This time, we're looking at best from each manufacturer, again based off of the combined list (because some manufacturers do wooden AND steel coasters. The manufacturers here on the list all have at least a few coasters that are at / near the top, and all of them meet our ridership requirements for ranking. If you really, really want me to do something like best Zamperla coasters, or best Soquet coasters, or some obscure list like that, well, then you really don't have a life and I feel sorry for you. ;)

Gravity Group / Gravitykraft: Ravine Flyer II, Voyage, Mine Blower, Twister (Grona Lund), Wooden Warrior

Schwarzkopf: Olympia Looping, Shockwave (SFOT), Lisebergbanan, Mind Bender (SFOG), Teststrecke


The only strange results to me are Mine Blower and the absence of Galaxyland's Mind Bender .

MineBlower was fun but I think we have a case of new car smell.

AJ - Did Mindbender at Edmonton have enough riders to qualify?

No, it did not. If it would have had enough riders, it would have been the #1 Sckwarzkopf (Mindbender at 48, Olympia Looping at 58).

I would like to point out that from this point forward, everything posted to this thread is inside parentheses. :p

I'm hoping we will get more ballots for next year as there were a few rides that it was a shame not to officially be able to include.

I asked before but I think it got lost in the flood, do fewer voters tend to skewer the results too much in 1 direction, is that why they aren't included?

Just out of curiosity If I was the only person to ride Draken at Gyeongju World and, hypothetically I'm the kind of enthusiast who now feels superior that I have this exclusive credit that nobody else does (because we know they exist) and rank it top would it get bumped to the top of the polls?

Ironically enough with my question though, as one of the less than twelve who rated T Express, the only two coasters I put higher than it both still ended up lower on the polls (Kawasemi and Maverick).

Yes, that's what happens. And if we try to apply more/less weight based on ridership it becomes heavily US or heavily non-US biased, depending on the direction.
