Vuoristorata is a roller coaster in the Finnish amusement park Linnanmäki. It was opened on July 13, 1951 and was originally designed as a temporary attraction for the Linnanmäki park, opened in 1950. One of the main reasons for its construction was to attract tourists of the 1952 Summer Olympics in Helsinki. Since then, its temporary status was renewed for extended periods, until eventually it was regarded as a permanent structure.

Since 1951, Vuoristorata has been the most popular ride at Linnanmäki every year. It is the most legendary amusement ride in Finland, and a symbol of the Linnanmäki park; even the old park logo had a shape representing the climbs and descents of Vuoristorata. "Vuoristorata" is simply "roller coaster" in Finnish (literally: vuoristo = mountain range, rata = track; mountain range track). Vuoristorata has never had a name differing from the general word used for roller coaster rides.
