Those are some VERY interesting results! Great job to everybody involved in putting that on!

I'm happy to have ridden some of the top coasters including #1, thanks to TPR. ;)

Yummy! I just ate donkey!

Very interesting! Most of us who have ridden Medusa Steel Coaster love the crap out of it, but how many honestly expected it to be the #1 steel? I bet very few. Great to see it there regardless. Very happy my #1, Skyrush, made top 10 on both the steel and overall lists considering how polarizing it is on here. I frankly expected one of the RMCs to finally topple El Toro from its perch, but it's still holding strong!

A question for Chase, Robb, or others involved: How does one coaster rank ahead of another on the wood or steel-only list, yet rank behind it on the combined list? For example, Balder at #15 is ahead of Boulder Dash at #18 on the combined list, yet BD at #6 moves ahead of Balder at #7 on the wood list. Am I correct to interpret this as Balder comparing more favorably than BD to a majority of steel coasters even though BD scores better when only comparing wooden?

Coaster at Playland is SO good! Glad it's getting some love here!

Also, I concur that Medusa Steel is amazing. Definitely my favorite steel RMC

Everything else seems to check out as expected. I feel privledged to have ridden 18 of the top 25 coasters at this point, but excited to ride 6 more of them in Europe this June!

Wondering where SV will end up in this coming year's poll.

Off-topic, but the only thing CP is missing is a decent wooden coaster (all four of KI's woodies are better than Blue Streak IMO)
Top 10 steel: Steel Vengeance, Millennium Force, Maverick, Incredible Hulk, Banshee, Diamondback, Raptor, Top Thrill Dragster, Valravn, GateKeeper
Top 10 wood: Mystic Timbers, Shivering Timbers, Beast, Racer (KI), Viper, American Eagle, Woodstock Express, Blue Streak (CP), Mean Streak (RIP), Wolverine Wildcat

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

Wild Beast needs to be replaced by Wolverine (boobie bouncer) Wildcat, then boys and girls, we have ourselves a believable bottom ten woodie list ;)

Wow. I would never have guessed that a Togo Ultratwister would have ended up in the top 30 if it had enough riders.

Thanks for compiling this! El Toro was the only thing stopping RMC from having the entire top 5. That says a lot about RMC. I remember the Mexico TPR trip raving about how awesome Medusa was, but I'm still stunned to see it beat other steel stalwarts like Intimidator 305 or Expedition GeForce. This is definitely something that wouldn't have happened in the Golden Ticket Awards, so that's one reason why I really appreciate this poll being run.

I actually thought Wolverine Wildcat was a reasonably smooth coaster with some good air. Then again I thought the same thing about Wild Beast.
Top 5 Wood- Lightning Rod, Phoenix, Boulder Dash, Wildfire, El Toro
Top 5 Steel- Expedition GeForce, Iron Rattler, Fury 325, Twisted Colossus, Twisted Timbers
Top 5 Parks- Busch Gardens Williamsburg, Knoebels, Europa Park, Cedar Point, Disneyland
Most Recent Trip Report- Six Flags Mexico

Excellent results! The top 25 lists look like I would expect them to; the ones I've been on definitely deserve to be there, amd the ones I haven't I hear others rave about. RMC and Intamin both highly represented...checks out.
Top Wood: 1. The Outlaw Run 2. The Phoenix 3. The El Toro 4. The Voyage 5. The Twister
Top Steel: 1. The Millennium Force 2. The Skyrush 3. The Magnum XL-200 4. The Diamondback 5. The Maverick
Top Parks: 1. The Disneyland 2. The Dollywood 3. The Silver Dollar City 4. The Knoebels 5. The Holiday World
