Because it is a RMC vs Intamin poll.

Alan Schilke is a crazed madman who somehow got his insane ideas legally approved to be built.

Not saying that's a bad thing by any means but still.

Ron Toomer had a shot with drachen fire but failed.  

If Alan was there and did drachen fire arrow may still be in business.  It was to late with Tennessee tornado.  X was rushed as it was a last ditch effort by the company to stay relevant against the European firms.

It says "best coaster designer," I thought it was a bit disrespectful to leave out the legend of bent coat hanger design. May his ghost give you extra headbangs on Vortex.

Maybe my post did not come off correctly. I was trying to make a joke. It seems the 2 designers listed were more RMC and Intamin designers.

Mr. Stengel has designed over 600 coasters.

I don’t think anyone is debating that.

Having 1 sized loop for years is like thinking the world was flat.

So you don't like a designer that may have been the inspiration for your beloved Intamin designs and engineering because he used the same size loops?

I like old school b&m's before their hypers.  The 2000's saw b&m focus on boring and mediocre rides with reliability while intamin focused on insane rides.  I am blessed to have grown up in the 2000's.  People of today that get off an rmc for the first time is how I felt getting off the many intamins last decade.

Rmc is this generations intamin.
