Hurakan Condor - Port Aventura's Dreadful Drop Tower

Hurakan Condor - Port Aventura [enlarge]

Hurakan Condor by the Swiss company Intamin AG is a frightening drop tower which provides the happy customer with a thrilling 3 second free fall ride from a trifling height of about 300 feet or 100 meters. Wanna see how it looks like from the top? Check a Hurakan Condor ride video. There are other famous attractions in Port Aventura like Dragon Khan which were featured here in the past.

Exquisite sepia everything! I'm looking at the carvings in the lower part of the building - so lovely - and the corner sconces (for lack of the architectural term!).
I saw the video and it made me dizzy going up. The music playing added to the tension. :)

Well I thought it was some ancient tower until I read the text. I'll certainly pass on watching the video. I wouldn't enjoy riding on any fairground ride but such objects do lend themselves to photography.
