*Obviously GTA is extremely inaccurate at ranking the "Best" roller coasters in the world, I think it's fun to see how many you've been on!

For full reference:

76 people voted for Steel Forceless as their favorite steel coaster while Storm Runner at Hersheypark didn't even make the list?? What a joke. Also no Tatsu or Hulk or Dragon Challenge on this list and I could think of five steel coasters from Japan that could be on this list and not a single one made it on it.



Yeah it's pretty messed up. In fact, there's not one single Asian coaster (Or any coaster outside of North America/Europe). I don't understand how coasters like Conneaut's Blue Streak, Flying Turns, or Coney Island Cyclone make it, but T Express doesn't?

Also, it's infuriating that Boss is ranked higher than Wildfire, lol

The Golden Ticket Awards seem to have similar winners year after year. You could just copy and paste the results from last year and they would be close to this year's. :)

Bull, Kings Island does not in my opinion have the best kids area. i Honestly think Kings Dominion should've gotten that one. :lol:
Cannonball Run Menace, 112 rides and counting! :br

They should have minus points for removing Zeus from the show a few years ago. At least we still know the real truth about the origin of Texas.

Of all the legitimate gripes about the GTAs, this is not one. People's tastes don't just radically change from year to year, so why would you expect major changes in the poll results?

Here's what I agree with for the Top 50 lists:
- El Toro back at number 1 wood
- Lightning Rod cracking top 5 wood
- Maverick in the top 10
- Nitro, Apollo's Chariot, and Magnum slipping down
- Skyrush in the top 50 (I also have indoor plumbing in my house)

What I find dumb, but fun to complain about:
- Iron Rattler #4 steel?? I mean steel RMCs are awesome and deserve top 10 accolades, just not this one
- Beast ahead of Outlaw Run
- Shivering Timbers at #25 (most underrated woodie in my opinion)
- Behemoth 20 spots below Diamondback. Unnecessary.
- I305 must've lost its GPS because it still can't find it's way to the Top 10 steel
