Default Top Thrill Dragster

Tizbad and I went to Cedar Point yesterday, and I finaly got to ride that beast, MAN what a rush! If your going, wait for the front seat, it's worth it. We rode it twice, once front once second. the front was a lot better. BTW did we decide on a date for OSO day yet?

This must be a roller coaster.

Have you ever tried sitting in the last row? In the front, I feel like the rest of the cars are holding back from allowing us to go down the slope. In the back, the rest of the cars pull you over the hump and down the slope. You start to accelerate while your still approaching the crest of the hill. I find getting whipped over the crest of the drop is strange and heart stopping.

It's techically a roller coaster, but not in the traditional sense. 0-120 in 4 seconds, straight up 400+ feet to where you just barely make it over the crest, then straight down accelerating back to 120. It's not a long ride, but it's un-friggin-believable.

I have commented on this before and as a lot of you know we dock at CP. The first time we went on it we were like kids running back into line to ride again.
What a totally amazing rush of acceleration, speed and what the @$#$ just happened to me factor!
