The SeaWorld SkyTower is an observation tower located in the SeaWorld Orlando theme park complex constructed in 1973. This ride was the first and only ride that was an opening day attraction. The tower is the tallest observation tower in Florida and contains a double decker rotating pod. SkyTower is lit with an array of Electronic Theater Control's LEDs as of February 2013.
On December 22, 2015, at the height of the Christmas travel season, the SkyTower became stuck, 200 feet up. There were about 50 people on the ride at the time, and it took two hours to get all passengers down. This was the first known incident on the ride.
