I have to sit this one out - haven't ridden The Beast. MF will probably win without my help, though. It's a terrific coaster, though I favor Magnum XL over it.

MF by far over the Beast. I love everything about Millennium. From its speed, sweeping turns great airtime and smoothness. My favorite coaster. Again no contest.

I have to recuse myself from this one as well - I love both of them too much to pick one. :)

But alas, if MF did win this round (and it will) it would easily win overall, whereas the Beast might not.

I haven't ridden either coaster (don't worry, I didn't vote!) but sure would love to try Millenium Force one day. I've never seen a coaster that brings you up that high! Must be terrifying. My guess is that MF will win this match-up.

MR was super fun! But the beast pulled out all kinds of surprises for a woodie! The first part of the ride is kinda just plain. ... but after the second lift it breaks loose! Loved the beast. .. that's my vote

Sure would like to see the Beast vs the Voyage.... oh well, if wishes were horses, well, I'd ride a fast one! Go Millennium Force?

I know I am going to be yelled at, but I think MF is a bit overrated.

I voted for the Beast (big whoop, I know!)

I don't care to comment. It's like a cowboy having to shoot one of his two favorite horses, or a little boy having to leave one of his two favorite dogs behind.

I think very highly of Millennium Force, and I'm sure it will win, but man do I love the Beast.

Anthony, you think MF is OVERRATED?

Thank you, I thought I was the only one.
