There's still a large contingency of ACErs who don't consider El Toro a "real" wooden coaster because it was a prefab, but somehow they justify that Voyage and other with steel structures are. Finally enough people have been on El Toro and the park has done enough to rebuild their image that ET is getting a fair shake and the recognition it deserves!

My argument of El Toro as a wood coaster is partially the prefab but more that it is laminate wood.

 

The results were very interesting to watch this year since there were more wood coasters on my list. The New Wooden Warrior primarily watching made the top 20 which is not bad I guess for a family wood coaster.
