I'm sure that's bad grammar, but you know what I mean. If you have any other suggestions, post them here. My vote is Vekoma, cuz their rides break down after some 5 years.

The mentioned companies aren't actually unsafe. I mean they are of course only the leading companies of the industry. I bet a lot of other coaster manufacturers out there make unsafe coasters. The safest coasters out there would definitely be by B&M, Intamin, and Giovanola. I love their coasters!

I agree (actually I've never been on a Giovanolla so I can't talk about them) but I put those up there in case someone who thinks they're unsafe can vote. *everyone should have the right to vote*

In overall, all companies listed in the vote are safe. But some lesser known coaster makers, like private companies don't have enough $$$ to make their ride safe. So basically I would vote for the smaller, poorer companies. Good poll tho :)

I put it on there. Should I put the "other" votes in for Togo?

i would have to say that the most "unsafest" coasters arent any of those companies... and are in fact the now mainly non-existant John Traver coasters of the good old days ;) many of which had a nurses station out side the exit for broken collar bones and stuff which happened a heck of a lot pre- depression days

Vekoma because numerous times there boomerang models have gotten stuck or broken down.

Arrow Has Had Several Coasters That Have Gotten Suck Upside Down So I Put Them.

It is my opinion that Vekoma's boomerang has a possible design fault... there must have been literally dozens of stuck trains, luckily "no-one was injured" in any of them :)

Togo coasters are hardly coaster because it seems as though there going to fall apart at anytime and they look very unsafe.
Though niether is Disaster Transport

Vekoma, Deja Vu broke down many times this year, and SLC's are so unstable, seeming!

I was going to say all are safe, but then I started thinking about who's had the most recent accidents this past year and Intamin popped into my head. The S:ROS accident, people were actually injured unlike a valley on a vekoma or whatever, then there was the cable snap on MF, and what about the woman that died on Perilous Plunge also made by Intamin. Not a good year for Intamin, safety wise. They still make the BEST rides though, maybe my chances are .1% that I'll die on one, thats safe enough.

i voted for "other" because my vote would go for pinfari, zierer, or zamperla. maybe the company themselves arent unsafe but because they make the small wild mouse rides at the little parks i would call them most unsafe. it seems that the unknown wild mice crash a lot.

Today's coasters are safe... although I admit that Intamin had a bad year.

The Harry Traver (that's his name, not John) coasters were pretty unsafe. I don't know that I would have ridden the Crystal Beach Cyclone, Lightning, or the Airplane Coaster if I was around back then... people really got hurt on those.

Also... since when does breaking down mean "not safe" unless it's the safety system that breaks? Frequent breakdowns just mean unreliability, not lack of safety.

I would say none, although I voted for B&M to make DeKalb panic. Heh heh heh....

If this were true than one in every one thousand people would die on an Intamin ride.

More like .000000000001% :)

I think all coasters are safe, but each coaster has some sort of flaw, no matter what.
