Rollercoasters are both fun and terrifying. Terrifyingly fun, actually! If you’ve ever been on one, odds are that all the twists, turns, and adrenaline pumping through your veins made it a very memorable experience. And if you’re as awesome and cheesy as we are, then you might even have bought one of those amusement park photos that show you laughing, screaming, and (possibly even) crying while on the ride.
Some of these photos, however, are a cut above the rest and in a league of their own. Whether intentionally or by design! The Bored Panda team has put together this wild ride of a list showing off the very best of the best that rollercoaster photos have to offer. They’re hilarious, creative, and wholesome to a whole other degree.
Strap yourself in, hang on tight, and scroll down to start the ride. Don’t forget to upvote the photos that you enjoyed the most, Pandas! Oh and if any of you thrill-seekers are raring to go again, then you’ll want to hop in and try our previous article about rollercoaster photos right here.

While some of these photos are obviously staged for comedic effect (hello, rollercoaster Jenga players! We bow before your vast imagination), others are 100 percent natural.

I Enjoyed My Daughter's First Disney Ride More Than She Did
We don’t know about you, dear Pandas, but some of us here are mighty afraid of heights. So riding on a rollercoaster means having an inner battle within ourselves about whether we want to have fun or stay earthbound and look at everyone else enjoying themselves. Getting over the fear of heights (it’s known as acrophobia) or any other phobia is a challenge in itself. However, it is possible and that way you can have more freedom to enjoy all the things that life has to offer you, big or small.

The expert noted that any phobia is possible to overcome. It’ll be tough, but given the right support, everyone can do it. “Regardless of how a phobia originates, overcoming them can be difficult but is possible.

However, the more complex a phobia is, the longer we’ve had it, the more work we’ll have to put in to overcome it. Whether it’s a phobia of heights, of going fast, or absolutely anything at all. “A more complex and long-term phobia may need similar treatment given to someone with an anxiety disorder or mental health illness; counseling, cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy or psychotherapy are all good options to explore,” Nuno told Bored Panda.
