I didn't realise how old some of the woodies I've ridden were!

 

I have the following 50+ yr old creds

 

Rutschebanen at tivoli gardens (lovely ride)

Scenic railway at margate

Thunderhawk at dorney

Jack Rabbit at kennywood

Big dipper at blackpool pb

Thunderbolt at kennywood (awesome coaster)

racer at kennywood (dull compared to grand nash)

Wildcat at lake compounce (really divided our group- most hated it, a few including me, liked it!

Great yarmouth pleasure beach roller coaster (my first cred!)

rutschebanen at bakken (ridden before the brakemanless trains)

roller coaster at blackpool (now nick streak)

Zipper dipper at blackpool (now blue flyer, and a rather nice kids ride)

Grand national at blackpool (AWESOME ride)

thunderbolt at SFNE - (another great coaster)

Comet at hersheypark

Tyrolean tubtwist at joyland

wild mouse at blackpool

 

and the relocated wild one at SFA

 

was spited by coney island

 

Oldest now closed - Pegasus at efteling - but maybe scenic at margate if it doesn't reopen.

or the water chute at great yarmouth (1978)

 

and I also have the concrete cred in monte igueldo

 

 

steelwise I have 5 from my birth year or before!

Montana rusa at tibidabo (now closed)

Cedar creek mine ride

I've ridden several from the 1970s:

 

River King Mine Train (1971, Six Flags St. Louis)

Fire in the Hole (1972, Silver Dollar City)

Zambezi Zinger (1973, Worlds of Fun)

ACME Gravity Powered Roller Coaster (1975, Six Flags St. Louis)

Screamin' Eagle (1976, Six Flags St. Louis)

Galaxi (1976, Cliff's Amusement Park)

 

By far, though, the oldest ride I've been on is the Ferris wheel at Six Flags St. Louis, built in 1904.

Dahlonega Mine Train at SFoG (1967). I know, I'm pathetic.

 

Aww. Show some love, Everyone likes a classic arrow mine train. (Well, this guy does )

 

Oh don't get me wrong, I LOVE the good ole DMT (was either my first or second coaster back in the day! They'd better not ever demolish that gem), it's a must ride every time I'm at that glorious park; for clarity, as I am bound to make horrid mistakes in clarifying my intent, what's pathetic in the sense that I meant for this thread is that 1967 is the oldest offer I can give in this thread of people who I am sure have far more than my laughable 15 (13 not counting kiddie coasters) coaster credits!

You and me both. I need to get out of Georgia. Luckily, I already got all the Disney credits in Florida.
