Roller Coasters are often the main attraction at Theme Parks and Amusement parks. They routinely draw in crowds of thrill-seekers looking for a scary adrenaline-filled experience that they won't soon forget. But what elevates a Coaster from an entertaining joy ride to a jaw-dropping mind-blowing must-try experience? Is it the heart-pounding acceleration of the launch? Is it the stomach-sinking first drop or the crazy inversions? Or is it a combination of these factors blended together devilishly with break-neck speed and unnerving airtime? In this list we feature some of the biggest, baddest, fastest and scariest roller coasters across the world. Some of them are record breakers, others are deceptively frightening owing to their wooden construction - but all of them have what it takes to be on every coaster fanatic's scary hall of fame. Go through the list to experience the incredible POV videos included and let us know by ranking the list which ones you think deserve to be on top (pun intended)!

Shivering Timbers is a wooden roller coaster at Michigan's Adventure in Muskegon County, Michigan. The ride's out and back layout is 5,383 feet (1,641 m) long, making it the fourth-longest wooden roller coaster in the world. The ride starts with a left turn out of the station and on to the 122 ft (37.2 m) lift hill. At the base of the lift hill, the train reaches its maximum speed of 57 mph (91.7 km/h). Following the lift hill are two camelback hills, the first being 100 ft (30.5 m) tall, and the second being 95 ft (29 m) tall. In these hills, riders experience "ejector air-time". The train then jumps a bunny hop and another camelback hill and a double up hill, before turning around for the second half of its course. After the turnaround, the train hits another bunny hop and another double up hill. After the double up hill there is a series of six bunny hop hills. After the last hill there is an on-ride photo camera and the ride's finale, a 630 degree helix, in which riders experience lateral g-force. After the helix, the train slides on to the final brake-run and executes a U-turn back into the station.
