Brace yourself for the speeding Silver Bullet. In just over two minutes, this coaster flips, twists, turns and drops so fast you won’t be able to blink. As an inverted coaster, your feet dangle from this ride creating a weightless effect.  So, when you flip upside down a total of six times you really feel the rush!

3) Supreme Scream

I love roller coasters, but there’s something about a drop tower ride that really gets my adrenaline going. At the Supreme Scream, you’re slowly pulled to a record-breaking 252-feet in the sky. Take a quick look at the epic views, because you’re about to experience a power-blasted plummet! You’ll feel weightless for three seconds (totally awesome) before falling at speeds topping 50mph.

5) GhostRider

A recent renovation renewed the spirit of Knott’s Berry Farm’s GhostRider. Featuring over 4,500-feet of track, this is the longest, tallest and fastest wooden roller coaster on the west coast. However, now it’s also one of the smoothest. Reaching a maximum height of 118-feet and speeds up to 56 mph, brave riders are taken through a mysterious mine before being sent along a perilously twisting track of timber.
