Ranking of the highest roller coasters in the United Kingdom (UK) 2019

Roller coasters ranked by height in the United Kingdom (UK) as of 2019 (in meters)

by Jennifer Luty, last edited Jun 25, 2019
Ranking of the highest roller coasters in the United Kingdom (UK) 2019 The Big One at Blackpool Pleasure Beach is the United Kingdom’s highest rollercoaster. At 64.9 meters (around 213 feet) it also ranks among Europe’s highest rollercoasters, placing sixth as of 2019. Additionally, it is one of the fastest roller coasters in the UK, falling only behind Stealth at Thorpe Park. The Big One reaches a top speed of 119.1 kilometers per hour (around 74 miles per hour).
The Big One remains at the top in the UK

The Big One (previously known as Pepsi Max Big One) has become an iconic roller coaster in Britain, much like Blackpool Pleasure Beach itself. On the ride’s opening in 1994, The Big One was in fact the tallest roller coaster in the world, however it lost its title two years later to Fujiyama at Fuji-Q Highland in Japan. Currently, Kingda Ka at Six Flags Great Adventure park in the United States ranks as the highest roller coaster worldwide.

British amusement parks

Most of the UK’s leading roller coasters belong to the UK’s biggest amusement parks, including Alton Towers and Thorpe Park. One exception is Legoland Windsor, which with its Lego-themed family friendly attractions features only a few smaller roller coasters but is still estimated to be the highest valued theme park in the UK.
