I believe it goes 13 MPH. It reaches the top of the lift hill in 21 seconds. I hope that helps.

If I remember right, when they announced it they said it would go up the lift at 15 ft per second, which then would give you the 21.

Thanks for the help guys. I always thought it was around 16-18 MPH.

its about 10-15, because it takes 30 seconds to reach the top of the lift hill from the firt inch it moves

Just as a point of reference, a normal chain-lift travels at about 3-4 mph, right?

I thought normal chains went about 5-10 mph.

I was told by one of the ride ops last year (after seing my friends ace shirt) that the cable goes 13 mph. I jus hope he was right

The numbers that I have heard for the cable are 13-14 mph when traveling at full speed. The sources on that are pretty good.

Normal chains are in the vicinity of 3-6 mph. I don't know just how fast the lift is on Knobel's High Speed Thrill Coaster when they really open the throttle, but it feels fast.

I asked them last summer and they said 18 mph

Not sure why there is still a debate about the speed of MF lift hill. Look at the link that MillineumXL200 provided you with.

I quote direct from CP sources:
"How fast does the train ascend the first hill?
The Millennium Forceā¢ train ascends the first hill in 22 seconds, at 20 feet per second. That's 13 miles per hour. "
