Default Top Thrill Dragster is *-W-E-E-T!!!!

The family and I made our annual 4th of July weekend trip to Cedar Point this past weekend. Last year was the intoductory year for the Top Thrill Dragster so I couldn't get on it. However, this past weekend it was up and running!! After waiting 1.5 hours I finally got on it!!! Rode it twice to be precise. First time on our train went 119 MPH and the second time we got up to a whopping 123 MPH!!! Most incredible coaster I've ever been on. Nothing like the rush of going 0 - 120 in a mear couple hundred of feet (and peaking at 420 feet in the sky to boot)!!!

For those of you not familiar with the ride or never been to Cedar Point, check out the specs:

Yeah, I was there last year and it was just opening. The line was insanely long, and so I skipped it, I think it would have freaked me out too much anyways--I stuck to fun, less insane rollercoasters such as the Corkscrew or the Gemini.
