The first Dungeon in Asia opened its doors to the public this September. It is the 10th Dungeon of its kind globally and offers its visitors 10 specifically themed, interactive scenarios, telling the story of the Old Shanghai’s legends and stories. The last scenario is packed with a specific thrill and offers a globally unique ride experience: standing drop ride, designed and constructed by Ride Engineers Switzerland, the first stand-alone tower worldwide.

The standing drop ride at Dungeon represents the newest generation of drop towers. It is an inside installation with a standing gondola version. It delivers a great free fall feeling without any prenoticeable movement on the gondola. The straight gondola has a capacity of 18 people. The free fall tower is equipped for the highest safety standards and has been successfully approved by CSEI (China Special Equipment Inspection and Research Institute) in August 2018.

Ride Engineers Switzerland congratulates Shanghai Dungeon to the opening, wishes a lot of success and only visitors with smiling faces.
