A Non-biased Coaster Poll, Not for the Faint-Hearted Fan Boy
It’s the time of the year again for Mitch Hawker’s Roller Coaster Polls. The polls are lengthy and complicated enough that Robb Alvey from ThemeParkReview.com created an Idiot’s Guide. Hopefully, the amount of time and effort it takes will weed out the blind homers and fan boys that just want to vote for their home park’s coasters.
Like last year, I’ll report on the results and compare to them to the Golden Ticket Awards. Mitch’s Poll is generally regarded as a more fair poll than Amusement Today’s Golden Ticket Awards largely because of the head-to-head, win-loss, nature of the poll. Explained here.
