The new color setup is inspired by CA's giant Sequoia trees, transitioning from a rich brown tone at the base of the tower to a vibrant green as you head toward the top. We think this new color setup will breathe fresh life into the area and will really stand out even outside of the park's boundaries.
|In this mockup, we can see the new color scheme. The tower used in this photo however|
is from Canada's Wonderland, as evidenced with Leviathan's track to the right.
Last week, the Base Painters crew was hard at work being hoisted up the tower to degrease and power wash the tower to remove all of the grime and residue that may have built up over the years of operation, to ensure a fresh, clean surface for the new paint to adhere to.
|As viewed from outside the park, you can see the paint crew at the top of the tower.|
Just to the left on the tower, you can see the original "Drop Zone green" scheme from the 90s as well as
a hint of orange that was once on the multi-colored tower.

|White Water Falls also received a brand new sign that fits nice with the area.|
Drop Tower opened in 1996 and at the time, it was the world's tallest freefall attraction on the planet. Drop Tower is a "2nd generation" freefall manufacutured by Intamin, who had also manufactured the defunct "1st generation" freefall known as "The Edge" which once resided just down the midway (where Thunder Road go-karts are now).
