Tampa, Florida, is home to SheiKra, one of the world's largest steel dive coasters. The floorless coaster dangles riders at the top of a 200-foot drop before plummeting them down at a 90-degree angle. The heart-pounding wait before dropping gives you plenty of time to wish you were back on solid ground.
Thanks to innovative stadium seating, every passenger on Diamondback at King's Island in Mason, Ohio, has a stunning view throughout the ride. With 10 drops and a thrilling splashdown finale, this is a coaster that leaves you breathless.
Manta, built in 2009, features one of the most-innovative train styles on steel coasters today. Riders are angled at a prone position, mimicking the gliding stance of a manta ray in the ocean. Each dip and loop is taken face first, making Manta in Orlando one of the scariest rides to handle in the front row.
Thanks to a simple lap-restraint system, Nitro at Six Flags Great Adventure offers one of the scariest plummeting experiences. At 230 feet, it's not a record-breaking coaster, but it's enough to send you right back to the beginning of the ride to take on the terrifying drop again.
We get butterflies in our stomach just thinking about the Cannibal's 116 degree vertical drop, so imagine what actually experiencing it can do. With a max height of 108 feet and speeds up to 70 miles per hour, this ride (located in Farmington, UT) will eat you alive from the inside out... hence the name.
This new polercoaster isn't scheduled to open at Skyplex until 2019, but when it does, it will be the scariest roller coaster ever. It takes a bit of time to climb to the top before the big drop, and the anticipation just might kill you.
