Damn. Has Hades 360 really gotten that rough? I've never ridden but I would infer that its insanely low ranking in recent years would stem from that, as on paper its probably a good coaster. But perhaps yet another example of how cumbersome it is too maintain a traditionally built woodie of that magnitude a la Voyage...

But anyways,

top 25

El Toro Intamin Six Flags Great Adventure 1
Maverick Intamin Cedar Point 2
Voyage GG Holiday World 3
Skyrush Intamin Hersheypark 4
Beast Dinn Kings Island 5
Top Thrill Dragster Intamin Cedar Point 6
Millennium Force Intamin Cedar Point 7
Diamondback B&M Kings Island 8
Nitro B&M Six Flags Great Adventure 9
Lightning Racer GCI Hersheypark 10
Mystic Timbers GCI Kings Island 11
Legend CCI Holiday World 12
Storm Runner Intamin Hersheypark 13
Incredicoaster (California Screamin') Intamin Disney California Adventure 14
Fahrenheit Intamin Hersheypark 15
Kingda Ka Intamin Six Flags Great Adventure 16
Magnum XL-200 Arrow Cedar Point 17
Bizarro B&M Six Flags Great Adventure 18
Flight of Fear Premier Kings Island 19
Raven CCI Holiday World 20
Banshee B&M Kings Island 21
Space Mountain DynamicAttractions Disneyland 22
Rougarou B&M Cedar Point 23
Wicked Twister Intamin Cedar Point 25
Matterhorn Bobsleds Arrow Disneyland

Love the list, felt like quite a wait but its pretty sweet! Noticed there may be an error, or maybe its intended due to how some coasters are wood or ateel but on the overall top 25 and the steel 25, one of them millennium force is > twisted colossus and then on the other its twisted> millennium force. If this is wrong seems like a lot of other parts may be messed up to so I just wanted to inform you.
Thanks for the hard work put into making this nonetheless!

Edit: was answered before actually so disregard, will leave this though is thinking the same thing.

Mennoo_ wrote:Something feels off in the results list in the first post. The overall list does not match the top25 lists with only steel or wooden coasters. for example, int he overal list the mega-lites are at place 25 under Taron, but at the top25 steel coasters the mega-lites are at #7 far above Taron. The same ist he case for Outlaw run. Better check the lists again.

This is now the third time I've addressed this!

The poll is working as designed. It's based on preferences, or, whether you prefer coaster A over coaster B. When you eliminate a subset of coasters for the wooden-only and steel-only polls, a lot of coasters that would have been preferred over other coasters are now gone from the poll. We remove the coasters, and THEN recalculate the results based on the new set. This means that certain coasters may have large jumps and / or falls in the rankings. For example, Boulder Dash is higher than Voyage in the combined rankings, but Voyage is higher than Boulder Dash on the wooden-only rankings.

It's not as straightforward as "take the coasters off of the combined results and re-number them" - we're basically calculating results for three coaster polls at once. The wooden-only and steel-only polls are calculated as if the other type of roller coaster never existed in the first place.

^Fair enough. I know this probably shouldn't be something that I let affect my ratings, but screw it since they're mine, I always end up putting Kawasemi a little higher than one or two rides I think are maybe better because this is probably the best roller-coaster on my list that never has a line.

There are some rides I love but after a couple of awesome rides but being stuck in a long cattle-pen or out in the hot sun, I end up passing because I'm kind of done. Kawasemi is probably the only in my top 10 where I can basically run around, marathon and still be smiling and feeling fresh until I'm done.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

^
I have a question: Under the worst costers overall, Anaconda ist the wooden one with the lowest number ("the worst"), but under the worst wooden coasters, there's Bandit still worse than Anaconda. How do I have to interpret that? How can it be a badder wooden coaster, but is not worse in overall?
