Roller coasters are often known for their speed. But in order to reach mind-numbing speeds, they have to first scale vertigo-inducing heights (at least that’s true for traditional non-launched coasters). The world’s ten biggest roller coasters listed here make the grade for having the ten tallest drops.
Since some of the coasters have underground tunnels or are built into ravines, they aren’t necessarily ranked as measured from their highest points to ground level. Heights are included for each coaster. No standing beyond this point as we click-clack-click up and race down the world’s tallest coasters.
