I'll stick up for MF. I finally got to ride Fury maybe 4 or 5 times this past May. I live 2 and a half hours from Cedar Point, so I have ridden MF maybe 40-50 times, including this past May as well. For 23 years old, it is still running the same as the year it opened. IMHO, two different rides from two different manufacturers that make it hard to compare other than their heights. I wouldn't want either of them to be almost exactly like the other. I will say that Fury is more dynamic in terms of moving around and taking turns, and MF doesn't push you laterally, but it is so fast the whole way. And I love the view at CP. I am happy they both exist. They are both at Cedar Fair parks with great operations.

Not a lot of surprises from the Golden Tickets this year but that's OK. Of course I'm always happy to see my home park Fury 325 winning best steel coaster. A coaster so good it can win awards even with a cracked support beam! =P

I've only ridden MF a couple of times so I don't feel super qualified to make that call. I'll just say maybe its nostalgia factor is bigger than its airtime. ;)

One thing that is not up for debate is Dolly! I've loved her ever since I was a kid, and of course I love Dollywood as well. I'm well overdue for a trip back there with the family!

Forget about a position. I say, Dolly for President! Dolly and Dollywood are great.

Ouch!
