Thinking back, I had a better season than I thought I did!

 

Current coaster count: 221

# of new coasters ridden for me: 58

# of new for 2006 coasters ridden: 4

Park visits: 22 (including one this weekend)

Different parks visited: 18

New to me parks: 10

Park visited the most: SFMM, SFoG, Disneyland and Beech Bend all tie at 2 visits each

Wood coaster ridden the most: Kentucky Rumbler

Steel coaster ridden the most: Expedition Everest I guess...didn't keep track

 

Stand-out memorable experiences:

 

The TPR weekend in March was really awesome! I really enjoyed going to the Kentucky Rumbler media day, meeting Don and Monica at Holiday World and getting to hang with Mr. Quad-boob himself at SFoG. Spain was a fantastic trip all around, including the three theme park which were all beyond fantastic. And getting to meet Mike, Jahan, Guy and Alana at SFMM was really a blast too!

Luckily my season isn't over yet, since I have one more trip to SFoG planned, as well as a week in Orlando. Won't be getting any new credits though (unless a gift from God brings me my SFoG Deja Vu credit!)

Next year should be packed with coasters as well, since I have a trip across PA planned, as well as another trip back to SoCal, and at least one trip to Orlando.

I had a long year, florida and Cali seem so long ago.

 

- Coaster Count 147-150???? couple of carnie coasters that ive ridden. Around 70 new Creds in all Im not good at adding so ill leave it at that.

- 8 new parks

- only rode two of the 2006 coasters Goliath(SFOG) and Voyage

- 3 lost items to coasters; my wallet, my cellphone, and one of my hats.

 

Best Moment(1)riding GOLIATH 57 times the first day it opened. I got to meet Walter B of B&M this same day. (2) meeting, The Alveys and the Pope, all at the same time (3) Biggest accomplisment of the year goes to finally visiting Cedar Point after always wanting to go there as a kid. (4) got to see Xcelerator launch with people when it just started Hailing. That really had to suck for those people.

 

Worst moments (1)goes to my dumb decision to walk from Disneyland Resort to Knotts at 7:00am. It looked so close on the maps. What should have been a 5-10 min drive turned out to be a 2.5 hour walk. (2) Driving hours out of the way to go ride Voyage only for that biznitch to be closed most of the morning and we had to leave by 1:00. The bastard finally opened and we only got one ride in.

This year has been... average. As it always is.

 

I think I got a whopping 4 credits this year (Tatsu, Deja Vu and Canyon Blaster at SFMM, and the West Coaster in Santa Monica).

 

I visited THREE whole parks (woohoo!): Pacific Park in Santa Monica (which I shouldn't even count), I think we went to the Adventuredome in Vegas in January... and God, I think we've been to SFMM somewhere around 30 times this year alone. Maybe more. I lost count in May.

 

In all, I need to hit more parks. At least if I really need a coaster fix this winter I can go to SFMM again. Bwahahaha.

This has been my best year. I have ridden 60 new coasters which more than doubles my coaster count from 51 to 111. I have been to 8 new parks. My most memorable experiences of the year were being on the first public ride of goliath, Spring Fling at SFOG, and my midwest trip to Holiday world, SFGAM, Mt. Olympus, timber falls, and beech bend.

My '06 season was pretty bad as I only went to my home parks and nowhere else (see "location"). However, next season is shaping up to be a good season for me... I hope it is!

We had a pretty good year. We visited 14 parks in which 10 were new to us and we also rode 31 new coasters bringing my count up to 303. My oldest son who was just 3 this summer is now up to 37 coasters and my youngest son who just turned 1 in July got his 1rst credit on Roller Skater at SFKK. My wife and I are going to Las Vegas next week for the first time and will be riding the 4 major coasters there to finish off the year.

My year started out great, but ended kind of badly. I got to go on two awesome road trips with Jer [307], as well as a few day trips to parks. We've been very lucky with not missing any credits in the past, but this year we missed quite a few due to parks failing at life and also crappy weather.

 

Current coaster count: 206 [i know my signature says 204, but 2 coasters weren't listed on Coaster Fanatics]

# of new coasters: 76

# of new for 2006 coasters: 2

# of parks visited: 17

# of new to me parks: 15

Park visted the most: Paramount Canada's Wonderland

Wood coaster ridden the most: Avalanche [Timber Falls]

Steel coaster ridden the most: Vortex [PCW]

Favorite coasters of the year: Superman at SFNE, Voyage, Avalanche at Timber Falls, Batman at SFGam, Hades.

 

Awesome experiences:

Rainy but awesome day at Great Escape

Meeting imboredisux at Holiday World while waiting for the Raven to be fixed

Actually liking wood coasters for a change!

The Orbiter at PCW opening back up

There are tons more, but long lists are boring.

 

Bad experiences:

Lake Compost not opening for no reason at all!

Missing the bobsled at Great Escape because of the rain

La Ronde

Wild Beast being ruined by horrible new wheels

Best "New to me" Coasters - Mummy at USF, Dragons and Hulk at IOA, Expedition Everest

Biggest new coaster dissapointment - Tatsu at SFMM. Didn't do much for me to be honest.

Best park experiences - All of our Florida trip (only 20 minutes of rain in 9 days) especially IOA. One of the best park days EVER!!! Great park, great people, great food and no lines!!!

Bad Experiences - Philippine coasters ...
