The very first roller coaster of the world was opened in 1884 in New York. The date sure proves that these joyful rides are among us since the 1800s which means that just like many aged things, this too, has seen a significant amount of changes throughout its lifetime.
The type of roller coaster that was first made has seen a change far greater than one could have imagined, not only the head-scratching heights is a thing with the present ones but the creativity and innovation to make these rides more attractive has become a solid idea of the present.
Keeping that in mind, it’s very obvious that the planners for these rides are using the structure to its minimal best, which brings us to this list of top 7 rides that are inspired by video games or are themed upon video games!
The Crypt is a suspended top spin flat ride that is quite popular in Doswell, Virginia. The reason for the ride being in the headlines is not only for the fun that it provides but also the fact that this ride in Kings Domain was formerly known as Tomb Raider: Firefall!

Angry Bird 4D experience
