Valve source of Dragster problem

Tuesday, 10 June 2003

Top Thrill Dragster remained closed yesterday as Cedar Point worked to replace a valve in the prototype hydraulic system, the Sandusky Register reports. Cedar Point spokeswoman Janice Witherow told the Register the park had to order the part, which arrived Friday.

Cedar Point did determined the ride's cable, which broke on May 26, was a "fluke" and nothing more than a bad cable.
