Tower of Terror is a sit-down roller coaster located at Gold Reef City in Gauteng, South Africa. The ride was designed by Nauta Bussink, manufactured by local companies and built by Gold Reef City.[1] This coaster currently holds the record for the highest g-force on a roller coaster at 6.5G. (A spaceship launches at 3G's)

DesignEdit

Tower of Terror lifts the car up with an elevator lift. It then pushes the car forward into the vertical drop. The drop dives 49 feet (14.9 metres) under the ground into a former mine shaft.[2]
