Yeah thats a great picture. They are working quite quickly on the station. Also that turn on Iron Dragon will be a lot more exciting with Dragster only a few feet away.

Note that the picture was not taken from atop TTD...I am not saying the basket (or helicopter, etc.) is not at the same height as TTD, but there is just no way to tell for sure..

Why would it be in the TTD section then?

Blink, look at the picture again- Remembering that TTD goes straight down from the top, and looking at the perspective on Dragster's supports (they are headed to the left) it's obvious the photo was take from the crane basket. Looks like it's about 20-30 feet west of TTD's tower.

Blink, perhaps they were trying to illustrate the height of the ride...but as ThemeDesigner stated, the spot where the photo was taken (and what I based my earlier statement on) it is outside the "bounds" of where the top hat would be since the top hat would lie in-between the two sets of tracks (go figure)...

Redman, don't you mean "inverted" top hat? ;) That is a great shot, and WOW! Is that a long ways up or what? Can't wait!

That's not THAT tall! Man, they should have built it taller. I'm rather disappointed in Cedar Point for not building something that they could be proud of.

They also just updated again with pictures of them putting in the hydraulic lanuch....

It looks like a pretty amazing piece of machinery.

Nasai, the top hat on TTD is not going to be inverted. If it was, I do not think that the ride would be as good as it will be. The air at the top is going to be kick ass.

No, you got it backwards, man. The first tophat elements had you on the inside. The two Intamin ones have one on the outside...."inverted" but no inversions.

How about "reverse" tophats? I think that's a good way to describe them without all the confusion.

You guyz confuse me lol. Anyway those shots are awesome. The hydrolic motor is amazing, it's huge and damn, alot of work and physics have gone into that. That pic of the station is also awesome, probably from a helicopter right? Good too see the station already underway.
