Texas' first inverted roller coaster, Great White, sends thrill-seekers head over heels while traveling on more than 2,500 feet of breathtaking loops, spirals and corkscrews. This two-minute roller coaster ride at SeaWorld San Antonio features a drop of 81-feet and five inversions, including a gravity-defying zero-G roll!

An interesting sidenote– 11 years after Great White opened, nearby Six Flags Fiesta Texas oddly enough erected an identical roller coaster with a mirrored layout. If you're riding Great White and it seems remarkably familiar, that's probably because you've also ridden – Goliath.
