That's at Cedar Point, in Sandusky Ohio. I went right after they added the Magnum XL (200ft drop), but haven't been since. It'll be time for another trip soon.

Re: New 420ft 120mph rollercoaster

Dude we went last fall and the top thrill dragster (the pictured coaster) is totally sweet. Talk about accelleration G forces. Every time you take off it is unreal. Part of what makes it cool is the uncertainty of it. The addition of acceleration stops once you start going up. Sometimes it doesn't make it all the way over and then falls back down backwards. Of course, this is prepared for, so they stop, ask if anyone wants to get off, and then they take off again. Some people actually get off the thing at that point. Quite a blast.
The Magnum XL I think is now number 2 for the thrills, though I would have to say that the Magnum is the nicest one to ride for overall thrill + comfort.

I am all set. I'd probably fall out anyway (minimum height jokes not required)

if you can't convince them, confuse them.
