67 mph

Bolliger & Mabillard

Inverted coaster

Minimum height:
54 inches

This B&M inverted roller coaster expertly mimics the classic ski-lifts of the Alps. But when the idyllic chalet skii-lodge is invaded by the eponymous Ghost of the Alps, the nearly 200-foot coaster takes off, flipping riders six times. It's consistantly rated one of the world's best roller coasters for good reason.
