Forgive me if im wrong but the tallest Drop Tower in the UK is Apocalypse at Drayton Manor AT 177ft
Jolly Roger as stated on its own warning boards says that the height is 140ft
Although the park has confirmed that their planning application was successful (and remains valid) for a 60m tower installation, the new attraction is the 40m (131′) Fabbri “Mega Drop” version named “Jolly Roger” – which is presented with a loose pirate theme
The ride hasn’t been purchased by the park, but is on long term lease and represents part of a three year/£3.5 m investment plan for the park. UK Park News has been informed by PWH that the intention is to purchase the larger tower at some point. It’s unclear why the original purchase did not transpire, however we have been advised that Jolly Roger will remain until then.

There was only one actor in the ride section when I went on and a few more in the station/walkthrough sections, but the ride doesn't really need them IMO.
