RollerCoaster or Roller Coaster?

Saturday, May 4, 2002 8:52 PM
I was wondering if there is any official way to spell it, is it Roller Coaster with a space or Rollercoaster with no space? Or does it matter? I see it spelled both ways all the time so I have been wondering for a while...

I don't think it matters but I spell it with a space - Roller Coaster

Not that it matter, but I spell it roller coaster with a space. But I also see many people spell it without a space. I don't think there's a right or wrong way to spell it.

ApolloAndy's avatar It's two words according to Webster.

Where-as it is commonly spelled as a single word (Rollercoaster), MS WORD tells you that it is wrong. Two words is correct for the "dictionary definitive spelling" of Roller Coaster.

I myself like to spell it as a single word. It is a Rollercoaster.

Like already mentioned, the proper way to spell it is with the space, but I'll spell it either way, because it really doesn't matter, something good to know, but you won't need to worry about using it that much on here. I think everyone knows what you mean rather you say "rollercoaster" or "roller coaster," so I wouldn't worry about it beyond just wanting to know which is proper.
