FC: Amazing Thrills! By Austin

2: There are the classic wooden coasters with infamous drops, and head rattling turns. A modern twist included an unusual loop. The Son of Beast roller coaster was the only one to incorporate a loop, until the loop was removed in 2006.

5: Then there are steel sit down coasters. One famous element on a steel coaster is a loop. It can stand alone as in these coasters, or it can be partnered with a variety of other elements.

6: A modern twist on the loop is literally a twist. This extra element is a corkscrew which sends riders in twists that go upside down, but are lengthier.

9: Inverted roller coasters are a ton of fun. With your feet dangling there are many possibilities. Some inverted coasters only have turns, while others have a variety of complex loops and inversions. All are made of steel.

10: Then there are steel coasters that do not incorporate loops. They have huge drops, and really wide turns.

13: Next we have what I call the blast off coaster. These can be as simple as a huge hill, and a fast beginning. Others can have more loops, and corkscrews. These launches are very fast being as fast as 149 miles per hour.

14: There are mild coasters, that incorporate mild turns, and slow speeds. There are many coasters in this category including but to limited to kiddie coasters, mine train coasters, and Wild Mouse Roller Coasters.

17: These coasters are some of the weirder ones. This breed includes new elements like cars jutting out past the track, wicked twists and more.

18: These are the record breaking coasters for speed, height, length, drops, and inversions. The number one roller coasters in the world in the order of the respective records above are Formula Rossa, Kingda Ka, Steel Dragon 2000, Kingda Ka, and 10 Inversion Roller Coaster. Only 3 of the four coasters are pictured. 10 Inversion Roller Coaster is missing.
