^ See, I never understood that, most enthusiasts don't rate B&M hypers too high, yet, they always do well, even though these polls are mainly taken by enthusiasts.

I find it interesting how rides like HeiBe Fahrt (Freizeitp Klotten) place in front of such rides like Oblivion, Furius Baco and Kingda Ka :?

Other than that I think it's nice to see some new coasters high up in the rankings! Dimondback, Blue Fire and Manta all placed high :) even iSpeed which has received some not so flattering reviews came at place 36! Which is a good thing hence I plan to visit Mirailandia next year :p
 
^ Some coaster enthusiasts do rank B&M Hypers high (I just disagree with that) but I think a lot of it is fanboys...or just going to their home park. For example, look at all the OH people. KI is their home park, they ride Diamondback, love it, and rank it high.

I couldn't find my ballot. :(

Oh well, once more the Poll disagrees with me with Alpengeist, Oblivion and California Screamin' put quite lower than coasters such as Nemesis, which I have to say again, I don't rate very highly. :p

I am quite pleased that Apollo ranked 16th :)

However, I'm quite baffled that Iron Dragon ranked above even Anaconda... I understand that Anaconda is rough, but I also understand that Iron Dragon is lame?

And it shocks me that X2 is as low as it is, but 44 out of 300-odd isn't that terrible, and I'm also glad to see Millennium Force back in the Top 10.
 
^ Iron Dragon isn't that bad, actually...apart from its incomprehensible boringness, there's nothing terribly wrong with it. It's just resolutely average.
 
Erg...I was holding out hope that Katun would beat Nemesis after all. Anyone on here ridden both and prefer Nemesis? I'd love to know how many ballots where people rode both voted Nemesis higher...

On the other hand, I was also worried that MF wouldn't make the top 10...so that's refreshing.

What a joke that Apollo's Chariot is that high.

Not *this* OH person...but then as noted, I didn't get a ballot in :(.

The poll seems to agree with the general of my rankings but I agree about the B&M hypers being too high up. Love to see Montu still keeping up there at 18. It's good how on both wood and steel my poll has been near the top on the page with all the polls on. :)

One thing I thought was weird was that Cyclone and Tower of Terror, Scooby Doo and Cyclone got " * " rankings in the main because they had 12 riders, but Superman Escape only had 9 riders which was too few for the main list.

Just sticks out to me because it would be rare for an enthusiast to visit both parks, but not ride our flagship coaster :?

Regardless, Superman would have sat at 30th spot due to its winning percentage, outclassing all the accelerators barring Storm Runner.

Only 2 things I'm surprised at really, firstly, The Ultimate only making it in at 146th!

And secondly, Mumbo Jumbo at 158th. It shouldn't have even made it on to the poll.

Good to see JO climb to 224th :roll:

Hmmm, Insane near the top and TPR had a trip to Scandinavia last year... ;)

So Behemoth got sent out by Diamonback...

And all the rest are basically the same... Lol...

Yeah, I agree with Jake, these lists are silly...

As compared to all the other B&M Hyper experiences, I thought DBack has a superior ride experience tbh. But, when you average all of my personal rankings for the rides, the rides are definitely not that high up. Nitro and Apollo don't even crack my top 30.. while Goliath and DBack are in my Top 15.

I think this newer generation of B&M Hyper might have a good thing going for it, not because KI gets a lot of rides.. but because the ride is actually a good one.

And to generalize all OH people as 1. being a KI fanboy and 2. Loving the ride.. is a fail. Personally, Waldameer is my home park, and I know quite a few people who didn't enjoy the ride.

The poll seemed to come out alright after all of the scandal, but it still seems absurd to have rides with such small ridership as Eagle's Fortress, Piraten/Kawasemi, Atlantis Adventure and Pyrenees rank so high.

Let the masses decide, not some small, self-proclaimed elite.
