List of top 10 new roller coasters released
CNN — If you're a coaster buff, a thrill seeker or your summer vacation plans include an amusement park, check out these new gravity-defying roller coasters. The group American Coaster Enthusiasts is out with a list of the 10 top new roller coasters.
The Goliath tops the list. The wooden coaster debuts May 24th at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois. It breaks three world records for wooden coasters: the fastest, longest drop and the steepest drop.
The death-defying roller coaster in Las Vegas is appropriately called El Loco. The hair-raising ride opened in February at circus circus' adventuredome. Coaster enthusiasts say the ride lives up to its name.
If the name on this next one isn't enough of a warning, it should be. The Banshee at King's Island in Ohio opened last week. It's billed as the longest inverted coaster in the world. It also has a curved drop, a dive loop and a zero gravity roll to name a few of the Banshee's features.
Other coasters on the list include the Thunderbolt at Luna Park in Brooklyn's Coney Island and the Firechaser Express at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
