 Review of Top Thrill Dragster @ Cedar Point
1 Rating Posted by: obi1sgirl on 8/12/2005 12:32:00 AM
This is not a ride to be missed. Recommended mostly to those seeking a (huge) rush, and not for the faint of heart. The feeling you get in the initial launch is just indescribable. You have to experience it yourself. The part where I really scream is when youre 420 feet up looking STRAIGHT down to the ground. Ho-ly #*&@. When Im in the train in launch position, I find myself bouncing in my seat, giggling with anticipation. Few rides do that to a person.

The downtime detracts from the ride a bit. Even the employees admit Dragster was built before the technology was perfected, and theyre the ones who have to face the ire of impatient patrons (according to one poor soul, people actually throw objects at them sometimes). The ride is also incredibly short - if you want a more true roller coaster experience with the rush, Millennium Force is the one for you.

Be warned: on rainy days, the line will take longer than usual due to how exactly placed the launching train must be, and how hard it is to get the train into that place when the train wheels are wet. ¬_¬

Great review, with some interesting (albeit somewhat depressing) insight to the employee viewpoint of the design flaws. Youve captured the thrill of TTD and its element of anticipation beautifully. Oh, and welcome to the site - looking forward to more of your reviews!

I am - Turbo Drop on Power Tower scares the crap out of me, as does going up Millennium Forces hill during the day when I can actually see around me. As long as Im moving, its typically okay. ^__^ The train doesnt stay high on Dragster long enough for me to get freaked out.

420 feet, just like it is stated in the review.
