I just came back from Las Vegas, and I went to the Stratosphere tower. I went on the coaster called the High Roller. They said it is the highest roller coaster at over 900 feet. Do you think it is the highest coaster in the world?

Highest, yes. There are 3 differant height catagories: how high, how tall, and size of drop.

If you really want to be technical, Santa's Workshop in Colorado has High Roller beat. The park is at an elevation of 7500 ft. They already lay claim to the highest Ferris Wheel!

The Tower isn't claiming above sea level in that case it would be 3000ft high as Las Vegas is a little over 2100ft above sea level. They are claiming highest above ground which is 909ft above the ground.
