World's Craziest Roller Coasters

Top Thrill Dragster is a steel, hydraulically-launched roller coaster located at Cedar Point Amusement Park in Sandusky, Ohio. It was the first "Strata Coaster," loosely defined as a complete circuit coaster that is 400 to 499 feet tall.

When Top Thrill Dragster opened, it set several new records:

    * First continuous-circuit roller coaster to top 400 feet
    * First roller coaster to reach 120 mph
    * Highest drop of any coaster
    * Fastest roller coaster in the world
    * Tallest roller Coaster in the world

Eejanaika, Japan - most inversions, perhaps loudest screams. This roller coaster not only whirls through the loops, but each cart additionally rotates 360 degrees, guaranteed to scramble even veteran coaster riders. Eejanaika is the fastest and longest, with the most inversions, 14 in total.
