    Cedar point just announced this new coaster that will open this spring in Ohio. Looks like America will take back the coaster record.

    The Point Online is reporting that Cedar Point Amusement Park has announced their newest addition: a 420 ft. goliath called Top Thrill Dragster. The coaster will be the world's tallest, and fastest at 120 mph. The coaster is going to be truly terrifying in that it shoots riders up the 420 ft. incline in 4 seconds at a 90 degree angle--then sends them straight down while completing a 270 degree twist. Top Thrill Dragster will feature 6 different colored 16 passenger trains, and can handle 1,500 riders per hour, comparable to other rides in the park. The park is calling Top Thrill Dragster the world's first strata-coaster, skipping the mathematical prefix 'tetra'. The coaster will cost $25 million dollars (the same price as Millennium Force), and is being constructed by Intamin AG, the same designers of Millennium Force, Wicked Twister, and others.

    Pictures here.

    I like rides --- but 120 mph seems a tad extreme to me. Maybe I'm getting too old for this type of thrill. Tell you what - I'll watch you try it and I'll be holding that bucket you'll need when you get off. LOL

    You won't need the bucket for me. I like coasters. But I avoid all the spin and puke rides. ;)

    My kind of coaster.
    The bigger and faster, the better. :p

    Funny thing is, I'm not too thrilled with heights, but never seem to mind it on roller coasters.
