You are not the first person to report this problem, we're looking into it.

I'm getting that same error as well.

 

Can't see my full rankings but my top 5 were

 

1. Maverick

2. Steel Vengeance

3. Phoenix

4. Lightning Rod

5. Kumba

 

Maverick is still my #1 but 2 through like 8 are all pretty interchangeable to me.

Thank you to everyone who worked on this poll. For some reason I feel both surprised and not surprised by the results. Either way, there a now a lot of coasters I'm looking forward to now.

 

A couple of questions:

1. Would it be possible to put a link to the results and maybe previous results on the coasterpoll.com website menu or homepage? (Unless I'm blind and it's already there and I can't find it)

2. For fun top lists, might I request "Best wood coasters running PTC trains"?

 

Thank you again to TPR for putting this together. Looking forward to participating again next year!

Here's my top 25, if anyone's curious.

 

1. New Texas Giant (SFOT)

2. Expedition GeForce (Holiday Park)

3. El Toro (SFGrAd)

4. Untamed (Walibi Holland)

5. Twisted Timbers (KD)

6. Maverick (CP)

7. Steel Vengeance (CP)

8. Wildfire (Kolmården)

9. Balder (Liseberg)

10. Goliath (Walibi Holland)

11. Intimidator 305 (KD)

12. Phoenix (Knoebels)

13. Kawasemi (Tobu Zoo)

14. Piraten (Djurs Sommerland)

15. Fly Over Mediterranean (Happy Valley Chengdu)

16. Mega-Lite (Happy Valley Shanghai)

17. Lech Coaster (Legendia)

18. Twisted Colossus (SFMM)

19. Cheetah Hunt (BGTampa)

20, Lightning Run (KK)

21. Schwur des Kärnan (Hansa Park)

22. Skyrush (Hersheypark)

23. Phantom's Revenge (Kennywood)

24. Olympia Looping/Munich Looping (Traveling)

25. Goliath (SFGrAm)

 

Truth be told, the Mega Lites are run about the same to me, so you could say they're tied for 13th place. Millennium Force is number 26, by the way. You can blame Lech Coaster for knocking it out of the top 25.

 

My highest ranked Disney coaster is Big Grizzly Runaway Mine Cars, at number 34.

The biggest surprise for me at a glance has been Comet at Great Escape coming in at #26 wood. Granted, I'm also a pretty big fan based on my mostly-marathoned rides in 2011. Is this a sign that it's held up well since then?

One of the trains was running pretty slow in 2019, but the other ran like its usual self. Great Escape takes really good care of their star attraction.

Thanks for another great poll guys!

 

The biggest surprise to me was seeing Superman: The Ride (SFNE) at #25 Steel, a few ranks below Goliath. I had so much fun on this last trip to Walibi Holland but I definitely think Goliath and Untamed are a tad overrated. Then again, I made some kind of mistake and accidentally left (the wonderful, elegant, expensive) Wildfire off my list this year.

 

BUT, I’m super excited to see Tulireki at the bottom of the list. That thing is awful.

I don't know what Mako people are riding, but it is an absolute injustice that that absolute beast of a hypercoaster doesn't even make it into B&M's top 10 while something like Monster at Walygator Park does. Completely baffling. While there is some other stuff like this, the poll has been remarkably similar to my own rankings. Great job on this whole thing to AJ and the TPR staff!

Not that I have or anything, but have you been on Monster? Comments I've seen describe it as something like Raptor without the hard slam into the brakes and 5-10% extra juice. Sounds pretty good to me.

I think Mako is OK, but nothing all that special.

B&M really just makes too many consistently good coasters. It certainly isn't a bad reflection on Mako.

 

For what it's worth, Monster and Mako are only separated by half a percentage point in terms of comparison wins. In fact, the top 53 coasters, all the way down to Leviathan, achieved win percentages of 90 percent or more. That means that each of those coasters won 90 or more percent of the head-to-head comparisons they were placed in on people's ballots.

I like Mako more every time I ride it. I want to say that it's better than Nitro, but in Nitro's defense we never ride it when it's not laughably below it's minimum temperature limit in December running way slower than it would normally. Conversely, Mako is in Florida.
