We have been surely hoping that all our questions pertaining to the trip structure, rear spike, peak, pace, queue line and maker would be verified once and for all. Nevertheless, yesterday Zamperla to some degree stole Cedar Point’s thunder by releasing the facts on their site and then swiftly using them down yet again. Acquire a glimpse at our information tale posted July 31, New Specifics Verified For Top Thrill Dragster, Regrettably It Is not going to Be The Tallest Or Quickest!
We now know the journey format but still await the new name and any other particulars Cedar Place cares to share with us relating to the most very expected reimagining there has at any time been together with hopefully what the usually found “PHP” essentially indicates, the queue structure and entrance and exit.
We are nevertheless truly looking ahead to bringing you all the updates when they are declared by Cedar Position today (August 1) and our response to them. Permit us know your feelings on the Major Thrill Dragster layout by leaving us a remark beneath or on our Facebook site.

If you glimpse closely at the tweet we get to see #CP24PHP at the time again. It has been puzzling to fully grasp the meaning of PHP and now according to a online video posted to YouTube and which is embedded beneath by ElToroRyan, it seems that the letters stand for “Venture Superior Level”. Now, this has not been formally confirmed by Cedar Issue. It seemed to imply that Major Thrill Dragster will arrive at for a peak record we considered most likely in the kind of the rumored rear spike. With the ride format specifics confirmed we now know that the peak history at the moment held by Kingda Ka will not be damaged by the 420ft rear spike.
The video clip goes on to also reference the letter “NR” which were being teased in Cedar Point’s Xmas video which had been speculated as indicating “New Document” but was interesting to see that they experienced been omitted from the current tweet. No matter if Cedar Point did strategy to break the present-day height record held by Kingda Ka with a rear spike but this then turned unreachable, we had assumed that the spike would be bigger than the 420ft top rated hat.
Above the final pair of months as design work ramped up, we found a large amount of new facts which include that the new colour plan for Top Thrill Dragster will be white and dim grey in distinction with the authentic crimson and yellow. The track is currently being painted white although the observe supports and composition for the top hat is remaining painted dark gray.
It was also verified just lately that Zamperla relatively than Intamin is getting on this mammoth and superior profiled reimagining which has led to combined responses among Prime Thrill Dragster fans.
With so numerous rumors getting floated bordering the new structure, we however even now don’t have any verified responses. What we have been promised is that we will see one thing that has in no way been finished before. Some took this to suggest a 500ft rear spike, other people the addition of an additional leading hat, the extending of the first top hat. The checklist goes on. Or it could imply that Zamperla, a company formerly acknowledged for amusement rides is branching out into the earth of top rated thrill roller coasters. Right now we need to get a lot more solutions!
Cedar Issue experienced deliberately been peaceful about their designs we suppose to establish hype surrounding this big project which certainly labored but we ought to come out of currently with all the facts we want to know confirmed.
Pleasure is confident to make even even more over the coming weeks and months prior to the reopening in 2024 as perform continues on web-site.
