Very interesting! Most of us who have ridden Medusa Steel Coaster love the crap out of it, but how many honestly expected it to be the #1 steel? I bet very few. Great to see it there regardless. Very happy my #1, Skyrush, made top 10 on both the steel and overall lists considering how polarizing it is on here. I frankly expected one of the RMCs to finally topple El Toro from its perch, but it's still holding strong!
A question for Chase, Robb, or others involved: How does one coaster rank ahead of another on the wood or steel-only list, yet rank behind it on the combined list? For example, Balder at #15 is ahead of Boulder Dash at #18 on the combined list, yet BD at #6 moves ahead of Balder at #7 on the wood list. Am I correct to interpret this as Balder comparing more favorably than BD to a majority of steel coasters even though BD scores better when only comparing wooden?
Thanks for compiling this! El Toro was the only thing stopping RMC from having the entire top 5. That says a lot about RMC. I remember the Mexico TPR trip raving about how awesome Medusa was, but I'm still stunned to see it beat other steel stalwarts like Intimidator 305 or Expedition GeForce. This is definitely something that wouldn't have happened in the Golden Ticket Awards, so that's one reason why I really appreciate this poll being run.

I actually thought Wolverine Wildcat was a reasonably smooth coaster with some good air. Then again I thought the same thing about Wild Beast.
Top 5 Wood- Lightning Rod, Phoenix, Boulder Dash, Wildfire, Outlaw Run Top 5 Steel- Steel Vengeance, Twisted Colossus, Expedition GeForce, Iron Rattler, Fury 325 Most Recent Trip Reports- Disneyland & Scandia
Excellent results! The top 25 lists look like I would expect them to; the ones I've been on definitely deserve to be there, amd the ones I haven't I hear others rave about. RMC and Intamin both highly represented...checks out.
