Parkscout European Jury Award 2011/2012

Thrill and excitement can be found in nearly 400 European amusements parks with more than 700 different rollercoasters. Two years ago Parkscout initiated the all-new "Parkscout International Jury Award" to savour the work of all those parks.

These awards will be rewarded by an international jury of eleven people representing the most important fan sites from Belgium and the Netherlands, the British European Coaster Club, the Austrian website Airtimers and the leading German fan sites onride.de and Freizeitparkweb. All members of the jury gave one to ten points for their favorite ten attractions and rides in each category which then were added to an overall result which is presented below:
