2012 Wood Coaster Poll Results

For a second straight year Six Flags Great Adventure's El Toro has claimed the top spot in the Wood Coaster Poll.  The fan-favorite coaster has been in the top three since it opened, and claimed the top spot without a tie for the first time last year.

El Toro was followed by T-Express at Everland in South Korea, a ride that had previously held the number one spot in 2008, and tied with El Toro in 2010.  Both rides were created by Intamin and are known for their amazing speed, quick direction changes, and most of all air time.

Third place went to Holiday World's The Voyage, a perennial favorite among many ride fans.  Lake Compounce's terrain monster Boulder Dash finished in forth place, and the Phoenix at Knoebels soared into an impressive fifth place finish.
