Six Flags New England's Superman: Ride of Steel is the top steel coaster in North America, Expedition GeForce of Germany's Holiday Park took the top spot for the rest of the world. Unfortunately, only four people who had ridden the German ride took the poll, and they only had enough experience for a comparison to be made to about one third of the top 30 rides.
Cedar Point's Millennium Force and Six Flags Great Adventure's Nitro round out the top 4. Alton Towers' Nemesis placed 5th, 1999 #1 Six Flags Darien Lake's Superman - Ride of Steel, and Busch Gardens Williamsburg's Apollo's Chariot tied for 6th.
The Favorite Wood Coaster category finished third, with people preferring #1 Superman: Ride of Steel to their favorite wood coaster 15 to 10 with 3 people rating them as equal.
