One of Cedar Point's most-popular roller coasters is back up and running after weeks of being closed. According to Cedar Point, Top Thrill Dragster opened back up on Saturday, Aug. 24 after being closed for nearly three weeks.

On Aug. 8, Cedar Point tweeted that the ride was not open, and its pit crew was working with the manufacturer to reopen it as soon as possible.

On Aug. 10, the park tweeted that it will remain closed until a part arrives from the manufacturer. There is no estimated time for reopening.

This is the last full week that Cedar Point will be open. After Labor Day, the park transitions to Halloweekends which means the park will only be open Friday-Sunday before officially closing for the winter on Monday, Oct. 28.
