 Review of Top Thrill Dragster @ Cedar Point
-2 Rating Posted by: yfz450 on 8/14/2004 1:07:00 AM
Somewhat revised review - No longer my favorite ride in the park (Thanks Maverick), mostly because of it's length. This is the shortest yet tallest ride in the park. On to the review - I remember waiting in line and thinking that I'm crazy for going on this monster. Just waiting for the launch, you can feel the sweat start accumulating all over your body. You think, "What wrong choices did I make to end up here..." The launch, although less than four seconds long, feels like it lasts forever. It's incredible how powerful it is. Because the speed takes you back so much, the lift up the hill is less intimidating than it would be on a normal coaster. When you start cresting the top of the hill, the chance of a rollback never leaves the back of your mind, and makes it that much more exciting. Please do yourself a favor and take a look around once you get to the top of this mammoth, because the view is incredible. The drop happens almost too quickly, but is still an experience on it's own. Maybe the best thing about Top Thrill, is the accomplished feeling it seems like people have after they ride it. Maverick, Raptor, and even Millenium don't give people the same satisfaction. This next statement may be obvious, but it's a must ride at Cedar Point. Still #2, only behind Maverick.

Well, that was a weak review. I mean, if its the "best ride in the world" (those are your words- not mine), cant you say something more than awesome launce... and what makes this line so special?

If everyone wasnt so into holding their breath because of the constant chance the train wont clear the hill, it wouldnt be so fun, now would it. The cheering, clapping and gasping is not for fun (for most people)...trust me.

I really, really thought that I was going to have a rollback. I mean it seemed real close when the train almost came to a stop, which was a bit frightening.

The line is special cause it isnt boring, you get to watch the thing excellerate and try to make it over the hill. People sit there watching it just for fun. Also you see iron dragon come around the corner and sometimes they go by at the same time. I thought the line was fun(my opinion not yours) the launch is really intense and instantly brought it to my top ride(just like the drop on Mf instantly brought it to your top ten) I just felt like the peopel before me who reviewed the ride said everything about it. Sorry if I dissapointed you

Well, Im just saying that most lines offer a good glimpse, but TTDs want too special. The Incredible Hulk, RRC and DD have great queues, but other than that, no other line added to the rating.

I would have still gave it a ten even with the line being bad. and it still would have been my number 1 ride

I dont understand why you give me a bad review and I had more words than the person above me.

Well, first off, look at the review comments for Gamling. Now that youve updated it, it is better and worthy of at least a neutral position on the slider.
