2009 Coasterpoll Results

I'm expecting EF to either get a star or disappear entirely.

At least two of the ballots it appeared on were plainly garbage/faked, and that would pull it below the 12 riders number for inclusion.

(The ballots in question showed one steel coaster from every park on the ballot, but no park had two coasters ranked. Essentially, a claim to have ridden a single coaster at nearly every park in the world, but never riding a second one at any park.)

Colossos didn't to badly if it came 12th
Terminator did well for a mediocre ride.

That is all
 
Personally, I didn't find Prowler's position particularly surprising...I am kind of surprised El Toro is still beating T-express. I certainly agree with anyone else who doesn't think Diamondback is really a top-10 coaster, certainly not when Behemoth is nowhere to be found...no question in my mind which of those two is better. And I cannot believe Nemesis is beating Katun again...nonsense. I was kinda surprised Manta's not up there; guess other people didn't like it quite as well as I did. I certainly wouldn't put Goliath @ Walibi that high either.

I missed both ballots, which I'm kinda bummed about...

Lol, Intamins and B&Ms everywhere in the Steel section unsuprisingly...
What else were you expecting?

Oblivion is better than Nemesis.
Good thing I wasn't eating or drinking anything.

The only wood poll surprise in the top 50 was Cornball Express for me.. that coaster was superb.

I find it worrying that people think Blackpool's Wild Mouse is the 3rd best woodie in Britain.

^Well, it's not as if there's a huge choice...

Megaphobia, followed by Grand National, followed by pretty much any of the others in my opinion.

Same here, but at least El Toro came in at #20. I think it's much better than Raven & Knievel (& Thunderhead too actually), but at least it finished well ahead of Rumbler.

I more or less agree with this poll, but I don't think Rumbler, Raven, and Timbers really deserve to be in the top thirty. Also, Beast and Jack Rabbit made it sadly low, and there's not a chance that Le Monstre is better than Racer at Kennywood. Glad to see Evel made it so high though, same with Voyage, Buolder Dash, Ravine Flyer II, and Toro.. Not that those were exactly surprises :p .

I know. Way better than Nash - Should be higher :p .
I agree with this.

Also, Megaphobia was dead and boring when I rode. Wild Mouse @ BPPB is my #1 woodie in the UK.

I was also surprised by that. It isn't one of my favorite coasters or anything, but with nearly every coaster enthusiast loving the ride at night, I'd think it would be higher.

I think the fact that it's a crappy ride doesn't overtake the amazing night experience.

Being different isn't a reason to like something. If that was the case, you'd have to beat the boys off with a stick. :p

Personally, the ride has gone down hill also.. less fun and more rough.

^ Well it wasn't like it was an amazing ride, but it was different, fun, and very quirky so.. I liked it!
That's what she said!!! :twisted:

*ahem* cool)

Just ignore me...I'll be in the pit of shame if you want to find me. :)
