Well, only two years after they broke the 300ft barrier with the Millennium Force, Cedar Point is building a 420ft, 120mph launch coaster called Top Thrill Dragster. It is the first coaster to break the 400ft barrier, and will officially be known as a "stratacoaster." It will also be the fastest rollercoaster in the world with passenger trains being launched to 120mph in just four seconds  Wow! . Top Thrill Dragster will be their second new rollercoaster in two years, and this latest one has cost the park about $25 million dollars.

Hopefully I will be able to get out to Cedar Point this summer to give this thing a try, and Wicked Twister which came out last year. It looks like it will be one amazing ride!  Big thumbs up  Big thumbs up

I love Cedar Point...Been there many times.

First it was Magnum, then Millenium Force (which I waited 2 hours in line for the opening year), and now this. I gotta see it!
