I think it's you. B&M built a ton of spectacular rides in the 90's, Kumba, Montu, Alpengeist, the Batman clones, Apollo's Chariot, Nemesis (which I haven't ridden), Dragon Khan (which I haven't ridden) Raptor, Top Gun and many others (I didn't forget about Medusa and the standups, they just weren't good). Oh... and Knoebels built Twister which is an amazing ride that's unfortunately completely overshadowed by the Phoenix. A few other great wood coasters opened like Comet at great Escape (relocated) and Raven.

1960's - Blue Streak (Cedar Point)

2000's - Millenium Force (Cedar Point)

2010's - Cheetah Hunt (Busch Gardens)

 

For me, everything from the 30's to the 40's were the worst time for roller coasters. No one was riding them due to the war and the recession, and more than half of america's theme parks during this time closed.

This might be true but I am not a big B&M person - they are fun to do but nothing special IMO.

 

For 2010s so far its Karacho (Gerstlauer Infinity) for me - but will decide after riding Smiler (Gerstlauer Infinity) and Helix (MACK Accelerator). This said I am also not a big wooden coaster person...
