Top Thrill Dragster Is 10« Go Back Sunday, September 29th, 2013
If you told me 10 years ago that I'd be working here, I probably would have laughed at you.
But not because it's funny - it's because I would have never dreamed I'd be in the position I'm in today. The reason why Top Thrill Dragster is so significant to me is because I was here for the media preview on May 1, 2003 (there's an embarrassing photo of my ride, which I'm not quite ready to share).
Things were rocky back then - new technology, new heights, more world-firsts for Cedar Point. I even remember how finicky she was that day, after a nasty storm hit the area the night before. I only got 1 ride in and then had to drive all the way back to Wisconsin to report on it.
But it was worth it.
It's the shortest ride experience in the park, but it has the most punch. If you get off this ride and think, "that sucked," you're doing it wrong. :)
Fast-forward to now. We've learned a lot about the ride, our maintenance team has worked out the kinks and hey, I'm here now!
And it gives me great pleasure to share the latest PointCast with you. Go behind the scenes and see how Top Thrill Dragster is able to remain one of our star attractions.
