The roller coaster isn't intense, but the high wind speed at the top makes it feel otherwise :P.

Stratosphere, I like the tower's curve better. But Macao tower looks good too.

Macau Tower was completed in 2001. Stratosphere in 1996.

As a result, Macau Tower is a rip-off of The Stratosphere (and not the opposite). I hate rip-offs. I'll likely stay with the original. Plus, Las Vegas > Macau.

Both of them look similar. I chose Macau Tower because I was there.
