Millennium Force

This is Millennium Force's third hill, a 182-foot-tall parabolic arc that gives riders a wonderful dose of airtime.  The coaster's 310-foot first hill gave it the title of the "World's Tallest Full-Circuit Roller Coaster" from its opening in May 2000 until Steel Dragon 2000 opened in August 2000. (Two shuttle coasters, Superman: Escape from Krypton and Tower of Terror II had taller structures, but those are launched shuttle-coasters and not continuous-circuit coasters.)   As of 2017, Millennium Force is the 8th tallest coaster, and has the 8th largest drop of any roller coaster.
