It says something about the human condition that we are prepared to pay good money to frighten ourselves half to death by being thrown around the breakneck curves and twists of a towering steel structure at high velocity while strapped into car shaped like an oversized bullet.

Rollercoaster fanatics live for the adrenalin rush that each trip provides, and with coaster designers becoming ever more ingenious in their perverse desire to scare the wits out of hard-core coaster riders, the stakes are raised just that little bit higher each time a new rollercoaster is unveiled.

Here then, in no particular order, are the world’s top ten scariest rollercoasters.

  1. Even looking at them makes me a bit nervous. I’m from Sri Lanka and we don’t have roller coasters here, but I did try one when in Malaysia and it was scary. But that was only like 60 feet, can’t imaging going over 400 feet.

  2. Awesome post, I know where my next travels will be. I don’t think anything can beat the thrill of Kingda Ka though, the uneasiness in my gut lasted 20 minutes lol.

  11. Some of those rides are scary, but the tower of terror isn’t one of them. Sure it’s tall and very fast, but it doesn’t supply the fear factor that many other coasters do. And since SEFK is the same thing, I’d say that’s not scary either.

  12. anyone else realize how the last one (#10) is obviously the same one as X2 at six flags in LA

    It’s the scariest ride ever, and was listed as #1 on another list somewhere else…
