Turbo Drop is a type of tower-based amusement ride manufactured by S&S Worldwide, similar to the company's Space Shot. The current tallest Turbo Drop installation in operation is Supreme Scream at Knott's Berry Farm in Buena Park, California.
Design and operation [ edit ]
The ride is a vertical drop tower. It uses
compressed air to slowly lift a 12-14seat car to the top of the tower, at an approximate and average speed of 12 miles per hour (19 km/h). The car is held for multiple seconds, before it is released, dropping almost to the ground. The compressed air 'bounces' the car back to halfway, before it is lowered to the loading dock. As the tower is four-sided, up to sixteen passengers can ride simultaneously.
Variants [ edit ]
S&S Worldwide's Combo Ride combines the Turbo Drop and Space Shot operating modes in a single ride.
