Tower of Terror when it opened became the world's tallest (377 feet), fastest (100 mph) roller coaster. The height record was eclipsed a few months later when Six Flags Magic Mountain opened Superman The Escape. Tower of Terror is a reverse freefall, launched shuttle coaster from Intamin. The trains accelerate from 0 to 100 mph in 7 seconds using high-tech LSM motors. Riders experience 6.5 seconds of weightlessness during the ride.
