NewsPlusNotes June 2015 Poll Results

© Busch Gardens Williamsburg
June 2015's NewsPlusNotes Poll asked our readers which was their favorite North American six inversion roller coaster - a bit of a loopy poll, you could say.

The votes were quite close for much of the month, but in the end Alpengeist at Busch Gardens Williamsburg came out in the number one spot with 21% of the total votes.  The intense B&M inverted ride had our number two finisher on its heels, and that was Cedar Point's Raptor, which had 19% of the votes.

3rd place went to yet another B&M inverted ride, this time Afterburn at Carowinds.  Seems those B&M inverts are still quite popular all these years later!  4th place went to GateKeeper at Cedar Point, one of B&M's wing coasters.  Here are the full results:

As you can gather from the votes above, Riddler's Revenge at Six Flags Magic Mountain had the fewest, probably reflective of the low popularity of stand-up coasters.

So many months we focus on which coaster of some variety is our reader's favorite, but what about the companies that are behind these rides?  That's the focus of this month's poll, check it out and vote over on the left!
