Theme Parks with the Most Roller Coasters – 2018 Update

If you’re wondering which theme parks have the most roller coasters, I’ve updated a list that includes all of the amusement parks in the World. I used the Roller Coaster Database counts and if you click on the park name it will take you to a full list of the rides.

The Loopiest Theme Parks

I also included a column with an inversion count since it’s readily available via RCDB’s Inversion Breakdown. Six Flags Magic Mountain further cements itself as the Thrill Capital (as well as the Coaster Capital) with such an insane loop count. As I’ve said in the past, I’m proud to see my home park, Carowinds, in the mix.

What’s Your Take?

Are you surprised by the list of parks with the most roller coasters? Have you been to any or most of these parks? If I’m missing any, please chime in. Leave a comment below.

    So far, I’ve only missed out on California, Illinois and Texas. Six Flags Great America may be doable this summer, but I think I’m saving Texas and California for my retirement years (hopefully only 2 more school years after this one!!) While you were studying this topic, Joel, I was checking the list of last year’s Coasting for Kids lineup and starting to make guesses about what this year would look like. I have participated in this fundraising event for the past 2 years at Dorney Park. In 2012, we spent 6 hours on Steel Force. Last year, they mixed it up a bit and we had time on Steel Force, Talon, and Hydra (yes, the inversions weeded out the crowd a bit more last year!) along with early rides on Possessed and Stinger. After looking at the Cedar Fair parks on your list, I’m glad I did my marathon at Dorney Park last year, even if Dorney is NOT on this list. The coasters definitely had re-rideability, making for an enjoyable day.

    *** NOTE: While looking through my files for the link to participating parks and the coasters that were used (link here), I found that they are beginning to post information for the 2014 Coasting for Kids Event. If you have never tried “marathoning” on coasters, this is a fun and beneficial way to do so. I’m planning to try it again this year. If you want to follow my progress, watch for my posts on facebook at Judy Rhein Polczynski. You can contact me there if you have any questions.

      Judy, I know that you’ve surpassed me in coaster count, but I didn’t know that you hadn’t been to those states yet. Great America’s among my favorite Six Flags parks. Let me know if you plan on going. They’ve got a nice collection and Goliath looks like it could be coaster of the year material.

      Also, thanks for sharing your link to Coasting For Kids. I made it click-able for you. Good luck with your marathoning this year!

    No. It works that way at Universal, but not at Disney. Every guest gets the same treatment for Fastpass but sntiyag on site will get you extra-magic hours at certain parks. Check the schedule on the Disney website.

    Canada’s wonderland is down to 15 coasters now. Freestyle is no longer there.
