Shivering Timbers takes top spot in popular wood coaster poll

Posted Monday, December 2, 2002 3:43 AM | Contributed by Darth Saambe

Mitch Hawker has posted the results of his wooden coaster poll. The poll uses an algorithm that intends to separate ride quality from rider quantity, so the sheer number of riders for a particular coaster doesn't weight the results. Shivering Timbers at Michigan's Adventure has again claimed the top spot, displacing Tonnerre de Zeus, which slid all the way to 10.

I had a #1 after Cornball on MY ballot, so don't blame me Gator! Cornball is in a 4-way tie for #1 with Legend, Raven, and Shivering Timbers.

'I sort of thought Shivering Timbers was running worse this year than I'd recalled.'

You're not the only one. I found ST to be 'ultra-mega ok' this year. It fell from my top ten down into the twenties somewhere, as I try to vote based on my last ride.

In fact, after weeks of calling Moosh and Gator ST haters, I had to take back my words and agree with them that ST had, in fact, fallen off.

'I am forced to wonder WHAT Cornball *the other voters* are riding'

Your guess is as good as mine. I had it at #2 after the PNE Coaster, and ahead of Legend, Raven, Phoenix, Tremors, Ghostrider, etc.

Hell if I know! Cornball fell right in my #2 spot the moment my first ride ended. Frankly it might as well be tied for #1 with Raven.

Blame me, first time I voted. All my rides on ST have been Grrrrrrrrreat. Plus it is in my state of birth. Kara, your check bounced, could you send another? ;) Corny is down at 3 behind Legend and alongside GR (a sentimental ranking on my part based on its best performances). Son of Mr. Hanky is the most FUN (no relation to the stock) ride I can think of, to bad IB is not open for Hanky season.

Put me down as another Cornball-lovin' fool. I had it as my #4 wood, behind Phoenix, Legend, and Raven (in order), and just ahead of Grand National, CI Cyclone, Georgia Cyclone, Megaphobia, Knoebels Twister, and KW Thunderbolt to round out my top 10. I realize that's probably a weird ranking to some people (Knoebels Twister so high, for example, but I had a BLAST on it at PPP this year!)

Unfortunately, no -- I spent a few hours sitting in the "Encounters" restaraunt, plane-watching (an activity I highly recommend to anyone with a long layover)
