Millennium Force is a steel roller coaster built by Intamin at Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio, United States. It was the fourteenth roller coaster to be built at the park since Blue Streak opened in 1964. Upon completion in 2000, Millennium Force broke six world records and was the world's first Giga Coaster, a roller coaster that exceeds 300ft in height. It was not the tallest and fastest ride on earth when it opened: the Tower of Terror ll opened in 1997 at 377 feet tall and 100 mph and Superman: The Escape, opened in 1996, was 415 feet tall and 100 mph. The ride is also the third-longest roller coaster in North America after The Beast at Kings Island and Fury 325 at Carowinds. It was the first roller coaster to use a cable lift system rather than a traditional chain lift. The coaster has a 310ft, 45-degree lift hill with a 300ft drop and features two tunnels, three overbanked turns, and four hills. It has a top speed of 93mph.Since its debut, Millennium Force has been voted the number one steel roller coaster ten times in Amusement Today's Golden Ticket Awards. Its lowest ranking in the poll has been two, a position that it has swapped with Superman the Ride (formerly Bizarro) numerous times since 2001, and in 2016, with Fury 325. Although Millennium Force has been surpassed in height and speed, it remains one of the tallest and fastest in the world.
