    Not sure if there is already a thread for this (I had a brief look), but I'm interested to know what your favourite coaster is of each major type. I will use all the types from RCDB, in that order:-
    • Sit Down
    • Inverted
    • Suspended (Family)
    • Wing
    • Flying
    • Stand Up
    • Bobsled
    • Pipeline
    For me, it would go something like this:-
    • Sit Down - Shambhala (Number 1)
    • Inverted - Nemesis
    • Suspended - Vampire
    • Wing - Swarm
    • Flying - Manta
    • Stand Up - Shockwave (Drayton Manor)
    • Bobsled - Avalanche (Blackpool)
    • Pipeline - N/A
    Will be interesting to see what you lot come up with!

    Coaster Count:

    • Sit Down Kärnan (No. 1)
    • Inverted Nemesis/Black Mamba
    • Suspended Kavasten (I adore the theme and the station)
    • Wing Thunderbird (without a doubt - miles better than the rest)
    • Flying Tatsu (that pretzel <3)
    • Stand Up Riddler's Revenge (they're all a bit crap though)
    • Bobsled Avalanche (controversial)
    • Pipeline The one at Nagashima (only one I've done)
    Don't have time to think of more categories right now so I might post some more later.

    • Wing - The Swarm (Thorpe Park) (By default as it's the only one I've done, even though it is my overall #4 at present.)

    Hah, I did a topic like this when I was still a newbie. It's been dead for ages, though (makes me feel old).
    http://coasterforce.com/forums/threads/best-coasters-for-you-by-type.33048/

    Anyways, here's mine (some stuff changes after adding 200 creds to one's count).
    • Sit Down Taron (No. 1)
    • Inverted Katun
    • Suspended Ninja
    • Wing X2
    • Flying Tatsu
    • Stand Up Riddler's Revenge (the only one I've done)
    • Bobsled Bob
    • Pipeline Not been to Japan yet

    • Sit Down: Lightning Rod (I think everyone on the site knows by now)
    • Inverted: Montu (Afterburn is close behind but this wins for length and theming)
    • Suspended: Bat (solid ride)
    • Wing: Wild Eagle (seem to be the only one who doesn’t love Thunderbird)
    • Flying: Manta (spited by Tatsu so I don’t have anything that compares)
    • Stand Up: Georgia Scorcher (by a lot)
    • Bobsled: Disaster Transport (RIP you B-Movie of a coaster)
    • Pipeline: I was going to make a joke about being in line to buy a pipe, but it was too bad.
    • *4th Dimension: X2 (I don’t feel comfortable putting this is in sit down or wing category, too unique)

    If you want to get pedantic (and we all do love it when you get pedantic don't we ;) ), what you have done in your original post is list the various terms that RCDB uses when describing the design of a roller coaster not necessarily the type (category) of coaster.
    Ref ; https://rcdb.com/g.htm

    But its your "question" so its your rules ; just thought I'd clarify the design-ness of the question rather than the category-ness. :)

    --

    And just to be OnTopic;

    • Sit Down - Wildfire
    • Inverted - Nemesis
    • Suspended - Ninja
    • Wing - Eejanaika
    • Flying - Tatsu
    • Stand Up - Riddlers Revenge
    • Bobsled - Trace du Hourra
    • Pipeline - Ultra-Twister (Astroworld, just to be a geek)
