For those of us lucky enough to have been on both Millennium Force and Superman: Ride of Steel this year, which one did you prefer and why? I've gotten 16 rides on the Force so far (going again this Saturday) and got 4 rides in on SFNE RoS. Now, I've also had 4 rides in the front on MF, including one front row ride at night with the island lights turned OFF. I didn't get any front row or night rides on Supes. So, in my opinion, I think that Millennium Force beats out the ever famous SROS at SFNE because I'm an "sensory overload" type of person. The ride doesn't have to be the most intense or whatever, but it has to thrill all of my senses. MF does this like no other ride can, not even SROS. So, the question before you, who have been on both MF and SFNE RoS, which one do YOU prefer and why?

One word: Airtime! That to me is the only reason for liking Superman better. It has the most extreme airtime that I have ever felt on a steel coaster. It's all about what you prefer. I rode MF 11 times during my week stay there, and I rodes Superman 6 times. Both are amazing, and your right when you say that MF does some things that a 200 foot hyper just can't match. But Superman is simply flawless in my opinion, and at times it's like riding a stand-up coaster your out of your seat so much!

I love MF and all 3 versions of S:ROS. They (and Apollo's Chariot to a degree) all deliver a great ride and a wonderful feeling of smooth flight. I would be hard pressed to pick a favorite between them... or even my Tuesday ride on Goliath, another fast and fun experience! Bring em on, cause I can't get enough of this new breed of coaster.

I like ROS more. The twister ending is great. the first tunnel surprised me didn't know it was coming until I was thru it. I could do without the mist though all it does for me is mess up my glasses so I can't see.
MF is good to. I just think they could have did more with the layout. To me it seemed like they just wanted overbanked turns and a huge first drop.

I love Millennium Force. The main reasons are because of the airtime and the drop is like no other.I havent gotten the front seat yet but I am hoping I will get it the next few times I go.

While Superman Ride of Steel at SFNE is by far the country's best HYPERcoaster, the speed on Millennium Force makes it the better ride. However, it is true that the airtime on Superman beats The Force by far. You just can't beat a 92 M.P.H. first drop at an eighty degree angle.

Unless you prefer the unbeatable airtime, which I do. Speed alone doesn't do much for me, I have to feel forces, otherwise I might as well be driving 90mph with the top down in my car. Not to say that's all MF is(cause it offers more), but I really don't feel the diffrences in speed all that much.
