1.) El Toro

or something including those 3.

 

The real winners were

3.) Shivering Timbers

My personal top 3 is:

 

1. Cyclops

2. Hershey Wildcat

3. Hades

 

I should be going to HW as soon as I get back home to Cincy, so I'm hoping to edit those in somehow.

 

Jared"Beast is NOT a top 3"Becker

Yeah, I would not base anything off the Golden Ticket Awards!!!!

 

Use Mitch's poll for an idea of what the best 'enthusiast' rides are. The Golden Tickets are more of a 'GP/Suck Up" list.

 

Here's the link to Mitch's poll: http://www.ushsho.com/bestrollercoasterpoll.htm

 

I predict that this year Voyage will take the #1 spot and Balder will take #2. However, Balder will always be #1 to me!!!!

^ The Golden Ticket awards voted Valhalla the best Water ride in the world! So I gathered they were pretty good, as Valhalla is an amazing ride.

 

And why isn't Coaster Express/Wild Wild West in that top 3 Woodies?

 

[edit] Well I never, Nemesis is 4th in the best steel coaster award 2005, chuffed with that result, gets me even more hyped up for whoring it tomorrow.

Golden tickets are more based off of pure ridership. So the better rides in remote areas tend to get ignored. It's also why places like Cedar Point clean up on these awards.

 

My top 3 personally goes:

 

1. Thunderhead

2. Hades

3. Balder

For the Golden Tickets, I think they will finish like so:

 

1. Thunderhead

2. Hades

3. Boulder Dash

 

For Mitch's end-of-the-year poll, I'll guess they will finish like so:

 

1. Balder

2. Voyage

3. Thunderhead

 

How I would vote as of today:

1. Thunderhead

2. Boulder Dash

3. hm, tough. Cornball or Rampage or Phoenix. Maybe El Toro will sneak up here next week, who knows?

My top three wooden coasters are:

 

1. Ghostrider

2. Colossus

3. Psyclone.

 

Oh wait, those are the ONLY three woodies I've been on.

 

 

 

Anyway, Balder probably woudln't be on a GP list because most people have probably never heard of it. It is all the way in Sweden, after all.

Where is El Toro?

 

 

My top 3, since I've only been on about 15 total coasters...

 

1) Voyage

2) Hades

3) Tremors, I think... might be Raven which was too short, or Legend. That group is pretty tight.

 

Man, it's really a shame all the good coasters are way out East. Stupid Canada. That's why we're totally building the best coaster ever in Sundre, Alberta. Bonus points to whomever can find it on a map.
