Mäch Tower is a Moser's Rides Gravity Tower located in the Oktoberfest section of Busch Gardens Williamsburg.
Originally planned to debut in the spring alongside Beste Brezeln und Bier and numerous other alterations to the Oktoberfest hamlet, Mäch Tower faced months of delays throughout the first half of 2011. Ultimately, the attraction did not open to the public until August 18th, 2011.
When it debuted, Mäch Tower featured an onboard audio system which would play music throughout the ride's ascent and a seat vibration effect that would trigger immediately before the drop. A POV featuring the on-ride audio can be found below.
Mach Tower is typically converted into an observation tower named Nächt Tower for the park's annual holiday event, Christmas Town.
