Steel Roller Coaster Records

Millennium Force Cedar Point List of record breaking steel roller coasters. To qualify for the steel category the roller coaster must be designed with a steel track and the layout needs to form a complete circuit.

The record categories for steel roller coasters are:
Drop | Height | Length | Speed

Largest Drop

The drop for a roller coaster is determined by measuring the vertical difference or elevation change from the top of the largest drop to the bottom. Some roller coasters use ravines or tunnels to increase the drop.
