A stand-up roller coaster features trains with cars that are ridden in a standing position. These rides are generally very intense and often carry a higher height restriction than most roller coasters.

While popular in the 1980s and 90s, stand-up roller coasters have since fallen out of fashion. The last new stand-up roller coaster is Freestyle, which opened in 2015.

Notable Stand-Up Roller Coasters[edit]

  • The Riddler's Revenge - The tallest, fastest, and longest stand-up roller coaster in the world. It also features the most inversions, with six.
  • Dangai - The oldest ride of this type. It opened in 1982.
  • Momonga Standing and Loop Coaster - The oldest operating ride of this type. It opened in 1979 as a sit-down roller coaster, but was changed to stand-up in 1982; one day after the opening of Dangai.
