    Didn't expect the deadline to be that late. I'd better hold off a while.

    Well. I’ve done only one wooden coaster as of yet... it probably isn’t worth me filling in a ballot to be honest. Would be good it they did a poll for steel coasters though, I imagine there is just way too many to include though.

    I left off Coaster at Playland as it’s been 11 years since I rode that and my ranking of it might unfairly skewer its performance. Also I’ve now realised Roller Coaster at GYPB must’ve got deleted at some point when ranking but meh, not sure I can be bothered to send an updated ballot just for that. I’ve ridden 107 woodies so I guess that means 9(?) of them are either defunct (RIP Mouse...) or not currently operating (e.g. Colossos).

    I really struggled with this. Felt like the top five was easy enough (duh), but after that it was pretty hard work. The middle and bottom was mostly just a guess because so much of them are so forgettable.

    Anyway, I've submitted. Will be interesting to see the results!
