Do you mean Droughts as in riding a new coaster or riding a coaster period?


I rode TTD a few weeks after opening May 2003 and did not ride a new to me coaster till this past May 2006 (Storm runner).


It sucked going 3 years without going anywhere out of state but I had other responsibilities to take care of.


Since I have 2 parks so close I never go more than 4 months (offseason) without a coaster ride.

I'm not toatally sure....but i think mabye.........2 years without riding a coaster, and mabye.....i'd have to guess 5-6 years without riding a new one, at that time, It started with going to KBF during the construction of Xcelerator, and ended with going to Knott's earlier this summer.

I usually go to Six Flags Great America about 8 times a year, Cedar Point at least once if not twice, and Worlds of Fun at least once. Every 2nd year I usually go to Orlando. Oh ya, my home park Adventureland 2 or 3 times.


This year has sucked!!! I have yet to ride a coaster. My dad was diagnosed with Lou Gehrigs Disease last October and we have been taking care of him. So I haven't been able to leave the state.


There is a silver lining to all of this I guess. My coaster count stands at 99 and 100 would have been the Patriot. Now I have a convention to go to in Orlando in October so number 100 will be Expedition Everest. Which is extra special because my brother works there.



Thanks boss for 8 days in Orlando with only 8 hours of convention time!!!

Before I was an enthusiast (June 04), I usually visited one park a year and then there were of course long times when I didn't ride anything.


Still now because of the looong off-season, I don't ride any coaster in 6 months, which is a bit annoying.

Since becoming a true coaster fan, my longest drought was just over a year. But college and not having a car will do that to you. Thankfully, I've remedied the latter, and I've since been to Dollywood (my home park until my recent move to NC), PKD, and PC all within a short time frame. The season is quickly coming to a close, but I'm hoping to find someone who will tag along to BGE with me. I've never been there before, but I'm dying to go!
