Top Ten Worst Roller Coasters

The Top Ten

1 Mind Eraser - Six Flags America

Well I went on this and I came of with a bloody nose! That was a piece of crap!

It erases your mind.

Never been on it, I am glad

The one at Elitch Gardens in Denver is very uncomfortable. It violently jerks your head around.

2 Anaconda - Kings Dominion

My Anaconda don't, my anaconda don't, my anaconda want none

The corkscrew was extremely painful.

I don't want none.

This was my 2nd looped roller coaster, so I mean I really like this one. Ye, it's rough but I am tough so that's ok.

3 Hurler - Kings Dominion

Most painful wooden coaster I've ever been on

Three minutes of pain

4 Manhattan Express - New York, New York Hotel & Casino

Of course Togo makes rough and painful rides, but with one that is 203 feet tall, I'd find it hard to ride. - jaguarkid140

Now they just call it "Roller Coaster" - N64Dude

Ok so, I went on this and I had so many headaches for the two weeks after I got off this piece of crap! I went on it alone and, yeah, this coaster is actually overrated! Not that it gets any love but, it deserves less than it actually gets, if that even makes sense! I cried on it and, it hurt so much and I actually fractured a slight part of my skull on it! Togo should let Intamin make their rides good. If it was smooth, it would be a great ride and apart that the inversions do not even make sense, if it was smooth, I would be okay with it

So... Yeah

Togo went out of business. Look up Windjammer Surf Racers at Knotts Berry Farm, it was such a failure that knotts sued Togo. - railfan99

5 Ninja - Six Flags Over Georgia

The ride was built incorrect. For some reason, the engineers thought it would be an "ingenious" idea for the track to actually turn in the middle of the vertical loop. Needless to say, my favorite part of the ride was the break run.

That absolute most PAINFUL ride still in existence. It hurts your head just to look at it. If It didn't hurt, It would be fun. - EricShayna

I don't normally hate coasters, but Ninja, man that thing sucks. I actually had to come up with a brace position just to be able to tolerate riding it. Why is Six Flags tearing down the amphitheater for the new water park when they could easily tear down this disgrace to coasterkind.

I rode Ninja for the first time when I was five years old and got whipped around so much and so hard that I had to get ice packs to put on my head to help with the pain. Good thing SFOG refurbished it because it definitely needed to be refurbished!

6 Corkscrew - Cedar Point

It was very painful so people with spine issues shouldn't go on the corkscrew at cedar point! It was one of the 2 roller coasters at cedar point!

Main reason why I hate Arrow. I've been riding this for years now, and I still don't like it today.

The one of the worst rides ever

NOO! WHY IS TATSU NUMBER ONE!? By the way, Corkscrew sucks. - ThatStrangeKid42

7 Mean Streak - Cedar Point

I grayed out on the ride from the sheer pain it caused and I had to take ibuprofen like candy the night that I rode it. I'm glad I rode it because of the nostalgia and that it is being redesigned now, I can at least say I experienced the original. Would I ride it again if I had the chance? NO

Awful... Yes woodies are supposed to be rough but this thing is painfully rough to the point where I sprained my rib... On top of that the pacing is bad, and the MCBR kills any chance for speed or airtime. This ride is awful. Go on Blue Streak it is a much better coaster with more airtime.

Not only is it painful, but its very long, slow, and boring!

They tore this down

V 6 Comments
8 Tatsu - Six Flags Magic Mountain

I've never been there andi just voted to say to whoever said this is awesome that this is supposed to be the WORST not best roller coasters.

This is supposed to be worst not best coasters

Who ever put this at number 1 is plain stupid

The inversion almost killed me, other than that, it’s a good ride, and I don’t see why many good rides are on the list?

V 8 Comments
9 Wicked Twister - Cedar Point

Why in the world is Tatsu number one!?!? - ThatStrangeKid42

Boring! Just a two pump chump.

What a neck snapper.

I guess it's ok for people who are scared of real coasters. No stomach drop, no inversions, no airtime and being blinded by the sun = lame

10 Great American Scream Machine - Six Flags Great Adventure

Rough and painful, this proves to be a pile of junk. Most rides designed by Arrow are very rough, but this proves to be possibly their worst ride, rides like the Demon at Six Flags Great America is rougher, but unlike this ride, it is well themed and a very fun and exciting ride. - jaguarkid140

Thank God This Is Gone!

The Newcomers

? Kumba - Busch Gardens Tampa USA
? Skyrush - Hersheypark

The Contenders

11 Sidewinder - Hershey Park

Another Vekoma copy. Like most boomerangs, it will gave you an intense headache, and it provides a quick, uncomfortable, and painful experience that is not worth waiting in line for. - jaguarkid140

This will probably be the last Hershey Park rollercoaster I'll ride; I've heard so many negative comments about it, including my dad's.

This ride busted my stomach it hurt for a week all because of this piece of crap ride

Best vekoma boomerang, not rough at all

12 Medusa - Six Flags Discovery Kingdom

Best ride I ever been on!

I had a heart attack on this line.

Lol kraken is better

Gtfo asiaplayer you member of the GP

13 Star Flyer - Star City

Look at this they think its giant but it's the smallest suspended roller coaster in the world and they think it an inverted. - asiaplayer1122

But if you will ride on it it will make thrill..

It's a Pinfari. Need I say more?

14 Nitro - Six Flags Great Adventure

Rated number 3 every year for best steel coaster.
Not sure why this is on the list.
Bunch of trolls

Nitro is my favorite coaster. It's so much better than El toro and also skyrush

How The Hell Is This One Of The Worst!?
It's One Of The Best

Can you scream "Overrated"? You just described this thing. I got a bad ride on it, and it's nowhere near as forceful as Skyrush or any other Intamin hyper.

15 Canyon Blaster - Adventuredome

Take a bottle of advil with you

This should definitely be #1

Headbanger, hurts bad, ride and get ready for a MAJOR migrane

THIS THING WILL GIVE YOUR HEAD THE WORST PAIN EVER!

16 Magnum XL-200 - Cedar Point

This is not one of the worst. Sure it is rough, but it was the first coaster over 200 feet. This was a groundbreaking rollercoaster at the time! It is only rough because it is old.

I rode this when I was 8 and I got whiplash injury and I rode it again when I was 12 and I screamed I'm gonna die. This is the roughest ride ver.

You must be crapping me sideways here! This coaster owns you wusses.

This is probably the roughest steel coaster in the world.Though it was the first ever hyper coaster it was the roughest.The airtime hills were actually feeling like sudden jerky movement that hurts your head,back,or legs(If there big enough)

17 Superman The Escape - Six Flags Magic Mountain

Now called: Superman: Escape from Krypton

But it's still awesome - N64Dude

Why is this the 6th worst rollercoaster in the world? I think it's great based on stats and point of view's

It's just so short

I mean look at this junk and non-sense when people ride it later you wake up the fun is over. - asiaplayer1122

18 Merlin's Revenge - Castle Park

I don't Know anything about this rollercoaster

V 2 Comments
19 Vortex - King's Island

With typical roughness of an Arrow, and over cumbering restraints, this ride takes the cake. Thought I guess it can be comparable to rides such as Orient Express or Diamondback - jaguarkid140

Have you had your daily dose of head trauma... Take one ride on this piece crap and call your physician in the morning... If you can! - chad.brown.3551

I love this ride! - funnyuser

Sometimes, arrow just, fails, this is defenetly (really hard to spell for me :/) a fail for them, they have 2 other similar models, at Carowinds and California's Great America, they both suck

20 Thi3teen - Alton Towers

Quite good, but a little dissapointing. However, I haven't been on ANY of these coasters, as I haven't visited america. - nic1997ps3

It's not in America, it's in the UK. but, as for the coaster, I was kind of disappointed at how mild it was. other than the freefall section, it's pretty much a kiddie ride. even the trains are the exact same type that intamin uses on their family coasters.

1. Should be thirteen

It gives you high anticipation, but when it happens, it turns out to be a boring coaster for pussies.
There are better coasters out there.

21 Shockwave - Kings Dominion

Togo Built this. Enough said.

This ride is closed. - railfan99

22 Space Mountain - Walt Disney World Resort Space Mountain - Walt Disney World Resort Space Mountain is the name of a space-themed indoor roller coaster attraction located at five of the Magic Kingdom-style Disney Parks.

It's too jerky and will hurt your back and neck, Disneyland's is better.

OKAY WHOEVER SAID THIS IS THE WORST PERSON EVER. This is a general family coaster for all ages. It was actually my first major ride. I sound it enjoyable and I will forever. Even the refurbishment was good, a soundtrack was even added. Now sure, the disneyland one is generally better, but this one should at least be rated as an 'Okay' ride.

Sure, complain all you want, but Space Mountain makes a lot of sense being on this list if you remember the original version vs. the new version. You can't see anything anymore. Remember when the rockets glowed in the dark? You could kind of make out where you were going. Think Disney would let that continue? HA HA HA HA HA, NOPE! They ruined a classic ride. - railfan99

23 Superman Ultimate Flight - Six Flags Over Georgia

I actually liked this roller coaster. It was my second favorite at the park behind Goliath. I would definitely recommend this one.

Manta at Sea World Orlando is better.

Why is this on the worst list. This ride is awesome.

This coaster is good

24 Goliath - Six Flags Over Georgia

Let me just say this coaster is epic must ride in front!

I don't get this. I love this rollercoaster! Why is it on the worst list?

NOT COOL MAN I LOVE IT WIDOW.com ha you have been placed@the worst.com ever its number 1

I really liked it why did you put it here

25 Ninja - Six Flags St. Louis

This ride is really bad really slow and bangs your head

Feels like you're being beaten up by a ninja

A very rough and jerky experience

I have absolutely no reason why this rough Arrow Looper isn't higher. Nitro at SFGAdv and Tatsu - both of which are great B&Ms, are higher on this list, don't really know why. Ninja is rough and jerky and has horrible inversions. The corkscrew and helix at the end of the ride really kills it. SFStL should just demolish it because they could really put something cool in its place. By far my least favorite coaster at SFStL and one of the least favorites that I have ridden. Ninja should really be higher up.

26 The Smiler - Alton Towers

Lol just because there was an accident on the ride doesn't mean it is a bad ride.
Idiot gp.

The reason why I put it on this list is because this roller coaster has had a series of significant mechanical problems. - railfan99

Just because the Smiler crashed in 2015 does not mean it's a bad ride. It was down to human error and not the ride itself.

The actual ride is phenomenal and an exhilirating experience.

27 Kong - Six Flags Discovery Kingdom

It shakes you so hard you have a million bruises on your head from it shaking around!

And I SO do NOT agree with whoever ditched medusa! It th best ride ever!

28 Grizzly - Kings Dominion

Grizzly is old and made of wood witch has to bend flex shrink and grow. All wooden coasters get rough but this was the second roller coaster I've ridden the first being the scooby Doo. But way better then Hurler. In my opinion the Grizzly is way better then those steel monsters that rust but all roller coasters are hated because the age of the material age

I know that there are many mixed opinions about this figure-8 coaster, but in my opinion, it is rough, uninteresting, and will give you an extreme headache. Many people believe that it is the worst wooden coaster ever created. - jaguarkid140

never rode it going back there over and over - powerpufflover

Better then Hurler at Kings Dominion

29 Ricochet - Carowinds

If Ninja is the ultimate headache machine, Ricochet is the ribcage killer. Once again, don't normally hate coasters, but this thing sucks

30 Raven - Holiday World

How dare thus coaster is on here, this is not most overrated people it's worst, so stop putting amazing coasters on this countdown, make a overrated coasters if you want to do that - u_maddox_bro

HOLIDAY WORLD IS OVERATED TOO. Rant aside, it's just terrible that it is so well loved.

31 Son of Beast - King's Island

Ugh, nearly every coaster enthusiast will agree that the SoB is painful and belongs here. Hyper coasters, wooden terrain coasters, and looping coasters are great ride designs, and I guess the designers at RCCA thought it would be a great concept to combine the three, and ended up creating a real horribly executed beast. Luckily the loop was later removed, and now the ride just sits, not in operation unlike it's father, the Beast, an excellent ride. - jaguarkid140

This ride is the roughest. Pure roughness. With a LOOP! (2000-2006) But when I rode it, the loop was already taken down. I hated the ride. But I will admit, I am a little sad that they tore it down. I'll miss it, even though I hated it. They could've done an Iron Horse treatment, but oh well. Looking' forward to Banshee though

I hate this ride! I'm so glad it wuz torn down! I was only 8 when I first rode it and let me tell you they have horrible seatbelts! There is a loose seatbelt and then you have to hold on! I was about to fall! And I was crying! My mom and little brother said they heard the ground thumping! So this ride has long lines and is just bad!

Glad it was demolished

32 Millennium Force - Cedar Point

Intimdator 305 belongs in this spot. Millenium Force is one of the best coasters of the 150+ I've been on. I-305 makes you black out, no air time, and just a bunch of twisting around. One of the worst.

Most disappointing coaster in the park. Should be called millennium forceless! No airtime whatsoever.

I've rode this coaster honestly I think a kings dominion the intimidator 305 eats up the millinnium force and craps it all over cedar point

You stupid

33 Blue Streak - Cedar Point

It was so uncomfortable, the seats were really tiny. And the coaster was just a bunch of steep hills and nothing else. No loops or corkscrews or anything.

Cedar point should of called it the boo! Streak because it terrible.

The seats were really small and uncomfortable and all it is is a bunch of big hills. - Gunner224

34 Seven Dwarfs Mine Train - Magic Kingdom Park

This ride is for Pussies

It’s just a small ride for little ones who are not into big ones, sure it’s fun for kids and some youngsters, but not for thrill junkies.

35 Hero - Flamingo Land

The pain this ride delivers is unbearable. It's like being in a dog cage in the middle of a car crash.

Pain. Absolute pain. Nothing else.

Don’t forget the absolute stench from the pad under your chin!

36 Gwazi - Busch Gardens Tampa
37 X(2) - Six Flags Magic Mountain

Now this will be incredibly surprising, and unless you are some coaster geek (like me), you would know that this ride would help drive the company, Arrow Dynamics, into bankruptcy. The prototype ride was $36 million to construct, and was another $10 million when S&S renovated it. That is almost twice as much as Millennium Force, and more than 6 times as much as The Voyage! It isn't the most reliable ride either and drove the company, created by the two veterans as just a machine shop Carl Bacon and Ed Morgan, into bankruptcy. Such a shame that the manufacturers of the first tubular steel coasters, modern inversions, and hyper coasters no longer existing with their classic coasters (such as the big bad wolf) are slowly being removed. - jaguarkid140

38 Hurler - Carowinds

I road this a month ago and there's one small hill and your head gets jerked around slot but I love carowinds.

Hurler At kings dominion is worse than the one at carowinds

This one hasn't been that bad ever since they retracked it.

It's so jerky it's jerkier than beef jerky. Carowinds only bad ride.

39 Goudurix - Parc Asterix

There have been many coasters on this list that aren't supposed to be on here but thanks to Goudurix's pain, the list now has one coaster that is meant to be on here.

I'm glad I've never been on this! But I can tell it's the true worst coaster, not great rides like Nitro.

No roller coaster comes close to as bad as goudurix

The French call this "Merde"!

40 Griffon - Busch Gardens Williamsburg

O. K, I wish I could of voted for this to be the BEST COASTER! This ride is AMAZINGLY awesome! Why don't you like this! It was my aunt's first rollercoaster period. She has never done one that can be considered a rollercoaster, and it's 2 ft. High, and cruddy. REAL FIRST ROLLERCOASTER! You know what, she loved it!

This ride is tall, fast, and ULTRA SMOOTH! It shouldn't be on this Worst Coasters list

41 The Dark Knight - Six Flags Great Adventure

I hate this one. Also it's in Six Flags Great America. It's just sitting inside while you move up and down while looking at things pop out.

Not what I expected at all! It's basically the wild mouse in a room. Great movie, bad ride.

It is SO BAD. You are inside and can't see anything while there are things popping out. Not fun.

V 1 Comment
42 Iron Wolf - Six Flags Great America

Now it is apocalypse and it's as good as one. Because it is old (first from b&m) and a stand up coaster. But I can't be too hard because this was the first ever b&m

43 Coast Rider - Knotts Berry Farm

Who ever replaced a ride with this!

44 Wildcat - Hersheypark

This roller coaster is so rough and painful, when I got off, I had chest pain and a headache for the rest of the day.

Seriously? This coaster's one of my favorites. The roughness and speed make it fun. I'd ride it over and over, and the good part is there's usually a smaller line than that of other coasters.

Bo Wildcat sucks

What why is this here? I love this ride!

45 Pirate's Hideaway - Playland's Castaway Cove

That ride is at Casino Pier at Seaside Heights, not Playland's Castaway Cove

Well, it is boring and has no pirates. Enough said.

46 Tornado - M&D's
47 Shamu Express - SeaWorld Orlando

It's just a kiddie coaster, not fun for enthusiasts.

48 Psyclone - Six Flags Magic Mountain

A clone of the famous Cyclone at Astroland (thus the name), it incorporates the same layout. Unlike most clones (the best has to be The Viper at Six Flags Great America), it is a headache of warped wood, and it is not a surprised it was removed from the park. - jaguarkid140

First only and last time I took a night ride on it when I came off I could barely lift my head for almost a week. horrible ride. good riddance

49 Ultra Twister - Various Six Flags Parks

Here is what I would consider a poorly executed idea on a ride, it is incredibly rough (even for a ride made by TOGO). The tight restraints only make the horrid beating even more uncomfortable. Arrow Dynamics and Intamin AG also designed a prototype of the pipeline coaster, luckily those weren't used. - jaguarkid140

There was only one Ultra Twister. The ride was scrapped a few years after Astroworld's demolition. Why is the title "various Six Flags"?

V 1 Comment
50 Disaster Transport - Cedar Point

It's just a U. Yes, a U. It is not even long. It take 10 seconds. This should have been the worst ride right behind the Wild Cat. They both are terrible. There is no thrill what so ever -_-

A piece of junk that Cedar Point is trying to hold on. The ride isn't thrilling, the theming sucks and it's SO hot in the line. - EricShayna

This not so thrilling ride was torn down. They say a Dive coaster will come in its place at 2016
