I am not seeing duplicate entries for T3 and Pulsar on our end, so there shouldn't be an issue with your ranking. Thanks for taking the time! As this year's poll is still in "beta", things may be a little different next year, but we're sticking with what we have for now.


That looks like the ranking got added twice somehow. I don't know how (creating a record for a user and coaster that already exists just updates it), but I've removed the duplicates from your ballot.

Can you see the donkey in my toast?

We originally limited the selection to the largest traveling coasters at the time - Olympia Looping, Alpina Bahn, Spinning Racer, Hollenblitz, Teststrecke, Spinning Coaster XXL, and Wilde Maus XXL. Considering the Drifting Coaster's popularity and uniqueness, we'll consider adding it to the 2018 poll.


Thank you. It was one of the surprise hits of my Octoberfest trip last year.

On another note has the coaster poll officially closed already? I’ve already ranked over 100 coasters but could add more tonight if it’s still open. If not, no worries.

I'm sorry, but I sort of have to laugh that you sign up for our forums the day AFTER the poll closes and we have been discussing the beta test for nearly 4 months only to tell us now what you don't like about it in a "compliment sandwich" format. While we all appreciate the feedback, it sort of makes it hard for us to take it seriously.


Hi Robb - yes, I agree, this looks as some kind of bad timing. I have tried the built-in feedback function before and finally signed-up to post the feedback here, because I think such a poll is rather important. I love to know where the important coasters are, when I am planning trips. And somehow I am strangely fascinated by rankings. :omg:

So please, consider this a serious feedback, especially from someone who knows from its job, how important a good UI is for the success of such a project. Maybe you can think about it in the next iterations...

Finally, to introduce me a little bit better, my Top10 in the ranking. I'm a "not too intense with comfort and lots of fun"-guy. =)

1. Fury325
2. Superman The Ride (SFNE)
3. Goliath (SFGA - yup, my no. 1 RMC, because it IS short)
4. Cheetah Hunt
5. Shambhala
6. Balder
7. Wildfire (yes, I placed this behind Balder)
8. Helix
9. Storm Chaser
10. Expedition GeForce (clearly Superman is better, but this is just 1h drive away from where I live)

I will also use this forum to post my impressions of some new rides here in Europe, trip starts in June.

I finalized my ballot late night on Saturday and submitted it... I'd been procrastinating for quite some time but I was glad to get it in under the buzzer, such as it was. My Top 10 and Bottom 5:

    1 - Fury 325 [B&M at Carowinds.]
    2 - Phantom's Revenge [Morgan at KW.]
    3 - Intimidator 305 [Intamin at KD.]
    4 - El Toro [Intamin at SFGAdv.]
    5 - Skyrush [Intamin at Hersheypark.]
    6 - Wicked Cyclone [RMC at SFNE.]
    7 - Lightning Rod [RMC at Dollywood.]
    8 - YOLOcoaster [Premier at SFMM.]
    9 - Phoenix [PTC at Knoebels.]
    10 - Millennium Force [Intamin at CP.]
    -----
    180 - Vortex [B&M at Carowinds.]
    181 - Firehawk [Vekoma at KI.]
    182 - Nighthawk [Vekoma at Carowinds.]
    183 - Soarin' Eagle [Zamperla at ScreamZoneNYC.]
    184 - Green Lantern: First Flight [Intamin at SFMM.]

I also signed the kiddo up for his own account and we had a fun hour or so going through his personal favorites. It was really interesting to see which ones he rated highly and which ones ended up super low on his list. Here's his top 10 and bottom 5 as well (keep in mind he's not yet 52" so he hasn't been on a lot of the ones with higher height restrictions; the biggest one is Wild Eagle with 50" at Dollywood).

    1 - Lightning Rod [RMC at Dollywood.]
    2 - Wicked Cyclone [RMC at SFNE.]
    3 - Wild One [Dinn at SFA.]
    4 - Goliath [RMC at SFGAm.]
    5 - Phantom's Revenge [Morgan at KW.]
    6 - El Toro [Intamin at SFGAdv.]
    7 - Phoenix [PTC at Knoebels.]
    8 - Loch Ness Monster [Arrow at BGW.]
    9 - Verbolten [Zierer at BGW.]
    10 - Millennium Force [Intamin at CP.]
    -----
    93 - Crossbow [Zierer at BowcraftNJ.]
    94 - Demon [Arrow at SFGAm.]
    95 - Untamed [Gerstlauer at CanobieLake.]
    96 - Dragon Coaster [Church at RyePlayland.]
    97 - Wildcat [GCI at Hersheypark.]

I was really surprised he ranked Wild One so highly to be quite honest, but he was very firm about it. He was also very firm that Wildcat was the second worst coaster he'd ever been on -- the actual worst one closed down a while back. On the plus side, he's looking forward to giving it a second try when it reopens as Steel Vengeance. ;) And I think it's safe to say he's a RMC fanboy in training... three out of the five RMCs he's been on were in his top 5, and a fourth one would have taken the top spot if Twisted Timbers was included in this poll. After riding it over and over again opening weekend, he's declared it his new favorite!
That coaster dad [316] and that coaster kiddo [175]. Road trip buddies for life.
Dad's faves: Fury 325. Phantom's Revenge. Intimidator 305. El Toro. Skyrush.

Kiddo's faves: Banshee. Top Thrill Dragster. Valravn. Apollo's Chariot. Twisted Timbers.

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

I think I need to start re-evaluate Superman the Ride moving forward b/c the ride experience is close to what the what it was for S:ROS (2000 -2009). That ride was incomparable to anything done with tubular steel track that I've ridden. I really don't know where/how I would rank the 2017 version.

My Top 10 List
1 - Superman the Ride - Six Flags New England
2 - Outlaw Run - Silver Dollar City
3 - Maverick - Cedar Point
4 - Voyage - Holiday World
5 - Boulder Dash - Lake Compounce
6 - Phoenix - Knoebels Amusement Park and Resort
7 - Joker - Six Flags Discovery Kingdom
8 - Lightning Rod - Dollywood
9 - Wicked Cyclone - Six Flags New England
10 - Ravine Flyer II - Waldameer Water World

My Bottom 10 List
127 - Green Lantern: First Flight - Six Flags Magic Mountain
128 - Boomerang Coast to Coaster - Six Flags Discovery Kingdom
129 - Flashback - Six Flags New England
130 - Zoomerang - Lake Compounce
131 - Pandemonium - Six Flags New England
132 - Pony Express - Knott's Berry Farm
133 - Predator - Darien Lake
134 - Wildcat - Lake Compounce
135 - Grizzly - California's Great America
136 - Wild Beast - Canada's Wonderland

Thanks, I feel less bad about putting Green Lantern in my bottom 10 now. Also,

Last month I went to Arnold’s park in Iowa and rode Legend for the first time. This prompted me to look for it on coasterpoll to add it to my ranks because it was actually pretty good, but I can’t find it. I assume that it was not added because it was forgotten about because of obscurity. But if this isn’t not the case I would like to know why it was not included.
Please wake up. We are trying a new technique. We don't know where this will show up in your dream, but we hope this message will reach you. You are in a coma. Please wake up. Your family needs you.

Hey, this coaster has been added to the poll. Apologies for it not being there, it being left out was not intentional.
