9. Leviathan (306 ft)

Just a bit higher than its predecessor, we find the Leviathan on number 9 of the highest roller coasters in the world. This rollercoaster, named after a Biblical sea monster, is found in Canada’s Wonderland in Vaughan. The roller coaster is the fastest roller coaster in Canada. This track is even longer than that of the number 10 and therefore the ride takes longer! After the climb that takes almost a minute, the fall of this gigantic height begins. The Leviathan keeps his speed slightly less than his predecessor due to the many differences in height in the continuation of the track. It was built by Bolliger and Mabillard in 2012.

With 150 kilometers per hour, he is slightly faster than his 2 predecessors. Although the runway length is a lot longer than its predecessors, the ride is faster.

7. Steel Dragon 2000 (318 ft)

The Steel Dragon 2000 also wins a place on the list of fastest roller coasters in the world. And on the list of highest roller coasters in the world he is number 7. In order to visit this rollercoaster, we fly over the world’s biggest ocean until we are in Japan. This giant stands in the theme park Nagashima Spa in Japan. The roller coaster was built by Morgan and opened on January 8, 2000. According to the Chinese calender, that is the year of the dragon. That is where the name of the Steel Dragon 2000 comes from. The Steel Dragon 2000 is the longest roller coaster in the world! The ride therefore takes 4 minutes! You have been on the road for over a minute and a half before you reach the highest point. It is also one of most expensive roller coasters ever build because the construction required a lot more steel then usual for earthquake protection. The Steel Dragon 200 costs over the 50 million dollar.

From now on we encounter a completely different type of rollercoaster. The kind that is shot at tremendous speed. Then it goes up  extremely high and after the descent we return to the station. Short but intensive. The first on the list is in Europe in the park Ferrari Land in Salou (Spain). Besides being the highest rollercoaster in Europe, it is also the fastest of the continent. The course was opened in 2017 and built by Intamin AG. The Red Force is the first roller coaster in the list of highest roller coasters in the world that passes the 100 meters border!

4. Tower of Terror 2 (377 ft)

This was the world’s first roller coaster to cross the 100 miles per hour limit! The Tower of Terror 2 is similar to the Red Force in launch and experience with the difference that it has no closed circuit. You go back to the station via the same road. He is also a lot less fast than his predecessor. But he is higher so hence a higher listing in the list. After an indoor backward launch you will shoot into the air! The Tower of Terror 2 dates from 1997 and is the oldest roller coaster on this list. It was built by Intamin AG and you can find the Tower of Terror 2 in the Australian Dreamworld theme park. This makes it the fastest and highest rollercoaster in Australia.

1. Kingda Ka (458 ft)

The highest roller coaster in the world is Kingda Ka with 458 ft. The top speed is 128 mph and a ride has a duration of 28 seconds. The first and only drop is 418 feet!

Kingda Ka is the supreme longest giant in the world! 458 feet is incredibly high. The view is breathtaking. But you do not have much time to enjoy it. Almost immediately you revert down from the highest point. The Kingda Ka is a steel-launched roller coaster at the Six Flags Great Adventure & Safari theme park in Jackson, USA. This roller coaster is also short but intense. You are fired at tremendous speed and you reach the highest point in no time. Then you plunge the depth straight down while you are still going faster. Very occasionally the launch is not powerful enough to get over the highest point. No problem: the Kingda Ka is built on this. If this happens, the train is trown backwards back to the station to be fired again! The track was built by Intamin AG in 2005. Unfortunately, the Kingda Ka regularly suffers from technical problems.
