Structure

310' tall first hill sloped at 45-degrees on the ascent and 80-degrees on the descent.

Three over-banked curving-hills, the tallest at a height of 169'.

Third hill is 182' high.

History

Tagline: "The Future is Riding On It."

During 2006, Millennium Force had significant downtime due to electrical issues. The problems started when the original motor blew out. The same motor was not available so a larger motor was put in place. This caused many errors including an encoder discrepancy error that resulted in significant downtime. Other problems developed including lack of weather protection for the new motor. The new motor blew out after a short service time. The problems that caused this were eventually fixed and a new, larger, more protective housing was used, as well as other changes that improve reliability.
