Honorable Mention: Xcelerator- 82 mph
- Knott's Berry Farm, Buena Park, California
- Hydraulic launch rocket coaster
Considerably smaller and slower than either Kingda Ka or Top Thrill Dragster (but still plenty tall at 205 feet), the similar Xcelerator nonetheless reaches a bone-rattling speed in a matter of seconds. It certainly doesn't feel a heckuva lot slower than its enormous cousins when you are barreling down its straight launch track staring at the top hat tower ahead. If speed is relative, consider Xcelerator relatively fast.
