Six Flags Great Adventure – USA

Six Flags Great Adventure is home to the Kinga Ka, the world’s tallest and second fastest roller coaster. It stands at 418 feet and goes from 0 to 128 miles per hour in less than four seconds. If wooden coasters are more your style, take a ride on El Toro – the #1 wooden coaster in the world.

Ferrari World – UAE

Formula Rossa is the fastest roller coaster in the world, going from 0 to 150 miles per hour in five seconds. It will take your breath away for 92 seconds.

PortAventura Park – Spain

PortAventura Park is Spain’s largest amusement park and boasts Europe’s tallest and fastest roller coaster, Red Force, clocking in at a top speed of 112 miles per hour. If you want to tackle a second challenge, the Furius Baco is 84 miles per hour but remains at that speed for the entire ride as there are no elements that decrease its momentum.

Chimelong Ocean Kingdom – China

This recently opened amusement park is the No. 1 most visited theme park in the world (unaffiliated from Disney/Universal parks). It contains the world’s largest oceanarium, thus having rides themed around water. Try the Parrot Coaster (formerly Flying Over the Rainforest), the world’s longest and fastest Wing Coaster in the world.
