Amusement parks are, for the most part, a fun time to be had by everyone. There’s food, rides for the kids, shows, and rollercoasters for those pining thrill seekers. For the latter, amusement parks have continued to spike their efforts by dreaming up seemingly-dangerous contraptions that the avid roller-coaster fan would travel far and wide to try out. Rollercoasters are a joy ride that has yet to be matched by any other type of amusement park attraction.

Popular amusement parks have tried putting their A-game into revolutionary rollercoaster tracks and ideas. From Takabisha to Sky Scream, there’s no telling what seemingly-dangerous conception engineers will dream up next. Those that are faint of heart better step back; these rides are for serious thrill seekers only. Adrenaline junkies of the world, rejoice, for before you lie the 10 most epic roller coasters from around the world.

10 10. Intimidator 305

Location: Doswell, Virginia, United States

Located at Kings Dominion, the Intimidator 305 heeds its name. Its glaring red facade isn’t what stops thrill seekers in their tracks, however. The 305 ft (93 m) peak is easily the most prominent aspect of this ride that you can experience—if you dare.

It’s a Giga Coaster, which means it strategically incorporates tight turns and steep slopes for that maximum adrenaline rush. The train is themed to fit Dale Earnhardt's black number 3 car. At the crescendo, the cart plummets at an 85-degree drop and cruises into a speed of up to 91 miles per hour.

9 9. Takabisha

Location: Fujiyoshida, Yamanashi, Japan

The steepest roller coaster in the world sits in the Japanese amusement park known as Fuji-Q Highland. It opened on July 16, 2011, and quickly received recognition from the Guinness Book of World Records for being the steepest steel roller-coaster in the world.

This Euro-Fighter coaster starts off with a heavy drop (3,300 feet to be exact) into a pitch black canal. It travels along the tracks at 62 mph, which is relatively faster than your standard roller coaster. Riders get the thrill of going through a corkscrew turn, a banana roll, and a number of drops, all within a matter of minutes.

8 8. Beast Kings Island

Location: Mason, Ohio

Back in 1979 when the coaster first opened, Beast Kings Island was leveled as the longest, fastest, and tallest wooden roller coaster in the world. The coaster spans across 35 acres, giving travelers the unique ride time of over four minutes. The ride uses unprecedented veering maneuvers to shock riders as they barrel into the trenches after lofty drops that reach a height of 135-foot drop (41 m).

The ride in Kings Island is still rated one of the top coasters by thrill seekers, with 53 million daring souls taking their turn on the wooden beast.

7 7. The Gravity Max

Location: Houli Hsiang, Taichung, Taiwan.

At Lihpao Land in Taiwan, there is a steel roller coaster that has received fame from its unparalleled design. The Gravity Max, also known as the “The Cliffhanger,” does just that.

Riders slowly climb the track’s peak of 114 feet before the coaster cart turns completely horizontal to have riders facing the treacherous drop below. Within seconds, the coaster plummets riders into a pitch black tunnel before emerging from the dark. Riders spin out on a 180-degree turn and an 88-foot tall loop, finishing off with more jarring twists and turns.

6 6. Full Throttle

Location: Valencia, California

Full Throttle is a well-known coaster within the theme part titan, Six Flags Plaza. At 160 feet (49 m), its claim to fame is its feature for the world's second tallest vertical loop.

The ride (which just opened in 2013) launches riders from 0 to 70 miles per hour (110 km/h), though the impact is comfortably subtle. After a series of dives and loops, the coaster comes to an abrupt halt before shockingly thrusting riders backward and back up the dive loop.

5 5. Formula Rossa

Location: Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.

Formula Rossa is located at Ferrari World and is fitted with the title for the world’s fastest roller coaster. In 2010, the steel coaster opened to the public, offering adrenaline enthusiasts a one-size-fits-all accelerated expedition.

At its most prominent points, Formula Rossa reaches G forces of 1.7 g and up to 4.8 g during the rest of the ride. Because of its ferocious speed and height, riders have to wear skydiving goggles to protect them against insects and winds.

4 4. Top Thrill Dragster

Location: Sandusky, Ohio

Cedar Point, yet another famous amusement park known for its bevy of coasters, plays host to the Top Thrill Dragster. This one is intimidating to look at, with its 400 f00t (120 m) summit being the main attraction to the ride.

When riders wait for liftoff, they are warned to keep their head back and to “hold on.” The cart is then launched at a maximum capacity of 120 mph (190 km/h) in 3.8 seconds. It’s then followed by various 90-degree loops and twist with a 420-foot climb and drop being the catalyst of the ride. This one earns its name by only taking on those who claim to be Top Thrill Seekers.

3 3. Steel Dragon 2000

Location: Mie Prefecture, Japan

The Steel Dragon 2000 is a monstrous steel contraption that sits inside Nagashima Spa Land amusement park in Japan. It currently holds the title for the longest roller coaster in the world, with 8,133 ft (2,479 m) of carved steeled taking up much of the park’s real estate.

Its most daring drop happens at a peak of 307 feet and reaches a triumphant speed of 95 mph. This coaster was built to withstand earthquakes, making the entire monument cost upwards of $50 million dollars.

2 2. Sky Scream

Location: Hassloch, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany

If you’re wondering how this coaster gets its name, that can be answered by explaining the climax of the ride. And no, it’s not the almost 150-foot drop that has extracted bloodcurdling screams from its riders.

No, Sky Scream's most intimidating feature happens a quarter of the way into the ride when the coaster cart is suddenly yanked backward, upwards, and upside down. Those willing to take on this coaster will only be able to see what’s right in front of them, as half of the time is spent traveling backward with no indication when your next loops or drops may be. Located at Holiday Park in German, the Sky Scream is famous for its unpredictability.

1 1. X2

Location: Valencia, California

Another from Six Flags Magic Mountain, X2 is the world's first 4th Dimension roller coaster. A 4th Dimension coaster is a one-of-a-kind ride where riders spin individually on their own axis so that they never experience the same ride twice.

The seats can rotate forward or backward at a complete 360-degree spin. Six Flags stepped up the game a notch when it added in special effects (like flamethrowers) through that coaster's chassis.
