Fifth Annual TTF Euro Coaster Poll 2011-12
You thought it would never come... but it is finally here - and better than ever.
Following some hard work from Chris with the technical side of things, I am now grouping coasters into their sets for the 2011-12 Poll which will be the fifth year of action and hopefully the biggest yet!
This year, in order to make voting fairer and more transparant, voters will asked to place the rides in rank order!
I will be revealing the complete list of 100 coasters on or before Sunday, 4th December. This will then be an opportunity for you to view the list, and check of any anomalies before the fun begins on Sunday, 11th December.
This year, due to the late starting of the poll, and Alton Towers' February opening being earlier than usual, it is likely to run into March 2012.
Without sounding like a moaner, in order to save me time, the voting threads for each of these earlier rounds will now only feature the ride name, model type and manufacturer and a link to the RCDB page for that ride. You would not believe how long it actually has taken to arrange links, photos and video onto the forum for each of the 100 coasters. Especially in my job, I just can't spend hours on each group like I once did. Therefore, this year - the onus will be on YOU to make yourself more aware of the rides. You will especially need to do this because every ride will be ranked in order! Voting for the 'one you have heard of' is a thing of the past!
I am really looking forward to this years poll, hopefully it'll give us a far better representation of what TTF really think of Europe's finest - and with the likes of Ben 10, Dizz, Die Schlange von Midgard, Freishutz, Shock: The Steam Machine, Krake, Max Adventures Master Thai, Raptor, Skatteoen, Timber Drop, Twister and Vicky The Ride ALL debuting in Europe this year, it could be a year of big changes.
The 100 rollercoasters will once again be sourced based on performance in the most recent Mitch Hawker Poll. Then, the new coasters above (if I have missed any, please let me know) will be added in. In the event of a coaster being too low in the Hawker Poll to qualify, yet it finished inside the top 20 on last years TTF Poll - it will be included (hey, Space Mountain Mission 2 fans, I am talking about you here!).
If you any questions, please post inside this thread OR send me a private message!
Can Black Mamba hold on...
