Still hope everyday SEAS sells BGW and BGT so they can focus on becoming Six Flags+ AnimalsMaybe this will be a boot in BGW's ass to bring back some aesthetic to the park. Everything done in the past 5 years has just made the park look worse and worse. Hell could go back more than 5 years.
Doubt it though.
If I got to travel a bit more, I'm not sure it would fall on my top 10. Mako is better than it IMO and it's not on the list eitherAnyone notice that Apollo is not in the top 10 either? I haven't been paying attention to the GT Awards for a few years. Is this new? Last I knew it kept bouncing between 4 and 7.
Candymonium is similar to Apollo's Chariot in that it looks quite majestic in the park, but in terms of ride experience there are better rides in the park. I have a hard time with it being the 5th best steel coaster overall, when I'd probably rank it the 4th or 5th best steel coaster in Hershey's itself.^How Candymonium gets up there but Mako does not makes no sense to me. I have yet to hit Candymonium but it just seems like Mako is better. Also Mako is amazing. I love that ride and wish it was here lol.
This is several years too late. I would throw phantasialand, epcot, silver dollar, and liseberg in as other contenders but the international ones probably dont have enough recognition.
It also might be worth noting how attendance caps might have played a part in this. Someone can correctly me if I am wrong but I believe Dollywood had a higher capacity and was able to use their whole park both having few guest and cutting the park in half probably didn't help BGW.From what I understand, the winners are determined by a tally vote so it's ultimately a meaningless popularity contest, someone correct me if I'm wrong. BGW did seem to take a lot of pride in the award though, so maybe losing it will inspire something in them.
Would also like to point out that Velocicoaster bested Candymonium for 'Best New Coaster of 2020/21,' and yet Candymonium is #5 on the steel list while Velocicoaster is #18. And that Knotts Berry Farm was runner up for 'Best Halloween Event of 2020' despite being closed and not having a Halloween event in 2020.
