Wow, that is an amazing top 7! Yay for NTAG moving up even with 1 less rider this year.

Can't wait to ride #1 in June!

^I prefer MF slightly, but they are both kinda spreadout and forcless. Night ERT on MF was a lot of fun this year though and the drop and last 2 airhills made up for it.

The results are great! Glad to see some respectable coasters moving up and others shifting out

Thanks to Mitch for all his effort as well, Kudos to you!

Anyone find the irony in Ntag moving up after last years incident? This thing kills people, best ride ever.

Shambalha is my favorite coaster since I rode it

Interesting results. Also surprised to see shambhala holding up in the top ten. I rode it last week and though it was much better than my first ride in July 2012, so I'll rank it higher next year (wasn't in my top 10 this year, actually). I wonder what happened to Ispeed.
By the way, how were the wing coasters in general? (I know gatekeeper was 108 but that's all)
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.

I find it interesting that i305 was voted as the best giga coaster. The thing that separates it apart from the others is the intensity of those insane twisties. Stays low to the ground, and you black out. Not a very much airtime either. A little floater, and a little ejector. Maybe Six Flags should take a hint and start installing giga's! The 3 in the US made the top 15. That means good news for carowinds fans!

Also, where the heck are all those B&M hypers?! Apollo's? Diamondback? Intimidator? They always make it into the top 15! Now the best is nitro at 24. But still, thats crazy.

3 Mega-lites in the top 20! wow! Pay attention US parks! I'm talking to you! Go do some good and go over to intamin and install a bunch here in the united states!

Same. :(

I'm happy to see Gatekeeper at #108, it deserved it! It's by far the shakiest and most unpleasant B&M I've been on! Also love to see Maverick go up a little, that was #1 on my ballot.

I'm quite surprised however about the Volares beeing the worst above Goudurix! They really are awful, but I tough Goudurix would continue its dead last reign until its destruction!
Favorites :
Steel : Maverick, Wicked Cyclone, Superman: the ride (SFNE)
Wood : El Toro, Phoenix, Lightning Racers
Total coaster count : 134

Well, the highest ranked B&M is a hyper, but it's not in the us.
