I know that there's the big chart on the website, but here's a quick comparison between 2013's poll and 2012's poll...

Very pleased to see Maverick continue its climb to the top. It looks like it's finally getting the praise it deserves making a statement this year. My 2 highest rated steel coasters finished 5 and 6 in the poll so glad to see them do well and me riding 2 of the best coasters in the world.

Also seeing Bizarro slip a little. I believe this is the first year it's been lower than #3 so that's also a big result. Did anybody notice Diamondback is in the 40s? Also I find it amazing TTD is ranked 18th and KK is 75th. I haven't ridden either but I feel like there's some CP bias there. 1 last thing, I'm not sure where X2 was last year but I feel like it moved up this year being 21st.
The end of an era and the rise of a new one:
#1 overall coaster from 2008-2013: El Toro
#1 overall coaster from 2013-present: Skyrush

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

No kidding, after that night is when Maveshark moved into my top 10.

I love seeing Ntag and Skyrush move up. Also love seeing Iron Rattler up that high.

I remember it was at #25 or something.

I love donkeys more than me.

Interesting Fav Vekoma Boomerang still scores so low - but many have not yet ridden one with Vekoma's new trains featuring the vest-style OTSR which are a BIG improvement.

Looking forward to riding many of the top coasters next year vacationing the US!

TTD is a much more enjoyable ride than KK. Smoother and better restraints but it should not be that much higher than KK.

iSpeed dropped a few spots while losing quite a few match-ups by only a vote. I'm a huge fan of iSpeed and unfortunately couldn't find the time to vote this year. I'll apologize to iSpeed in person next time I'm at the park.

What happened to iSpeed this year? From #8 to #20?


Wing coasters in general are hated by a lot of people here, not just American wing coasters.
"Official" Cedar Fair fanboy!
Favorite Steel: Maverick|Favorite Wood: El Toro, Goliath is close behind|Favorite non-prefab/RMC woodie: Hard to say. Probably Shivering Timbers or Georgia Cyclone
Favorite Flats (in no particular order) - MoA NU Brain Surge, Chance Chaos, Flying Scooters, drop towers
I take a stand against unnecessary neutering of rides. Restore Revolution, Blue Streak, Dorney Thunderhawk, Raging Bull, etc...

What is the reason you say that, being from Australia I'm very interested

Also what is the actual ranking purpose of the poll, I gather it is the coaster that you have the most fun on? Not the coaster that made you scared the most?

Sorry for the newb q's - first time I've heard if this poll

Leviathan at #13 and Millennium Force at #14. I have not been on Leviathan yet and I am surprised it beat Mille per all the reviews offered last year by riders on this site. Any comments from people who have been on both of them? Just curious.
