The 2001 Internet Steel Coaster Poll began accepting ballots on February 1 and will be accepting them until February 28.
Once again the polling algorithm best able to separate ride quality from rider quantity is being used to rate the steel tracked roller coasters that operated worldwide this past season. Results of the 1999 Internet Steel Coaster Poll, ballots for the 2001 poll, past wood poll results and more about the algorithm used for this poll and the annual Internet Wood Poll since 1993 are available at the website.
New for this year are the ability to rank what you love in a roller coaster, from floating airtime to slamming laterals. Also, for the first time, poll respondents also have the option of putting their name on their ballot for display on the website's completed ballots page.
