You wouldn't think a city called "Sandusky, Ohio" would be home to one of the best thrill parks, but it certainly is. Their latest creation is usually a superlative in one of many factors (innovation, height, speed, design, propulsion technology, etc.) until somebody else raises it a notch.
Ever since I heard of this place I've wanted to take a trip. One of our pilot friends offered to fly us up and back in the same day in his 4 passenger (+2 pilots) twin turbo-prop plane, and we jumped at the chance.
Top Thrill Dragster is one of those rides you'll never forget. I've ridden hundreds of coasters. I expected a lot, but I was nowhere prepared what it delivered. Absolutely mind blowing. It felt like I was in the Spies Like Us centrifuge scene.
PS: Sorry, looks like SmugMug couldn't extract my captions from the video files. I'll get them up eventually.
