These Are America's Most Terrifying Rollercoasters

If you're looking for thrills and chills on your next vacation this Explore video has compiled the scariest rollercoasters across the U.S., whether you're looking for the fastest or tallest. They also have you covered if you're into something a bit more exotic, like winged coasters or ones that have you facing the ground as you're hurtled through space. If vicarious thrills are more your speed, the video won't let you down as you watch these riders go up, down, upside down, and loop the loop.

If actor Kevin Hart's high-pitched screams while riding the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit at Universal Studios Florida are any indication, you'll be in for a wild time even if it isn't the fastest or highest rollercoaster on the list. That award goes to Kingda Ka at Six Flags Great Adventure in Jackson, New Jersey, with its jaw-dropping 456-foot incline and eye-watering 128-mph speed. This video will either have you mapping out a coast-to-coast rollercoaster road trip or thanking your lucky stars you're only watching it from the safety of home.
