Top 50 Most Terrifying Roller Coasters - 47. Riddler's Revenge

Known for: World's largest standup coaster
Park: Six Flags Magic Mountain
Location: United States
Type: Steel
Opened: 1998
Designer/Manufacturer: Bolliger & Mabillard
Height (ft.): 156
Drop (ft.): 146
Speed (mph): 65
Inversions: 6

When Riddler’s Revenge opened in 1998 it became the world recorder holder in height, drop, speed, length and number of inversions on a standup roller coaster. Instead of sitting in a seated position riders standup while hurling through massive inversions including two back to back dive loops. Riders straddle a small bicycle style seat meaning this coaster may be slightly more terrifying for males rather than females, especially if they have dreams of having children in the future. Even though B&M only built seven standup coasters Riddler’s Revenge remains the cream of the crop.
