The Official "TPR Coaster Poll" Thread!


Recommended Posts

With something like Galactica at Alton Towers, should I check it for riding it as AIR before the VR? I'm working under the assumption that the VR isn't part of the ranking but just want to check. My sample size is mostly Korea/Japan but figured it'd fill in a form anyway.

We are counting VR-optional coasters as their originals (no VR). That includes Air / Galactica, Kraken, New Revolution, Space Fantasy, etc.

So.... if I already submitted my rankings and saved them is it too late to make a few adjustments? If not no biggie but I got some credits this weekend I missed last time (Invadr, Ricochet/Apple Zapple, Flight of Fear) as well as some amazing laps on previously ridden coasters that definitely shake up my top 50 a bit and I'd kinda like to update my rankings. TIA

Out of curiosity, will this be a "living" poll with updates on a regular basis? Monthly for example? Or will results be released once a year with data being collected all year? Or something like "you have 2 weeks to update your rankings" and new results are released annually? Just curious what the plan was.

At the bottom of the rankings page, there was an option to make changes and then I believe you just need to hit submit again before the 3/31 deadline.

This is correct. Just click the button to edit, and then click it again to submit. No submission is "final and binding" until we tabulate the rankings for 2017 at the end of this month.

We will be adding new coasters (Twisted Timbers, Time Traveler, et al) on a semi-regular basis in chunks (likely either every 3 months or every 4 months) and letting everyone know when we do, but we will only be generating results once a year.

For the purpose of this beta test, we'd like to keep up "2017 and before" only. We will do another poll that will include the 2018 coasters assuming this one goes well!

When do you plan on closing the poll? I want to make sure I find some time to do the poll. I'll try doing it after work tonight if it's still open then.

Just a heads up, for any of us that did our coaster list early on, make sure to go back as there are probably more coasters listed now that you should add. I was working on my ranking and realized something I wanted to rank in my bottom five was missing and sure enough, there were a bunch of new international parks added since I had done my initial list.

So I was filling out my rankings, and every time I changed something I tapped the save button at the top of the page. Then I remembered a coaster I didn't have on my list, so I searched for it and clicked to add it. Then I went back to my rankings and they were the exact same as I started them. I'm not sure what the problem was, but if that's the case for someone else, it may be an issue. Hopefully it just takes time for the server to change my rankings, and everything is okay.

 

Again, thank you everyone who was involved with making this project.

 

*edit: update. I reloaded and everything was fixed. I didn't waste an hour of my life after all!

I'm assuming you're happy the rumors of Viper's removal turned out to be false?

Wow, this is great - I've been hoping to see an updated list from you guys. Robb, you're next!

 

I'm going to Europe for the first time this summer, and it thrills me to see three of the scheduled coasters make it into your top 6...

 

I agree on everything else (esp. LRod), but I apparently need to ride Storm Chaser again - I heard it's warmed up a bit since 2016. Here's my mine:

 

1. Lightning Rod RMC at Dollywood.

2. Intimidator 305 Intamin at KD.

3. Maverick Intamin at CP.

4. Outlaw Run RMC at SDC.

5. Skyrush Intamin at Hersheypark.

6. El Toro Intamin at SFGAdv.

7. Medusa Steel Coaster RMC at SFM.

8. Phoenix PTC at Knoebels.

9. Mega-Lite Intamin at HVSH.

10. Coaster CarlPhare at Playland.

Hey, just a quick note that the Sea World San Antonio coasters don't work through the search feature -- I think it's because the park abbreviation was changed. Also couldn't get Mystic Timbers on the search either. Working on the rest of my list now.

RMC is really eating into Intamin's market share on your list.

My rankings are done!

 

I already posted my top coasters, but I'll share my bottom 10 as well, worst on top. There's quite a bit of overlap with Elissa'a list...

 

Hades 360 -- The Gravity Group -- Mt. Olympus Water and Theme Park

Bandit -- Roller Coaster Corporation of America -- Movie Park Germany

Condor -- Vekoma Rides Manufacturing -- Walibi Holland

MP-Xpress -- Vekoma Rides Manufacturing -- Movie Park Germany

Soarin' Eagle -- Zamperla -- Scream Zone

Temple of the Night Hawk -- Vekoma Rides Manufacturing -- Phantasialand

Crazy Mine -- Maurer Rides -- Hansa Park

T3 -- Vekoma Rides Manufacturing -- Kentucky Kingdom

Nighthawk -- Vekoma Rides Manufacturing -- Carowinds

Indiana Jones et le Temple du Péril -- Intamin Amusement Rides -- Disneyland Paris - Disneyland Park

 

Dis-honorable mentions to two rides not on the poll: our dearly departed Son of Beast (rest in pieces) and that kiddie Dragon Coaster at Beech Bend that we all thought was going to break apart -- and eventually did.

Alright I have submitted my ballot. Very difficult to judge since some coasters I have ridden recently, while others it's 10+ years since I rode. But I think my top 10 looks something like this:

 

El Toro Intamin at SFGAdv.

Wildfire RMC at Kolmarden.

Storm Runner Intamin at Hersheypark.

Nitro B&M at SFGAdv.

Kumba B&M at BGT.

Phoenix PTC at Knoebels.

Boulder Dash CCI at LakeCompounce.

Montu B&M at BGT.

Katun B&M at Mirabilandia.

Balder Intamin at Liseberg.

 

 

And then my dishonorable bottom 5:

 

Coaster Express RCCA at Parque Warner Madrid.

Super Flight Zamperla at RyePlayland.

Cobra Sartori at TivoliFriheden.

Condor Vekoma at Walibi Holland.

Volare Zamperla at Prater.

10) Skyrush
