Exclamation The Ride of Your Life

Got this in a forwarded mail.........This is in Ohio...Last picture says it all........With a record-breaking height of 420-feet and record-breaking speed of 120 mph, Top Thrill Dragster delivers on its promise of thrilling riders this summer at Cedar Point





i wouldn't go near 100m from it

P.S: Mods, i tried searching for rollercoaster, but found no results. If you think the last pic is offensive, please remove it....but i think you should leave it as such!

That is one killer ride man! Cedar point is good fun, i made a trip there a few years ago, but this one is literally over the hill.

I just love these roller coasters and try every single one that i come across. Though i would not wait in line at a restaurant, for a roller coaster ride, i do, every single time. the thrill, the exhilaration, the high are great.

Man,

When driving across the USA we went a little out of our way to make it over to Cedar Point, but when we got there they said they were going to be closed for the rest of the summer! :(

Atleast i got to keep my lunch.

This sure beats paragliding any day, but I think I would be too scared to try it. Prefer hanging from a boat with a parachute any day

and here is a tragic news from another ohio theme park. I am not surprised, with the kind of forces these rides put on one's system.

Really sad. May his soul rest in peace.
Cedar Point is one place I'd been wanting to visit during my 2 year stay in OH, but plans never materialized. My brother did visit the place 10 years ago, and he loved it.
