Legendary Coasters

March 7, 2011

Here is a list of some coasters that are famous or has a large impact either within the coaster community or not. A legendary coaster should be at least 20 years old and can be open or closed. Remember, This is not a list of the best coasters (Here is a list of my favorites).

The Beast at King’s Island – this coaster has been the world’s longest woody for over 30 years.

The Racer at King’s Island – this coaster was so popular that it started a coaster revolution that is still going on today.

The Matterhorn Bobsleds at Disneyland – this coaster was the first steel coaster ever.

Corkscrew at Knott’s Berry Farm – this coaster was the first to successfully go upside down.

The Revolution at Six Flags Magic Mountain – this coaster was the second to go upside down and has been featured in lots of movies.

Magnum Xl 200 at Cedar Point – this was the first to go over 200 feet in height and was also the first out a back steel coaster.

The Cyclone at Astroland– this coaster is the most famous in the world.

Big Bad Wolf at Busch Gardens Williamsburg – this was the first successful suspended coaster.

Drachen Fire at Busch Gardens Williamsburg – this is the most famous closed coaster.
