The '''ToonFest Tower''' is the tower of silliness for ToonFest hosted every year. By defeating [[Cogs|Cog]] dummies with [[Flippy]]'s pies, [[Toons]] can speed up, slow down, and reverse the direction of the platforms around the tower.
 
 
==Appearances==
 
In [[ToonFest 2014]], the ToonFest Tower makes its appearance for the very first time. [[Alec Tinn]] conducted the [[ToonFest Hot Air Balloon]] that allowed Toons to ride to the top of the tower's platform and view the fireworks.
 
 
During [[April Toons Week]] in 2015, the ToonFest Tower returns once again the same way it looked in 2014 renamed as "BBQ Tower" in [[Barbecue Headquarters]] as a prank pulled by the [[Toontown Rewritten Team]].
 
 
Starting with [[ToonFest 2015]] onwards, the ToonFest Tower returns with a brand new model that is much larger.
 
 
In [[ToonFest 2017]], the ToonFest logo was replaced with the new logo that debuted the same year.

At the bottom are four rotating disks similar to the merry-go-round that used to be in [[Minnie's Melodyland]] (in ''Toontown Online'' Beta) colored yellow, blue, and red with each getting smaller. Each platform spins the opposite direction of the one larger than it. At the center of the four platforms in a blue and red cupcake, with a pillow stuck out of the top. On top of the pillow is a blue hat-like object with four party streamers connected to it. Out of the hat is a stem which connects to the [[ToonFest 2014]] logo and the platform where Toons will watch the fireworks. Atop the viewing platform is a party hat connected by two gloves.

The rest is the same as ToonFest 2014, minus the ToonFest logo lacking the "2014" for obvious reasons. As the event went on, a shop with [[Token Takers]] was opened inside, allowing Toons to deposit their [[ToonFest Tokens]] and receive special limited edition items in exchange.

New ToonFest Tower

The ToonFest Tower is a large tower of silliness centered around the ToonFest Grounds. By throwing pies at a Cog dummy, Toons can speed up, slow down, and reverse the direction of the platforms around the tower. Inside the tower is where Token Takers sell all sorts of exclusive prizes.

Design

At the bottom are four rotating disks composed of a merry-go-round colored yellow, blue, and red with each getting smaller. Each platform spins the opposite direction of the one larger than it. At the center of the four platforms in a blue and red cupcake, with a pillow stuck out of the top. On top of the pillow is a blue hat-like object with four party streamers connected to it. Out of the hat is a stem which connects to the ToonFest logo and a platform that Toons can stand on if they somehow manage to get there via means of glitching. Atop the viewing platform is a party hat connected by two gloves.

The tower returned for ToonFest 2015 with a different design of a larger blue and red cupcake consisting of four locked doors, and giant ToonFest tokens placed on top replacing the pillow. Following ToonFest 2017, the logo was changed due to Toontown Rewritten's rebrand. The ToonFest Tower became the central location of where Toons can purchase brand new clothing, accessories, and other exclusive ToonFest-related items.
