There are some roller coasters that are widely contested on having the steepest drop, such as coasters with no official measurements and ones that surpass 135°, the 135° figure comes from adding 90° and 45°, or in other words, closer to upside-down than to vertical.
Coasters like this include Sequoia Magic Loop which has a Saxophone element, this is essentially a 180° hairpin drop which leaves riders upside-down, therefore more than 135°.
there is also Sky Explorer or other coasters of the same model, and Fear Coaster, with drops of around 130°, but neither have official measurements. also Fear Coaster is usually not considered to have a beyond-vertical drop because the entirety of the beyond-vertical portion of the drop has trim brakes.
Though Switchback at ZDT's Amusement Park technically reaches 87°, it is actually a vertical rollback.
