Who desides on getting coasters?

I was thinking who decides on getting a major coasters at any type of park? Is it the park, company or what guests want to see at a park? Who makes the final decisions?

I wish it was the guests, but I am not sure.

Nitro: The Most Explosive Coaster on the Planet explodes at Six Flags Great Adventure in 2001.

Every company is different, and it depends entirely on what demographics they want to serve. Look at Cedar Point's last few years, for example. One year they build Camp Snoopy and Woodstock Express, because families collectively spend more money on admission, food, etc. It's a good business decision.

Then they'll build big rides like Millennium Force or Power Tower because they capture the imaginations of the thrill seekers.

Good business to me is just making sure you have all of your bases covered and you're serving a wide variety of guests.
