Rachel Hawes Obituary – Cedar Point, Ohio
During a visit to Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio, Rachel Hawes was on the Top Thrill Dragster, which is arguably the world’s second tallest roller coaster. According to the gyroscope, the tower of tritons is a bit over four hundred feet high. It is a fusion of a rotor and a kinematic train, giving the ride a top speed of 120 mph. The Top Thrill Dragster, in operation for 19 seasons, was announced to be retired for good in August of 2021.
At least one person was killed and another was injured in the incident. The Ohio Department of Agriculture conducted a thorough investigation into the event and a 620 page report was released. Some of the most interesting tidbits from the report include the fact that the Top Thrill Dragster has been closed for good, although the park has refused to release any further details about the accident. While it is not the most popular attraction at the park, the Top Thrill Dragster remains a hotspot for thrill seekers. A spokesperson for the park said the company has not been able to provide further details on the accident and is awaiting the results of an independent third-party investigation.
However, the most interesting part of the entire incident was the ride’s name and the fact that it was the first time the Top Thrill Dragster has been tested under such a close scrutiny. Apparently, half the bolts were loose, allowing the metal bracket to break free from the ride. This is an unusual occurrence, as the rails are normally attached to the car. In addition, the car itself is not as solid as it once was.
As the name suggests, the Tower of tritons was the name of a gimmick, as it was actually two gimmicks in one: an L-shaped bracket that hovered over the track and a tidbit of metal, the tiniest of which was the smallest possible, albeit it was the size of a man’s hand.
The other notable fact is that the most expensive item in the park was the aforementioned tidbit, the tower of tritons. One of the most exciting things about this is that the tidbit is still on the park’s property. Until it can be returned to its rightful owner, it will remain in limbo. For the foreseeable future, Cedar Point will remain a great place to thrill seekers.
Unfortunately, for Rachel Hawes, the Top Thrill Dragster was the lesser of the two towers of tritons. Not only did she get the worst of the worst, but she suffered the most in the process. Although she was lucky enough to survive the incident, she is still fighting for her life. She remains in critical condition and her family has been conspicuously silent on her status. The site is currently unable to provide an update on the woman’s status, but you can rest assured that she is in our thoughts and prayers.
There are no guarantees that the woman will make it home, but her family is keeping an optimistic vigil and the gimmick of the tidbit will be well remembered by those who know her best.
