PLEASE NOTE: The awarding of ribbons above and the official summary below represents the voting results as of the official close of voting at midnight on March 15, 2012. The actual data above may include votes cast after the official close.

And the 2011 winners are....

We would like to thank everyone who participated in our 5th Annual GreatAdventureHistory.com Warner Awards.

Starting with the rides, Best Ride (Non Roller Coaster) was won by the Saw Mill Log Flume with 30% of the votes while Houdini's Great Escape took second place with 19%. Third place was awarded to the Skyride with 13% of the votes. These three rides were also top award winners last season in 2010.

In the Best Roller Coaster wars, El Toro and Nitro, have taken the first and second spots for five straight years in a row with closer results this year at 33% and 31% of the votes, respectively. Kingda Ka took third place with 13% after being bumped from the top three spots last year by the Great American Scream Machine. Surprisingly, 2011's newest attraction The Green Lantern only obtained 4% of the overall votes casted.

Houdini was voted the Best Themed Attraction after being awarded with 33% of the ballots. The Dark Knight Coaster landed in second place with 20% of the votes and Bizarro nudged out last year's third place winner Kingda Ka with 15% of the votes.

For the third year in row Bizarro's themed sign was a big winner. Voters gave it top Best Attraction Sign honors with 44% of the votes followed once again by Kingda Ka with 22%. Nitro was displaced with the new Green Lantern's sign to take third place this year with 19%. Nitro's sign dropped off the charts from 11% in 2010 to only 2% in 2011.

The Best Upcharge Ride or Attraction award went to Dare Devil Dive with 43% of the tally followed by the new Slingshot ride with 33%, and the Great American Road Race rounded out the top three with 22%.

The Best Attraction to Ride at Night race provided the same exact results as last year with the winners being Nitro, Big Wheel, and Bizarro taking in 44%, 14%, and 9% of the ballots.

Great Adventure's Best Remaining Original Attraction from 1974 was the Log Flume with 44% of the votes. The Sky Ride slipped from 37% last year to 26% this year placing it in second place with the Runaway Train taking third place again this year with 17% of the votes.

With the majority of 2010's entries eliminated for 2011, the Best Show contest had a major shakeup this year. Even so, fireworks still ranked very high with the Fireworks Spectacular taking 48% of the votes followed by Dolphin Discovery with 24% and the Safari Discoveries Show ranking third at 13%. Last year the top three spots were awarded to Saturday Night Lights, Team Tiger, and the Glow in the Park parade.

Remaining true to form, Fright Fest was picked as the Best Event for 2011 again with a huge 74% of the votes. Dead Man's Party, was chosen as the Best Fright Fest Attraction with 31%, followed by Escape from the Asylum (13%) in second, and Ghoulmaster's Ghost and the Haunted Midways tied for third place with 11% each.

The Golden Kingdom was tops again with 46% of the votes taking Best Themed Section. The 2010 winner for Best Children's Section, Balin's Jungleland, was defunct in 2011 pushing Looney Tunes Seaport to the highest rank with 44% of the votes followed closely by Bugs Bunny National Park in second place with 43% and the new Safari Kids coming in last with 13%.

Best of the West Barbeque still reigns supreme with 57% of votes being cast for it in the Best Restaurant Food category and 44% of guests voting it the nicest in the Best Restaurant Facility category. In the Best Food/Snack Stand award, the Conestoga Wagon climbed its way back to the top with 24% of the votes after having fallen to second in 2010. Last year's first prize winner Johnny Rockets dropped to third place in 2011 with 15% behind the Cyber Cafe with 17%. Johnny Rockets was selected once again as Best Name Brand Food establishment with 44%, up 10% from last year. Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs came in second with 22% followed by Ben & Jerry's (11%).

The Boardwalk was voted as Best Games center with 40% followed by Studio 28 at 37% and the Dream Street Tent's Boardwalk Game Center with 17%. The Best Games of Skill winner was "The Heist" with 26% of the votes followed by its close neighbor Kingpin Bowl-a-Rama with 22%. Like last year, the Paint Ball game finished last.

Main Street Market's popularity grew this year with 48% of the votes making it the Best Shop, followed by the Looney Tunes Shoppe (15%) and the Justice League Headquarters winning third place with 13%. Last year's second place winner Kingdom Traders was rethemed in 2011 pushing its popularity down from 20% (second place) to 6% (fifth place).

Hurricane Harbor's newest attraction, the Tornado slide was voted Best Hurricane Harbor Attraction for its second year with 33% of the votes. The Falls came in second with 16% of votes and the Taak It Ee Zee Creek lazy river took third place with 15% - the same winners as last seaon.

In the Wild Animal Safari Park we had a tie for first place - the African Plains and Bear Country sections took in 28% each in the Best Safari Attraction award. The Tiger's Lair section had 13% of the votes followed by the Lion Kingdom and Baboon Village tied for third with 9% each.

The 2011 Best New Feature or Improvement was a landslide with the Green Lantern taking first place with 50% of the votes. Second place was actually a refreshment outlet - the Coca-Cola Freestyle shop which allowed guests to sample various flavors of soda coming in second at 22%. Third place honors were given to the new Safari Discoveries animal interaction area with 17% of the votes.

Looking forward we offered two new categories. Best Opportunity for Reopening/Redevelopment was awarded to having the now closed Old Country area reintroduced into the park. It was elected by 35% of our voters. Our second most popular request was that the Batman Stunt Arena reopens (22%) and the reintroduction of a new Super Teepee was selected for third place with 19% of the voters.

The other topic for the future was what voters would Most Like to See in 2013. The top requests for new capital were a Drop Tower (26%), new Thrill-Type Flat Rides (17%), and a new Dark Ride (13%). Various types of roller coasters all ranked lower than these three selections.

Well, those are the results of our 5th Annual 2011 Warner Awards as voted by our members at GreatAdventureHistory.com. As always, we applaud this year's winners but would like to take a moment to reflect back on the attractions we lost this past season. (Click the placard below)

A quick note to recognize an omission in our ballots this year
in the Best New Feature or Improvement category:

We would like to acknowledge the refurbishment and repainting of
Great Adventure's classic Skyride cars. Through the sponsorship
of M&M's, the skies over the park were once again filled with the
colors of the rainbow with our newly restylized gondolas!

^ Although I wouldnt have voted for it, I really like the M&Ms Skyway. I like M&M's and it gives the Skyway a fresh new look too.
As far as voting, I still think Dark Knight is better themed, but Houdini is good. Most of the other votes were what I expected. Every vote counts. I noticed that the Seaport won by one vote against the National Park, I voted for the Seaport.
