Attraction Awards 2018: Nominate

Welcome to another installment of our annual Attraction Awards, a just-for-fun, nonscientific polling of our readers to determine the “best” of six amusement industry- and roller coaster-inspired categories.

We’ve picked six new categories this year: best new-for-2018 attraction, best park entrance, best lift hill view, best park Twitter, best coaster “moment” and best nighttime coaster ride. Learn more about the categories and nominate.

Nominations will be accepted through Sunday, July 1, 2018 at 11:59 p.m.

1. Best New-for-2018 Attraction

The 2018 season has seen the debut of a slew of new roller coasters and other attractions. A few were the first of their kind. Others broke world records. And some were just plain fun. Which do you think reigned supreme?


2. Best Park Entrance

Often times, a park’s main entrance is the first up-close impression it makes on guests as they start their day. Some entrances are subtle, while others are more extravagant. Of course, you can’t always judge a book by its cover, but the main gate can give you an idea of the caliber or quality of what’s inside.


3. Lift Hill with the Best View

A roller coaster’s lift hill offers riders not only a preview of the ride that lies ahead, but it also offers usually unobstructed views of the surroundings. Which lift hill view do you think is the best?


4. Most Engaging Park Twitter

Over the last decade, Twitter has redefined the way in which parks can communicate with guests and fans — sharing news, behind-the-scenes coverage, photos, videos and more is as easy as the tap of a smartphone screen.

Some parks have taken this a step further, using Twitter as a way to talk one-on-one to fans or to better engage their followers. Which park do you think has the most engaging Twitter presence?


5. Best Coaster Moment or Element

Some roller coasters have unique or very specific elements (inversions included) that are iconic or memorable.

Be specific when nominating. Elaborate if needed.


6. Best Coaster to Ride at Night

Riding a coaster at night can provide a completely different experience from a daytime ride. Which roller coaster do you think offers the best nighttime ride?


Remember, this is a nonscientific, just-for-fun polling.

Nominations for the 2018 Attraction Awards will be accepted through Sunday, July 1 at 11:59 p.m. Voting will begin soon thereafter.
