LAST CHANCE! The Mother of All Coaster Polls

LAST CHANCE! The Mother of All Coaster Polls

Post by Jim and Jerr » Thu, 02 Nov 2000 13:16:28


Since it takes me about 1/2 hour to tabulate the answers to ONE of
your completed polls and since I got back from my week doing the
English Halloween park tour and found my mailbox CRAMMED with polls,
this is your last shot at sending in your answers... I'll accept them
till Sunday, Nov 5. After that, I'll record all the info and post the
results after I get done.

To those who have sent in your answers already, thanks! It's been much
more popular than I thought it would.

OK, here it is.... the Mother of All Coaster Polls.

results and post them around Turkey Day...

If you don't have an opinion on a question, just skip the question...
Also, unless otherwise noted, the poll only pertains to coasters YOU
HAVE RIDDEN and parks YOU HAVE VISITED. Please don't put down an
answer just because it's getting raves on RRC if you haven't actually
experienced it first-hand.

Another note: ANY coaster that you have ridden can be listed under the
"fave/ least fave" questions even if it was torn down long ago...

Speaking of Fave/Least Fave... putting a ride down as "least fave"
doesn't mean you hate it... it just means that of the coasters you've
ridden in that category, it's at the bottom of the list. For example,
if you've only ridden two B&M coasters, your fave of the two and least
fave of the two are obviously on the list, even if you still LOVE your
"least fave".

"Best" and "Worst" however, mean just that. If you still love
something at the bottom of that list, just leave the "worst" question
blank.

Also... as for the definition of COASTER: if YOU think it's a coaster
and want to list it as the answer to a question, that's cool by me. If
your favorite steelie is Journey to Atlantis or Blazing Fury then who
am I to tell you your answer isn't going to count?
