Top Ten Best Roller Coasters


The Top TenXW

1Millennium Force - Cedar Point USA

It's pretty much unarguable. Not only is this Gigacoaster 310 feet tall, and 93 mph fast, but its' revolutionary! It may not have inversions, but every single drop and turn is smooth, and the view from the top of the lift hill is simply beautiful. - GEMINI-42

Best ride in the park and country by far. Nothing can beat the speed and layout of the ride. Every turn and hill on the ride is a great experience and just adds to the excitement of the ride. The speed never slows down until the very end. Speed and excitement makes for a great ride and Millennium has both. I'm so lucky to only have to drive an hour to ride this ride! I make sure I get on this every time I go.

Wow... This coaster is amazing. One time, I stuck at the VERY top of the first hill, and I almost PEED MY PANTS LIKE A LITTLE BABY! Was it worth it, yes, very much worth the almost peeing experience.

Best. Coaster. Ever.

2El Toro - Six Flags Great Adventure USA

Millennium is amazing, but it is not very intense. I'll give up a little height and speed if it's for an airtime buffet as seen on El Toro!

As much as I love El Toro, Nitro is my favorite six flags coaster. I'm surprised it's below space mountain

Your Ass Flies Out Of The Seat Quite A Bit!

This ride is the best wooden coaster of all time!

3Intimidator 305 - Kings Dominion USA

The g-forces are in fact so high that people were blacking out (I actually blacked out the second time I rode it)! But it's still an amazingly revolutionary ride. This 305-foot Gigacoaster marked a new era in the coaster world. - GEMINI-42

Best ride ever. You can see like half of Virginia from the top

This ride is very forceful I'm debating if this or Fury 325 is better

4Kingda Ka - Six Flags Great Adventure USA

I'll bet 90 percent of these guys have either never rode it, or never rode top thrill dragster. Kingda Ka has shoulder restraints. Top Thrill gives you a better experience because it feels like you are flying and Kingda Ka feels like you are stuck to the seat. Top thrill is also the original. Can't beat it

The best part of the ride is just waiting to go. You sit on this launch pad, staring at this long track leading up to a huge tower. The anticipation is even greater in the front car. The launch is just plain sick.

It is insane because it is the highest and you launch 452 feet straight up. and then you go down with a twist along the way

A ripoff of top thrill dragster

5Maverick - Cedar Point USA

Maverick is no doubt the best coaster in the world. Your probably looking at the stats like: 105 feet? That is pathetic!, Cedar Point wanted to prove bigger is not always better, and boy they did. Maverick has no doubt the best element combonation on any rollercoaster. Maverick starts off with a VERY fast lift to the top, dropping you BEYOND vertical at 95 degrees!, next Maverick takes you threw very intense twisty turns, then an EJECTOR airtime hill of awesomeness!, then two twisted horseshoe rolls, that are very rare, next you stop into a 400ft long tunnel and launched at 70mph! Out of the tunnel, you come into a large turn and then followed by an S-Curve, after that two intense 92 degree overbanked turns, an airtime hill and finish! All Millennium Force has is a gigantic drop and speed, it has little to NO airtime whatsoever, long boring overbanked turns. don't get me wrong I LOVE Millennium Force, it just doesn't deserve one, Maverick does.

Maverick proves size doesn't matter

6X2 - Six Flags Magic Mountain USA

This isn't just a roller coaster. It's an invention. There are very few 4th dimension coasters in the world, and this is probably the greatest of them. By the way, a 4th dimension coaster is a ride in which the seats run on the side of the track, and they can spin on a horizontal axis. - GEMINI-42

Six Flags basically just took the "extreme" factor and just ran with it. This is one mindless design for a rollercoaster and it's incredibly nerve-wracking. - Mcgillacuddy

It is so awesome I live in Nevada so I get to go to six flags magic mountain like 6 times a year but the last 2 times we went it was closed but it's a very good ride.

This ride was great before X2 I rode this back when it was X

7The Voyage - Holiday World USA

For years upon years, this wooden classic has been voted the best coaster of it's kind. It's one of rides that doesn't need too much of a resin to be great - it's just overall fun and exciting! - GEMINI-42

It is literally ranked No.1 among all roller coasters. I mean, who can forget the GIGANTIC drop at the beginning - Godisawesome1

8Bizarro - Six Flags New England USA

The idea here is scenery. The ride is tall and fast. But the props and effects are even better! - GEMINI-42

Going on this ride 3 times in a row at night is the only way to ride

I felt like I was shot out of a cannon. - Masterofcheeseing

9The Incredible Hulk - Universal Islands of Adventure USA

Although the stats aren't super impressive this ride packs a punch. At 67 mph it is the fastest in Orlando, and certainly the best. Its loud roar, mammoth inversions and crazy launch all make this ride on of the best in the world. And the theming rocks too

This Ride Is Closed For A Massive Renovation Currently

This is a good ride but it's not the best guys in the comment ride Ell Tro and Mellenim Force

10Apollo's Chariot - Busch Gardens Williamsburg USA

I went on this ride with a friend who said not to freak out just scream on the first two hills! It was my first time on a big roller coaster and it was great! Perfect for a first try on bug coasters.

Best ride ever! I think I'm in love with B&M hyper coasters. The drop is awesome, the airtime is great, and the trains are insanely comfortable. Before this one my favorite was the Diamondback at Kings Island, but now I see the true king is Apollo's Chariot. Seriously a must ride!

Of all the coasters I've ridden Apollo's Chariot made me fall in love with airtime. - chad.brown.3551

So good it gave me a migraine.

One extreme coaster! Mind-Blowingly quick. - nic1997ps3

The best roller coaster I have ever ridden!

12Space Mountain - Disneyland USA

This ride is overrated nothing is fun about it (to me)

The only people who vote for this are people who think Disney parks are the most thrilling and best amusement parks out there... These are the only people I laugh at

It's epic and there's a great atmosphere... no, I'm not charging you for that terrible pun.

Hit hyperspace

13Leviathan - Canada's Wonderland

This ride is fun but pales in comparison to Fury 325, Intimidator 305, and Millennium Force

14Steel Dragon 2000 - Nagashima Spa Land Japan

The tallest, fastest, and longest roller coaster in the world! Other coasters are taller but none are longer!

I love this rollercoaster because it is so long and durable.
Its my personal favorite

15Rock 'n' Roller Coaster - Disney's Hollywood Studios, USA

What could be better than Steven Tyler screaming in your ears throughout a whole roller coaster ride? Absolutely nothing! - Dorito

Disneys only ride with inversions and you also get to listen to Aerosmith. YEAH BABY!

This should be 1 my favorite ride at disney

ONE BLOODY HELL OF A RIDE flying around the brand spanking new Sea World coaster is a knitmare to be had! - Karl

17Intimidator - Carowinds USA

I ride this ride almost every week I have the hat for it and it's the smoothest ride ever. Love the first hill.

It made me love roller coasters. I was terrified of them until I rode this.

Great ride but the new Fury is better

Most awesome ride in the world even though it is very short.
