That stood out to me the most. No, it's actually pretty decently maintained. SFGAm's Little Dipper shouldn't be on that list but I definitely chock it's placement along with Zach's Zoomer as simply being the two boring Midwest coasters that folks in the region rank the lowest by default.
It makes somewhat sense, riders get more entertainment out of an uncomfortably rough thrill ride than one with no thrill at all.
It's basically a no-win situation with the kiddie woodies.
It's unlikely that anyone is going to rank them very high, yet if we remove them from the list, people will complain that they aren't there.
Because how do you say "Well, let's include Wooden Warrior and Oscars Wacky Taxi, but not Zach's Zoomer and Little Dipper."
If I was one of those junior woodies I wouldn't take it too personally... and just be happy that I exist in the first place because, at least until recently, that genre of coaster was kind of a dying breed...

Seriously....Zacks zoomer and little dipper made this list? I could think of a hundred other wooden coasters that should be on that list. Zacks zoomer is a kiddy coaster in nowhere Michigan, that is basically a clone of the kiddy wooden coaster at kings island, dominion, and carowinds. It's in no way rough, and it runs just as good as the other clones of it(none of witch made the list). Confused on this one.
Little dipper at six flags? All I can say is seriously??? Out of all the bad wooden coasters in the world, this is one of the worst? This is just my opinion, but kinda odd.
While I actually quite enjoy the old Scooby Doo coasters from the former Taft properties, Zach's Zoomer annihilated my knee caps, so it is very low in my rankings.
They will all be extracted from the combined poll results. We will not be recalculating every single poll to generate these results. If you really think that we should recalculate the poll for each one, then, I don't know, email Dan? Isn't that what we used to tell people to do with their ridiculous requests back in ye olden days?
Let's get the six big ones out of the way right now!
