Are we counting racing / dueling coasters as one? I'm talking Dauling Dragon, Lightning Racer, Joris en de Draak, etc...

I've never even heard of that.

I hadn't looked at it too much until now, but I see two big differences. 1) I'm trying to include a signifigantly larger set to be ranked, besides 1-10. 2) I'm trying to make it significantly easier to use. I'm hoping it gets to a point you can update it throughout the summer, as you're riding, not waiting months later for a text based ballot.

Yes, I would at least hope so. It would just seem so silly to me that, in the event we would ever do this, we would give an award specifically to one side of Lightning Racer.

See how dumb that sounds? :P

Anyone having trouble with the ranking page? The page isn't letting me drag and drop any of the selections to rank them. My top 3 are currently Blue Streak, Cedar Creek Mine Ride, and Corkscrew, that might throw the rankings off a bit.

Fun. Dang. I've got an idea, and I'll take a look a little later today.


I think I figured out part of the problem. If I go to a park's page and click through that I have ridden everything at that park, then immediately go to the "Ridden" page, those ones I had just marked still show that they're not checked off as being ridden. If I give it a minute and then refresh the page, they are then checked off. So, there's some sort of delay and I guess I was just too fast for the site... :lmao:
