Theme Park Insider readers offer their ratings and reviews for Millennium Force, a roller coaster at Cedar Point. (The minimum height to ride is 48 inches.)
Written by Robert Niles
The first giga coaster, Millennium Force was built in 2000 by Intamin. it is 310 ft. tall with a 300ft. drop at 80 degrees, reaching a top speed of 93 MPH. Features two above-ground tunnels, three airtime hills and four overbanked turns.
With absolutely wonderful views, awesome speed, and powerful thrills, Millennium Force deserves to be discussed as one of the best coasters in the nation. Yeah, there is almost no airtime on the ride, but it is all about smooth, sweet, wonderful speed. It is not my favorite coaster at Cedar Point (Maverick holds that honor), but it is a winner. Keep in mind that rider throughput is not very good for a headliner (maybe 1300 an hour if they are running good), so lines can become very excessive. Ride early or ride late, but midday two hour waits are common. No ride is worth a two hour wait. 9-Outstanding. - James Rao
Best roller coaster the world has EVER seen! - Dwayne Kilbourne
Overrated, Joe Keenen? Really? You're probably the only person in on the planet that thinks that.....this coaster is a 'Force' to be reckoned with. It's tall, it's fast, that first drop is oh-so-steep, and it's smooth as glass. I could go on about how incredible the ride is, but everyone else's comments have captured that already. The Golden Ticket Awards don't lie--there's a reason this badass ride has been ranked the #1 steel coaster in the world. Tip for the truly adventurous: ride in the front or back row on the lefthand side of the train--on the lift hill to the left is a small service road, and beyond that the waters of Lake Erie. Look down if you dare. 9.5/10 - Eric Stumpf
One of the scariest, but most enjoyable, roller coasters I have ever ridden. The climb up the first hill was one of the scariest minutes of my life; however, the airtime hills, tall banked turns, and high speed made up for it a hundred times over. I highly recommend it to any adrenaline junkie. - Emily Kramer
Immensely overrated. I really wish I spent the two hours waiting in this line riding something else. This ride is hardly worth even a 30 minute wait. The lift is pretty steep and gets to the top fast. I was expecting the best first drop of my life, but was vert disappointed. The drop seemed slow to me, I'm not really sure why. I didn't get that butterfly feeling in my stomach like I would have on a ride like Nitro in Great Adventure. The first drop of Millenium Force actually felt boring, no freefall feeling or anything like that. Also, the ride advertises zero gs or whatever the force is called when you feel like your coming out of your seat on those zero gravity hills. Let me tell you, my body didn't come off my seat the entire ride, and I'm not a huge fat person. The whole experience felt slow and boring to me. Extremely overrated. 3/10 - Joe Keenen
