Yeah, but only if they dont keep their head back. IM sure the ride ops will make sure your head is back for this one. Maybe they will install a head restraint for troublesome riders.... the possibilities are endless....

Give me a break. Do you think either Intamin or CF would build a coaster that was unsafe? Seriously, man. Do you think they want to face the lawsuits?
Dragster has no more acceleration than your average impulse or Premier Launcher. The little Wildcat at CP still has the strongest Gs. Besides, a coaster currently operates that launches with TWICE as much force as Dragster.

You have a better chance of getting hurt while typing on your computer than you do getting hurt riding this or any read UNLESS you have some preexisting medical condition, which hopefully you would know about.
You're right. A multi-million-dollar company has spent 3 years and $25 million planning a massive steel ride, but they probably forgot to test it to see if it's safe or not. Probably every single rider will implode as soon as their foot touches the floor of the car.

The rate of exceleration and the g-forces exerted on the rider are no greater than other lauched coasters already in existance. Four seconds is actually quite a long time...find a clock or watch and count along with it.
Yah I know the 4 seconds is a pretty long time, but just the fact that your going 120 MPH, I mean something hits you during the launch, your pretty much screwed, your head isnt back against the headrest (if you launch before the green light, Xcelerator does that always, and you could be getting ready to put your head against the restraint, but it's to late). I almost think Cedar Point/Intamin are begging for a lawsuit. Espically if someone happens to falloff, which is possible.
I am not kidding, I seriously think someone will get hurt on this ride, I'm not sure how, but something just is telling me someone will. I hope to God no one does, but just something bout this ride is telling me something is going to happen. I do hope however I am wrong.

Top Thrill Dragster is safe. Since you are obviously a Six Flags MM fan, I'm sure you would do anything to have your park stand alone with the record, but since you don't you're trying to scare us. Brilliant tactic, I say, brilliant.
