Millennium is a steel roller coaster located at Fantasy Island in Ingoldmells, Lincolnshire, England, UK. It was built by Vekoma to celebrate the new millennium, however it actually opened in May 1999, as the parks first extreme thrill ride.[1] It costs £3.50 to ride, but can also be ridden using an all-day wristband.

At 55.9 mph and 150 feet tall, Millennium is the 7th fastest[2] and 4th tallest roller coaster in the UK.

For the 2018 season, the roller coaster was repainted pink with green supports and the train was repainted.

Design[edit | edit source]

Elements

Prior to its repaint, the ride had yellow track and red supports.

Layout[edit | edit source]

The first drop in the former colour scheme

The ride has a square shaped layout which runs round the park's pyramid building. After the drop comes a vertical loop and a sidewinder. Then, the ride enters a helix, which is interwined with Jubilee Odyssey's support structure, providing some good headchopper moments. The ride then enters another vertical loop, and finishes with another helix, which swoops down to a level just above head height of those in the amusement park, frequently startling the unsuspecting public.

Trains[edit | edit source]

Single train with 7 cars. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 28 riders per train.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

The ride was originally planned to run two trains and thus a switch section was put in place, so a train could be placed on the transfer track. The transfer track itself was never built, however and the ride operates a single train.
