Top Ten Types of Roller Coasters


The Top Ten

1 Inverted

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

It really depends on the actual ride. For example; I'm not a big fan of the Batman: The Ride clones. But then you've got rides like Raptor... And how about Montu? Or Alpengeist? Yeah, this decision is easy. Second place is a flying coaster. - ThatStrangeKid42


Banshee is #1!

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

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

Millennium Force is all I have to say

8 Sit Down

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

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?

I just love wooden roller coasters! My favorite one was designed by Herbert Schmeck and was called the "Comet" at Meyers Lake in Canton, Ohio! Hardly and recognition goes to this awesome, yet sadly demolished jem! I just hope that Philadelphia Toboggan still has the plans for this ride and can reconsturct it! The Pheonix and Knobels Grove Amusement park simply pales in comparison!

The Contenders

11 RMC inverting woodie

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.
