Top Thrill Dragster, a roller coaster that is 130m tall and goes 120mph!!
Top Thrill Dragster is a steel accelerator roller coaster located at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. When built in 2003, it was the first full circuit roller coaster to exceed 400 feet (120 m) in height, and for two whole years, it was the tallest roller coaster in the world! Top Thrill Dragster, along with Kingda Ka, are the only strata coasters in existence.
When it debuted, it set four new records:
- World’s tallest complete circuit roller coaster
- World’s tallest roller coaster
- World’s tallest roller coaster drop
- World’s fastest roller coaster.
Well, considering its top speed is 120 mph (190kph), I don’t see a reason why not to try this at some point in my life. 😀 Watch the video and decide if you want to try it or not!
