Millie Is Down Again!

Thursday, July 6, 2006 9:45 PM
Sry Sry ... OKay I visited the park Tuesday and Wednesday. Our Tuesday night began with us starting on Dragster (my group had never ridden before) and working around to Millie. Well at the end of the night (about 930) it went down. We went in the next morning to find it still DOWN! Also I was dismayed to find the hand stamps gone (what happened there??that stuff was great!) Anyhow, does anyone know what happened to it?? All lines around it were just monsters, with Mantis and Raptor featuring 1.5 hour waits....also we saw some more track and supports unloaded wednesday morning...thanks and sry for the messed up original post. cameron *** Edited 7/7/2006 2:25:10 AM UTC by Camrider88***

I have not bean to to Cedar Poit yet, what is so special about Millenum Force, besides the fact that it is over 300ft. All it looks like is a brop and some over bank turns. It dose not look so special to me.

^It's also super fast throughout the entire course. It's overhyped, IMO.

My favorite coaster that I have been on is Dueling Dragons (fire).

Is Dueling Dragons an overhyped coaster??? ;)

Well I waited 3 hours to ride MF the year it opened and I'd do it again if I had to, and there is not other coaster in the over 150 I've ridden that I would be willing to do that on. Its just 2 minutes of fun, no bores no anything just speed. Everyone's got their preferences, this is just mine.

Dueling Dragons are overhyped coasters.

Welcome back, red train, how was your ride?!

^ ;P

My preference is inverions and G-Forces.

I wonce rode the rotorator at SFMM 5 times in arow. (The thing were the room spins really fast and the floor drops out.)

Hamster Boy, are you drunk or just really tired? Go back and read your first post when you are either a) sober or b) awake.

^ Sleepy; watching the Simpsons.

I mean, it look fun but no good enough to be the best coaster of the year for 3 years. I think Expidion G-Force looks better.

DantheCoasterman's avatar MF is awsome! The 1st drop is amazing, the over-banks are cool, and the other hills and bunny hop are! It's a great coaster and deserves what it gets. :)

Extremely overhyped. Slow drawn out, boring hills. The hyper on the other side of the park however, is great.
To those people that tell me that "You Ohio State fans think your better than everyone." It's because we are. :)

I know I'm sounding like a broken record here but once again I'd like to point out that according to Mitch's steel coaster poll, out of the 22 people who had ridden both, a whopping 15 of them preffered EGF. If you're basing this on the Golden Ticket awards, that really does not accurately reflect our community's true consensus.

MF without doubt is the best coaster I've been on. I hope it gets fixed soon.

I have not been on EGF, but from the vids I've seen, it looks awesome. Great use of the landscape, flying around trees and stuff.

Imagine if GL's coasters did that, might add more thrill to them.

Not being able to see the course increases the thrill, IMO. That is the only reason i like Disaster Transport or Blazing Fury.

^^ I am basing them on how they are on NoLimits.

Also I just got NoLimits yesterday. It is really fun.

I'll admit it. I'm an airtime/forces whore, and MF just doesn't do it for me. Fun ride, sure, but in that park alone there are at least a couple other rides that deliver more bang for the buck. I find that I don't bother with MF unless it's early in the morning or in the very-off-season, when the lines are short. The one exception I'll make is if I'm hosting a first-timer; then I feel duty-bound to take 'em on it once.

But, it does suck when it's closed. The 1,000-1,500 people who would have been in that line at any one time end up in lines with *me*, instead. ;)

Close your eyes and amagine it was 1996 and the first batmans were introduced. There is no SMrideOF, X, EGF, TTD or millie. I'm so excited and can't wait to get the chance to ride batman a five inversion, highly intense Boliggar and Mabillard. This thing is going to be amazing.

There are people all over the world wishing and desiring to ride a batman. Due to the poll rates, EGF is better then Millie. This is not directed at an inparticular person but it mindboggles me to hear that reality . Were consistantly not satysfied with roller coasters in general. El toro was so fast and amazing but the track is so smooth they might as well built it with steel (someone did write that too). The only other ride out there like that is in Germeny and I am not going to say the name. Come on people!

I feel bad for the ones who live in British Columbia. Ive resaerched the amusement parks and roller coasters close to BC and there are non. It's not pretty let me tell ya. They spend millions and millions on these rides and we can't keep our mouths shut. How do you think the designers feel. I would be scared to come on here and read some of the things people have writen. Millie is worth twenty million and EGF is worth sixteen (not sure) but the point is how awsome it is to see them operate and there structure. There beautiful. We have polls for rides. I agree with them to a certain point but in 1996 I would be happy with anything. No ride is better then another IMO, they all have ther place on the map.

I'm sitting on my computer at home right now and port stanley is a very popular beach that sits on lake erie. It is looking right at The point about a six hour drive away. Do you think i'm going to say millie is a better ride then EGF when I would be happy to just get on the masterpiece. If im lucky I will get on millie once in the next five years. School, work, money, vehicle or two week holidays once a year. That is not explaining me but thats what it is like.

From my perspective we are very greedy, ignorant, aragant people. Please remember when entering into SFGAv with your season pass folks cause I would love to be in your shoes.

One more thing. If things take a turn for the worse with the six flags then we will see how appreciative we all are. Judge Judge Judge Judge. WOW! I hope millie is up soon because it is spectacular and I would be greatful to take a ride. *** Edited 7/7/2006 11:19:06 PM UTC by CoasterDiscern***
