Oriental Pearl Tower

18th September 2012

A landmark of central Shanghai, the Oriental Pearl Tower features a revolving restaurant, several observation platforms, and a small amusement area that includes an indoor roller coaster. Space Switchback (#1824) can be found inside the large ball at the lower level of the tower, and it's actually surprisingly worthwhile. The station is at the highest point of the track, allowing the train to drop out of the station directly into a fast and thrilling layout in semi-darkness that concludes with an excellent airtime hill and a lift hill back to the station. The ride would make an excellent addition to any park; finding it on the ninety-seventh floor of a building is just a bonus!
