Down Time, a Turbo Drop operating at Lake Compounce

Turbo Drop is a model of tower-based amusement ride manufactured by S&S Worldwide, similar to the company's Space Shot.

Design and operationEdit

The ride is a vertical drop tower. It uses compressed air to slowly lift a 12-16 seat 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.
