Top Thrill Dragster
Worlds tallest at 420 feet (129m)
Worlds fastest at 120MPH (194KPH)(level acceleration)

Oh, and this

Worlds 2nd tallest at 310 feet (95m)
Worlds 2nd fastest at 95MPH (152.85KPH)

Both at CEDAR POINT in Sandusky, Ohio. Anyone else go here often? It's worth the trip no matter where you live http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Yeah I hear what you mean Stormer...originally from North Olmsted (20 minutes west of Cleveland) but we have a summer place out on Catawba Island, not too far from Cedar Point.

Only 2 problems with the Top Thrill Dragster:

1) at least a 4 hour wait in line
2) it gets stuck at the top quite regularly.

I'm in Gallia County, not that far away. I love coasters, but hate waiting over an hour for one ride. Still, I may have to take a trip to Cedar Point this summer for that. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I live in Columbus, but I haven't been to Cedar Point for a long time. I am from Cincy, so I was always more of a King's Island guy http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Last time I went was a couple weeks ago on a saturday, and the wait times were amazing... Only 25 minutes for the dragster, and about 1 hour and 20 minutes for M Force.

The Dragster likes to break down, alot, and I did see it get to the top and roll back down once when I was there. I would **** myself if I was falling backwards straight down from 420 feet. It's insane though, it's a totally different ride from anything else.
