What rides have you ridden in their debut season?

Recommended Posts

There may have been more, but these are the ones I am sure of (although a few are only confirmed by family members).


At a home park (anything in Southern California):


Freeway Coaster & Tree Top Racers at Adventure City

Merlin's Revenge & Screamin' Demon at Castle Amusement Park

California Screamin' & Goofy's Sky School (then Mulholland Madness) at Disney California Adventure Park

Space Mountain (new) at Disneyland

GhostRider*, Jaguar!, Pony Express, Sierra Sidewinder & Silver Bullet* at Knott's Berry Farm

Coastersaurus, Dragon, Spellbreaker & Technic Coaster at Legoland California

Journey to Atlantis at SeaWorld San Diego

Apocalypse the Ride (then Terminator Salvation: The Ride), Green Lantern: First Flight, Road Runner Express, Scream! & Tatsu at Six Flags Magic Mountain

Revenge of the Mummy at Universal Studios Hollywood




Untamed at Canobie Lake Park

Intimidator at Carowinds

Intimidator 305 at Kings Dominion

Wooden Warrior at Quassy Amusement Park

Pandemonium (then Tony Hawk's Big Spin) at Six Flags Discovery Kingdom

Green Lantern at Six Flags Great Adventure

Gotham City Gauntlet Escape from Arkham Asylum at Six Flags New England


*These rides opened in December. While I did not ride them in their opening year, I rode them by the end of their first summer of operation.


Up until 2010, I visited very few parks outside of California. Now that I have begun traveling, I expect the list to grow by 2-4 coasters per year (assuming the right parks add coasters, as I can only do about one trip per year).

Not too many, but here's my short list:


Six Flags Discovery Kingdom

2003: Zonga (not sure if it counts, since previously it traveled around the German fair circuit)

2011: SkyScreamer. Rode it opening day, got in early with my season pass and rode it before the GP.


Six Flags Magic Mountain

2011: Superman - Escape From Krypton (If you count it as a new ride after its transformation) and Green Lantern: First Flight.
