Have You Ridden One of the Fastest Roller Coasters in the World?
I’ve ridden three of the roller coasters that made this list. They are Kingda Ka, Millennium Force, and Intimidator 305. Again, I’d have two more (Top Thrill Dragster and Superman) if they didn’t close just as I was about to ride them.
Watch Theme Park Review take on this 149 mph monster in the video below. Notice how their cheeks are flapping in the wind and how the train sounds like a jet is flying by during the off-ride shots.
