Best Roller Coaster Manufacturers

The Top Ten Best Roller Coaster Manufacturers

1 B&M

RMC mean streak aka steel Vengeance is such a great ride! The track is smooth and the inversions are thrilling. I can’t wait to ride it again!

They are the people who made a substantial number of coasters on my lists. Always smooth, awesome variety of coaster types, and several firsts in the industry. One of the best coaster makers ecer

B&M is Hands-down the smoothest and best engineered coasters in the industry. Every B&M coaster I've ridden has been smooth and comfortable and you can't beat their floorless designs like Dominator, Scream, Medusa, The Kraken, Sheikra and The Griffon (these are just the ones I've been able to ride so far) they are the best looping coasters I've ever ridden. Hyper Coasters are in a class al their own.

Innovative, smooth, reliable and long lasting, everything you want from a manufacturer.

2 Intamin

Intamin has the best roller coasters ever, from Millennium Force, Top Thrill Dragster, and Cheetah hunt. They even made a one of kind drop tower, Falcons Fury

Considering that Intamin holds multiple records, and that they have built the majority of coasters that are considered the best, I think Intamin deserves the #1 spot. They are so creative and innovative with their designs.

Their prefabs are literally the best woodies in the world
And don't get me started on the t-bars, the best restraints EVER

Intamin is an amazing company and has produced some incredible rides like skyrush

3 Rocky Mountain Construction

The smoothest coasters out there, those I-box conversions are insane. Airtimes are great. Can't wait for Jersey Devil next year

Insanely smooth rides with some of the best airtime and breathtaking coaster elements. All of their upgrades have been huge improvements and their new unique rides like the Raptor coasters are absolutely insane! I love how they didn't just stop at I-box and steel toppers, I think their new innovations will continue to get more and more thrilling. Also you gotta love the new and unique coaster elements they surprise you with on each of their rides.

Such unique and insane designs that no other manufacturer could replicate. also note that all their roller coasters are still in operation and none are relocated

They have the best name ideas by far. but they are perfect, smooth, tall, fast, fun, intense, and creative!

4 Arrow Dynamics

Although some of these manufacturer's coasters did not age well. Their influence, the innovation, the designs - paved way for the modern coasters we have today. They might be dissolved but they will be remembered. - SkyMatt

Sure, the seating is kind of average, but their roller coasters are the best in the world

Arrow Dynamics is AWESOME! They are the fathers of steel roller coasters and created the log flume and started the coaster wars!

The spark that started the fire, without them there would be no Coaster wars. They created the competition of build bigger and faster, indirectly creating some of our favorite rides. But still a little rough (literally) around the edges

5 Vekoma

Stole arrow track design

How is this on here? They made their first good ride last year. - ElephantEric

Really good my favourite coaster is from Vekoma

High reliability and low down-time.

6 Mack Rides

Smoothest rides I've ever been on in my life. Give an amazing ride, and always perfect for what they do. Journey to Atlantis and Manta are both the perfect family coasters, Helix is the perfect thrill ride, Mack always come out on top for me

Manufacturers of Avalanche, Ricochet, Wild Mouse, Technic Test Track, Project X, Manta, and Journey To Atlantis.

Amazing, one of the best. I love Blue Fire!

Helix. Best coaster.

7 Gerstlauer

Compact thrilling rides with low budgets, I love what they are doing

They are good roller coaster maker's as they created the monster called smiler and its pretty epic

Manufacturers of Monster, Mystery Mine, SpongeBob SquarePants Rock Bottom Plunge, Dare Devil Dive, Untamed, Iron Shark, and Pandemonium.

One of the leading roller coaster manufacturer in Europe

8 Great Coasters International

They make consistently great wooden coasters that are twisty and pack a punch.

Probably the best current builder of wooden coasters around!

Rides that are just fun and great to ride with families

There wooden coasters are GOOD

9 Morgan

Manufacturers and Steel Force, Mamba, Wild Thing, and Lightning Run.

Made the Best Hyper Coaster, example: Supermán el último escape and Steel Dragon



10 Schwarzkopf

The King Kobra of Kings dominion

Manufacturers of Mind Bender, Shock Wave, New Revolution, Sooperdooperlooper, and Colossus The Fire Dragon.

Kinda known for its cool loop track

and Montezuma's Revenge is the only Schwarzkopf Flywheel Shuttle Coaster in Knott's Berry Farm California - Poseidon


The Contenders

15 Cancer Studios

Better than everything imaginable

Taylor Bybee smokes too much...

Better than Pinfari

The best - X4AJ

16 Philadelphia Toboggan Company

As with Arrow Dynamics, this is a classic company that makes classic coasters. The main reason I think this company is so great is because of their trains, which only have a very loose lap bar. Coasters like the Voyage, the Raven, Twister, Phoenix, Ravine Flyer II, and The Beast all have PTC trains.

Manufacturers of Racer, Rebel Yell, Thunder Road, Screamin' Eagle, Comet, Blue Streak, Rollo Coaster, Ghoster Coaster, Woodstock Express, and Little Dipper.

17 GCI

Smooth and twisty. The Pure Wooden version of RMC. (Without inversions) - SkyMatt

You already put GCI at #11. That’s what great coasters international stands for

Great wooden coasters, smooth and intense

18 Pinfari

They made the best compact roller coasters. Any recent accidents have been to lack of maintenance due to small time operators.

Gotta hate this company...

Well, the others suck...

Quality coasters

19 Giovanola

Looks like someone did not do research.
Giovanola is one of the founding fathers of RCs (If there are). Bolliger and Mabillard were two of the engineers working on this company (Explaining the similar track designs). after bankruptcy, the two became industry partners forming what we known today as B&M.

Correction: They did not copy anyone's track. - SkyMatt

Manufacturers of Goliath and Titan.

Um whos the other guy? - Poseidon

Tried to copy B&M track design, and kinda failed... - Poseidon

20 Zierer

So another copy, not really but still, I thought Wicked was made by Mack... - Poseidon

Treetops is a great family coaster

The best family friend

Manufacturers of Jaguar, Catwoman's Whip, as well as many other Tivoli Coasters in the US

21 Custom Coasters International

Manufacturers of Boulder Dash, Raven, GhostRider, Boss, Hoosier Hurricane, Cornball Express, Legend, Lost Coaster Of Superstition Mountain, Shivering Timbers, Cyclops, Zeus, and Kingdom Coaster.

GhostRider was really fun, even better with the CGI Retrack. - Poseidon

22 Golden Horse
23 Roller Coaster Corporation of America (RCCA)

Managed to make the KING of woodies... and completely botch it. Used wood on Son of Beast, leading to it being untenable and thus force Cedar Fair to have to take it out after only 9 years. Other coasters include the original Rattler, the Great American Scream Machine, and something called Judge Roy Scream. Makes Dinn, outside of the original Beast, look like GCI or RMC. More so belongs on a "worst" list, but I'll settle for it forever being last, behind even Togo.

24 Jim Reid-Anderson

Really good quality cooking

Loves That Larson Superloop

25 John Allen

John allen knew more than everyone else, his coasters are timeless

Started the golden age of coaster design. If not for the Racer at King's Island, you would not enjoy all of these fabulous coasters that came after.

The best, racer, screamin eagle, associate on the beast

26 Zamperla

I love the Thunderbolt, Soaring Eagle and the Steeplechase at the Luna Park in Coney Island. Marcelo from Argentina.

Zamperla sucks

At least it made Pony Express at Knotts Berry Farm - Poseidon

Manufacturers of Soarin' Eagle, Steeplechase, MotoCoaster, Pony Express, and The Tickler

27 Dinn Corporation

Manufacturers of Mean Streak, Georgia Cyclone, Psyclone, Wolverine Wildcat, Old Texas Giant, Hercules, and Predator.

28 Dynamic Structure
