as ANY coaster enthusiast will tell you the GTA's are a horrible measuring tool. They consistently name the rides where the park gives them the most money/perks.

If you want a true ranking. Besides. The real winner should have been either Skyrush, Leviathan, or X-flight.

That still doesn't change the fact that it won the award.

Yes it doesn't change that. My point is that the award means nothing.

I noticed Dollywood won a lot of categories. I also noticed Dollywood was a sponsor. Strange coincidence?

I'm hoping to make my way to Hershey this weekend, but from my understanding SkyRush has been nicknamed "Thigh Crush" due to its restraints? I hear its a great ride, just the restraints are a bear to many people.

Oh I know. ERT was more than enough of a teacher. By the 3rd ride my leg's were used to it. Since then they have "changed" the restraints. The change being it got more padding. The issue is the restraint should come down on your waist but it's too long and comes down on your thighs.
