52. Cannonball
No park is complete without a drop tower. This is an ideal attraction for Dreamland - it takes up little space, is an extremely thrilling ride, and can be seen from outside the park.

The ride is made up of one vertical steel tower structure fixed to a steel base, which is kept stable by means of four stabilising legs. The half round-section vehicle can accommodate eight passengers and it slides on the tower's external structure. The vehicle is taken up to the top of the tower by a steel chain. The vehicle is then released, falling freely to the ground, and it is finally braked by means of permanent magnetic brakes.
