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!

This list includes some of the scariest roller coasters, the tallest roller coasters, the fastest roller coasters, and the most thrilling roller coasters in the world. While the US seems to have a bit of a monopoly on the greatest roller coasters, one of the top roller coasters in the world, the Steel Dragon 2000, can be found in Japan at the Nagashima Spa Land. 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).

What is the world's best roller coaster? Where can I find the greatest roller coaster in the world? Hopefully you'll be able to answer these questions and more (like what states have the best roller coasters) after checking out this list of the top roller coasters in the world. If you don't see your favorite roller coaster on this list of the world's greatest roller coasters, make sure to add it so thrill seekers everywhere can check it out.
