Published: May 25, 2007 at 11:29 AMEl Torro is a no-brainer. Easily the best new attraction. If you haven't had the chance to ride it, it's worth a trip up to New Jersey (along with Kingda Ka and Nitro).
Published: May 25, 2007 at 12:24 PMWhy is El Toro on this poll if it opened last year? Didnt it open before June?
And Maverick opens tomorrow, so that needs to be added!
Published: May 25, 2007 at 3:48 PMNope. El Toro actually opened mid-June. So it is eligible.
And as I mentioned to someone in an e-mail earlier today: I ain't jinxing Maverick. When the first train leaves the station (and comes back!), *then* I'll add it.
You can write it in in the meantime, though.
Published: May 25, 2007 at 3:56 PMIf you go on the cp blog that will tell you that the ride is all ready to go becuase the park manager and and important staff members rode it today and Maverick was all in check.

Published: May 26, 2007 at 8:33 AMI'm voting for Maverick right now on the basis that, not only does it have decent theming, which most coasters on the list lack, but also that they invented a totally new inversion specifically for this ride. So not only did Cedar Point work their magic again and come up with another world class coaster, but they also brought something fresh to the world of coasters.
Published: May 26, 2007 at 9:28 AMim gonna have to say Maverick and, I totally agree with Dustin.
Published: May 26, 2007 at 10:13 AMFWIW, Kings Island's Firehawk is not on the list because it was previously open at Geauga Lake, so it is not a "new" attraction.
Published: May 26, 2007 at 9:04 PMWell I have to say Journy to Atlantis......it's the only one I've ridden :D Anyone been on the Busch Gardens ride?
Published: May 28, 2007 at 3:41 PMHow come no mention of Renegade at ValleyFair??
Published: May 28, 2007 at 3:25 PMAnother vote for Renegade at Valleyfair!
Published: May 28, 2007 at 5:05 PMI haven't been on all of these new attractions, but after riding El Toro last month, I find it hard to believe that any of them could top it. Griffon is excellent too, and I'm looking forward to Mystery Mine.
Published: May 29, 2007 at 6:40 PMGriffon is the best one that I have ever ridden. I haven't been to all the parks listed, but Griffon is my favorite of all coasters. :)
