Falcon's Fury is part of the 2014 plans for the theme park down in Tampa, and what makes it unique when compared to other drop tower type rides is its seating configuration. Sure the thing rises to well over 300-feet—like 335-feet to be exact—but when the seating contraption reaches the top is when the fun begins.

It's actually more of a contest, and this round sees an airport facility in the running. No, it's not the infamous Larry Craig bathroom at MSP, but the regular stalls at Tampa International Airport.

We love oversized checks and construction equipment, and both of those things are now slowly making their way to Tampa International Airport. In total the airport is planning to spend around $30 million to refresh and update some of its terminals, and we’re sure we’re not the only ones who enjoy an airport concourse with a fresh coat of paint.

Some of the airport signs, restrooms, and flooring are approaching 40 years old, so officials want to make sure everything is renovated before it's too late. Some of the updates have been made a priority, as they’re hoping to get at least half of the bathrooms fixed up before the end of next summer.
