The lift hill, visible in the distance on the right side of this shot, has a rather distinctive shape. With a steep ascent, an even steeper descent, and a very large-radius bend at the top of the hill, the track makes a rather unusual profile. Add the widely spaced support structure holding up the track, and Millennium Force has a first hill that is very easy to recognize.
In 2012, over 50 life-sized dinosaurs were added on and near Adventure Island, the bit of land situated in the middle of the Cedar Point Lagoon. Most of the dinosaurs are animated, and some allow visitors to move the creatures by pressing push buttons. The Dinosaurs Alive! exhibit covers about four acres and costs extra for admission, but a Cedar Fair Season Pass should allow a visit without having to pay the extra upcharge.
