Top Ten Best Roller Coasters in the UK

A list of all the awesome rollercoasters in the UK.
The Top Ten
1 Nemesis @ Alton Towers

Wow! Really intense and terrifying but you feel safe and can just enjoy it. You don't have to hold on for dear life! 100% the best @ AT- (hated air cause it's so uncomfy. Theming is AMAZING! So creative and different. Utterly a CLASSIC.

Nemesis is so cleverly designed and has such a big G-Force! I love the scenery it's absolutely amazing and the idea is really good as well. My favourite roller coaster ever, so intense yet smooth!

Absolutely amazing. I hates roller coasters until I went on Nemesis. Brilliant! It's a ride for everyone to enjoy! The best one there! ( apart from air)

2 Avalanche @ Blackpool
3 The Big One @ Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Amazing height, amazing speed, amazing view, amazing drop and amazing Length of the ride!

Still edging the top of one of Europe's tallest coasters. A great thrill-seeking ride!

Epic ride... So fast but it is so good! goes 235 feet in the air it is just incredible should be too of charts

4 The Smiler @ Alton Towers

Gerstlauer's best. the only improvement I think could be made to the ride is the speed of the lift hills, which is INCREDIBLY slow (as in, glacier slow). other than that, great paint, theming, train design, track layout, etc.

I loved the half- way bit. The smiler and the stealth are the best rides I've been on. The smiler has 30 turns.

I went on this roller coaster at the age of 10 and it was most unfun
Roller coaster I have ever Been on. All it does is loop to loops and corkscrews.

5 Oblivion @ Alton Towers

Amazing ride with such and intense drop your stomach churns and your close to throwing up!

I been on a lot of rides and you get used to them, how they feel. You never get used to that drop. Best rider I ever been on for that extreme adrenilin rush

6 The Ultimate @ Lightwater Valley

A bit rough nowadays but still a decent ride, not sure it should be this high though.

Hit my head on a tree on this ride, but that was my fault for sticking it out ahah. Amazing ride, real thriller.

Heh, the second half of the Ultimate is a dangerous thing.

7 Dragon's Fury @ Chessington World of Adventures

Dragon's fury is the best ride at Chessington followed by Vampire and Tomb blaster

8 Th13teen @ Alton Towers

Awesome ride, love the free fall and how you go backwards at the end.

9 Grand National @ Blackpool

Twin track racing wooden coaster. Still the best.

10 Rita @ Alton Towers
The Contenders
11 Shockwave @ Drayton Manor

First stand up roller coaster and only stand up roller coaster. Amazing pure fun, highly recommended

12 Stealth @ Thorpe Park

Best ride ever! It's so fast so high & intense. Could it be better? I really recommend this ride to all theme park fans. It would be atrocious for you to not!

The best ride I have ever been on though I would put the smiler up there too. Fact: it is the fastest rolle coaster in Europe!

Best coaster in Thorpe Park! Maybe even in the UK!

13 The Swarm @ Thorpe Park

Really epic ride, the twist at the start drops you into tight turns around scenery - was amazing!

Oh my, the head-choppers, Not to mention how brilliant some of the theming is.

Went on The Swarm four times today! Loved it. Smooth, fast and very exciting.

14 Jubilee Odyssey @ Fantasy Island
15 Colossus @ Thorpe Park

Amazing! Nearly as good as the smiler

16 Saw: The Ride @ Thorpe Park
17 Air @ Alton Towers

Loved it. I love hights. I went on with my auntie who us afraid of stuff like that. But... She still enjoyed being upside down.

Best experience on a roller coaster!

18 Sonic Spinball @ Alton Towers

Making a ride based on a Sonic game (admittedly a rubbish one though) was a great idea. And the ride is awesome.

19 Kumali @ Flamingo Land

Kumali is an intense ride and dried us off after the water rides!

One hell of a coaster, deserves to be in the top spots.

20 Nemesis Inferno @ Thorpe Park

Great ride! The air runs through your face. So smooth you can't go to Thorpe Park without going on it!

21 Megaphobia @ Oakwood

Greatest wooden coaster in the UK without a doubt!

22 Icon @ Blackpool Pleasure Beach

TWO stunning launches, LUDICROUSLY smooth, beautiful soundtrack... not intense- but insanely fun and re-rideable. Seriously, hands down, my favourite coaster in the UK.

It is a great ride that is also very comfortable as well as enjoyable for everyone.

23 The Vampire @ Chessington

An ideal coaster to get you into the bigger coasters, fast through those trees, atmospheric starting place well made and a couple of those turns get you going...

Best ride ever! Great for adults and first timers! With it's small height restriction anyone can enjoy this floor- less adventure!

24 Rage @ Adventure Island
25 Mumbo Jumbo @ Flamingo Land
