Mitch Hawker Polls 2012-2013


Mar 17, 2011
Cambridgeshire, UK
I kinda expected there to be a thread about this, but for those who may have missed it, this years steel coaster poll has been up for a while, and closes in a few weeks. The Mitch Hawker poll allows users to vote for their favorite rides through the process of ranking them in order, and uses a unique head-to-head system to combat the coasters with the most riders winning out. It's definitely worth submitting your favorites, and would be cool to see what others place as theirs.

Remember, if a ride you've ridden does not appear than it may appear under a 'Fav...' category. If two rides appear under the same category (eg. two Vekoma Boomerangs) then it should be ranked with the highest one. Only rank those you've ridden, and place a tick in those you've ridden this year.
