Not that many

The Mr Freeze coasters should have speakers playing the sentence: "Let's kick some ice!" right before each launch

What does one say after riding a Batman clone?
The G force is strong with this one.

EDIT: If I were to add my home park, Canada's Wonderland I have been on Slingshot (2015), Skyhawk (2016), and Flying Eagles (2016) during their inaugural seasons. :)


Keeping with the tradition of not including my home park, another ride I have been on during its debut season is the Time Machine at Seabreeze Amusement Park during my first visit to the park last week on my three day WNY park trip. The Time Machine is a custom designed Super Miami model ride. It gave a great ride and the restraints were very comfortable. :)
Canada's Wonderland is my home park!

Hmmmm...

2017
- InvadR

2016
- Valravn

2013
- Iron Rattler

2011
- New Texas Giant

Yep, that about sums it up. . . Most of these were because I just happened to be at the park the year they opened. I don't really go out of my way to ride a coaster it's first year in operation. We plan our trips a year+ in advance, usually before a park has even announced their newest addition for the operating season that we will be there. So if I've ridden something in it's debut season it's just luck.
