Top Thrill Dragster at Cedar Point is the tallest and fastest roller coaster in the world. Its drag-racing themed trains rocket from 0-120 miles per hour in just a few seconds, climb a 420-foot tower, and then descend to earth again. It's the ride that finally makes the question of "Is Superman: The Escape a roller coaster?" a moot point.
Unfortunately, Top Thrill Dragster has also suffered its share of mechanical trouble. That gave me an opportunity that was too good to pass up...
Note that I recut a couple of shots, so this one is the final version.
Music: Shut Down, by The Beach Boys
To play this version, you need QuickTime 6. It's still encoded using the 3IVX codec, but the new codec properly encodes files as MPEG-4 so that QuickTime 6 can play them. But you need QuickTime 6, or you need the 3IVX codec.
QuickTime/3IVX - 9 Mb

"Broadcast" Schedule: This movie will be here a while. I know better than to try and say when I'll change it.
