 Review of Millennium Force @ Cedar Point
0 Rating Posted by: coasterkid on 6/21/2003 9:33:00 PM
I rode MF 3 times during Coaster Mania, twice in the very back and once in the very front. It is a great coaster no doubt, but for some reason there just didnt seem to be anything real special that struck me. My favorite part of course is the lift, because it is without a doubt a religious experience, as you get higher you begin to only see water to your side, and in the back the first drop is heaven, some great steel coaster airtime, and the 3rd hill and the 2 other hills give good air, but still I wasnt completely blown away by this ride. Of my 11 park, 70+ coaster trip only one coaster has copmpletely blown me away, and that was Wildfire, which is FUN!. This is fun but when you have to wait at least an hour for any type of ride on it the fun factor definately gets kicked down a few notches. This is an intense ride. Dont get me wrong it is fun, with some decent air (I prefer more forceful) and the overbanks were fun, especially the last one because in the back it feels like you could fall out. CP has the two most overated rides on the golden ticket list. This is great but does not deserve #1 and, magnum is ok but doesnt deserve #3. Good, efficient, and clean park with some good rides.

It does deserve a 10!

coaster...you are seriously smoking something. How can you not be blown away by Millenium force front seat? Seriously.

I have no problem with youre rating, but I just wanna know why its not in your top ten.
Rockstar18 on 7/11/2003 11:30:22 AM said:
Millenium Force front seat is amazing. even if you werent impressed by the ride or the wait for it the size and speed of the ride is enough to give you a feeling that lasts a lifetime. Even if you dont think its worth a 10 dont put it down by saying it wasnt impressive. Your opinion though so my thoughts dont count.
XtremeFan8 on 7/11/2003 1:00:10 PM said:
Any ride that leaves you picking bugs off your chest is a top 10 ride.
Rockstar18 on 7/11/2003 1:40:42 PM said:
that was because of a strong wind off of lake erie in early june...wait how did you know bout the attack of the gnats?
XtremeFan8 on 7/11/2003 1:48:24 PM said:
Thats what happened with me too. I rode next to this guy and he said, prepare to get bugs on you. I didnt know what he meant till I had to pick off dead bugs from my shirt.

I just rode MF in the front seat at night on Monday (July 7). I made the fatal error of wearing a white t-shirt on the ride. After noticing the bugs on my arm and my girlfriends cheek, I looked down at my shirt. Polka-dotted black with bugs ... closing in on 100 at first count. We were laughing so hard about it as I pulled into the station, I pointed to my shirt for the ride op who then said "Everyone please left your lap bars, unbuckle your seat belts ... and wash your shirts ... and exit to the right. Thank you for riding Millenium Force." One hell of a ride though.

there was an attack of killer gnats and they were so thick that day when i got off MF I went to brush off my arms and i had handfuls of dead gnats. It was horrible people were covering their faces to avoid eatting them.
XtremeFan8 on 7/12/2003 5:50:22 PM said:
Thats what 300feet and 93mph does to you my friends.
Rockstar18 on 7/12/2003 10:36:31 PM said:
no it wasnt the ride that made the gnats come it was the winds off the lake. they were in swarms.
XtremeFan8 on 7/12/2003 11:14:59 PM said:
No, Im gonna say the ride. Everyone who rode front had bugs on them.
Rockstar18 on 7/13/2003 5:05:50 PM said:
no it wasnt. the ENTIRE park were covering their faces and mouths because these gnats were in swarms over the entire park. People were eatting them it was so bad you couldnt walk and talk without doing it.
XtremeFan8 on 7/13/2003 6:37:52 PM said:
Not when I was there buddy! Still, I got bugs on me!
DemonRules on 7/14/2003 3:45:08 PM said:
nonono....i was there in June when all these bugs showed up (i have the white shirt to prove it) and these bugs are attracted to lights. so over different parts of the track, there are lights, and the train would fly under them and the passengers would get nailed by the bugs....especially right after the last overbanked turn.
XtremeFan8 on 7/14/2003 11:55:24 PM said:
Nope, because its fast, thats why. Notice no one got bugs on them on Blue Streak (near the lake). CUZ ITS NOT FAST!
DemonRules on 7/15/2003 3:59:18 PM said:
nono, if you looked at all the lights at night...there would be swarms of bugs underneath them. yes, the fact that its fast adds to the problem...but they are attracted to the lights. there arent tower lights over blue streak....so no bugs
Rockstar18 on 7/15/2003 8:18:55 PM said:
people. these gnats that came that year were over the ENTIRE park on a muggy day and made the sky have black patches at like 6pm. literally.
XtremeFan8 on 7/15/2003 11:22:52 PM said:
Give it up! I am right, you are wrong!
DemonRules on 7/15/2003 11:27:39 PM said:
Rockstar18 on 7/15/2003 11:48:21 PM said:
i am right. i was there. i know.
Rockstar18 on 7/15/2003 11:49:10 PM said:
btw they are attracted to the light and you get hit by them on rides with lights. take it from a 12 year cedar point goer i know!
XtremeFan8 on 7/16/2003 4:19:27 AM said:
I was there too! And how do you explain it when I got hit with bugs in the day? Huh? Lights arent on then! And MF has no lights on it.
Rockstar18 on 7/16/2003 9:46:02 AM said:
bugs fly around during the day and ACTUALLY MF does have lights.
DemonRules on 7/16/2003 10:19:45 AM said:
MF has lights lining the brake run...which is where most people got hit....and anyways, those bugs fly in HUGE swarms....so it is very possible to get hit by a swarm during the day.
Rockstar18 on 7/16/2003 10:36:09 AM said:
yeppers demon
XtremeFan8 on 7/16/2003 7:13:41 PM said:
MF does not have lights on the actual coaster train! Face it! You cannot explain it!
Red Rascal on 7/16/2003 9:01:24 PM said:
Nobody even said that theres lights on the train.
coasterkid on 7/16/2003 11:35:26 PM said:
Ok you people need to calm down, I gave it a freaking 9! The reason it is not in my top ten is because it is not a top ten ride to me! I found parts of it horrifying and parts of it really fun but it was not what I sought out in a coaster, I like more airtime,. Dont give me the crap about it has airtime, yes I know it does but I like it more forceful not the parabolic hills that are its 3rd and its 6th hill. It just didnt blow me away, one thing that hurts is having to wait in line for 2 1/2 hours to ride the front, and I realize that that isnt that bad. I love millenium force dont get me wrong, I just am not a MF nut.

DemonRules on 7/17/2003 10:14:59 AM said:
xtreme.....nobody ever said there were lights on the actual train. i said about a thousand times that there were lights that lined the track on the brake run, and at different times along the route. you are right, the train doesnt hve any
adriahna on 7/17/2003 12:51:56 PM said:
Alls I can say is this: my brother rode in the front seat of the Blue Streak one summer night, and ended up with a big ol mouthful of bugs - so, indeed, it does happen on the Blue Streak, too...
DemonRules on 7/18/2003 12:13:11 PM said:
there ya go xtreme....see, it happens on any ride thats got lights or wherever a swarm of bugs wants to hang out. the speed doesnt matter.
XtremeFan8 on 7/18/2003 4:54:53 PM said:
Nope, never got that on SROS in SFA! And believe me, that has plenty of lights!
DemonRules on 7/18/2003 6:20:42 PM said:
whoa, but thats a completely different park.....there might not have even been bugs anywhere near that park......it seems your goal in all this is to piss us off....
XtremeFan8 on 7/18/2003 11:20:07 PM said:
Rockstar18 on 7/18/2003 11:41:13 PM said:
Cedar point it surrounded by water, youll get bugs. hell my windshield was COVERED tonight driving home from there. If it has lights bugs will come.
DemonRules on 7/19/2003 9:04:52 AM said:
exactly my and everyone elses point......
Rockstar18 on 7/19/2003 10:29:22 AM said:
I just looked at my grill on my car and it is covered in bugs, my windshield is covered in bugs, AND my sideview mirrors are covered in bugs. bug bug bug. yet i didnt get hit with any on MF at midday...hmmm maybe cause the lights aint on then?
XtremeFan8 on 7/19/2003 7:08:46 PM said:
No I definately got hit in the mid-day!
Rockstar18 on 7/21/2003 12:35:47 PM said:
take a bath...maybe the bugs are attracted to that and sweat and stuff. i suggest riding snake river falls...i always ride that b4 MF
XtremeFan8 on 7/21/2003 12:48:23 PM said:
Oh yea, that will get me clean! I mean cuz the water on a log flume ride is sooooooo clean and not dirty at all!
DemonRules on 7/21/2003 5:20:05 PM said:
lol....hes got you there
Rockstar18 on 7/21/2003 6:28:36 PM said:
well look at it this way. you wont smell like sweat anymore.
SFGA_fan on 7/21/2003 6:35:00 PM said:
No, hell smell like fish and sewage, what a lofty alternative.
DemonRules on 7/21/2003 6:51:39 PM said:
haha...hes got you again
Rockstar18 on 7/21/2003 8:37:19 PM said:
well some people like to smell like fish. hookers for example.
DemonRules on 7/22/2003 12:01:26 PM said:
okay then...id say were back to a draw
Rockstar18 on 7/22/2003 5:29:24 PM said:
XtremeFan8 on 7/22/2003 9:23:27 PM said:
Yea, Ill just smell like a person who has been rotting in a coffin for 2 weeks straight with onions.
Rockstar18 on 7/22/2003 10:03:44 PM said:

SFGA_fan on 7/24/2003 1:14:55 AM said:

bb_dg on 7/24/2003 10:35:53 AM said:

Rockstar18 on 7/24/2003 12:27:51 PM said:

bb_dg on 7/24/2003 2:05:24 PM said:
im not cranky, just annoyed
Rockstar18 on 7/24/2003 4:10:00 PM said:
same diff.
DemonRules on 7/24/2003 7:09:29 PM said:
hey, instead of arguin....how about just gettin back on topic.....does anyone know exactly WHY there are so many bugs on MF...and at CP in general?
Red Rascal on 7/24/2003 7:45:02 PM said:
Look where CP is located.
DemonRules on 7/24/2003 8:15:38 PM said:
okay...near water.....are those gnat things like attracted to the water?
Danny on 7/24/2003 8:25:17 PM said:
Red Rascal on 7/25/2003 7:21:54 AM said:
Maybe, you dont see them at other parks.
DemonRules on 7/25/2003 12:03:20 PM said:
well, i dont know....ive never seen them anywhere else. i figured maybe it was just an ohio bug
Rockstar18 on 7/25/2003 2:31:48 PM said:
i get them here at my house and I live by the lake...i think thats where they are hatched at
XtremeFan8 on 7/28/2003 4:20:59 PM said:
Wait, what?
CoastrCraz on 7/28/2003 4:51:05 PM said:
This ride is worth a 10. But now, I have a new favorite, TTD. Holy Crap. This ride rocks, and I dont know how you cant be blown away by the view from front seat, or the great feeling in the back. This is my 2nd favorite, and used to be the best until I finally got to Ride TTD front seat, when it rolled back. Yeah so I dont get it either.
XtremeFan8 on 7/28/2003 6:42:52 PM said:
That first sentance is all you needed Coastr.
Rockstar18 on 7/30/2003 11:47:58 AM said:
yep. but his opinion is welcome. TTD rocks Coastr!
XtremeFan8 on 7/30/2003 2:16:15 PM said:
The ride is worth a 10!
CoastrCraz on 8/2/2003 6:35:24 PM said:
Yeah, I thought Id expand it a bit.
XtremeFan8 on 8/3/2003 6:30:56 PM said:
Yea, but again, thats all you needed.
