Top 10 Wooden Roller Coasters

The Top Ten

El Toro

This is my favorite coaster out of both steel AND wood coasters.

6 Flags Great Adventure

The best Wooden Coaster ever hands down!

Best wooden rollercoaster

The Voyage

The most intense wooden coaster out there, it's an airtime machine! Better than the beast - u_maddox_bro

No better airtime. Representin the best state in America

Beats Beast and any RMCs I’ve ever ridden

Outlaw Run

I think El Toro is better, but this needs to be higher! I want to ride it so bad!

Son of Beast more xtreme than it, but Son of Beast is closed.

The best next to el toro

This is scary thunderation was my first roller coaster after that I felt alive than I went to fireman's landing it felt horrible my stomach felt funny still awesome though than wild fire and I rode the pirate ship I puked and than the barn swing and than the big boy outlaw run it was truly the scariest roller coaster in silver dollar city 🎢 that is a rollercoaster

Lightning Rod

The worlds first and fastest wood launch coaster

Lightning rod for the win. the quad down is my favorite element on any coaster - theinsanelycooljaredkleinman

The Beast

The Beast beats you up a little, sure, but only if you're new: it's preparing you. With some practice, you learn to avoid any and all headaches from the ride... It is thrilling, but not too intense. You think the theme, when you're new, is that you are trying to escape the "Beast." Soon though, you become aware that you aren't running from the Beast: you are the Beast, running through the forest. It's a classic.

There is no comparing to the longest wooden roller coaster in the world and the longest roller coaster in America. Also, get son of beast outta here considering it no longer exists.

The beast is my favorite roller coaster. As of September 2014, the beast is the smooth wooden roller coaster in Kings Island. I didn't notice the roughness on any parts of the ride, compared to the racer.

All others are measured by the beast


Airtime is surprisingly insane.

Lots of air time


Goliath (Six Flags Great America)

This is a RMC Hybrid...but I don't know - Poseidon

Boulder Dash

OKAY, THIS HAS CONTINUOUSLY BEEN RANKED THE BEST ROLLER COASTER IN THE WORLD. It's at Lake Compounce in Bristol, Connecticut, USA. It's so, so, so fast, with great views of the forest and lake. It's built on the hillside, and uses the environment to its advantage. It curves around the mountain, races through the trees, and passes by the lake. Amazing.

Just a great ride down a mountainside

T Express
Lightning Racer

Fun and intense!

The Contenders

American Eagle

6 Flags Great America

Texas Giant

6 Flags Gret Adventure

The Cyclone

My first wooden roller coaster


MY GOD! So LONG! Only pause is when you've went through so much you feel like you need to barf, then you see that you aren't even half way! Totally worth it to ride.

The Thunderhead

Love the massive 55 degrees first drop. Just remember to brace at the end as the brakes are quite sharp... Camera is on the left of the second drop.

My 2nd favorite coaster!

The Comet

Unbeaten classic been riding this for 40 years back in the crystal beach days of its life

A classic! - coasterjunkie196

Rolling Thunder

This ride is gone

American Thunder

I have ridden this coaster more than any other coaster so I can tell you that it is spectacular. It is pretty intense and has a super insane drop. It has some airtime. The best thing is that the lines are so short that you can just marathon this roller coaster. I believe I once rode this 14 times in a row. Other times I rode it 13 times in a row 12 times in a row 10 times in a row and 8 times in a row. Ninja also has super short lines but you cannot marathon it like you can with American Thunder because it is a super headbanger that would give me a migrane if I rode it like American Thunder.

Shivering Timbers

Good ride!

Wicker Man (Alton Towers)

Still is the smoothest and fast turning wooden coaster I have ridden to date

It just opened and it is absolutely amazing! No other wooden coaster can provide such an experience! Best wooden coaster in the UK and further proves that Alton Towers is the best park in the UK, and is definitely in the top 3 in Europe!

Thunderbird Powerland

Finlands best wooden roller coaster.

The Viper
Cu Chulainn (Tayto Park)

It's the highest wooden roller coaster in Europe and it's quite scary but super fun
