I'm a dork; I forgot to include my own favorite ride, the scrambler. I also meant to include two other common rides, the swinging ship and the river rapids.

That's a really tough choice. My current favorite ride just happens to be steel, but in general, I hate steel coasters. Most of my favorites are wooden, but there are a few wooden coasters (Mean Streak) that I flat out refuse to ride.

Then there are the steel/wood combo coasters (like Gemini) - those are among my favorites, although there aren't too many that go at high speeds :)

This was a tough call, my mood tends to dictate which rides I like the best.

I'd say for the most part it's wooden rollar coasters. The steel ones always have lots of loops, which are fun, but the wooden ones have those drops and shakiness with absolutely terrify me. And I want to be terrified on a coaster!
