    Top 5 Steel Coasters:

    1. Alpengeist-Busch Gardens Europe
    2. Magnum XL 200-Cedar Point
    3. Superman: Ride of Steel-Six Flags New England
    4. Millennium Force-Cedar Point
    5. Raptor-Cedar Point

    Top 5 Wooden Coasters:

    1. The Beast-King's Island
    2. Shivering Timbers-Michigan's Adventure
    3. The Yankee Cannonball-Canobie Lake (Salem, NH)
    4. Viper-Six Flags Great America
    5. The Hersheypark Wildcat-Hersheypark

    Don't ask me to combine these lists, because I cant. To me wooden coasters and steel coasters are unique and cant be compared.

    ^As an add on for those of you that don't know:

    Roller Coaster: A ride that after an initially being powered (by a launch or lift hill) is almost entirely gravity driven down a track consisting of wooden or steel rails.

    Not to be a nitpicker, but maybe you will find this interesting...Gemini is actually a steel coaster. Steel track=steel coaster, despite the beautiful support structure. The opposite would be true. Believe it or not, the legendary Coney Island Cyclone (1927) has a steel structure. But...wood track= wood coaster

    Not sure why I didn't list any Disneyland coasters - must've thought it was 'other than Disney' coasters.

    So, Add to my list:

    1. Matterhorn
    2. Space Mountain
    3. Big Thunder Mountain Railroad
    4. California Screamin'
    5. This one coaster at Mission Beach in San Diego that I remember....

    ^ Giant Dipper.

    It's got it's good moments and bad moments. But it's nice that it's still there and hasn't been demolished.
