The Top 10 Longest Roller Coasters in the World

In this month, I will be bringing you a series of 10 articles on the top coasters on the planet. Unlike other coasters, the Top 10 longest and fastest coasters are a mash-up of different styles, including steel and wooden coasters. Now, let’s take a look at the tallest and fastest coasters on the planet. As we reach the end of the 2013 season, it’s time again for our theme park fair, which includes delicious burgers and fireworks.

10. Gao – Mitsui Greenland

Quite distinctive is definitely the dinosaur theming, while the 5,692-feet-long track is actually quite ordinary, Mitsui Greenland secures a spot in the top 10 with Gao, and Japanese theme parks have a tendency to construct incredibly thrilling roller coasters.

9. Desperado – Buffalo Bill’s Resort and Casino

It would be good to see more roller coasters in the future, especially if they are hotel-based. Despite its laughable appearance and near-death trap reputation, the Roller Coaster is a great idea. However, the layout is diabolical, and it is renowned for its stop positives. It held the record as the fastest coaster for a few years and opened in 1994. It resides outside the Las Vegas Casino and Resort Bill’s Buffalo in Nevada, and it is just a little faster. However, it is the same model as Blackpool’s Pleasure Beach’s Big One. This hyper steel coaster from Dynamic’s Arrow is the longest contraption ever, measuring 5843 feet.

8. California Screamin’ – Disney’s California Adventure Park Ride

This roller coaster, located in California Disney, is known as the best and most ridden ride in the park. Despite its low height restriction, it can be enjoyed by too many kids because it’s not too intense. It’s a bit bizarre that this ride, disguised to look like a wooden roller coaster with a solitary loop, seems to go against the flow of the launch and its length. The coaster is actually an LIM Intamin coaster with an initial launch speed of 55 mph.

7. The Journey – Holiday World

The Voyage, which is ranked consistently in the top 5 “woodies” worldwide, opened in 2006 and is regarded as one of the most intense roller coasters in the world. Despite its length, which spans over 6442 feet, the track has already been re-tracked numerous times, serving as a testament to the strain it endures. Starting from a thrilling underground dive, the coaster takes riders on a wild journey with three large hills before reaching its intense finale. With a top speed of 67 mph after a 160-foot hill lift, The Voyage is truly a monstrous wooden coaster.

6. Formula Rossa – Ferrari World

The launch of the report reviews the circuit being less interesting is phenomenal, however, many youth have not yet had the chance to ride it due to its location. The train travels around it quickly, demonstrating its length of 6562 feet and its height of 171 feet; however, the ride does not appear long or tall. Located in Abu Dhabi’s Ferrari World, the park has unlimited space and money, which is evident in the colossal creation they have delivered. The new park is similar to rides at Cedar Point’s Top Thrill Dragster and Six Flags Great Adventure’s Kingda Ka, including the former record holder for the longest line. This rocket coaster from Intamin is the fastest roller coaster on Earth, reaching an unbelievable speed of 149 mph. If you don’t know anything about Rossa Formula, it’s definitely not related to its length.

5. Cedar Point’s Millennium Force

There is one on the list, a little later on, however. Millennium Force’s all-round speed, to rival worldwide, very little is there in terms of height and length. This roller coaster of breed hasn’t caught on as expected. It usually ranks in the top 10 of any list enthusiast’s ranks. Although it doesn’t produce the level of airtime that many other Intamins do, it stands tall at 310 feet and reaches a gut-wrenching speed of 93 mph at the bottom of its first drop. This titan was the world’s first giga coaster, manufactured by Intamin, and it holds the title for being the fastest and tallest coaster at one point. It is a true legend among roller coasters, standing at 6595 feet.

4. Fujiyama – Fuji Q Highlands

By far, the most impressive trains in the world also boast the most exhilarating roller coasters ever. One of these roller coasters, called Desperado, is particularly intense, featuring a series of punishing side-to-side banked turns and a slightly under-engineered track. It is not surprising that this coaster, constructed by Togo, is absolutely brutal. In contrast to Millennium’s straightforward design, Fujiyama (which means ‘King of Coasters’ in literal translation) is much more twisted and complex. It opened four years earlier than Millennium and held the title of the tallest coaster on Earth. Standing at a height of 259 feet and reaching speeds of 81mph, Fujiyama can be seen as a predecessor to Millennium Force.

3. The Monster – Kings Island

The finale helix double is one of the greatest finales in the world coaster roller, covered by a long tunnel that spans 300 feet. Its layout covers a massive 35 acres and winds through almost invisible dense woods. Unlike its father, the Beast, Son of Beast has always been well received, but it shares its genes with its son, particularly the relentlessness and intensity of its 7,359 feet length. This golden oldie ride was once the fastest roller coaster in the world and was built in 1979, making it a favorite on many lists.

2. Supreme – Lightwater Valley

The Ultimate, located at Valley Lightwater, is without a doubt the top coaster here, but we’re pretty used to being disappointed with the lengths of coasters. We’re pretty used to being disappointed with the lengths of coasters. We’re pretty used to being disappointed with the lengths of coasters. The ride held the title of the world’s longest roller coaster for over a decade, measuring 7442 feet. It also holds the title for the longest duration at 7 minutes and 24 seconds, although this is partly due to the fact that it has two lift hills. The ride is a hybrid, combining a wooden structure with a steel track. It is an out and back coaster, starting with a 102 feet lift hill followed by several low bunny hills, and then a second 107 feet lift hill followed by a twisted dash through the forest. The ride is a hidden gem and a must-ride, offering decent airtime and impressive positive forces. Despite being fairly rough, it is comfortably one of the top coasters in the UK.

1. Steel Dragon 2000 – Nagashima Spa Land

Unfortunately, as long as this monster is around, we have nothing to worry about. It means that anything that is ever built again will be on such a scale, but it is also the most expensive roller coaster ever constructed, costing over $50 million due to its sheer size. Despite being a bit rough, the Dragon Steel is highly rated and filled with airtime in its final section. This section is comprised of eight consecutive bunny hops before hitting the final brakes, which leads to the exit. It starts with three huge hills, all towering over 210 feet, before diving into a banked helix section. It is so large that it requires two trains to operate simultaneously, with two broken chains on the lift. It is the fastest and tallest roller coaster in the world, reaching speeds of 95 mph and standing at a towering height of 318 feet. There is no doubt that it is the most physically impressive coaster in the world. The Dragon Steel tops the list at a staggering 8,133 feet and is known as “The Beast” from the east.
