Cedar Point's second entry on the world's tallest coasters list is a more traditional thrill machine--although Millennium Force uses an elevator cable instead of a lift chain to quickly move its trains up its mammoth 310-foot hill. Accelerating to 93 mph, the ride is so intense that I experienced a brief moment of "grayout" at the bottom of the first drop when I rode the coaster.
Lots of coaster fans love Millennium Force. Me? Not so much. The grayout terrified me a bit--and not in a good coaster way. Despite its incredible height and speed, Millennium Force is surprisingly devoid of much airtime. And after its initial drop, I found Millennium Force oddly lackluster. Between the two giga-coasters, I much prefer Intimidator 305.
