Top 20:
1. Favorite Wood Coaster Any Park Anywhere
2. Expedition GeForce Holiday Park
3. Nemesis Alton Towers
4. Kawasemi Tobu Zoo
5. Kumba Busch Gardens Tampa
6. Maverick Cedar Point
7. Intimidator 305 Kings Dominion
8. Montu Busch Gardens Tampa
9. Skyrush Hersheypark
10. Katun Mirabilandia
11. Goliath Walibi Holland
12. iSpeed Mirabilandia
13. Bizarro SF New England
14. Blue Fire Megacoaster Europa Park
15. Space Mountain Disneyland
16. Winjas - Fear Phantasialand
17. Manta SeaWorld Orlando
18. Euro-Mir Europa-Park
19. Shockwave Six Flags Over Texas
20. Phantom's Revenge Kennywood Park

Skip a few...

Bottom 10:
242. Anaconda Kings Dominion
243. Shockwave Kings Dominion
244. Mantis Cedar Point
245. Fav Zamperla Volare Any Park Anywhere
246. Green Lantern:1st Fl. Six Flags Magic Mountain
247. Ultimate Lightwater Valley
248. Sequoia Adventure Gardaland
249. Roller Coaster New York New York
250. Ninja Six Flags Over Georgia
251. Goudurix Parc Asterix

I kind of feel bad for Green Lantern because my ride was horrible, but I know it's not the ride, it's the park the ride is in running it terribly which resulted in my opinion of the ride. I also feel pity for the two coasters in my bottom 10 from Kings Dominion, but they are only there because most other parks have removed their bad Arrow and Togo machines and therefore they're not on the poll this year.
All clear....

Dispatch, enjoy your ride.

Received an email just now:

Your Steel Coaster Poll Ballot Has Been Received and Tabulated

Thank You for participating!

Fewer than 300 people have voted so far. Please encourage others to vote as the results are more accurate when as many people as possible have voted.

The best way to encourage others to vote is via any coaster related message boards or websites to which you may belong. Please post the link rather than posting a ballot as the ballot is subject to change.

Ballots will be accepted through March 31st and results will be posted soon thereafter.

There is a list of known "problems" in the 2013 steel poll ballot at

If you have anything to add to the list you may e-mail it to me.

Thanks Again,

Mitch Hawker

Seems like we need to encourage more people to participate.

1) Favorite Wood Coaster - Any Park Anywhere

2) Bizarro - SFNE
3) Alpengeist - BGW
4) Skyrush - HP
5) Apollos Chariot - BGW
6) I305 - KD
7) Volcano: BC - KD
8) Intimidator - Carowinds
9) Montu - BGT
10) Kraken - SWO
11) SheiKra - BGT
12) Goliath - SFOG
13) Afterburn - Carowinds
14) Griffon - BGW
15) Kumba - BGT

17) Incredible Hulk - IOA
18) Loch Ness Monster - BGW
19) Talon - Dorney
20) Phantoms Revenge - Kennywood
21) Superman:ROS - SFA
A donkey by any other name is just a three letter word
