And, yes, I left the coasters relocated from Kentucky Kingdom out of the poll.
We live in metro Atlanta, have season passes to SFOG but are not really too excited about Daredevil dive. We rode "Mystery Mine" at Dollywood a few years back. It was fun, but nothing amazing. DDD will be a nice addition to our home park, and having a Euro-Fighter coaster at SFOG will be a notable distinction.
Texas Giant is tall than all of these, faster than all of these, large and longer, more unique, and with crazy steep drops and twisted turns. Come on guys, Texas Giant will be awesome!
What I don't understand is how "None of these excites me, actually" is commanding second place. I guess there are a lot of people out there who don't like coasters. Honestly, all of these coasters look fun!
Considering that there are not many Euro Fighter coasters in the US, I am interested in seeing how the Dive coaster turns out. I am also interested in seeing how Texas Giant turns out, although it's not really a totally new coaster to me..... so much as a rehab of an old coaster to make it way more awesome hopefully..... but I do think it will be a big deal.
My least interesting one was Green Lantern..... when I saw the announcement for it..... I just did not really care. Maybe the failure of the movie is rubbing off on my perception of the ride a little, but it just does not look like something I would travel to ride. Maybe if it was closer to where I live I'd be more excited (and maybe that is why I am giving SFOG a break? hmmmm.....lol).

Ummmm...the Green Lantern movie hasn't come out yet. Green HORNET has, though. But I'm unaware of any rides based on that film...
Expedition Everest, back when all its narrative parts were working (*sigh*), was a brilliant, immersive coaster that told an excellent and thrilling story. Cheetah Hunt, while amazing looking, is a thrill ride with some nice, decorative touches. Unless there is more to it than I have seen, it is not really in the themed (narrative) ride category. Cheetah Hunt looks more like Manta: pretty, but not much story involved.
I do agree that Cheetah hunts added theming is what is making it appeal to me enough to make me want to go there to see it. And yes, the mountain does make Everest a lot of what it is..... which is probably one of my all time favorite roller coaster experiences.
