Those awards are crap but Phoenix is great. I have no issue with anyone declaring it the best wood coaster.

Don't let this donkey melt you with its laser eyes!

It is kind of wild when you think about it and realize that Mystic Timbers won "Best New Ride" over the unprecedented Flight of Passage. "Yeah flying on the dragon things from Avatar sure is a breathtaking and amazing experience but have you ever ridden a GCI wooden coaster?"
In my opinion El Toro and Intimidator 305 ride fairly and are free of material roughness.
(That's an auditor joke don't kill me)


Coaster Count: 113

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

So I was digging around on the internet when I came across this:

After searching on TPR I found that this video had only ever been posted once before in 2007 on it's own thread which didn't make it past the first page, so I though I'd share it here, because I love the fact that Phoenix has it's own wonderfully 80's* theme song! :lover: Not only is it very 80's* and very Knoebles, it's also quite catchy (I even added it to my music playlist). It's also cool to get a look at the park from decades ago.



*Okay I'm not actually sure when the song was written, and I'm not 100% sure which decade it's from, I'm just guessing 80's based on the fact that it sounds super 80's imo :lol:
1. El Toro :airtime: 2. El Toro :airtimer: 3. El Toro :airtime: 4. El Toro :airtimer: --- I'm not good at ranking...

Am I allowed to eat donkey during lent?

I was telling my wife that the Wolverine Wildcat is a copy of the Phoenix. And that the Phoenix was just voted the best wooden roller coaster. Her response was then why is the Wildcat so awful :lmao: :lmao:
Best Wood Lightning Rod....Goliath SFGAM....Shivering Timbers....Storm Chaser...Voyage
Best Steel Maverick...Lighting Run.....Montu...Mako..Fury...Afterburn...Manta
Honorable mentions Kumba..Raging Bull..Legend..Cornball..M Force..Rapter..Mr Freeze

You know what....Way to many good coasters the best :lmao:
