Phoenix is classy. It only gets the best wood.

16th. Rocky Mountain coasters that placed ahead of it in the wooden coaster rankings were Lightning Rod at #7, and Outlaw Run at #8. I think it's just that not enough people in the voting pool have actually ridden it yet.

LOL! Don't get me wrong it's a great ride, I think this is just very indicative of how which ever rides have the most ridership will fare better than those that haven't. For example Millennium force is my personal number 1, but it's surprising that it still ranks so high, but I think it's mostly because more people have ridden it than other newer coasters.

I find it odd that they don't combine S:ROS at SFA and ROS at SFDL. As well, from I've seen people prefer ROS to S:ROS due to the setting over water vs. a barren field.

You are not looking at the big picture.
Phoenix is helped because some voters could fall into the following mindsets
I don't think these new creations by Intamin and RMC are "true " wood coasters
I have a large frame and Phoenix' buzz bars are very accommodating
My favorite coaster has to be rerideable and some of the newly engineered wood coasters are too intense to re-ride.
As usual, my analysis is free of charge!
