2007 - Hollywood Dream
2011 - Space Fantasy

Yay!


Hate to tell you but Space Fantasy was there in May 2010 when I first visited USJ (though I didn't ride it at that time so I can't count it here). I did ride Kyary Pamyu Pamyu XR ride in May 2016 so maybe I can count that if I stretch a bit.

The only non-home park ride I can really count is the Flying Dinosaur. Good ride, but it left me with the impression that flying coasters are a dumb idea. Loops serve little purpose when you're only upside down on the ascent or descent. Also, the seating position is... awkward.

I'm terrible @ this thread. :lol:

Rougarou @ CP?
Joker @ SFNE
Delirium @ KD

That's about all I got. :lol:

If include GreatAdv I can count Joker, Zumanjaro, GASM. Not even Diablo (still haven't ridden it) or Justice League (haven't been since it opened, trying to change that soon). If I include Wildwood it would be a long list since I've been there every summer since I was an infant - basically every new addition in its opening season since the early 80s.
Maverick - El Toro - Skyrush - Superman The Ride - I305
TRs: KW/CP / SFOG / KD/BGW / HP / SFA / SFNE/LC

Still a relative newbie to hobby at this level and so having trouble still.

I really count:

Rougarou
Cobra's Curse
Mako
Joker at Great Adventure

because I watched those things go from rumor to built online. All of the other stuff over the years I might have been on and not known it was the first year.

My best credit is Universal Orlando 1st year. Free tickets to return and wait in ride breakdown lines again. Those rides had some Jay Bangs.
Meister Brau just wants a path from CC to SM at SFA, meal plan burrito, some shade, and a restroom back there.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I last posted in 2014.

So...

2015
Batman: The Ride, SFFT
Blastin' Barrels, Cultus Lake Adventure Park
Runaway Mine Train, Cultus Lake Adventure Park
Switchback, ZDT's Amusement Park

2016
Flight of the Hippogriff, USH
Storm Chaser, Kentucky Kingdom

I'm not listing any new coasters for 2017, but I rode the Albany Brass Ring Carousel on its opening day, and I also rode Rainier Amusements' Arctic Blast coaster, which is new to the company.

What I just learned from RCDB: I've been slackin' terribly on keeping track of brand new coasters, let alone riding them! Granted, most I came across were kiddie rides or run-of-the-mill, likely-not-good family rides.
