Bandit (Japanese: バンデット) is a steel sit-down roller coaster located at Yomiuriland in Inagi, Tokyo, Japan. Built by TOGO, it opened in 1989 and was the world's fastest roller coaster until Great American Scream Machine opened one year later at Six Flags Great Adventure.

The Bandit has a very long track length, with many airtime hills and banked curves, as well as an up-ward helix. It is the second longest, fastest and highest roller coaster built by TOGO, after Fujiyama at Fuji-Q Highland.


3 trains with 7 cars per train. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in 2 rows for a total of 28 riders per train.
