Tower Rides is a drop tower range from S&S Sansei Technologies.[1]

History

The Space Shot was introduced in 1994, and was the world's first drop tower.[2]

In October 2020, S&S unveiled a new seating design which allows the seats to rotate such that riders are facing the ground or sky. The rotation of the seats can be programmed to create different ride experiences. Existing installations may be retrofitted with the new seats.[3]
