Millennium Flyers[edit]

Millennium Flyer trains were designed by Great Coasters International to be more flexible than other trains, allowing them to negotiate tighter turns, reduce damage to the structure of the roller coaster and provide a comfier ride.

Mini-llennium Flyers[edit]

Mini-llennium Flyer trains are similar in design to Millennium Flyers, however they are smaller. The first roller coaster to receive the trains is Coastersaurus at Legoland Florida.
