2 Intamin

As much as I could go on about b&m, these guys truly take the cake. First of all, they are one of the few coaster makers to do rides for Disney (that alone is worth a spot here). They have made 2 of the most acclaimed coasters, bizarro (new England) and millenium force. They are just one of the best coaster makers flat out

Although B&M are amazing, they only make a select few different types of coasters, while intamin makes any kind of coaster you can think of. they do kiddie coasters, launching inverted, etc. THEY INVENTED THE GIGA COASTER. and millennium force is consistently rated #1 and 2 for the last 14 years.

Manufacturers of American Eagle, Skull Mountain, Superman: Escape From Krypton, Volcano: The Blast Coaster, Ride Of Steel, Millennium Force, Possessed, Superman: the Ride, California Screamin', Wicked Twister, Xcelerator, Top Thrill Dragster, Storm Runner, Kingda Ka, El Toro, Maverick, Fahrenheit, Intimidator 305, Cheetah Hunt, and Skyrush.

Millennium Force, Maverick, Top Thrill Dragster, Kingda Ka, Superman the Ride, El Toro, all amazing rides. an there's amazing ones I didn't name

4 Arrow Dynamics

They are the fathers of the modern steel coaster. Their coasters may be a bit more jerky than modern coasters, but it was the 1980s and computer design didn't exist.

Even if their rides are a little rough, they made good coasters and they are the true fathers of the modern amusement industry.

Even though they made rough coasters I love how innovative they were

I enjoy every ride they have created.

15 Zamperla

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

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 Dinn Corporation

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

18 Giovanola

Manufacturers of Goliath and Titan.

19 Dynamic Structure

Manufacturers of Space Mountain

20 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.
