Is there a Moore's Law for roller coasters?
Ohio's own Cedar Point
has announced it's newest record-breaking roller coaster - the Top Thrill Dragster. Here are the high points (pun intended):
- a 420-foot tower - the first coaster ever to top 400 feet
- top speed of 120mph - in 4 seconds
- a 90-degree turn at the top of the tower and an almost vertical drop back down
Downside - the whole thing lasts a mere 30 seconds. But I bet it's a fun 30 seconds. Can't wait to go.
