    I am also surprised to see Boulder Dash take the number one spot, and El Toro in the number two spot. Both woodies are awesome though.

    Leviathan made a big leap this year. It is now rated number 15, unlike number 22 from last year. I hope it makes it to the top 10 list by next year. Now how on earth is Millennium Force still Number one!?!?!?!?!? It is by far overrated compare to Leviathan!!! I hope one of these days Millennium Force will be outvoted and knocked over from Leviathan, leaving Millennium Force drowning in the Sandusky bay, awaiting to be eaten by its predator!

    Don't get me wrong though, I still like Millennium Force.

    to be completely honest I prefer Millennium over Bizarro. It could be because I have never rode SROS. It could be because I was younger when we went to Cedar Point. I dont know I just like millennium.

    ^You never been on Superman!? If its also been a while since you last ridden Millennium force, you may as well give them both a try and then make up your mind. May even give Leviathan a spin too!

    I now know what your saying! It would at least been more clear if you said you never ridden it as Superman.

    Plain and simple, the Golden Ticket awards are a joke. Maybe not for certain categories, but the way the voting is and everything doesn't give park equal opportunities to win....It's a popularity contest. Not a hardcore which is best contest.

    I think it's hilarious that Outlaw Run AND Iron Rattler beat out Gatekeeper. TAKE THAT CEDAR POINT! But really... Boulder Dash better than El Toro?! HA! That's a laugh, it's not even as good as Voyage, Thunderhead, or Outlaw Run... As for the Millennium Force vs Bizarro battle, I think it's time we accept that we're not gonna have the top spot again unless we get those t-bars back.

    ^ Maybe in your opinion. In my opinion, Voyage has gotten so rough that it will continue to drop just as BD did until LC paid the $$ to get it fixed. Thunderhead won't pass BD unless they have the Con there again. Good ride but not that good. Outlaw Run was too new to win this year. I agree with you on El Toro but I can see how others might like BD better, as the gap between them isn't that big. Our rides on BD this year were the best in many years. LC had BD running top notch just as many voters come thru during the Con.

    Yea that's why I think it won is because Pre-Con was at LC. As for Voyage being a little rough, I like that; my woodies need to have character. And to me, BD is good, but doesn't have airtime. Hence why I have Skyrush placed high on my rankings too, which many people disagree with. I'm fairly skinny so I don't feel the pains of "bad restraints" like larger people might. And Thunderhead is an amazing ride. It's my number 2 wooden. It has speed, airtime, and winding twists and turns which is what a good coaster needs.

    El Toro is basically a a very large out and back with a finale. It's a big but somewhat simply design. Boulderdash is a far more unique coasters. For me Complex and unique design will always win out over size.

    I also Don't think you can blame con since I'm sure a number of ACErs took the time to shoot down the SFGAdv after.

    They also put on a "show" during Pre Con by running 2 trains all day when there wasn't a line. That never happens otherwise!

    Yeah they do occasionally run two trains and the line does not usually get that big. If they run one train and the line is to the arch, they usually throw on the second train. Then after like an hour, there is no line :D
