Okay, here are the rides I've ridden in their debut. Now there are a ton of rides at Kings Dominion that I've ridden in their opeing seaon (rides such as The Grizzly (1982), the Shockwave (1986), the Hypersonic XLC (2001), and Intimidator 305 (2010). But Kings Dominion is my home park, so naturally I can be there to ride the rides in their opening year.


Now, as for the other rides that I've ridden in other parks and on their opening year, here we go:


Carowinds - Carolina Cyclone, Afterburner (aka Top Gun), and the Carolina Cobra.

Kings Island - Son of Beast, the Backlot Stunt coaster (aka The Italian Job), and Diamondback.

Cedar Point - Raptor, Millienum Force, Wicked Twister, Top Thrill Dragster, and Maverick

Knotts Berry Farm - Pony Express

Six Flags Great Adventure - Batman - the ride, Nitro, and El Toro


I'm sure there were others, but these were the rides that stood out. If i could name all the rides I've ridden in there debut season, I'll be writing for nearly forever, and I believe someone is waiting for me.


"You got that right, mister!"

I have a few to add to this list for 2012, thanks to TPR: Wooden Coaster (Knight Valley, China); Dauling Dragon, Monte Carol Racetrack, and Hidden Anaconda (Happy Valley Wuhan, China); Suspended Looping Coaster (Victory Kingdom, China); and Big Grizzly Runaway Mine Cars (Hong Kong Disneyland). I've also ridden Wild Eagle at Dollywood.
