Group results for our personal favorite top 3 wood coasters poll

This is an unscientific poll, just a poll where folks were asked what their three favorite wooden roller coasters are. Some folks only voted for one or two. We received votes for over forty different coasters which shows the wide variance of favorites. This is not an end all poll, more of a "just for fun" kind of thing. It also leaves out quite a few coasters because it is simply the top three favorites of people.

 I am not sure if you are like me, I enjoy almost every wood coaster because they all have something very different to offer. Here are the results of what we found. Don't forget to vote for your favorite Schmeck vote for the Little Dipper if Yankee Cannonball is your favorite. Also, if you would like to learn more about many of the manufacturers of these top wooden roller coasters through information from interviews with Chris Gray and Tom Boodley of Great Coasters International, Tom Rebbie of PTC and Chad Miller of Gravity Group, be sure to get a copy of our new book, "Great Pennsylvania Amusement Parks.
