I have voted for the Golden Ticket Awards and have never been instructed to vote for any specific ride or park, etc. Contrary to popular belief here, that is not how the Golden Tickets work.

^Maybe not for you personally, but as a previous voting member, I had a different experience.

The Golden Tickets were a fun way to learn about different parks and coasters as a kid, but I would never use them to prioritize parks/rides to visit today.

It's always weird when a roller coaster wins best new attraction but it's not mentioned anywhere in the coaster rankings. Kind of odd.

I vote in the awards every year. To participate, you contact them and send in a simple resume about yourself. Being Canadian (International) might have helped my cause. I have visited around 80 parks with some in Europe. I could have been accepted simply by contacting, who knows? I take them as fun, don’t get butt hurt about the rankings. I do believe they are way better than even a few years ago, maybe due to more enthusiasts like myself participating.
I love that we have a TPR coaster poll to take seriously and the GT for the masses.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Yeah these awards and the Discovery Channel shows really influenced where I wanted to visit when I was younger. Then I discovered the Mitch Hawker Poll.

Polls and Awards and Best Of Lists. Fun for the info, never took any of them as the absolute, be they Oscars, Emmys or Coasters.

I voted for years, but stopped as some of my favorite rides and parks never showed up in the top 10s... so, it just drove home the point of "you like what you like," and having different opinions is ok.

But I especially enjoy seeing my favorites make it in, though! Very happy to see Phoenix (buzz bars) still at #1 and Voyage at #2; not my #1s and #2s, but at that level of awesomeness, it doesn't matter much to me. Those are world-class coasters.

I find it quite odd that Phoenix got best wood. I mean it's a great coaster, just quite odd,

^That one still makes a lot more sense than some of the other rankings. Phoenix is my #2 wood, with my #1 being Wildfire. I don't know how far down the list Wildfire is, but I guarantee it would make me cringe.
