    I'll be visiting June 11-13 for the first time. I can't wait! I might make Steel Vengeance my #100.

    Making my first trip later in the year, after wanting to ride top thrill dragster since the day I saw it I truly am looking forward to going.

    Do we have any pro visitors to CP who can offer top tips for getting the most from a day trip?

    That sounds like you’ll have a good story for that pint but it may require more than one.

    Have you been to Dollywood?

    The PR Director and GM of the park got to test the ride out recently. Take a look:

    As a little notice, it sounds like the height restriction for Steel Vengance will be 52 inches.

    Indeed, which is odd, considering a lot of the I-Boxes don't even go that high.

    I have to wonder, as someone I think pointed out that it may have to do with the new trains RMC have created, more specifically, how they're made. Perhaps that's something to look at.

    Main advert though as well as the tagline is a complete copy of Thorpe Park's "An Island Like No Other"

    Having seen both adverts, while the taglines are similar, the commercials themselves couldn’t be more different. Thorpe’s is about what you’d expect from a regional park while the Cedar Point commercial is far more sentimental.

    Theme Park Insider just posted a ride review of the coaster. Calls it the World's Best Coaster. Height Restriction is 52 inches.

    TBH this looks like it might be the best attraction of 2018 in the United States, including Disney/Universal or otherwise (though it's always subjective).
