The Tallest Coasters That I’ve Ridden
Last week’s poll on the Coasterblog Facebook page asked what your favorite 300+ foot tall coaster is. I’ve been on many of the largest monstrosities in the country. Here’s a list of the tallest coasters I’ve ridden along with their heights and their rankings in overall coasters:
- Kingda Ka at Six Flags Great Adventure- 456 feet- #1 in the world
- Top Thrill Dragster at Cedar Point- 420 feet- #2 in the world
- Superman: Escape From Krypton at Six Flags Magic Mountain- 415 feet- #3 in the world
- Millennium Force at Cedar Point- 310 feet- #6 in the world
- Titan at Six Flags over Texas- 245 feet – #13 in the world
- Goliath at Six Flags Magic Mountain- 235 feet- #15 in the world
- Diamondback at King’s Island- 230 feet- #17 in the world (tie)
- Nitro at Six Flags Great Adventure- 230 feet- #17 in the world (tie)
- Mr. Freeze Reverse Blast- 218 feet- #24 in the world
- Wicked Twister at Cedar Point- 215 feet- #27 in the world
The wood coaster rankings are only for wood. For example, I am listing El Toro as the world’s 4th tallest woody, not world’s 4th tallest coaster.
- El Toro at Six Flags Great Adventure- 181 feet- #4 in the world
- The Rattler at Six Flags Fiesta Texas- 179 feet- #5 in the world
- Mean Streak at Cedar Point- 161 feet- #7 in the world
- Colossus at Six Flags Magic Mountain- 125 feet-#14 in the world
- Cyclone at Six Flags New England- 112 feet- #26 in the world
- The Beast at Kings Island- 110 feet- #27 in the world
- Gwazi at Busch Gardens Tampa- 105 feet- #39 in the world (tie)
- Great American Scream Machine at Six Flags over Georgia- 105 feet- #39 in the world (tie)
- Apocalypse: The Ride at Six Flags Magic Mountain- 95 feet- #69 in the world (tie)
- Georgia Cyclone at Six Flags over Georgia- 95 feet- #69 in the world (tie)
Cedar Point and Six Flags Magic Mountain are tied as the parks with the most coasters in this list, they each have 4. Six Flags Great Adventure only had three coasters in the list however my tallest wood and my tallest steel are both located there.
You can see that I’m not the most traveled by wood coaster standards. I’ll try to ride more woodies in the future. You can see a list of the world’s tallest coasters on the RCDB.
