Mäch Tower was a Drop Tower manufactured by Moser's Rides previously located at Busch Gardens Williamsburg in Williamsburg, Virginia, USA.


Mäch Tower opened on August 19, 2011.[1]

On December 16, 2022, Busch Gardens announced via a post on its website that Mäch Tower would close permanently on January 8, 2023.[2][3] However, its last day of operation was on January 7, 2023 as the park was closed on January 8 due to extreme weather.[4] The ride was quickly removed and the tower was completely demolished within three weeks of the attraction's closure.[5]
