History[edit | edit source]

This tower was originally paired with a Turbo Drop tower, which opened in 2001 at VisionLand (now Alabama Splash Adventure). The attraction was named StratosFear Screamer. The Turbo Drop tower was later removed due to financial problems, leaving a single tower.[1][2] The removed tower now operates as Down Time at Lake Compounce.[3] Following the closure of the amusement park after the 2011 season, StratosFear Screamer was sold.

The attraction was sent to Darien Lake, where it was renamed Blast Off. It opened in 2013 on the spot previously occupied by Raging Seas.[4]
