Notes[edit]

Tower of Terror, which exerts more force on its riders than any other operating roller coaster

Moonsault Scramble exerted a maximum g-force of 6.2G on its riders. It operated from 1983 to 2000. Many other defunct roller coasters would appear on this list, however their maximum g-force was never measured or calculated.
