# 5. Tower of Terror , Dreamworld
Just the name of the ride is enough to elicit fear from most of us, but those who see the ride in person may immediately walk away in a panic. This ride is located at Dreamworld in Gold Coast, Australia, but it is anything but a dream. Riders won’t be able to sleep through this 6.5 second zero-gravity, 377 foot drop at 100 miles per hour.
