Top of the World (amusement ride)

Top of the World is the name of a visitor attraction in Geiselwind, Germany.

The 95 meter high Gyro tower has the claim of being the tallest transportable amusement ride in the world. However, the tower hasn't been moved in recent years, and is now placed permanently in the amusement park "Freizeit-Land Geiselwind". Its circular gallery can accommodate up to 132 people, and can be raised and rotated to provide a spectacular view.
