Most breath-taking roller coaster rides around the world

Roller coasters are loved by some and hated by others but almost everyone screams on it. The roller coaster is one ride in the amusement park that some people visit to ride and others love to avoid. These scare machines are breath taking instruments. These scream machines can strike fear even in the heart of Hercules, by reaching speeds of over 90 – 100 plus under seconds. Here is a list of the most breath taking roller coaster rides in the world:
Located at Six Flags GreatAdventure in New Jersey, USA, it's the tallest and fastest roller coaster in the world. To give you an idea of its ferocity, it is called the Bengal Tiger. This roller coaster reaches a height of 139m at its highest point. To put things in perspective, that's even taller than the London Eye. It also has the fastest drop in the world.

Dodonpa, Japan

Located at Fuji-Q Highland, Yamanashi, Japan, this roller coaster goes straight up, down a curve, and then goes straight down. Dodonpa messes with your mind, as passengers are forced to wait anxiously in a darkened tunnel before the countdown to an insanely fast acceleration out of the tunnel, screaming down the track and then getting fired up and over two humps which have 90 degree drops on each side.

Thunder Dolphin: Tokyo's most terrifying ride

Known for its unique design around buildings in central Tokyo's Dome City amusement park, the Thunder Dolphin starts off with a dizzying 218 foot lunge at a steep 80 degree angle. The 3,500-foot long roller coaster races around the track at speed that exceeds 80 mph making it a mental joyride. Thunder Dolphin's maximum speed is 80 miles per hour.

Tower of Terror: the fastest and tallest flat ride in the world

Located at Dreamworld in the Gold Coast, Australia, it is currently the fourth fastest roller coaster in the world, but it has been reported to be the fastest and tallest roller coaster on a tower. The track pitches up 90 degrees vertically. Riders are weightless during the entire vertical section of the ride. There has been some controversy over whether Tower of Terror is a roller coaster, since the car goes up a tower only to fall back down again. Because of this, the ride is found on many lists of the tallest and fastest roller coasters.

Millennium Force

This roller coaster is located at the Cedar Point AmusementPark in Sandusky, Ohio, USA. The Millennium Force was the first roller coaster to exceed 300 feet in height back in the year 2000, and was briefly the tallest closed circuit roller coaster in the world. At the tallest section you will endure a stomach-churning 300ft drop. It is still the longest steel roller coaster in the United States.
