Best Roller Coaster Manufacturers

The Top Ten
1 B&M

They may not produce the very best coasters, but they have had insane consistency. They also have mastered many things that park-goers will not notice or care about, watch GP to Enthusiast's video for more on why B&M is amazing.

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.

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

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!

2 Intamin

As good as B&M is, there is just one problem with them that I can't overlook... Their coaster designs are somewhat predictable. Intamin, on the other hand has so much uniqueness to their designs. None of their coaster designs are the same and always have something fresh. Apart from this, they are smooth, reliable, and they never fail to impress me.

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.

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.

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

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

100% Rmc has to be number 1, the have made in 4 years so much awesome coasters! Wildfire and Lightning the best wooden coasters in the world!

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.

Although some of their coasters are on the rough side, they paved the way for other manufacturers. Without them and their innovative ways, we wouldn't have some of the roller coaster designs we have today, such as looping, hyper and 4D coasters

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

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.

5 Vekoma

Oh and the ost hated coaster model ever made by Vekoma

The Vekoma SLC or Sucks Like Crap... Coaster Studios Parody.

Great company, smooth and thrilling rides. Disney and Efteling definetally realized this company was great

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

Really good my favourite coaster is from Vekoma

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

They have the greatest variety of coasters/ attractions and have such great theming on their trains. I was debating between Mack and B&M, but I think B&M is more of a thrill seekers paradise, but Mack has a ride for everyone.

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

Really good and smooth evey one I loved

7 Gerstlauer

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.

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

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

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 Schwarzkopf

The King Kobra of Kings dominion

15 Cancer Studios

Better than everything imaginable

Taylor Bybee smokes too much...


World class!

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.

If only PTC did not use those horrible individual lap bars, it would be better. Bring back the buzz bars!

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)

Great wooden coasters, smooth and intense

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

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

Gotta hate this company...

Well, the others suck...

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.

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

Manufacturers of Goliath and Titan.

Um whos the other guy?

20 Custom Coasters International

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

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

21 Zierer

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

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

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

Treetops is a great family coaster

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

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.

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

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