I'm not crazy about Millennium Force, but I'm REALLY not a fan of Raptor. So, the lesser of two evils (and still a very fun ride) Millennium Force gets my vote.

Hmmm... one of the brackets that I can't vote for since I've never been on either. From the looks of the rides, their layouts, etc I'd vote for Millennium Force... but I can't vote especially since these rides are more than visual.

That was tough. Two very different steelies, but both pretty good.

Two Cedar Point choices? Well, I like both a lot, but the Millennium is my favorite coaster of all. So gotta go with that.

I went to CP for the first time this past summer, and I couldn't wait to ride Millenium Force. Maybe people built up too much for me, but it was a disappointment. I don't know what I was expecting, but I didn't really enjoy it that much.

I remember my first ride on the fairly new Millenium Force. It was the only rollercoaster I'd ever ridden on where no one screamed on the way down the first drop- everyone was too shocked! A beautiful, smooth, exhilarating ride with amazing air time, left us with a 20 minute adrenalin high after (and an hour of deathly fear before, as we waited to ride the first time)

People have gotten used to the ride now, and there are plenty of screams on the way down, but it is still a heck of a great ride.

I was a huge fan of Raptor when it was built, but better stuff has come along since. I still like Raptor, but I would always take a ride on Millennium Force over Raptor, given the choice.

Millennium the best Gega coaster I have ever been on. Smoth ride. Great hills. Terrific location. Although Rapter is a good ride. Millennium is my favorite to win the whole thing.

It's tough voting down one of your home park favorites, they are both great rides. Yet, if I could only ride one today it would easily be Millennium Force!

Is this even a contest? Although I'm more of a Magnum XL guy, MF takes Raptor to town.
