I can't believe Flight of Fear is only at 67. That is one incredible ride.

The poll looks great, I still have hopes Lisebergbanan will climb atleast to top 40 next year. Nice to have an european coaster on the top, the bad thing is that I haven't ridden it.

I'm suprided Nitro is so high and X is so low.

How about because X has had low rider exposure among the general riding public?

Except for the fact this doesn't calculate it that way at all, Kraxle. It's NOT a popularity contest type poll like all the others...it doesn't matter if 4 or 40 people rode X in this poll, with the algorithm Mitch uses, it pits each coaster with each other in head to head competition, not just a simple tally of like Amusement Business.

So in conclustion, no, that is not why X ranked so low in this poll (not that #7 is low, mind you).

Wow, the SROS trio really kicked some booty. SF and Intamin obviously have a winner (x3) on their hands with this Intamin hyper installation.

Is it just me, or is VF's WT the lowest-ranked hypercoaster in America and second-lowest on the planet?

Intmain has the most coasters of all of them that made it in the top 10. Therefore they took it. Sorry if I made it sound like they won all 10 spots.

I was glad to see Kraken finally break the top 10 - I guess I'm not the only one who loves it (and that zero-G)

Also surprised that Nitro was so high again - especially after I got to ride it this year.

SFNE's S:ROS got knocked out of 1st place? wow what a shocker that is,it's great that SFA's took 6th place though.

I was expecting the top 3 to be more like this :S:ROS(SFNE) MF & maybe Nitro but this is a real surprise to see a european steelie take the top spot.

Yeah, and the SFGAm V2 got in above Wicked Twister, too.

I found it interesting that our Deja Vu somehow beat out SFMM's. Shouldn't there just be one "Giant Invertigo" category?
