NewsPlusNotes January 2016 Poll Results

January is the month each year we ask our readers which of the new U.S. roller coasters is their most anticipated.  It's always fun to see the latest scream machines that you guys just cannot wait to ride, and this year you made yourselves quite clear.

In the number one spot in our poll, with a dominating 40% overall, is Lightning Rod at Dollywood.  The new Rocky Mountain launched wooden coaster looks more amazing in each new photo that is released, and seen above, the park recently revealed the great looking trains for the ride.  Between the crazy elements and imposing structure, I'm not surprised Lightning Rod came out on top.

Our number two finisher was the Phobia Phear Coaster at Lake Compounce, a brand new Premier Rides launched attraction with 18.5%.  In third, with 17.4% was Valravn, Cedar Point's new B&M dive coaster.  Here are the full results:

SeaWorld Orlando's Mako finished in 4th place, followed by a tie for 5th place between Six Flags Great Adventure's Joker (formerly Total Mayhem) and the Joker at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom.

This month's poll, a rather silly one that's just for fun, is now live over on the left!
