Special Info

Ever hear a squeal of tyres as the ride starts and stops? Because of the way LSM launches work, the ride requires a mechanical means of starting and stopping the motion.

31 Dec 2007 . The ride was boring and not worth the wait.

I'd rather go wait for Giant Drop.

15 May 2006 . The name doesn't fit the ride. Well it was untill the superman came into action. The only good thing was that I went on the tower before I went on the superman. But after the superman the tower is a kids ride. Dreamworld you will have to up with somthing quick to be back as #1.
