc., can take passengers to high altitudes, then fall at the speed of almost free fall, and finally stop before landing in a controllable way. It’s a kind of amusement ride designed based on the phenomenon of free fall in physics.

The drop tower amusement rides are usually in the shape of a tall steel structure column with seats containing safety measures around the column and a lifting device that can take the seat to a high altitude in the column.

The earliest drop tower in the world is named “Giant Oil Company” in Australian Dream World. It was built in 1996, is 119 meters high, and has a maximum speed of 135 km/h. It has been the tallest drop tower in the world for more than ten consecutive years.

The tallest drop tower in the world is the drop tower of Six Flags Park in New Jersey, USA, with a height of 126 meters and a running speed of 140 kilometers per hour.

The world’s tallest position drop tower is located on the Canton Tower in Guangzhou, China, on the 484-meter-high TV tower, with a height difference of 30 meters.

Due to the tense and exciting feeling caused by the operation of the drop tower, there are high requirements on the passengers’ bodies. Passengers with a history of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases, fear of heights, and surgery experience are not suitable for such amusement facilities.
