Cedar Point commissioned Sandusky, Ohio firm John Hancock and Associates to calculate the height of Millennium Force. The official height was measured at 310 feet, 11 inches.
The official speed was measured by Stalker Radar of Indianapolis. They measured 93 mph, just slightly higher than the 92 mph that the park had been advertising since announcing the ride in July of 1999.
The park now claims the height record only for North America, as Nagashima Spaland in Japan recently opened the 318-foot tall Steel Dragon.
