2 Intamin

Don't get me wrong- I love b+m and RMC but for me those two focus on making a few types of ride and not much else and so even though I believe they are actually better at making roller coasters, I see intamin as the best overall roller coaster manufacturers due to their variety of rides.

While they lack the reliability, they more than make up for in engineering some of the best rides known.

Intamin is the BEST! They have made all of my favorite rides.

It yeet a lot example el toro in six flags ni

3 Rocky Mountain Construction

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.

So good for a new manufacturer. - Maddox121

Every coaster they make/upgrade is amazing

Their tracks are insane as well as being very smooth

7 Gerstlauer

One of the leading roller coaster manufacturer in Europe

Gerstlauer create some amazing coasters such as 'The Smiler' at Alton Towers, Staffordshire. Their roller coasters have excellent theming on them and they are quite smooth.. Id love to see more Gerstlauer rollercoasters in the future.

The Contenders

11 Great Coasters International

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

15 Cancer Studios

Better than Pinfari

Taylor Bybee smokes too much...

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 B&M

Why is this here? - Poseidon

...why? - Poseidon

18 Pinfari

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

Still sucks but first looping coaster, other than Relevtion at six flags - Poseidon

Well, the others suck...

Quality coasters

21 Zierer

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

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

Manufactured Wicked at Lagoon, Impulse at Knoebels, Verbolten at Busch Gardens Europe, and many coasters over seas. They are a relatively new company

22 GCI

Great wooden coasters, smooth and intense

23 Golden Horse
24 Dinn Corporation

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

25 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.

26 Jim Reid-Anderson

Loves That Larson Superloop

27 John Allen

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

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.

28 Zamperla

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

Zamperla sucks

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