Top Thrill Dragster

Dragster currently operates with six 18-passenger trains at once!  But, it hasn't always been that way.  When the ride opened, there were only 12 seats on each train.   The coaster started with a fake engine, a huge decorative spoiler, and two massive drag racing tires at the back of the train.  These details made the train look like a Top Fuel Dragster car, but it meant that the back car only had room for two seats.  The wheels, wings, and engine were soon removed and replaced with two seats.  For Dragster's first few months, it ran with just four cars on each train.  The fifth car was added after the park became more comfortable with the ride's operation.
