Could someone please post a list ( or a link to a list ) of all the themeing that Top Thrill Dragster is supposed to have? I only know of a few, such as the tires and engines on the back of the train, and the countdown lights on the tower.

yeah...there are stadium bleechers for spectators and the scardy cats.....there is smoke that comes up from the train. they have lights on the tower..but i have yet to see them work..or maybe i just miss them.....as u said before there is the sound of a engine roaring and the tire. i guess thats it..and the queue has comparison signs..that compare TTD to real drag racing....you can see every train launch from about anywhere in the queue....(Great Ride=Long Wait)

Too bad they don't use the bleachers as a queueing system. There's a park in Korea that has a large tent filled with chairs as a "queue." You take a number, take a seat, then walk to the station when your number is called.

Don't forget the Christmas Tree next to the "launch pad", the drag racing car in front of the station, throughout the queue you can hear these announcers talking about the ride in a mock commercial for the ride. It starts off with "SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY!...." and goes on about the ride. And how can anyone forget the kick-arse theme song in the station? Definitely a song worth acquiring. :)

Let's See Here:
Real Dragster sitting in front of the station
Winner's circle after you get off the ride
A "Pick-Up-Window" for you picture after you order it (not sure what to file this under, but it's different than the other coasters)
A Finish Line
Dragster Tree a starting line.
White lights lighting up the tower, and tree lights on the tower.
Trains are dragster themed (when things aren't falling off) ;)
Signs in que line all talking about TTD compared to a real Dragster.
Music and Dragster annoucements in line.
All the starting launch stuff (engine noise, smoke, etc.)
Bleachers (including food stand underneath).
Midway is now redone to look like highway fencing.
MANY flags are up along the launch track.
Radar Gun and sign up by the tower saying, "world's Fastest Coaster" And Shows the speed of it.
The loading station...unique itself
Unloading station...also unique.
That's all I can think of off the top of my head :)

The radar gun display is currently not there. I think it has something to do with it displaying "6" all the time. I thought that was a nice touch, so I'd like to see it actually working someday.
