Published: November 27, 2009 at 10:41 AMWhile Imagineering and Universal Creative are responsible for designing the basic concepts for their coasters, especially the thematic elements, the coasters themselves are built by established coaster manufacturers: Expedition Everest and Rock and Roller Coaster - Vekoma, Revenge of the Mummy - Premier, Dueling Dragons and Hulk, B&M.

Published: November 27, 2009 at 11:11 AMTrue, I will remember the Universal Creative thing in the future.
Anyway, I voted for B&M because I can name a whole bunch of their roller coaster. Vek gets a no vote from me because of their Deja Vu fail at SFGA and Mack's representative that I have met was not very nice!
I still probably vote for B&M
Published: November 27, 2009 at 12:05 PMI love so many different coasters for so many different reasons. However I have to give my vote to Intamin for setting the gold standard with Millennium Force. I cringe at the day when that coaster is no longer operational. I will agree with the other posters that there were some outstanding hits this year. GCI rocked our socks with Prowler, not to be missed @ night. B&M did not disappoint with both Diamondback and Manta

Published: November 28, 2009 at 12:10 AM[the now bankrupt] Arrow would have my vote solely because of Cedar Point's Magnum. Since S&S purchased Arrow, that's where my vote goes.
Published: November 28, 2009 at 12:15 PMI would like to add Disney's in-house coaster designers. They have created some of my favorite coasters.
I'm also a fan of Arrow. The Loch Ness Monster is still one of my favorites.
