Millennium at Fantasy Island

Millennium was built to celebrate the arrival of the new millennium but despite its name, was opened in May 1999. It was Fantasy Island’s first “Extreme Thrill Ride”, and circles the Pyramid which is the centrepiece of the park. Featuring three inversions, riders experience two loops and a sidewinder. Millennium finishes in a low helix, which swoops down to a level just above head height of those in the amusement park, frequently startling the unsuspecting public. Some of Millennium Roller Coaster’s track is intertwined with The Odyssey’s, providing some Headchoppers, especially when near The Odyssey’s supports.
