Mitch Hawker's steel roller coaster poll 2013 !


Recommended Posts

Is there any major difference with Green Lantern compared to the other layouts, other than the trains?

 

Layout is pretty similar, with a steeper first drop and slightly taller. I think the four-across train is the biggest differentiator. The "outside" seats give an excellent ride, much more intense than just sitting in the middle above the track. Because the train takes the inversions relatively slowly, the lack of shoulder restraints gives that great "oh crap I'm going to fall out" sensation (like the crawl at the top of a Maurer Söhne Skyloop).

 

So really I guess I'd like to vote for the trains. Is there a best coaster train poll?

Just submitted mine for the first time (never done it before)! Here is my top 10.

 

1. Maverick -- beyond-vertical drop, smooth ride, twists, abrupt airtime, launch, inversions: Maverick has it all

2. Millennium Force -- great drop, awesome speed, floater airtime, and a nice long ride

3. Top Thrill Dragster -- 120 MPH, 420 feet, lap bars only, need I say more?

4. X2 -- insane, just pure insane

5. Full Throttle -- awesome hangtime, great launches, and good positive Gs too

6. Xcelerator -- my favorite launch on any coaster, ever

7. Tatsu -- such a great flying sensation on a beautiful setting atop a mountain

8. Goliath -- excellent positive Gs, a great floater hill, and a nice drop

9. Desperado -- rough, out-of-control feeling with some powerful air at certain points

10. Magnum XL-200 -- same reasons as Desperado, but more rough thus being beneath it

^It also has Grona Lund's "Insane", along with "Favorite Vekoma Corkscrew" and "Ninja - Six Flags Over Georgia." Maybe it's for those who enjoyed the smaller versions more than the bigger versions?!

i305 is #1.

 

I'm not trying to be a hater. Its great to have an accurate coaster poll but......even with idiot's guides, drag and drop ballots etc. etc. this poll can be summed up as "Wall of text hits you for 8000 damage...... you die". Mitch needs to team with a GUI designer and make a easier ballot for everyone. Seems like only about 500 people vote because they open it, start reading the wall of text and decide to not bother. It's an elitist coaster poll because of the low voter numbers, but way more accurate than Golden Ticket and others for sure. I did not bother filling one out last year. I filled them out this year but not while thinking it could be done easier with a proper user interface.

 

So go ahead and flame me. I'm not trying to be a butthole. I just think we can make a better looking Mitch Hawker poll.

If you think that it's such a big deal, ring up Mitch and do it yourself.

 

I for one think that the drag-and-drop ballot creator at Station Brakes is pretty much flawless apart from one coaster here or there that should be separated from a group (and even then, that's not the drag-and-drop ballot creator's problem).

 

To my knowledge, it's much easier to write a script that analyzes plain text than an entire program anyway.

Anyone able to shed some light on why "Favourite Intamin Zacspin" and "Green Lantern: First Flight - Six Flags Magic Mountain" are both listed?

I think it's because that GL:FF carries different weight from other ZacSpins so it operates slower.

I would agree with this. I always wanted to vote in this poll but until that came out I never did because I didn't have the time. Now that we have that tool I always vote.

i305 is #1.

 

I'm not trying to be a hater. Its great to have an accurate coaster poll but......even with idiot's guides, drag and drop ballots etc. etc. this poll can be summed up as "Wall of text hits you for 8000 damage...... you die". Mitch needs to team with a GUI designer and make a easier ballot for everyone. Seems like only about 500 people vote because they open it, start reading the wall of text and decide to not bother. It's an elitist coaster poll because of the low voter numbers, but way more accurate than Golden Ticket and others for sure. I did not bother filling one out last year. I filled them out this year but not while thinking it could be done easier with a proper user interface.

 

So go ahead and flame me. I'm not trying to be a butthole. I just think we can make a better looking Mitch Hawker poll.

 

 

Well, your opinion is valid but gotta be honest, I don't see an issue at all. The drag and drop is intuitive and simple. Maybe I'm that dumb but from our stand point, I have no idea what can be overwhelming about it...

I tried the "original" version before and that WAS difficult and time consuming for me, drag and drop is cake! Besides, isn't the point (kind of a little bit) to be a tad "elitist" to ensure people take it seriously? Better than GTA where we have no idea what they do, and it's clearly reputation/popularity contest.

 

Don't get me wrong, it's not perfect. I don't like how all the Intamin mega lites are individually listed, (they are all the same correct?) and it kind of hogs spaces from other rides, makes sense to me to have "Favorite Intamin Mega Lite" as the option instead. But it's 99% perfect

 

Anyway, ballot filled out!

My top 10:

. M Force

. I 305

. Skyrush

. Maverick

. Storm Runner

. Nitro

. Full Throttle

. Incredible Hulk

. Great Bear

. Kraken

 

Bottom 10:

. Loch Ness Monster

. Iron Dragon

. Skull Mountain

. Space Mountain

. Fav Arrow Mine Train

. Fav Vekoma Boomerang

. Fav Arrow Corkscrew

. Viper (Darien Lake)

. Anaconda

. Vekoma SLC

 

The middle I tried to organize the best I could, but some of them really are just randomly placed by gut instinct

Here's mine.

 

By the way, this is random but does anyone else find ranking Journey to Atlantis against normal coasters almost impossible? It took me forever to figure out where to put it because I love it, but it's really more of a boat ride.
