Thrill seekers will always tell you the best part of any trip to an amusement park is exploring all of the awesome roller coasters.
There are a few world-famous roller coasters every thrill seeker should make an effort to ride at least once.
Although it isn’t going to win any records for speed, length or inversions, you shouldn’t miss Space Mountain in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. If we are just talking roller coasters big enough to break records, there are bunches we can consider.
The tallest roller coaster in the world is also one of the most famous and notorious,. Kingda Ka, at Six Flags Great Adventure, shoots riders straight up in the air 465 feet before bringing them straight back down. The coaster opened in May 2005 and is worth riding for all thrill seekers. Kingda Ka is in Jackson, New Jersey.
The tallest wooden roller coaster in the world can be found in South Korea’s Everland and Sweden’s Kolmården Wildlife Park. The T Express and Wildfire are both 183.3 feet tall.
The fastest roller coaster in the world, surprisingly, is not Kingda Ka. Formula Rossa, at Ferrari World Abu Dhabi in the UAE, reaches 149 mph.
It is impossible for every park to have record-breakers, but every big park, including the mild Disney theme parks, seem to have a roller coaster standing out above the others.

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
Alexandria, Virginia, is located just outside of Washington D.C. It has a reputation for being a pricey area. Even though some restaurants may give your wallet a workout, there are still plenty of spots pleasing to your palate and wallet.
