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

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.

Words cannot explain the feeling of Nemesis You really need to ride it for you to truly understand why it's the UK's number 1!

2 Avalanche @ Blackpool

Fun unique ride don't think it's as good as the big one though

3 The Big One @ Blackpool Pleasure Beach

Best drop in the uk by far!

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

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

An amazing drop perfect for thrill seekers

4 The Smiler @ Alton Towers

Fourteen inversions, and it pulls it off well.
great theming, always sorta freaks me out.
Smile always.

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.

5 Oblivion @ Alton Towers

Oh, that feeling you get right at the bottom. 10/10 would be thrown into a black hole again.

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

6 The Ultimate @ Lightwater Valley

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

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

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

The ultimate is so fun

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

It’s fun and I love the drop ❣️

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.

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

13 The Swarm @ Thorpe Park

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.

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

Beautiful ride amazing themeing super smooth my favourite is Swarm with nemesis amazing ride

14 Jubilee Odyssey @ Fantasy Island

Very underrated coaster it has the speed the drop the inversions the height and I would give it 3 1/2 stars did not like the head banging

Scary and very high up

Fastest slc in the country, amazing.

15 Colossus @ Thorpe Park

THE WORLDS FIRST TEN LOOPING ROLLERCOASTER.

TEN INVERSIONS! This made me feel sick but I prefer it to the Smiler

Amazing! Nearly as good as the smiler

Don't try me

16 Saw: The Ride @ Thorpe Park

GREAT THEMING.
GREAT DESIGN.
GREAT RIDE.

Great ride scary as hell but fun though

THE SPIKE THINGS GO SO CLOSE this was so good nemesis was pretty bad to be honest SAW ALL OF THE WAY

17 Air @ Alton Towers

Absolutely epic, such an exhilarating flight

Air amazing
The smiler first 14 looping coaster

THE ONLY B&M FLYING ROLLERCOASTER IN THE UK.

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.

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 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!

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

Looks stunning jutting out over the lake

20 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

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.

Class

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!

A great inverted coaster you can take the kids on

Best coaster in the South

Definitely this one.

25 Galactica @ Alton Towers

ITS AIR

26 Ashleigh Ride @ Ashleigh Land

THE BEST THEME PARK/RIDE EVER

27 Mumbo Jumbo @ Flamingo Land

One of the only chain lift loops in the world
