    Lap Bar Launch Smoothness Too short

    It's a breath taking coaster!! The feeling you get on this coaster is indescribable! It is obviously short but I honestly don't mind(I know many others do).

    Launch Fun Intensity Too short

    The launch is such an incredible experience. Probably my favorite moment on any coaster. Yeah, it's a short ride, but it sure packs a lot of excitement into about 17 seconds. Top thrill, for sure! Cedar Point does a great job maintaining this coaster to ensure a smooth ride. I've ridden this dozens of times, and I don't think I've ever felt the slightest rattle or vibration.

    Every time I think about my coaster rankings, I debate this ride in my head. How can I still have it so high on my list? I rode it originally back in 2004, which was a time the world barely knew that such levels of thrill were even possible. Now almost 20 years later and close to 150 more coasters under my belt, how do I still rank this in my top 5. It simply comes down to that initial adrenaline rush. The first time I ever rode this, it was an epiphany. I had ridden other launched coasters at that point--Mr. Freeze is at my home park of SFSL. But this is a whole other level of insanity. The launch is just nuts. Just when you think you can't go any faster it keeps on going. It is FAST. The forces make your body react with adrenaline. It is such a rush. The hill and the height are barely even an factor compared to the launch. Is it 1 trick pony? Perhaps, but it is the best trick I've ever experienced on a coaster. It is super short? Of course it is. But I can't think of a better way to spend 15 seconds with my clothes on.

    Nice surprise! Launch Intensity

    Credit #63 Pros: -Seriously one of my favorite coasters. Ever. Kingda Ka doesn't even compare to this monster of a ride. Cons: -The fact that I liked this more than Steel Vengeance. Sorry SteVe fans! Also it made me cry a little, in a good way- because I was a little scared of big scary stratas and i cried of happiness a bit afterwards because I ended up loving the ride- hell, it would probably be my #1 if I got a rollback lol (Though I don't think anything can beat my precious El Toro)

    Lap Bar Launch Masterpiece Reliability

    Incredible, smooth ride WITH LAP BARS (Tallest coaster in the world with lap bars ;)). Would definitely wait any amount of time to go on this, especially since this ride is typically open less than half of the time nowadays (excluding its current closure for the rest of 2021)

    Lap Bar Intensity Too short

    This ride is really intense and really fun, but it's like 25% of a ride. Length is its main issue.

    Lap Bar Launch Intensity Too short Reliability

    This is currently the tallest and fastest coaster I've ridden. That launch is insane and extremely forceful. However that's about all this ride does. This is one of only a few coasters I consider too short because it really only has 2 elements. However, just for the launch alone, this ride is excellent

    Launch Too short Layout Reliability

    This ride is a jackhammery, boring mess. The only good part is the launch. The tophat is rough and not very exciting.

    Launch Intensity Too short Reliability

    The line was so long for the first 5-10 years that it was tough to justify the ride time. Top Thrill is hardly a roller coaster and more like the world's best and most intense flat ride. It's also unreliable and I often wait until the afternoon when it's warmed up. For all of those reasons, I usually pass it on my way to Magnum or Valraven.

    The intensity of the launch is off the charts. Unfortunately, the reliability of this ride is terrible. It closes at least 3 times every day. Awesome ride though.

    First Drop Lap Bar Launch Too short

    I operated this ride so I'm biased. The best launch on the continent, only a lapbar, and what a view! Baby I'm Ready to Go again!

    Launch Fun Intensity Too short

    This was my 50th credit! TTD was my first true strata coaster (Superman Escape from Krypton isn't a real one), and it rocked! My one and only ride was in the front row, which was even better. Even though the ride is short, every part of it is awesome. The launch is intense and the wind in your face is exhilarating. The transition to the vertical track is intense, and flying upwards is a cool feeling. You get a brief moment to take in the scenery, then you're back twisting down the 270 degree drop, which also provides good forces. Then it's over so soon, however, which is why this gets a star knocked off.

    It's smoother and the restraints are better, but the Launch doesn't quite reach Kingda Ka's. I also miss the large floater hill.

    Fun Harness Intensity Too short

    The first Strata. Made by Intamin this beast is insane. The 120 mph hydraulic launch is one of the most forceful moments on any coaster out there. One of the few rides that can be less then 20 seconds long and still be worth an hour wait. The restraints are awesome too. Only a lap bar on a Strata is awesome. Sure it would be nice for it to be a little longer but either way this thing is crazy.

    Theming Lap Bar Launch Too short Dead spots

    A one trick pony with a strong launch but not much else. It's a good gimmick, but it doesn't feel like a full coaster. A full layout like Formula Rossa, while impractical in the available space, would have been a better experience - I'd sacrifice Iron Dragon for a layout after the tophat.

    Lap Bar Launch Intensity

    9.7 out of 10! WOW, not the best at Cedar Point, but my favorite. Got to ride 7 times over two days and every time was even better. What a view at the top to see the whole park. What speed, I think know how the Flash feels running.

    Location Launch Too short

    My number one for well over a decade; TTD is a very simple, no nonsense blast. Lap bars are a massive plus over almost all the other Intamin Accelerators. Simple but very effective theming and banging 90's alt-rock on the front gate. Ready to go? :-)

    Location Launch Intensity Too short

    Top Thrill Dragster is the best coaster of its kind. This coaster is amazingly smooth, fast, and surprisingly comfortable. What also makes this launch coaster amazing are the lap bars. It is comfortable and allows you to enjoy your ride by putting your hands up. To me, it is pretty short, but that’s how all those types of roller coasters have to be made because of its speed. What surprised me the most was how it was so much more faster than I expected. Top Thrill Dragster, is a fun, adrenaline rushing coaster, that’ll leave you breathless.

    First Drop Lap Bar Launch Too short

    Top Thrill Dragster is the most terrifying coaster I've ever ridden, and I love it. It always makes my palms sweaty and makes me hold on as tight as I can. Short, but sweet. Pure adrenaline for 20 seconds.

    Location Launch Intensity Rattle Too short Discomfort

    Meh. A gimmicky one trick pony that somehow, due to its extreme rattle, manages to be uncomfortable as well. It's a rite of passage, but not valuable for much else.

    Fun Masterpiece

    This "one-trick-pony" gives you a 30-seconds kick of sensations. The setting in the middle of the park and the lap bars are a big plus compared to Kingda Ka.
