Are You Brave Enough To Handle These Roller Coasters? [VIDEOS]

I LOVE roller coasters, and I consider myself to be a pretty brave person. My love for roller coasters started after my parents forced me to ride the Viper at Darien Lake when I was younger.

I remember the day. I was shaking in my sneakers and wondering if I was going to make it off the ride alive. When I stepped off the ride, I was laughing.

How brave are you? Could you handle some of the world’s fastest and tallest roller coasters? I feel confident that I’d be able to handle these record setting coasters…

“Formula Rossa” is located at Ferrari World in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. This roller coaster is currently the fastest coaster in the world topping off speeds of 150 mph! You’ve gotta see this…

“Kingda Ka” is located at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, N.J. The coaster is the tallest in the world at 456 feet tall, and it accelerates up to 128 mph in only 3.5 seconds. Intense!

“Top Thrill Dragster” is located at Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio. This coaster was the tallest in the world, at 420 feet tall, until the “Kingda Ka” was built in 2005. The “Top Thrill Dragster” has speeds up to 120 mph in only 4 seconds. Again, I ask: How brave are you?

“Superman: Escape from Krypton” is located at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia, Calif. Another coaster definitely not for everyone — 415 feet tall and and speeds up to 100 mph in only 7 seconds. I want to try them all!

The “Top Thrill Dragster” and the “Kingda Ka” are both very similar, except that the “Kingda Ka” is slightly taller and faster. All four of these roller coasters were manufactured by the same company, Intamin. I think a road trip is in order for this summer!
