Yay, now we can finally know how the steel coaster rates as well

 

Tried to do it with the helper, but it's too much of a chore to individually place every coaster in comparison with all the other ones, especially if you have 150+ entries. So I used the text file I got from the helper and did it the old fashion way, in Notepad

 

Arranged it the same way as last year, in groups:

* Top 19 (no. 1-19)

* Great coasters (no. 20)

* Better than average (no. 30)

* OK! (no. 40)

* Meh... (no 50.)

* Bottom 20 (no 51-70)

 

Here are my top 19:

Dodonpa Fujikyu HighLands

Favorite Wood Coaster Any Park Anywhere

Blue Fire Megacoaster Europa Park

Goliath Walibi Holland

Insane Grona Lund

OzIris Parc Asterix

Pyrenees Parque EspaNa

iSpeed Mirabilandia

Nemesis Alton Towers

Katun Mirabilandia

Kawasemi Tobu Zoo

Piraten Djurs Sommerland

Phaethon Gyeongju World

Atlantis Adventure Lotte World

Eejanaika Fujikyu HighLands

Olympia Looping Traveling

Oblivion Alton Towers

Venus Space World

Krake Heide Park

I think someone else mentioned it before. I also do not see New Texas Giant on there as well. I wonder if it is because it is a hybrid, that it is not considered. I do consider it my top steel coaster though.

I emailed Mitch about it.

Thanks for helping get this omittance corrected, Robb! Texas Giant is the main reason I'm so interested in the poll results this year.

I'm using the online helper to generate the ballot and it's generating the wrong order and coasters. Seems to only be an issue with Kings Dominion and Busch Gardens Williamsburg coasters. Just wanted to give people a heads up to double check.

Mitch just mentioned this to me too. I think we'll see a few growing pains in these first couple of days since the poll has been on hiatus for a while, so thank you for your patience and I'm sure he will get everything corrected very soon!

I hope that Skyrush ends up right up there with Intimidator 305, Bizarro and Expedition GeForce. I think that it certainly deserves being in at least the top ten.
