^ yeah, thats what I was referring to. Good job to shabhala, accurate rating. But still, interesting that they're well ranked in the Golden Ticket Awards, but they're not as high in this.

For me, and this may be an unpopular opinion, but I really think Bizarro at SFNE should be lower on the list. It's a great ride, don't get me wrong, but it surely doesn't trump Millennium Force or Shambhala. I even get more "giddy school-girl giggles" excitement out of Nitro. Who knows.

IMO a Boomerang is a Boomerang. Sure the new trains help but a "BIG improvement" is taking a nearly unrideable coaster like Texas Giant and transforming it.

New trains oh a Boomerang? Meh... Pretty much the same experience... But slightly more comfortable.

^Agreed. When you get down to it, it's still just a Boomerang.

I disagree, Bizarro has the best of both worlds. Crazy airtime and Awesome G force. I think the layout is better than MF. I thought MF was great but lacking in airtime.

This poll is much better than golden ticket IMO.

Fair point. Although the change from S:ROS to Bizarro has never sat right with me. If they were to change it back, then it would fair slightly better with me.

Not disappointed with the results, but disappointed that I haven't ridden a lot more of these Top Ten coasters!

What strikes me about the results is the sheer volume of decent steel coasters around. Even beyond the top 10, the top 100 or so are all really solid rides.

Yay NTAG, Maverick and iRat! A little surprised to see X2 at 21; the bump from last year may be modest, but it's the best ranking it's had in years. I noticed plenty of other changes, mostly in the middle rankings, that looked significant enough to be interesting, but I suppose it could just be the different comparisons or voter opinions from year to year.

I'm relieved that iRat debuted in the top 10. I'd heard descriptions ranging from awesome and in some cases stronger than NTAG, to tamer than expected. I think I like it a bit more than NTAG.

Was I really the only one who voted Rainier Rush?
