Last week’s poll was a battle of the manufacturers where we put two, top notch Wooden Coaster Designers, the Gravity Group and Great Coasters International, head to head in the battle for this week’s crown! GCI has been around for almost 14 years, while Gravity Group introduced their first creation, Hades in 2005.
Both companies have received their fair share of awards for their coasters. Gravity Group has pulled numerous Golden Ticket Awards for Best New Ride of 2005, 2006, and 2008 with GCI grabbing the award in 2009 with their new coaster Prowler. The Voyage was once the winner of the famous Mitch Hawker’s Coaster Poll with GCI consistently being in the top.
While Gravity Group did fall short by one vote in the poll, it shows that this company is off to a great start, putting up a close fight against what many consider to be one of the best wooden coaster manufacturers in history.

As for what you can expect in the future from these great companies, GCI will be introducing “Joris en de Draak” a new dueling wooden coaster at Efteling in the Netherlands. Gravity Group will be debuting their new ‘Timberliner’ trains on Holiday World’s Voyage, and we’ll likely see them on more wooden coasters in the future.
The new poll for this week is a battle between classic and modern, the tall and the taller, the biggest and the best. We challenge you to choose your favorite Mega Coaster Manufacturer!
