Coaster101 2024 Park Mania: The Semi-Finals

This. Is. March. You know what March means? It’s that time of year at Coaster101 where we typically fill out a college basketball bracket, have it bust after the first two days of the college basketball tournament, and shift our focus to what some (no one) call “The most important bracket in March.”

This year, we’ve brought back our annual bracket event called Park Mania! (cleverly named in an effort not to get a cease and desist letter!) with a few twists.

Just like the “real” bracket, we’ve created a 64-park bracket with some “play-in” games to make the final field. While we have crammed in a few extra parks for the vote-in region (to include more parks overall), the process is still largely the same. It’s important to note, when creating the brackets, there are no rankings and no geographic regions. With the exception of the “vote-in” rounds, the parks were randomly selected for their match-ups. This year, we’ve named the region after several coasters with “-hawk” in the name, and you’ll notice that the parks that have the “-hawks” are in their respective region!

Instead of the parks facing off against each other on the hardwood, we’re going to let you, the readers of, decide your pick for your favorite park in North America!

We have updated our voting process slightly and are closely monitoring spikes in votes. Voting percentages will be periodically checked, and we reserve the right to make future rounds “blind” votes where results are not shown. We also 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 who are voting legitimately – us included, because we have to deal with it!

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, and will end at approximately 8:00pm Eastern time on the specified date.
