Top Thrill Dragster

2) Top Thrill Dragster - The $25-million hydraulic launch coaster accelerates from 0 to 120 mph in 4 seconds as it rockets toward a signature 420-foot-tall top hat element. When Top Thrill Dragster debuted in 2003 at Cedar Point, it was the first complete circuit coaster to break the 400-foot height barrier and ranks as the second tallest coaster in the world behind its younger sibling, Kingda Ka at Six Flags Great Adventure. Intamin built similar but shorter accelerator coasters at Knott's Berry Farm (Xcelerator) and Hersheypark (Storm Runner).
