The 7 Best Kids Roller Coasters
This wiki has been updated 16 times since it was first published in December of 2016. Just because most amusement parks prevent little kids from enjoying their rides, that doesn't mean your children can't enjoy some excitement, thanks to these roller coasters for kids. We've included a variety of options for several age ranges, as well as a few model kits your kids can build themselves. Make sure to outfit your offspring with a helmet and watch them closely as they play. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

While there was very little movement in this category since we last checked into it, we have shaken up the list a bit in favor of slightly more exciting options. Both of the Extreme models by Step2 made their way into our top three this time around, with the Hot Wheels model pulling up in third due to the potential for the little bump that comes late in its ride to scare some children. The model at number one offers both speed and an easier experience for youngsters, as it runs in a pretty straight line. We also added another option like the K'Nex offering on our last ranking, one that kids can build, but that's decidedly too small for anyone to ride. This one comes from LEGO, and I suspect they drew their design from the shape of the famous Cyclone on Coney Island in New York City. It's an intricate and enjoyable model to build and to play with afterwards.
