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.
I can't believe I rode this. I hate the new intamin cars they're small and give you nothing to hang on to. I like the feeling of being enclosed. I now a boxed in feel is cumbersome to most but maybe they can create a sleek design that doesn't make you feel like there's nothing there. As for the ride it was really intense and it scared me going up because it was going so fast and the incline was really steep and and the cars were small I felt like I was going to fall out! I would look at the lake or the park I just looked straight ahead I was so scared. I usually take a deep breath so the butterfly effect in the stomach won't be so bad but with the Millennium Force it feels like it takes forever to get over the first hill and when it finally starts going faster it's almost halfway down! (maybe I got that feeling for only being in the 2nd car). I have to admit it was really steep. It's the only ride I've ever heard my brother scream on LOL. It was really intense and that gravity hill was kind of scary but I would have enjoyed it more if the seats weren't so small and open. - Raymond Ass
Perfect, one of the best roller coaster ever made. It features the best first drop and floater airtime. Perfect airtime, decent theming. But overall the best roller coaster there is it doesn't get better than this. 10/10 - Edward Morgan
I rode Millennium Force many times during my two day trip (with Fast Lane Passes both days), and I have to say... it's only very good in the front. Sure you get a bit more ejector air on the drop in the back but when it comes down to it, I think this coaster is all about the sustained speed, the tears that you get from riding up front at times, etc. If you take away the speed and if I ignore that, then the only part of the ride I really find good is the first drop and the G-forces at the bottom. After that it actually let me down, in fact if it wasn't for the speed I don't know how this ride would rank... and of course the height of the first hill. If I could change something about this it would be the airtime, the two hills do have air, but barely. If I rode in the back, Maverick would be better in my opinion, but up front this is a winner to me. Good ride! - Mikael Vagen
when i first rode this i was extremely nervous as the highest i had ever gone on a coaster was magnums 205 feet which was only 10 minutes ago but as we went up the chain lift i didnt have time to be scared bcus of how fast it went as we dropped i didnt feel the tickle at all which suprised me and kinda dissapointed me as we went over the first over banked turn i got tunnel vision which was kinda freaky the rest of the coaster was fun and fast but nothing amazing. this coster is definently better then dragster if u dont do draagster front seat theirsvnothing like that!millenium is a great coaster but its losing its feel - ed shaheen
A great coaster! The only one I like more in the park is Maverick. That could be because I rode MF once & Maverick 4 times. The best part of it is the speed. It's probably the smoothest coaster I've ever rode. Intimidator 305 is better. 9/10 - Will Gibson
