    Oh boy. Looks like my wife will want to go back sooner than expected!

    That just sounds incredible.

    120 mph., unbelievable. I saw this in the early stages of construction last fall.

    I can't imagine any coaster moving faster - or rising higher - than the Millennium.

    120 mph, that is crazy!!! It's hard to believe that the coaster is the 16th built in that park!!

    They are really squeezing them in there. I guess if they ever need more room they could tear down that headache machine, um, now I can't think of the name of it. The big wood one. Not the Gemini, that is a classic. Oh well.

    Brandon, you're probably thinking of Mean Streak.

    For the record, this ride looks cool, but a little short-you launch, come down, and that's it. One of the things I liked about MF is that it was actually a LONG coaster-not just a single drop.

    But, I'll be making another trip out all the same. Wonder whether they'll put in a fastlane for it right off the bat?

    Looks like a great ride and a good twist putting it as a coaster vs a shuttle car like Superman. I hope that I will get the opportunity to go and ride this one when I get back to my other office in Indiana fall of this year.

    On the downside I cant say that I was that impressed with Cedar Point when I went there last fall. The rides needed some serious maintenance. A lot of them including the Magnum XL were extremely rough. Millennium force was awesome, as was the Wicked Twister.

    I hope they have a wet-nap dispenser at the end of that one for all the people that drop a load in their pants while riding!

    Seriously, that thing looks like it'll be one helluva ride, even if it is only 30 seconds long (give or take). I'm sure it will probably set another record: longest wait time to ride time ratio! I can imagine waiting two+ hours for a 30 second ride...

    We didn't make it to CP last year, I think this beast should draw us back this summer.

    I've never been a big fan of these magnetic lauch/quick ride roller coasters. I would have prefered a loooong climb up to the top of the 400 + foot hill and then an amazing drop. It sounds like the big hill will go by just too fast.

    I need to make another trip to Cedar Point. It's been too long.

    Took my wife 3 or 4 years ago, she had only been to Dismal Land so she was not prepared for real rides.
    I think it was the Magnum that we got one 1st, and she just about freaked on that one.
    I took her to "Beerland" and she was much better after that!
    I Love Cedar Point!
