most people that have voted yes are the general public that dont really know anything about the safety coaster munfacturers put into making rides.

Look at the question asked? Bait for the yes voters.

Regulate Amusement Parks As Tightly As Traveling Carnivals?

But really though, what difference does this poll make? It is the very definition of unscientific. Just a bunch of people, who likely care deeply about the subject, going out of their way to vote. This is not a true representation of the will of the American People.

Besides, regulation actually sounds good. But as the American people would they rather see 500,000 dollars spent on ride saftey or education. I'd give 20 to 1 odds I could guess which would win out ;)

DejaVu & V2: What could it hurt?

How about coasters that can only go so fast or coasters that can only be so high?

Once regulations start, they tend to snowball. I don't want to see designers stopped or rides changed by regulations because a ride can't be over x number of feet tall or can't go over x mph.

Regulators put the guise of "safety" over it when it's public opinion they're really concerned with. Public opinion = votes.

Yeah, CoasterBuzz!! Who says we can't make a difference?!

Wow... the members really have made a difference. I find the wording of the question amazing and even somewhat appauling. If they're going to have a poll like this, they need to state the question in a way that doesn't bias the uneducated reader. Oh well, we're winning anyway.

Luckily, the designers are already doing a GREAT job not having to go higher and faster to get us good thrills. Look at X, X-Flight, S:UE, the Deja Vu's, these aren't all 700 ft. and they deliver top notch thrills!
