I think if I own a park, I would just have Intamin. It always seems like both there steel and wooden coasters are always in top ten lists. Congrats to El Toro. I can't wait till I get to ride ya on the New Hotness Tour.

I have been on 1 and 5. For some reason, I have always prefered Phoenix over El Toro, probably because I have kind of held a grudge with Great Adventure since my first visit. Hope to ride Ravine Flyer II next summer.

 

My dream is for Intamin to build a showcase park like Europa to Mack. if the park had an onsite hotel, my reservation would sound something like this:

Me: Hello, I would like 23,725 nights in your hotel, please.

Operator: Ok, that is $2,847,000. Would you like to pay that off over time?

Me: Yes, please

(Operator hangs up phone) That's the 14th time today someone has asked for that many rooms! Should we just make this an apartment complex?

I just realized you can find the full list by downloading the Mutual Rider Spreadsheet. Ignore the confusing stuff (if it confuses you, as it does me, that is) and there you have it.

 

It appears I've been on 26 of the top 50 woodies. I'll rule this a good thing.

Also been on 5 of the top 6 (minus T-Express) so I'm pretty happy with that! I think Boulder Dash is by far the best wooden coaster but overall I am very happy with the rankings! I think people got it right for the most part

 

Need to get overseas though!!!

Looks like he finally stopped ranking SBNO coasters, although I think Dania Beach Hurricane should have been ranked this year since it ran up until April (if memory serves me correctly). And if there were any other SBNO coasters than ran during 2011, I think they should have been included, as well. But that's just my humble opinion.

Is it a mistake that Leap the Dips was included with the SBNO coasters? Or did it collapse when I wasn't looking?

 

Also, it looks like Son of Beast would've been the last place coaster, if it had been included. For me it's a toss up between it and Bandit.

 

EDIT: Nevermind, Leap the Dips got corrected.

hahahhaha love it!

 

I've only ridden one coaster in the top 10.... and that one I've ridden is #1!!! So stoked! I'm so glad I had a chance to ride it.

^Agreed. Although people are entitled to their own opinion, I don't see how anyone who has ridden Balder can prefer Voyage. But many people taking the poll haven't ridden Balder.

I've been on #1,2,3,4,5, but NOT #6,7,8,9,10. Weird.

 

Phoenix is my favorite, glad to see that it continues to rank so highly. Just a very very FUN coaster! Love El Toro too, I actually think it's quite a bit better than T-Express (although T-Express is still my #3). What's remarkable is that as amazing as the Intamin woodies are, there is still room for improvement.
