A roller coaster is a work of art. The twisted sculptures are awesome to ride and great to look at. There are hundreds of photos on CoasterForce and we’ve selected our favourite 11.
1. Baron 1898 at Efteling
This B&M Dive Coaster at Efteling in the Netherlands, has a 56 mph (90 km/h), 123 foot (37.5m) drop into a mist filled tunnel. The moody clouds capture the fear of falling into the unknown!
2. Nitro at Six Flags Great Adventure
An angle never seen before capturing two thrilling airtime hills. Image can be found on our B&M manufacturer page.
3. T Express at Everland
Everybody knows wooden roller coasters ride best at dusk. They look great at dusk, too! Image from our Intamin manufacturer page.
4. Incredible Hulk at Islands of Adventure
See what we mean? How beautiful does Hulk look at dusk? Don’t you want to ride it right now? We do! Image posted on our discussion forums.
5. Oblivion at Alton Towers
Photoshop time! If you didn’t know that Oblivion has orange restraints, you do now. Posted in the Photography topic in our forums.
6. Manta at SeaWorld Orlando
Whilst we’re talking about Photoshop witchcraft, this trick shot has multiple trains on SeaWorld’s fab Flying Coaster. It doesn’t really have so many trains running at once!
7. Dodonpa at Fuji-Q Highland
No Photoshopping needed for this image. Is there a coaster with a better backdrop? This image is on our Air Launched Coasters page.
8. El Toro and Kingda Ka at Six Flags Great Adventure
From the breathtaking to the serene. Kingda Ka and El Toro peacefully reflect in the calm water in stark contrast to their fierce ride experience!
9. Wildfire at Kolmården
Some roller coasters are cleverly built to suit the terrain, making them look extra gorgeous. This image of Wildfire’s 160 foot (49m) drop can be seen on our RMC manufacturer page.
10. Krake at Heide Park Resort
A water splash on a B&M Dive Coaster looks spectacular to onlookers and this photo captures the moment perfectly.
11. Top Thrill Dragster at Cedar Point
Anticipation is an essential roller coaster emotion. Here’s that sweet – or maybe sweaty – moment waiting to launch from zero to 120mph in less four seconds before racing 420 feet (128m) upwards towards the sky!
