Mitch Hawker's AWESOME steel roller coaster poll is once again back this year ! Lots of great roller coasters have been built this year, and it's now time to choose your favorites !

Also, remember that every vote counts, no matter if you have been on 5 or 500 coasters !

You can find the instructions here : http://www.ushsho.com/steel_instructions_2013.txt
If it's your first time taking the poll, here's TPR's idiot guide to Mitch Hawker's poll, or you can also try out Jordan's ballot generator which works very well.

The deadline to cast your vote is March 31rst !

Which coaster do you think will end up #1 ?

At last! I'm doing mine right now!
The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

Okay people, remember to be honest now!

No favoring coasters because the park was nice, no hating on coaster because the park was bad. No rating down coasters because you want it below your top coaster and so on....

it would be nice to see a new coaster on top of the list.

Just one thing: I know this may sound ridiculous but given that I've basically only been on 1 family ride (big thunder mountain) should I rank it according to how good it is for its kind or how much I like to ride it compared to the other coasters I've been on? Because that would make a huge difference to me.

No, don't do that.

Yes, do it this way.

Also, I remember that you were 17 years old, did you have a birthday recently?

Here's my top 10, some changes have been made this year!

1. Piraten - still the best in the world for me, nothing else beats it!
2. Expedition Geforce - Not much needs to be said here, amazing ride, but not as strong ejector as the megalite.
3. Insane - One of my absolute favorites, I can marathon this ride 30 times like no other.
4. Speed Monster - I got a new appreciation for it this summer, owning a season pass. It just have everything.
5. Stealth - Best launch in the world, awesome air on the top hat. Otherwise not much.
6. Black Mamba - Awesome ride + awesome theme = world class coaster.
7. Juvelen - the big surprise this year! It's such an amazingly fun ride, and well worthy of it's 7th place.
8. Blue Fire - Although tame, the interesting layout and the amazingly smooth ride with the freedom of the trains make it a top 10.
9. Krake - I'm not a big fan of B&M coasters, but this one is pure fun, along with a gorgeous setting and theme.
10. Jetline - old, powerful and perfect!
No. 1 Water Park guy!

Does anyone else have a problem with many family and jr. coasters not being on the ballot anymore? I know they do get the lowest scores so they would be near the bottom, but why take them out when they are still functioning roller coasters? I find this to be a problem, especially with my home park having a very nice custom jr. coaster, (BomBora.)
