^ What the POV doesn't show is that it's just a very solid 'overall' ride. It's not rough, it keeps it's speed VERY well through the entire ride, has some great airtime, and one of the most gnarly lateral moments ever! IMO, it's a solid B+ coaster. And for an older CCI, it's kept up very well.

^Sounds good to me. POVs rarely ever do a ride justice, unless there's a crazy man in them talking about airtime and twisties. :lol:

This list is awesome, I think I've been on a solid aray of woodies but when I see I've only ridden 5 of the top 20...wow! I must admit Voyage was amazing but it definitely had it's rougher moments, but El Toro totally deserves where it's at, it's still smooth and it's still out of control! Can't wait to see Mitch's Steel Pole!

Just out of curiosity, since I've seen some writings on the interwebs of crybabies trying to imply that TPR members purposely ranked Voyage low, how many of you ranked it is #1 - or a least in your top 5?

I have a feeling it's a LOT more than some people would think....

I ranked Voyage #2.

Again, I can totally understand why some people don't like Voyage. People here who ranked it low are people who did not like the ride, plain and simple.

If they want to see how many people ranked Voyage in certain places, they should just scroll through the individual ballots. It's not like Mitch makes it a secret what people vote for. I'm one of the biggest fans of Voyage you'll find anywhere, and it didn't bother me at all that it dropped in the rankings. If it was giving rougher than normal rides this year, then it probably deserved to drop (just like any other woodie that starts getting rough, otherwise Georgia Cyclone and GhostRider would still be in the top 10).

^ I realize that. And you are far more level headed that many of the batshit crazy coaster enthusiasts that would make such a claim, but the accusation was specifically that TPR members were ranking it low on purpose. I personally think that's not the case, so I was curious for myself.

If you ranked Voyage #1 or in the top five, please post it here and let us know!
