The thrill of riding a roller coaster is unique. In fact, there are many of them to choose from throughout the world. If you’re looking for the best of them though, we are proud to present the official top 10 fastest roller coasters in the entire world.

10. Intimidator 305 Kings Dominion Park, U.S.

Launched in 2010, The Intimidator 305 is both the fastest and the tallest in the eastern United States. Located in Virginia. It’s 305 feet high and reaches 90 m.p.h. The ride’s first drop is 300 feet with an 85-degree maximum angle of descent. Named after the late NASCAR star Dale “Intimidator” Earnhardt, it has a NASCAR theme, includes eight turns and four hills, and lasts for three minutes. You must be at least four and a half feet tall to ride this ride.



  1. You’re wrong about #10. The Fury 325 at Carowinds in Charlotte, North Carolina is 325 high and reaches a top speed of 95mph. Both taller and faster than the Intimidator.

  2. Hello,
    I believe this article was published a couple years ago. My guess is either The Fury was not officially opened when the list itself was created or it was disqualified for one reason or another. It seems the list changes a bit every so often, in fact. But, hey, if there is enough interest in doing an updated article I will gladly write it.
    Thanks for the comment though and your support!
