For those that have been on tower 4 several times, have you gotten to ride all 4 drops? and how long did it take you to get all 4 drops? It was 6 rides for me before I got all 4 at least once.

Yes, I got to ride all 4 drops during previews. It was 5 or 6 for me to get all 4 of them. It was fun being the only one in the car to find out how these new drops were going to be. Our previews were at 7:30 in the morning, and only open to our area, so not many people were there. There was a security guard at the entry queue who was laughing at me everytime I came back around (for some reason we had to walk all the way back around instead of backdooring even though there was no one there) because he could her me screaming each and everytime I rode it :blink:

Took me 5-6 as well. That seems to be the average # to get all 4 drop profiles.

The silly thing about making us go around is that the preshow wasn't playing...

But I have been on it where I got the same one 4 times in a row. :blink:

False ending? I have been on the ToT once, and that was before it was the ToT 4. Also, for the 4 drops - do you mean whole, 13 1/2 story drops?

I think they made you go around to get a running total of who was on the ride (passing through the turnstiles). It still doesn't make sense, though. Another CM could just turn it. They even do that on E-Ticket nights when nobody is in the queue! Crazy!

They should have just let you ride the car through and through. (That would have been fun)

It probably cycles through an area they don't want you to see, I'm guessing.

I wanted to, or even just let us backdoor (chicken elevator back up). The other two left way before me because they didn't want to keep walking around.

I've seen more than 90% of the scences, areas and all that for the ride that guests will never get to see, so that part wouldn't be true.
