Top Ten Types of Roller Coasters


The Top Ten

1 Inverted

Alpengeist and nemesis are both epic! would always pick these

Banshee is #1!


Inverted coasters provide such an intense feeling of flying, especially Batman: The Ride at multiple Six Flags locations.

2 Winged

Wing Coasters Deliver an experience like no other coaster. Ride Gatekeeper at Cedar Point or X-Flight at Six Flags Great America. Wing Coasters are so fun and smooth!

3 Flying

Pretzel loop is definitely my favorite element - FearTheWeird300

It feels so smooth and it is so fast and fun. I wish they were more common.

4 Hyper

They are just fun

Hyper Coasters/Giga Coastera are the best! So much airtime and most of them are very smooth. Intimidator 305, Fury 325, Leviathan, Millennium Force, Diamondback, Behemoth, Goliath at SFLR, Nitro and Intimidator are just some examples of the awesome Hypers/Gigas!

I love ir, it should be the number 1, like shambhala is

5 Dive

This is the best, a little splash of water in the body, never hurt anyone

6 Accelerator Accelerator

Premier Rides perfected the accelerator coaster with Mr. Freeze and Poltergeist/Joker's Jinx. Intamin broke records with Top Thrill Dragster, Kingda Ka and Formula Rossa. Accelarator coasters are always an amazing rush. - sunnydhamm

7 Giga

Millennium Force is all I have to say

This type of roller coasters should be the number one

My favorite one is millennium force.

I love roller coasters. I especially love Giga coasters

8 Sit Down

Love sit down coasters. Stand up's are horrible but flying coasters are good. - coasterjunkie196

These coasters will always deliver a thrill and never go out of style, plus the loopers have got some of the coolest looking and most recognizable track layouts in the park.

Inverted are cool but are sometimes short or bumpy. But sit down can have big thrills and are smooth.

9 Stand Up

... Togo... is just bad...just...don't...ride togos - Poseidon

10 Woodie

What started them all... - coasterjunkie196

Wooden Coasters are the best. Feeling all the shaking and roughness, as well as being able to jump in your seat, make these coasters a blast. They will always be the best.

Out of control and fun to ride. While steel coasters are dominating I still prefer the old fashioned wooden coaster.

El Toro anyone?

The Contenders

11 RMC inverting woodie

Why the frick is this at 11?

Stupid gp put this at 11

The thrills of a woodie BUT ITS STEEL AND SMOOTH it also can do inversions


12 Bobsled

The Matterhorn at Disneyland has a track. Some doesn't even have a track. Six Flags Great Adventure used to have one of those.

13 Floorless

Floorless coasters are smooth, fun and feature a lot of inversions, the only one I have rode was Kraken, love it

14 4D Free Fly Coaster

I like the flipping on these rides.

15 Mine Train

LOVE mine trains. They're the kind of coaster anyone can handle, and many of them are great first coasters. My first coaster was Runaway Mine Train at Six Flags Great Adventure. - coasterjunkie196

A classic

16 Strata

Because they are sooo tall.

17 Launched Launched
18 Dual Tracked

Most dual tracked wooden coasters both tracks go forward but Colossus at six flags magic mountain goes backwards during fright fest

19 Boomerangs

Way too many of these, but still good rides. - coasterjunkie196

These roller coasters have BACKWARDS LOOPS!

20 4th Dimension

These out and back coasters are one of the best in the world

21 Suspended

You should try iron Dragon at cedar point or ninja at six flags magic mountain

22 Wild Mouse
23 SLC Vekoma

SLC Vekomas are AMAZING! Best restraints, smooth rides, and awesome layouts! (sarcasm) - coasterjunkie196

Horrible rollercoaster, avoid these at all cost
