Have You Ridden One of the Tallest Roller Coasters in the World?

I’m lucky enough to live in the United States where many of the World’s best and largest roller coasters are located. I’ve ridden four of the six American roller coasters that made this list. They are Fury 325, Kingda Ka, Millennium Force, and Intimidator 305.

I was minutes from riding Top Thrill Dragster when Cedar Point decided to close it for rain. And, I also ran into a similar situation when Superman The Escape broke down while I was in the queue.

How many of these sky-scraping rides have you ridden? Leave a comment below.
