I had a few folks asking for the 960p, 4:3 aspect ratio HD video of Steel Force, seen in the middle of the Steel Force Complete Ride Experience video, to be uploaded here by itself. So, here you go!
**Special Note** About this video: forgive the "shakiness" of this POV. Unfortunately, Steel Force's trains have a top edge that runs about shoulder height with the rider. As a result, we were unable to use the GoPro's chest mount harness. Instead, for this ride, we used a GoPro handheld buckled-strap mount, which worked out nicely despite the ride bucking riders all over the seat! Thanks for your patience.
Steel Force is a roller coaster at Dorney Park in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Built by D. H. Morgan Manufacturing and designed by Steve Okamoto, it opened in 1997. It is 5,600 feet (1,700 m) in length (over 1-mile (1.6 km)), making it the longest coaster on the East Coast. It has a 205-foot (62 m) first drop, with a top speed of 75 miles per hour (121 km/h). Riders experience over 2.5 G's at the bottom of the first hill.
Steel Force is the ninth longest steel roller coaster in the world and the longest such rollercoaster on the East Coast of the United States.
When Steel Force opened, it laid claim to being the longest, fastest, a nd tallest roller coaster on the East Coast. The title of longest coaster on the East Coast still stands. It has been ranked among the top 10 steel coasters in the world.[1] S
Steel Force's logo was originally intended for the stand-up coaster Mantis, which had opened at Cedar Point a year earlier. Mantis initially was to be named "Banshee," but had its name changed for sensitivity reasons.[2] The logo was no longer appropriate after the name change, so Dorney Park adopted it for its Steel Force coaster a year later.
The following materials are included:
2,000 tons of steel
12,150,000 pounds (5,510,000 kg) of concrete footers
2,742 anchor bolts

Two 120-foot-long (37 m) tunnels
510-degree downward helix
Double-up
On-ride photo camera (between the last two airtime hills)
