111+ Creative Roller Coaster Names That Are Breath-Taking

Roller coasters were my favorite ride as a kid. I remember visiting every carnival in the town just to spend some quality time on these coasters. Thus, when my childhood friend called me a few years ago telling me he is planning on opening a theme park, my first question was “Will it have a roller coaster?” Fortunately, he said yes, and not only that, he asked me to pick a name for the ride!

Oh, I was thrilled! I began researching the best names for the ride ever listed and came across some great options. I wanted the name to be as thrilling as the experience. Roller coasters are tall structures and each bent presents the passengers with a new thrill.

So, naturally, I wanted to pick up a name that would do justice to this amazing rise. Some of the top options I came across are The Fall, The Kraken, Depth of belief, and so on.

After a year of thorough research, we finally named the roller coaster Skyfall. However, I don’t want extensive research to go to waste. In this article, you will find many historical roller coaster names along with roller coaster names for children that are fun and cool.
