List Rules Any rollercoaster in the world

The best roller coasters in the world, all in one list, ranked from best roller coaster to worst. These are top roller coasters at amusement parks and other fun time facilities. Some of these amazing roller coasters even reside in the best theme parks for roller coaster junkies. Convenient!

If you're looking for a heart-stopping roller coaster ride, you'll find options on nearly every continent (there are no roller coasters in Antarctica...yet).
