Paultons Park reveals 25m drop tower plans

Paultons Park has announced that it will be introducing a 25-metre (82 feet) spinning drop tower under the name of Magma this year.

The ride is expected to be a family-orientated Drop’n Twist model by the company SBF Visa Group and will open in time for the Easter weekend.

Plans indicate that a prehistoric-themed, tropical-style volcano will be built around the tower.

The  ride will have 16 seats on a rotating gondola and be capable of a 320 person per hour throughput, according to the Italian manufacturers’ website.

Paultons Park recorded an annual attendance of more than one million visitors for the first time in its history last year.
