TOLEDO, Ohio — Cedar Point announced Tuesday morning the future of the park’s Top Thrill Dragster ride, a coaster that closed in 2021 following an injury at the park.

The new ride, Top Thrill 2, is expected to open during the summer 2024 season. According to the park’s website, the new ride will be the world’s tallest and fastest triple-launch strata coaster.
