There is a bit of a discrepancy as to who manufactured this ride. Ronald Bussink has stated it was Giovanola, but Giovanola has denied involvement with the ride. It is thought that perhaps Giovanola did not want to be associated with the ride due to its troubled past.
The Tower of Terror was originally built with a 45 degree lift hill. This was later replaced with an elevator style lift system.
The tower of this ride is an authentic tower from a gold mine. It was relocated from an old gold mine about 5km away.
