The final piece of track was hoisted and secured into place on Sunday. Park officials say it joins an already existing tower that is also 420-foot-tall.
Top Thrill 2 will debut in 2024. Once completed, experts say the new ride will be “the world’s tallest and fastest triple-launch strata roller coaster.”
Here’s how it will go: The new coaster will have three launches, the second being a backward launch at 101 miles-per-hour, the final one catapulting riders to speeds of 128 miles-per-hour. It will include a 90-degree vertical climb of 420 feet, equalling the height of the original Top Thrill Dragster.
