^That doesn't surprise me, I'd say about two weeks after the beginning of the poll Mitch sent an e-mail to say there was less than 300 persons who voted. I'm sure this is to allow more peoples to vote and have more accurate results.

Oh, maybe now I'll have time to work on my ballot. Wasn't going to take time out of the Japan trip to do it!

More time is always better, though that ruins my theory that they must've had a good turnout because they didn't extend the deadline this time (not saying it's a definite that the turnout was poor). Now get those ballots in!

Last call for ballots, guys! (I'm assuming there's at least an hour or two left to send 'em in.)

^HA!!! Love it!

And guess what...I never even did a ballot!

Looks like the Intamin love and respect is strong even without me championing the cause!

'Favorite Wood Coaster' would have finished #1 this year if it were included in the official results, losing no mutual rider
comparisons. The only blemish was a 25 to 25 tie given by the generally less experienced riders (see below) of #8 'Shambhala'.


This is 2 years in a row now right? If you factor this in it makes RMC and Intamin look even better. Not only are their rides taking up the majority of the top spots in the steel coaster poll but we can safely assume that El Toro and Outlaw Run are actually ranked even higher than their other coasters given the wood coaster results which were almost a first place tie.
