Cedar Point plans new ride to replace former Top Thrill Dragster
Cedar Point has plans to turn the former Top Thrill Dragster roller coaster into what the amusement park is calling “A new formula for thrills”
A video posted by Cedar Point this week shows the framework of what was once one of the tallest and fastest coasters in the U.S., sending riders up 420 feet with a 120-mile-per-hour launch.
The ride closed in August of 2021 when a piece of metal fell off and seriously injured a woman waiting in line for the ride. Top Thrill first launched in 2003 and officially retired last year with park officials promising a "reimagination" of the ride.
An update on Cedar Point’s website promises what the park says will be one-of-a-kind addition in 2024.
The video includes no narration providing additional details of what’s to come.
