This list is of current record holders at the date(s) indicated. Some past rides have pulled G-forces up to 12G (the Flip Flap Railway), which is dangerously extreme.



Why roller coaster loops aren't circular

At 2Gs, a 100-pound person would feel 200 pounds of force. 4G is considered a safe limit for sustained forces, as inexperienced riders beyond that may lose consciousness. Riders at this threshold often begin to experience what is known as "greyout".
