The tallest roller coaster is a magnificent 650 foot tall and it is found in Sin City, Las Vegas.
The current tallest roller coaster is 456 foot tall Kingda Ka at New Jersey’s Six Flags Great Adventure.
The roller coaster will be the tallest if an application submitted to the Federal Aviation Administration for the so-called “Polercoaster” is accepted. The application is classified as a “work in progress.” It was submitted by Florida-based U.S. Thrill Rides.
It is designed to be two attractions in one: a roller coaster and an observation tower. The coaster, according to Michael Kitchen, president of U.S. Thrill Rides, would have a very small footprint. Kitchen said, “loads from the bottom, takes patrons to breathtaking heights up the center of the tower and then descends down around the structure with multiple inversions, loops and direction changes.”
