I think its not topped out yet, maybe needs 5m more until core tops out, and then spire needs to be placed.

What do you think guys, will this tower be in the Emporis top 200 list or not? Maybe they count it only as Tv tower or so?

how much do those gravity rides cost to get a go, anyone knows?

Highest gravity on earth I presume, must be freaky and no doubt it will be one of the extreme rides in the world.

highest gravity rise in world? of course it is! its the highest ride AND observation. you will wizz up nearly 500m and down again, so for a few seconds you are higher then the 472m ob deck in SWFC.
the current highest ride would be gravity ride bIG SHOT 350m Strashphere tower in las vegas
It shoots up to 329m high!

Most of them go up fast (really scary!) then go down slower (not slow though), then go back up ultra fast when it goes down halfway, then does that again around maybe 3-5 times. I'd imagine that this will be similar.

Maybe in China but I never been on or seen any gravity rides that go up fast. Only go up slow (making people proper nervous), then stop at the top for about 10 seconds to make people more nervous then drop like mad.

I hope no one beats this ride for highest ride off ground. Maybe new Al burj design with 2 spire on top with two gravity rides, 1400 metre off the ground.

Imagine a gravity ride that goes all the way 1400m down...

I've only been on them in amusement parks in the US...you are strapped into the ride and then they do some sound effects, than a countdown (sometimes they don't do it to make it more scary) then you zoom to the top in less than 3 seconds than fall down then go back up fast. I've been on the kind you described, it also goes back up after falling 3/4 down and then does it again, the only difference is it starts on the top...I don't think it's as scary though (but they're almost the same anyway).
