Riders soar as high as nearby Cleveland's Justice Center before dropping 400 ft (122 m) at a 90 degree angle at a speed of approximately 120 mph (191 km/h).
Cedar Point maintains as much secrecy as possible about its upcoming new rides.
During the 2002 season, visitors to Cedar Point walked right by the future site of Top Thrill Dragster without knowing its extensive foundation work was proceeding behind a fence.
Upon its completion, the ride was the tallest and fastest roller coaster in the world.
The ride was surpassed in both height and speed upon the completion of Kingda Ka at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey.
It was not until after the park had closed for the season in autumn 2002 and the rising steel frame of Top Thrill Dragster finally became visible outside the park, that awareness of the new ride became obvious and announcements were made by the park's owner Cedar Fair.
