Top Thrill Dragster

Though its cars are made to look like roaring dragsters, the newest roller coaster at Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, Ohio, feels more like a space launch than a drag race. The $25 million steel coaster is the world's tallest and fastest, reaching speeds of 120 mph within 4 seconds. A hydraulic acceleration system, only the second to appear in a coaster, catapults riders to nearly 420 feet and propels cars as fast on the way up as on the way down. In all, it only takes about 30 seconds to run the 2,800-foot-long track--but we guarantee you'll feel like you've been somewhere.

If I wasn't the type that's terrified of heights, I'd definately try this. The speed is great, I don't mind that at all. Especially if it's one like this, thats what makes a good rollarcoaster. I think what poeple really like about new rollarcoasters is the drops, thats the part i hate the most.
