Now there's a question and a half. I'm more out of touch tahn I used to be, but if you investigate these, you'll probably find something to interest you:

Looping
Dragon Khan (Port Aventura)
Superman la Atracción de Acero (Warner Bros Madrid)

Inverted
Katun (Miribilandia)

Wooden
Balder (Liseberg)
Colossos (Heide Park)
Troy (Toverland)
El Toro (Freizeitpark Plohn)

Steel Non-looping
Expedition GeForce (Holiday Park)

Launched
Blue Fire Megacoaster (Europa Park)

Have I forgotten any, chaps?

A good site to use is RCDB (linked). You;ll be able to find everything on there. There are loads of great coasters in Europe.

Nice 1.....

I think next visit has to be portoventura.
For good coasters that seems to have its fair share.

Any1 know if there is any truth in lightwater valley rebuilding "Ultimate" to reclaim worlds longest?

Having been on lots of European coasters i would say the top 5 are:

Goliath
Dragon Kahn
Stealth
Blue Fire
Nemesis

I've ridden so many coasters I actually have trouble remembering them now!

I get to ride a certain vertical drop one in Staffordshire *quite a lot* ;) it still wakes me up in the morning/gets me excited hanging on the edge and releasing down underground - a simple but effective concept

As people have already suggested the most thrilling rides, particularly Balder, Blue Fire and Dragon Khan, i'll suggest the more stranger rides

5 Randomly Quirky Coasters in Europe
Insane - Gröna Lund (Stockholm, Sweden)
Euro Mir - Europa Park (Rust, Germany)
Hochschaubahn - Wiener Prater (Vienna, Austria)
Mumbo Jumbo - Flamingo Land (Yorkshire, England)
Steeplechase - Pleasure Beach (Blackpool, England)
