Echoing Erik's note, I'm thankful for being a part of not one but TWO Steel Vengeance ERT sessions that allowed me to ride in every row multiple times. It has it all. I liked the front seat the best and the wave turn over the brake run and the dive into the structure right before is my favorite part of the ride.
Well done CP and RMC you earned it!
Also thanks to the team who put in the hard work on this project!
There could be a coaster poll for one' s favorite part of SV. First time I bought Fast Lane, it was necessary and worth it.

Is there something different about the ranking algorithm that changes between Overall and Wood/Steel separated?
I already answered this.
The way the wood / steel polls work is that the other steel / wood coasters are completely removed from the poll as if they don't qualify, and THEN the results are re-calculated. This means that a wooden coaster which, in the combined poll, lost because people preferred many steel coasters over it, will suddenly jump in rank now that those steel coasters "don't count" anymore. Voyage jumped 63 (!) places because of this.
I now have strange desire to go to SFA and marathon the second worst coaster in the entire world. Due to the clone rule, I moved all my SLC rankings up to tie with El Toro, but this is not the clone I did that for.
The only part of this poll that baffles me, is the worst wooden coasters.
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.
I'd be interested in top 10 lists for any major manufacturer (particularly GCI, CCI, and Gravity Group) and inverts.
Top 5 Wood- Lightning Rod, Voyage, Phoenix, Boulder Dash, Wildfire Top 5 Steel- Steel Vengeance, Fury 325, Expedition GeForce, Twisted Colossus, Iron Rattler Most Recent Trip Reports- Six Flags Darien Lake & Kings Island
