Millennium Roller Coaster is a Vekoma steel sit-down 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. It costs £3.50 to ride, but can also be ridden using an all-day wristband.
At 55.9 mph and 150 feet, Millennium Roller Coaster is the 7th fastest and 4th tallest roller coaster in the UK.
The ride has a striking paint scheme, with yellow track and orange supports. It can be seen from several miles away as one approaches the park. this, however is currently changing to a lime green and magenta pink scheme for the 2018 season
The ride has a square shaped layout, as it 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.
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.
