Cedar Point stunned thrill-seekers yet again in 2003 with Top Thrill Dragster. Reaching a stratospheric 420 feet tall (128 meters) and topping out at an unheard of speed of 120 mph (197kph). This new steel screamer helped Cedar Point reclaim the title of owning the tallest and fastest roller coaster in the world.

Riders begin their epic journey aboard this whopping 42-story screamer by securing themselves into ultra-cool trains that resemble top fuel dragsters. The train then moves into a "starting line" position, where it is launched forward, reaching 120 mph in approximately four seconds. The train then zooms straight up the 420-foot-tall hill on track that rotates 90 degrees, crests the coaster's apex and then free falls back to Earth. But hold on, this isn't your father's roller coaster. As the train races 400 feet to the ground, the track twists an unbelievable 270 degrees what a rush! Riders then return to the station to begin regaling their friends with stories of the greatest ride of their lives. Designed by world-renowned coaster manufacturer Intamin AG of Wollerau, Switzerland, Top Thrill Dragster is located directly between two other Cedar Point legends: the Magnum XL-200 and Millennium Force roller coasters. Top Thrill Dragster was voted an impressive No. 9 in the 2008 Golden Ticket awards for the "Best Steel Roller Coaster in the World" category. Riders must be at least 52 inches tall to ride Top Thrill Dragster.
Cedar Point is the roller coaster capital of the world- it is in Sandusky, Ohio. For more information, go to the channel page of this video.
