As time has gone by, I can honestly say most roller coasters do not scare me anymore, like they did when I was a child. Mostly today coasters just excite me. I love riding them. But I'm rarely ever truly scared on a new coaster, no matter the speed, height, etc.
Which got me thinking: coaster or not, what is the last ride that truly scared me? Well for me it is a tie: both X-Scream and Insanity on top of the Stratosphere in Las Vegas. They both literally had me screaming - not in enjoyment - but in fear. My wife took pictures and video and the look on my face was sheer terror. Since my first time, I've ridden each multiple times, and X-Scream is by far the worst.
If you are not familiar with these rides, I highly recommend checking out a couple of YouTube videos here:

X-Scream - no doubt about it. That ride freaked me out to no end. Insanity didn't scare me that much - just disoriented me. But as far as X-Scream is concerned - I hadn't been that scared on a ride in years.
