LOL getting ready to build a FREAK highest rollercoaster on the EARTH. I can't wait to hear information on the drop tower.

Is the spire gonna be the combination of drop ride and antenna? meaning even if the lightning strikes, people on the drop ride wont be harmed?

Its said that people can be raised to over 500m but not to the right top...BUT I guess this activity will not be open when there‘s a thundershower....if open..guess no one will risk his life to enjoy this excitement...anyway its pretty dangerous

from that pic above, those buildings below and behind are downright minuscule! I can barely fathom what it's like to be there, at the top of that monster. I bet its ridiculously windy too!

Those are just gorgeous!

Looks like someone approached it with good equipment and didn't compress the shit out of it, like most do.
