I got a friend of mine to go on tower 3 (he had been on tower 1 many years before) He doesn't like freefall rides but could handle the 1 drop tower 1 did. I didn't tell him of the changes in tower 3 :shock: After the second drop he was hugging the lap bar for dear life. Now when we go I get his FP and enjoy it over and over.

I also still love the 'center' seat on the back row even though it does have the belt. You can let your feet go up a bit. :lol:

Sadly I have had to start cutting back my trips here for a bit... the summer crowds were ruthless. Just another month and traffic will be flowing a little better.

It's not a question of motivation, it's a question of economics :( Besides, who takes a ship to Florida? Or anywhere? :) ;)

The first time I went on it, one of my best guy friends was a Bellhop, we went through the main way (so I could see the preshow) and then we rode... then we backdoored (just taking the chicken exit in reverse) and rode again and again and again....about 30 times. That was no breaks in between, 30 times back to back, ride the elevator up, did the drop, rid ethe elevator up... we did it until I could hardly walk anymore. I had a 6 foot 1 guy on one side and a 6 foot 2 guy on the other, as I'm 5 foot 6 at the time, and they were both about 100lbs heavier than I was. Talk about major air time everytime we rode. :)
