If you're a coaster buff, thrill seeker, or your Summer vacation plans include an amusement park, check out these new gravity-defying roller coasters. The group American Coaster Enthusiasts is out with a list of the 10 top new roller coasters.


The wooden coaster debuts May 24th at Six Flags Great America in Gurnee, Illinois. It breaks three world records for wooden coasters including being the fastest, having the longest drop and the steepest drop. 

El Loco

This death defying coaster is in Las Vegas. The hair-raising ride opened in February at Circus Circus's Adventuredome. Coaster enthusiasts say the ride lives up to its name. 

The Banshee

The name on this one should be enough of a warning. It's billed as the longest inverted coaster in the world. It also has a curved drop, dive loop and zero gravity roll just to name a few of the Banshee's features.

Other coasters on the list include the Thunderbold at Luna Park in Brooklyn's Coney Island and the Firechaser Express at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, TN.
