Millennium Force Roller Coaster
This coaster is not only a tribute to its engineers for being the world’s largest, but engineers employed a host of new technologies. For example, the elevator cable system--used for first time on a roller coaster--ensures a smooth trip up the hill, and a magnetic braking system replaces the traditional friction approach.
