new Cedar Point ride!

did anyone see this thing yet? the Thrill Top Dragster, it is a new roller coater that goes from 0mph to 120mph in less than 4 seconds. it then goes straight up 420' and then backdown in a twisting free fall. then it stops in the same distance you took off with. it is suppose to be like riding in a drag car on the take off and the chute coming out to stop you.....only you go up 420' the straight back down in the middle of the event.

here is a link:

Re: new Cedar Point ride!

Sparty,
Wow, that sounds like a rush...LOL, I've tried the drop of death rides before, and the reverse bungi ones where you start on the ground and get shot up into the air, and they were both fun. 420' though, holy krap, I think the drop of death one was only a few stories high. If I ever find myself in Ohio, I'll have to check it out.
