What is the safest type of rollercoaster?

I know wooden coasters can be old and rough, metal coasters can get stuck, and launch ones can fail to launch and come into the station backwards. I am scared of new rollercoasters, but I ride them anyway for thrill, but what are the safest ones? Help!

I do not know if anyone know "what is the safest rollercoaster". But I would say that a roller coaster that is looked over (looking so nothing is broken and repairing the broken stuff etc.) it makes it less likely to 'fail'.

Also, the less things that can brake and be dangerous, the bigger chance it haves to be more safe.

Probably, although I'm sure not as fun, anything that doesn't go upside down.

They are all safe. I mean they want people to enjoy them and be safe. There's not supposed to be any danger at all. If someone gets hurt, it's a complete accident and not expected in any way.

They are all very safe or they would not be allowed to continue to run. Although as we've seen through recent events, nothing is 100% safe. I think the danger is what makes roller-coasters so much fun but no one should have to lose a life on one to get that thrill.

Yes, the thrill from it is possible because it isn't 100% safe. I have no clue but maybe it does have something to do with adrenaline. You don't feel fully safe and because of that the adrenaline comes in?

That is true; someone got thrown off a rollercoaster and was killed because it malfunctioned at MY beach. I am never riding another one of their rides!!!

They are equally safe. Accidents in coasters are very rare but when one does happen it tends to be catastrophic no matter what kind it is. They all have ekements that go high, very fast and crazy. If a seat restraint or brakes are going to fail someone is probably going to die no matter what type coaster it is.

The safest type would probably be a metal coaster because they would have wheels on top and bottom of the track while a wooden coaster would be just sitting on the tack an could possibly break more easily thats why the son of beast was so amazing(it was wooden and had a loop) but it crashed. Other than that all roller coasters are just as safe as the next, accidents are just what it's called accidents.
