You know how at the end of most roller coasters you feel like you wish the ride could be longer. You just had all this fun but the ride was so short. Well this next ride should help you with that. It’s the world’s longest ride: Steel Dragon 2000. This thing look like fun.

World’s Fastest Roller Coaster: Formula Rossa

Now this video doesn’t really do this ride justice, but even though I haven’t been on this ride personally, my good friend, (who by the way can help you with water damage if you ever need it click here, big ups to him) he took a trip to Abu Dhabi and he can definitely vouch for this ride and how fast it really truly is.

World’s Tallest Roller Coaster: Kingda Ka

 

Kingda Ka is currently the world’s tallest roller coaster. It’s also the world’s second fastest roller coaster as well. Kingda Ka is one of the rides at Six Flags Great Adventure, located in Jackson, New Jersey. The ride was opened in 2005. At that time it was both the world’s tallest roller AND the world’s fastest roller coaster as well. World’s fastest roller record now goes to a roller coaster called Formula Rossa which is located at the Ferrari World theme park in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. So in essence, it still holds the title for tallest and fastest in North America, just not the world anymore. For now, we’re just looking at the tallest in the world. The fastest in the world will come in a future post. Stay tuned!

X2 Roller Coaster

 

This is one of my favorite roller coasters. X2, is formally known as X is located at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, CA. It’s the first 4th dimension roller coaster in the world. 4th dimension because as the train rides along the track, the seats themselves rotate both forward and backward 360 degrees around to give you a whole new kind of different ride experience. Thrilling to say the least.
