Top Ten Best UK Rollercoasters

A list of all the awesome rollercoasters in the UK.

The Top Ten

1 Nemesis @ Alton Towers

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)

This was my first proper coaster and it's STILL THE BEST! Great theming. Great G-forces. Great design. Great experience. What more could you ask for?

PROBABLY THE MOST LOVED ROLLECOASTER IN THE UK.

Best ride I’ve been on still running for 24 years from 2018 great ride

4 Oblivion @ Alton Towers

IT MAY JUST BE ONE DROP, BUT IT IS AN INTENSE DROP.

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

Better than apocalypse
More exhilarating

5 The Smiler @ Alton Towers

Amazing coaster, after you get off you wonder which way is up

Brilliant best in uk

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

Its spinny and fast I feel like the character afterwards

6 The Ultimate @ Lightwater Valley

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

A thrilling cocktail of speed, drops and so long! "

The ultimate is so fun

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

7 Dragon's Fury @ Chessington World of Adventures

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

Nothing like the others but great for those kids

8 Th13teen @ Alton Towers

Awesome ride, love the free fall and how you go backwards at the end. - nic1997ps3

Thirteen is awesome the drop in the dark is so cool

9 Grand National @ Blackpool

This is one of my favourite wooden roller coasters in the world plenty of jump out of your seat moments and good drop

Twin track racing wooden coaster. Still the best.

Good old fashioned fun

10 Rita @ Alton Towers

A FAST RIDE. THAT IS IT BUT IT IS STILL FUN!

The Contenders

11 Shockwave @ Drayton Manor

The only stand up coaster in Europe, it has the height, the drop and the inversions and I liked the way how it was over the rapids the best coaster at Drayton manor but I did not like the station the queue line or the slow lift hill personally I would give it 4 stars

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!

Perfect! Not much more you can ask for! It pulls a lot of g-force and it is probably the uk's most terrifying roller coaster

TALL, FAST, FUN. WHAT MORE CAN YOU ASK FOR.

The launch is petrifying the second those lights flashed green I regretted my decision deeply but once it started it was fun :D

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. - Shadsilvson11

So good feels like a pinball!

Imagine is they made a vurtual reallity ride based on sonic riders?

19 Nemesis Inferno @ Thorpe Park

SMOOTH, AMAZING, ZERO-G ROLL IS THE BEST!. I really need to go on it now, it beats Nemesis by far!

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

A FUN THRILL RIDE FOR ALL KIND OF THRILL SEEKERS.

Not as good as the one at alton towers

20 Kumali @ Flamingo Land

Epic ride, upside on the rollercoasters all the way!

Deserves to be the best

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

Looks stunning jutting out over the lake

My best ride ever

21 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!

A great inverted coaster you can take the kids on

Best coaster in the South

This is a great ride so fast and tall for a suspended coaster and that back to back inversion Is intense 4.6 G!
