4: El Toro at Six Flags Adventure
Although the Kingda Ka roller coaster which is located nearby looms over it, El Toro also has its place in our list of scariest roller coasters in the United States. This wooden roller coaster was built in 2006. With an impressive 70mph speed, this powerhouse has a massive drop that will make you feel both weightless and sightless (yes indeed! You will be too scared to open your eyes) with its “headchopper” effect.
