This is a truly exhilirating experience. I can hardly explain of what i felt on this ride. When the feeling of airtime finally oriented me to where i was, we went into this huge helix, where i once again got disoriented. I finally could see clearly to where i was oging, but when we went in o the camelbacks, i was disoriented with surges of airtime everywhere. OMG, this roller coaster has to be one of the best.

Some roller coasters kind of speak to me. No, I am not a Psyco, but a roller coaster delivers a message. For example, the Phoenix says, "Fly outa your seat." Talon says, "HOLD ON!" Wild Mouse says, "CURVE!" Steel Force says to me, "Put your hands up and scream!" When I last rode Steel Force, I had my hands up the entire time, because the darn thing told me to, in a way. When you look down at the first drop, I knew what I was in for, (because I had ridden it before) and when I didnt hold on to the lapbar, I got lots of airtime. On the first drop, the second drop, the bunny hills, and its fun try to touch the top of the tunnel with your hands, causing a "Handchopper effect" if thats what you want to call it. Well, this roller coaster was built for 2 reasons. Fun and airtime. That is exactly what I got on this red gaint. This is some of the most fun you can have sitting down. The airtime on this roller coaster is incredible. Also, Steel Force is one of the only ways to make a boring layout extremely fun. The only thing you think when you get off is, "I GOTTA DO THAT AGAIN!"

A good ride but pretty much what you would expect for a hyper coaster, good drop, good air time and buny hills, good ride.

Its nothing compared to Magnum or Apollo, but sill delievers an OK ride. The helix is awesome and intense, but I was dissappointed at the lack of air. The wicked double-up at the end is cool though.

Steel Force is a great hyper coaster. It has everything a hyper should have. It gives great airtime throughout the ride. Steel Force also has a good helix which is gone through with great speed. The "coffin" cars are comfortable and dont have handle bars, that means nothing to hold on to. Watch out for that tunnel!

The Steel Force is a steel sit down non looping mega coaster. It was built in 1997. It was built by the the Dinn Corp. It is 200' tall, 5,600' long. It travels at speeds of 75 mph, It lasts 3:00, and it has 2 tunnels. This coaster is great! I love the tunnels, airtime, and the helix. The front is the best seat. I rode it all night when I visited. Its so smooth its still one of my favorite steel coasters.

Steel Force was great i did love the air time but i didnt like how some parts of the ride were not well paced. Thats the reason for the "9"

Fun, fun, fun is how best to describe Steel Force. It has a tremendous drop into a tunnel which can also pick up some major airtime from the back seat. Its large, fast helix turnaround is spectacular, and the bunny hops back to the station are spectacular. Truely an awsome hyper.

I have ridden better hypercoasters, but that does not diminish the fact that this is a superb ride. Smooth ride with a simple yet effective layout. The cars are incredibly comfortable "bucket seats" with retractable seatbelts for EXTRA rider convenience. A simple lap bar completed the easy loading. On this visit (and despite the total lack of crowds in the park), the park was running two trains. No train left the station with more than 6 or 8 people and more often left with only 1 or 2. The operators were enthusiastic and efficient even when it was just me and my buddy riding. The ride is a grand experience in airtime with two huge hills followed by a helix and a romp through the bunny hill run to the station. A must ride!
