We do, after all want this poll to be representative of all parks as much as possible, many of which are open year-round, and may have new rides open at any time during the year.

And think about it this way - Have you ever been to the Orlando parks during the holidays? They are INSANE busy filled with hundreds of thousands of people visiting them each day combined. I guarantee you there are people riding Hulk, Mako, Kumba, etc, all for their very first time that would then in turn add them to their ranking for that year.

Same thing is also going on in SoCal. And with parks like Dollywood & Silver Dollar City doing holiday events, you'll have people riding Lightning Rod and Outlaw Run for their very first time in December. Not to mention many European parks and Australian parks are also open.

There's just too many chances to ride GREAT coasters throughout the entirety of the winter that I wouldn't want to shut them out.

Oh, please! This is a *REAL* award system based on actual *REAL* experience! I take the Golden Tickets about as seriously as I take prizes won in a Cracker Jacks box! (is that even still a thing?) :Pr

If we did this for a number of years and had a list of clickable links for the coaster poll results...

2017 Poll Results
2018 Poll Results
2019 Poll Results
2020 Poll Results
2021 Poll Results
etc.....

If someone wanted to see the results from the year Steel Vengeance opened.... they'd click 2018 not 2019, right?

Hmmmm.....


I would click 2018. Your example made me lean more towards using 2018 rather than the latter.

Yeah now I’m second guessing my thoughts.. Like if I wanted to rank Steel Vengeance I’d search for it in the 2018 lineup.

I like 2018 as well. When you see a list like that I think it makes the most sense, and it includes all rides of that year.
