Apparently Six Flags is doing a contest of their rides on their Facebook page every week where you vote for a different coaster to find the "Holy Rail."

This is a link to the video. If I doesn't work on your computer then you can visit their general Facebook page.

 

Looks interesting. Can't wait to see the coasters that win.

Exactly. There's even been articles in the montreal news touting la ronde as the tallest woodie in the world: http://www.leaderpost.com/travel/Monstre+running+best+roller+coaster+poll/1835630/story.html (wtf?)

 

The Monster is billed as the highest wooden roller coaster in the world.

 

so yeah. We really need to at least keep it reasonable.

No. It's not that great. But you know, gotta show some love to the first woody I have ever been on. I am VERY surprised that it actually is ahead by 16%. I guess the whole Province of Quebec is on Facebook.

 

And BTW, I am really surprised that The Gazette (main English newspaper in Montreal) is stating that it is the highest wooden coaster in the world. However, in Le Journal de Montréal (The most read newspaper in Montreal) it was clearly stated that it was the tallest double track wooden roller coaster.

They are competing in the tournament with a wooden roller coaster (El Toro) that is taller.

Looking at the Facebook comments, even the general public thinks El Toro should be winning.

 

Watch the South Park episode with the French Canadians again. That'll probably explain it.

Honestly, I feel Goliath at La Ronde should have been in this poll instead of Le Monstre.

 

As for Tatsu losing to Raging Bull. Keep in mind that a large majority of the votes are from the general public that vote for their home park. A lot of Chicago locals voted Raging Bull and still think of it as a good ride without really knowing or caring about a ride across the country that is considered better in the enthusiast community.
