Wow, only 2 nominees outside of Disney/Universal.

I hadn't even thought to nominate Soap Box Racers. That was my first coaster! I'm happy with those nominees, just wish the Orient Express had made the list. It probably would have lost in the first round, but you can't blame the KC folk for trying.

I guess I was the only one who nominated Ghostbusters and Hanna-Barbera:(. I should've nominated the Chiller.

Attractions pretty much needed double-digit nominations to make the field. I thought about going with a 32-entry tournament, adding another round, but the seeds between 22 and 32 got pretty lame, so I decided this time to go with the stronger top-to-bottom field and limit it to 16.

Danny, I nominated Ghostbusters too so ur not alone there. But everything else i nominated got in mostly. Im happy that Drachen Fire got in to represent virginia.

I should have gone with the newly-dead Racer - backwards car at Kings Island near Cincinnati (my first favorite coaster; I was afraid of the Beast the first few years I rode it as a kid).
