Power Tower is a thrill ride located at two Cedar Fair parks. The attractions are powered by air in large cylinders in which an aircraft steel cable, connected to the internal piston, travels and is also connected to the external rider car. Hydraulic cylinders at the base of the tower provide an extra measure of safety in case of a ride malfunction. Both rides were designed and manufactured by S&S Worldwide of Logan, Utah.

Famous quotes containing the words tower and/or power:
“Shall I still be loves house on the widdershin earth,
Woe to the windy masons at my shelter?
Loves house, they answer, and the tower death
Lie all unknowing of the grave sin-eater.”

Distinction lost, or gone down with the light;
The eyea watch to inward senses placed,
Not seeing, yet still having power of sight
Gives vain alarums to the inward sense”
