  • Nagashima Spa Land, Nagashima, Japan
  • Type of coaster: Out and back terra-coaster
  • Height: 318 feet

Unlike the launched rides that precede it on the world's tallest roller coasters list, Steel Dragon 2000 uses a traditional lift hill (rising an incredible 318 feet) and gravity to propel it to a face-melting speed. At four minutes and with a length of 8133' feet, the coaster is the world's longest.
