Cedar Point's Top Thrill Dragster was featured in an article in IT magazine Network World. The article focused on the technical side of the coaster talking about the computing power behind the coaster.

I'm surprised that the speed range going over the top is as great as 7 to 15 mph. 15 mph is going to give dramaticly more air than 7 mph.

I hate it when they call it "the Dragster" or "the Millennium Force." You only get "the" in your name if you're a pro wrestler like "The Rock" or something.

I agree with you Jeff. Also, Monty Jasper is now the vice president of Cedar Fair and made the decision to build "the Dragster".
Good article none the less.

You two seem a little too picky with the names. I think saying Dragster is a lot more convienient than saying the full name "Top Thrill Dragster", especially when it comes to writing articles. Back to the article at hand, I didn't know of all the specs of this coaster (I guess I should have said Roller Coaster) other than it's height and speed.

It's not "Dragster" we're taking issue with. I think the full name is stupid. It's "the Dragster" or "the Millennium Force." Right, The Gomez?

Well, I guess I'll be the one to ask. Why did they choose TTD instead of KK? Was this during the downtime?
