Our Top 10 Roller Coasters
For our first annual Top Roller Coasters List, we combined the individual lists of the writers at CoasterCritic (Joel, Bobbie, John, & Jon) with the lists of well-traveled enthusiasts and friends of the site Judy P. and Arthur Levine of Trip Savvy.
Of the hundreds of roller coasters we’ve collectively ridden, these are what we consider the 10 best roller coasters in the United States.
