10. Desperado (5843 ft)

You will not find the Desperado as usual in a theme park. This roller coaster is part of a casino complex in Primm, Nevada. The roller coaster was built to attract visitors driving past the casinos. For 10 dollars you can already take a ride in the Desperado. The impressive length makes him the closing coaster of the list with longest roller coasters in the world. When the Desperado was opened in 1994, it was the highest roller coaster in the world. The height of the track is 209 feet, but the fall is slightly higher, namely 225 feet, because the rails go a bit underground. The Desperado was built by Arrow Dynamics.

9. California Screamin’ (6072 feet)

California Screamin’ in the American park Disney California Adventure Park is a steel roller coaster that is built to resemble a wooden roller coaster. The specs of this track are not really impressive but because of the long track the ride is special. You will be shot at the beginning of the roller coaster. During the ride there are several points where you are re-hoisted or shot again. This somewhat takes the speed off the roller coaster. California Screamin’ was built in 2001 by Intamin and is currently record holder: longest roller coaster in the world with an inversion.

8. The Voyage (6442 ft)

The Voyage is the first wooden roller coaster in the list of longest roller coasters in the world. The Voyage is located in the American attraction and water park Holiday World & Splashin ‘Safari in Santa Claus. Voyage means traveling in French and a journey through the impressive length in this roller coaster is certainly a trip to remember. The Voyage is the number 2 worldwide when it comes to longest air-time in a roller coaster. Air-time means that the rider experience weightlessness due to negative g-forces. In The Voyage you experience this for more than 24 seconds in a row. Only the Steel Vengeance in Cedar Point has a longer air-time. The roller coaster was built in 2006 by the Gravity Group. The Voyage has had many adjustments over the years.

7. Millennium Force (6595 ft)

The Millennium Force we encounter a lot in top 10 roller coaster lists. Usually as a last stop. But this time on place 7 when it comes to the longest roller coasters in the world. The Millennium Force is a steel roller coaster at the Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky, U.S.A. Cedar Point is known for its many roller coasters! You will be lifted to the highest point via a cable and then starts the endless journey. The Millennium Force is very good at maintaining its speed because the intensity of the roller coaster is mainly in curves. And so the speed remains. The course was built in the year 2000 by Intamin.

Fury 325 is a steel roller coaster where you are first taken to the highest point via a cable construction. Then you start on the track and you rush down.

5. Fujiyama (6709 ft)

The Fujiyama is found in the Fuji-Q Highland park in Japan. Like the park, the rollercoaster is named after the highest mountain in Japan, which is less than 20 kilometers from the park. During the ride you have a fantastic view of this mountain. The mountain is called Fuji and is a dormant volcano. It is not to be hoped that the volcano will ever become active again, because who knows what will be left of this roller coaster. Fortunately, the last eruption was long ago. This was in 1707. The Fujiyama is a steel roller coaster that at the time of opening in 1996 took both the record of fastest and highest roller coaster. He lost the record fastest rollercoaster in the world in 1997 to the Tower of Terror. The title of highest roller coaster also got lost when the Millennium Force was built in the year 2000. The Fujiyama was built by TOGO. If you have not fallen asleep during the almost one-and-a-half minute cable car ride, the fantastic ride finally begins! After the first highest climb, a few nice heights follow again.

4. Formula Rossa (6790 ft)

Welcome to the fastest roller coaster in the world. We come across the Formula Rossa almost in all top 10 roller coaster lists. You will not  easily find a much more extreme ride at this moment. In the Ferrari World Park in Abu Dhabi, the Formula Rossa races by wit 150 miles per hour. This is so hard that it is necessary to put on safety glasses. A roller coaster that goes so fast naturally also needs a long track. And this gives him a 4th place on the list of longest roller coasters in the world. During the mega launch you have no idea what happens to you. What a roller coaster! The Formula Rossa was opened in 2010 and built by Intamin AG.

3. The Beast (7359 ft)

The Beast is the longest wooden roller coaster in the world. This monstrously large colossus can be found in the American amusement park Kinds Island in Mason. The track is very old. He opened in 1979 and was built by attraction builder Charles Dinn. Special to The Beast is that the track largely follows the natural height differences. The highest drop is therefore also 30 feet higher than the highest point of the track. This is one of the most spectacular wooden roller coasters that you will find worldwide. The course has 2 cables that take the train to high points. The first is of course at the beginning. But the highest is about half of the track. Then you will be released and you will experience the most intense part of The Beast.

2. Ultimate (7442 feet)

The second longest roller coaster in the world is the Ultimate and we find it in Europe. This steel roller coaster is located in the Lightwater Valley theme park near Ribon in the United Kingdom. The roller coaster is relatively old. He is build in 1991. In this time building such a massive roller coaster was such a big job that engineers from the British Rail were brought in. The construction of the roller coaster took 18 months! The most special thing about the track is the length. Furthermore, the specs are not very special. The fact that the roller coaster hit a deer in 2014 which ran on the track so that the passengers became showered in blood is pretty disgusting. Fortunately, apart from the deer that did not survive the collision, nobody was injured. The track largely moves with the height differences in the landscape. Despite being the number 2 of the longest roller coasters in the world, the Ultimate is the easiest ride on this list. The track has 2 lifts.

1. Steel Dragon 2000 (8133 ft)

The longest roller coaster in the world is the Steel Dragon 2000 in the park Nagashima Spa Land in Japan. It is 8133 ft long and a ride has a duration of no less than 4 minutes! The maximum speed is 95 mph.

The great thing about the Steel Dragon 2000 is that it only lifts up once, in contrast to the number 2 and 3 on the list of longest roller coasters in the world. The climb to the highest point takes more than a minute and a half! The track was built in the year 2000 by D. H. Morgan Manufacturing. The rollercoaster is very intens and has also a shared 8th place in the list of fastest roller coasters in the world. After the first climb you immediately go down and the maximum speed is reached. Then there are 2 large hills where the roller coaster goes over at full speed. Hold on tightly, because after this follows a veriety of sharp bends that completely shake you up.
