The Top Ten

Mellinium 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.


ok go to cedar point your life will change. This is the best ride there. Dragster a close second
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.

2X2 - 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.


This coaster is better then any coaster in the world
It's the world's first 4th dimension roller coaster.
It has the world's tallest flying drop.
And has a fire effect.
And has the best soundtrack


X x x 222... X x x 222...
Best rollercoaster soundtrack EVER! It's as if they're mocking the riders!

3Space Mountain - Disneyland USA
It's epic and there's a great atmosphere... no, I'm not charging you for that terrible pun.
This ride is overrated nothing is fun about it (to me)
Space mountain is the best. Especially if you get the front seat like I did

4The 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!


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


5El 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!
My actual favorite is Millennium Force. But El Toro BELOW the Voyage!? Come on, people. SFGA's coasters are underrated. I don't even see Nitro in the top ten!


6Nemesis - Alton Towers, England
One extreme coaster! Mind-Blowingly quick.


The best roller coaster I have ever ridden!
This coaster is possibly the best b and m in the world better than raptor the zero g rolls are the best and the blood added to the river

7Steel Dragon 2000 - Nagashima Spa Land Japan
#9th fastest coaster 1-ring racer 2-fourmula rossa 3-top thrill dragster 4-dodnpa5-SEFK6-fujiyama7-millennium force8-I305

8Space Shuttle - Enchanted Kingdom Philippines

9The Incredible Hulk - Universal Islands of Adventure USA

10Rock 'n' Roller Coaster - Disney's Hollywood Studios, USA
This should be 1 my favorite ride at disney
Disneys only ride with inversions and you also get to listen to Aerosmith. YEAH BABY!

The Contenders

11Apollo's Chariot - Busch Gardens Williamsburg USA
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!
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.
I went on this with my friend after we rode Roman Rapids and it was so coold but we loved it and we put are hands up in the front row.

12Kingda Ka - Six Flags Great Adventure USA
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
I thought it would be higher on the list, I'm always wrong

13Intimidator - 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.
1. Should be intimidator 2 kingda ka

14Raging Bull - Six Flags Great America USA

15The Swarm - Thorpe Park UK

16Bizarro - Six Flags New England USA
Going on this ride 3 times in a row at night is the only way to ride
The idea here is scenery. The ride is tall and fast. But the props and effects are even better!


I felt like I was shot out of a cannon.


17Intimidator 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.


Best ride ever. You can see like half of Virginia from the top
A great ride so intense though

18The Smiler - Alton Towers UK
Just awesome in uk roller coasters standards

19Speed Monster - Tusenfryd Norway

the Americans must be told about this one.


20Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit - Universal Studios Florida USA
Absolutely amazing, love this rollercoaster and would recomend it to anyone! ABrilliant ride:)!

21Leviathan - Canada's Wonderland
This is the most epic Rollercoasters on earth.
:) <3!
Kats and more Kats rawr I vicous

22Eejanaika - Fuji-Q Highland Japan

23Dragster - Cedar Point USA
Although kingda ka is the highest coaster, top thrill dragster is a close second.
I don't get how Kingda Ka is better. Lap bars are where it's at! Who cares about an extra 8 mph and 36 ft when you are put in a shoulder harness?

24Maverick - 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.

25Colossus - Thorpe Park UK

26Cheetah Hunt - Busch Gardens Tampa Bay

27Splash Mountain - DisneyWorld Magic Kingdom USA
I'm ten. But one time me my mom dad brother sister cousin Tia Tio and nana (Tia is aunt in Spanish and Tio is uncle in Spanish) went to Disneyland and my nana watched my baby cousin brother and sister while we went on. They take pictures on the ride always so when we saw the photo it was funny because my Tio was wearing a shirt that said (how to keep an idiot busy see back) and my Tia on sitting on back of him with a stupid look on her face. That was funny!
Log flumes don't as coasters to me but splash mountain is good

28Magnum XL-200 - Cedar Point USA

29Fujiyama - Fuji-Q Highland Japan

30Th13teen - Alton Towers UK

31Inferno - Thorpe Park UK

37Sheikra - Busch Gardens Tampa USA
Arguably the world's most adrenerline packed ride but this is Busch Gardens's eagle! Its sommet else dude...


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

38Dragon Challenge - Islands of Adventure USA

39Matterhorn Bobsleds - Disneyland
What makes this roller coaster so special is that this is the ride that influenced others to make steel type roller coasters too! It is the first steel tubular roller coaster in the world! I simply love this attraction! It sure makes me want to yodel!

40Infusion - Blackpool Pleasure Beach UK

41Kong - Six Flags Discovery Kingdom USA

42The Beast - Kings Island
Best wooden coaster ever! It goes up a 110 foot tall hill very slowly, then plunges you into a dark tunnel. Then you emerge out of it and go down and up a hill, getting deeper and deeper into the woods. Then you go through a tunnel again and climb up another hill. Then you plunge down into a 570 degree helix.
Not only is it the longest wooden coaster in the world (7,359 feet of wooden track), it's a classic.


43Oblivion - Alton Towers, England

44Goliath - Six Flags Magic Mountain USA

45Mr. Freeze - Six Flags Over Texas USA

46Revolution - Six Flags Magic Mountain USA

47Titan - Six Flags Over Texas USA

50Behemoth - Canada's Wonderland

80Firehawk - Kings Island, USA
This is definitely a really unique coaster. You go up the hill headfirst, laying on your back. The track flips over, and it makes you feel, literally, like you're flying.

81The Ultimate - Lightwater Valley UK
Brilliant ride. Apparently has a world record for being 1.5 miles long. There is also cliffhangers E.G. dump into forest, giant plunge at beginning. Enjoy the ride!

82Batman - Six Flags Great Adventure
My 1st big roller coaster

83Mr. Freeze Reverse Blast ~ Six Flags St. Louis
First, you go backwards going from 0-70 MPH in 4 seconds. Then you go through a couple of loops until you reach a 122 ft. high 90 degree angle. Then you do the ride forwards.


84Shockwave - Six Flags Over Texas USA

85Storm Runner - Hershey Park USA

86Top Thrill Dragster - Cedar Point USA
Top Thrill Dragster @ Cedar Point (Sandusky, OH) - The world's first full-circuit Stratacoaster, which is a roller coaster to active a height of over 400 feet! Not only is this 420-foot monster the 2nd tallest coaster on earth, it's the 3rd fastest - launching you from 0-120 mph in less than 4 seconds!

Kingda Ka @ Six Flags Great Adventure (Jackson, NJ) - It may not be there original like Top Thrill Dragster, but Kingda Ka deserves to tie with it because it's the tallest coaster on ever (456 feet), and the 2nd fastest (0-128 mph launch in 3 seconds). It's also a longer ride than Top Thrill Dragster.


At 427 feet tall, with a max speed of 120 mph, riding this coaster could very well be the best 17 seconds of your life.
Why the heck is this at the bottom of the list? This is the best ride ever.
