Brace Yourself: Sure, Britain’s mostly dreary climate can seem like a strange choice for a theme park, but this roller coaster, built in 2002, still holds the record for number of inversions: 10. It flips riders over and over and over again in maneuvers called the double corkscrew, the cobra roll, and the quadruple heart-line roll. If you’re more likely to be in China than the U.K., an exact replica of this ride, called the Tenth Ring Roller Coaster, was built in 2006 at Chimelong Paradise in Guangzhou.



If You Chicken Out: No Way Out is the world’s only backward roller coaster, and what’s more, it runs its course in the dark. Although it’s not a concept anyone wanted to copy, it is a handy indoor option if it’s raining.
