NewsPlusNotes January 2015 Poll Results

This winter can't pass by fast enough if you ask me! Enough of the blowing snow and freezing temperatures... bring on the sun and the new for 2015 coasters! This past month we asked our readers which of the year's new coasters was their most anticipated. And the winner was...

By a landslide.  Just under 46% of all the votes cast in this month's poll went to Fury 325 at Carowinds.  The world's tallest giga coaster now has its track complete, and we're all anxious waiting to see the testing begin!  The park is quickly finishing up the new entrance plaza, which Fury 325 will speed over multiple times - making a gigantic impression on visitors as they start their day.

Our second most anticipated ride goes to Twisted Colossus at Six Flags Magic Mountain, which gathered 13% of the total vote.  A new Rocky Mountain creation, the new steel version of the classic wooden coaster features several inversions and two trips around the structure.

In third place (just over 9%) was Thunderbird at Holiday World, North America's first launched wing coaster.  Finished just a few votes behind Thunderbird was Wicked Cyclone at Six Flags New England, another twisted Rocky Mountain ride.

As you can gather from the full results, there's plenty of other great new rides opening in 2015!  Though Fury 325 absolutely dominated this poll, others like Lagoon's Cannibal and Six Flags Fiesta Texas' Batman The Ride received some love, too.

This month's poll is now live over on the left!
