    Alongside the list of manufacturers, write down the first coaster you associate with each. Don't overthink it, also don't make it about your personal preference. Just go with the first coaster that pops up!

    A few of these are surprising to me. Though, several times I got flahses of 3 or 4 coasters instantaneously, so had to pick the one that vaguely stood out.

    First up I'd like to say that flats come to mind first with some of these manufacturers for various reasons but I'll stick to coasters because that is the topic.

    Zierer: ermmmm (do they even make coasters haha)....can't think of any

    Well that went well.
    My knowledge of manufacturers is worse than I thought! Haha. I bet I could do better or at least equal with flat ride manufacturers.
