Number 3 (tie): Tower of Terror- 328 Foot Drop
The 10 Tallest Roller Coasters in the World
Theme Park Review. Used with permission.
  • Dreamworld, Queensland, Australia
  • Type of coaster: Magnetic induction shuttle coaster
  • Height: 377 feet

Using linear synchronous motors, Tower of Terror (which bears no resemblance to the Disney drop tower rides) shoots straight and up an L-shaped track, slows as it reaches the top (and delivers a huge pop of free-floating airtime), and then retraces its route backwards to the loading station.
