Anyone who doesn't have El Toro, Balder, or Voyage on their list most likely has a mental disease.

 

Well, at least I'm sane, then.

 

Let's try to not take ourselves too seriously, everyone.

I guess I must have a mental disease, because I don't have El Toro on my list. Then again, I haven't ridden it.

 

For the record, I have Balder and Voyage ranked at #13 & #15 respectively.

To be fair, there probably is some sort of DSM-IV disorder associated with people who have traveled to Santa Claus, Gothenburg, and Jackson just to ride roller coasters.

Sent my poll in, my method is very labourious, I cut out all the coasters I haven't ridden then move them around into rough groupings and then line them up in order and finally number them from first to last.

 

Here's what's was hot and what was rougher than dropping the soap in the maximum security prison showers:

 

1. Balder - Liseberg

2. Boulder Dash - Lake Compounce

3. Phoenix - Knoebel's

4. El Toro - SFGAd

5. My Favorite Steel (Piraten/SFNE SROS)

6. Ravine Flyer II - Waldameer

7. Hades - Mount Olympus

8. Thunderhead - Dollywood

9. Raven - Holiday World

10. Cornball Express - Indiana Beach

11. Rampage - Alabama Adventure

12. The Voyage - Holiday World

 

And scraping the bottom of the barrel, they punished me so I punish them on the poll, rated by degree of physical harm:

 

73. GhostRider - Knott's Berry Farm

74. Cyclone - SF New England

75. Son of Beast (SBNO) - Kings Island

76. Hurler - Kings Dominion

77. Racer - Kings Island

78. Predator - Darien Lake

79. Wildcat - Lake Compounce

80. The Grizzly - Kings Dominion

81. Hurler - Carowinds

Oh, well . . .

 

Woo hoo! Bwa-ha-ha-ha-ha! Boogie boogie boogie! Boi-i-i-i-i-i-ng! Beedybeedybeedybeedybeedy . . .

Even though I've only ridden a handful of wooden coasters, I still voted.

 

Good. The beauty of Mitch's system is that "less informed" votes still help the accuracy of this poll rather than detract from it.

 

/Don't care if you've only ridden two. Still vote.

I got one of my friends to do this poll and they had only been on two, but like already mentioned, every opinion counts!
