Coaster101 Presents 2020 Park Mania: Semi-Finals
The Best of the Best from Each Region!
Here at Coaster101, while we love a good bracket pool, we decided to have some fun with the bracket system this year, and bring back our annual event, Park Mania!
Just like the College Basketball tournament, we’ve included parks from across North America, and this year, added an International division, divided into four 16-team geographic regions; East, West, Central and International.
However, instead of the parks facing off against each other, we’re going to let you, the readers of Coaster101.com decide your pick for your favorite park in North America! (Note: Parks were divided by geography, and loosely ranked on seed lines. We’re just having fun with this. PLEASE do not be offended by the rankings.)
We have updated our voting process slightly this year and are closely monitoring spikes in votes. We will not be reporting exact results on social media during this year’s Park Mania, and voting percentages will be hidden this year. While this might feel less “transparent,” there were concerns with fraudulent votes last year. We reserve the right to remove any potentially fraudulent votes from the results, which kind of defeats the purpose of this being fun. Bottom Line: Don’t cheat and ruin this for your favorite park and everyone else legitimately voting for them!
Each voting round will take place over several days, and the schedule will be as follows. We’ll create a post each day with new polls for voting. All voting will be done right here on Coaster101.com, and will end at 8:00pm Eastern Time on the specified date.
