Top Thrill Dragster
There is an elevator system that travels all the way to the top of Cedar Point's tallest roller coaster. Its gray track is very prominent in this image. You can also see the elevator doors at each catwalk level. Once, the elevator had to be used when a train, full of passengers, was launched at a speed that allowed it to stop exactly at the top of the tower! The train was balanced at the apex of this hill for several minutes until a ride operator was sent to the top of the tower. All it took was the operator's slight push on the train to get it off its perfectly balanced location.
