I understand that this says no home parks, and CP + KI are not home parks. I just visit them every year.

2006: Expedition Everest

2007: Maverick, Firehawk (a bit of a stretch)

2009: Diamondback

2010: Shoot the Crapids (yes I spelt it how it should be named)

2011: Windseeker-KI and CP

2012: Manta-San Diego

2013: Gatekeeper

2014: Soon to be Banshee, Soon to be Lightning Run

If this extends to rides and not just coasters, then... (excluding my home park)

2005 : All the new kiddie rides at The Great Escape in the Looney Tunes section (yep, I was still 7 at the time)

2009 : Sasquatch @ The Great Escape (I think)

2012 : It' @ Morey's Piers (I think it was added in 2012 ?)

2013 : Gatekeeper @ Cedar Point, Screamin' Eagles @ Great Escape

2014 (coming soon) : Extreme Supernova @ Great Escape, hopefully others !

All of my 'Debut' coasters/rides were at SFOG. My mom used to get us season passes every year so we were regular visitors to the park. I think her daredevil antics are the reason I love coasters and thrill rides so much and partially the reason behind me actually working at the park.


Here's my list:

1992 - Ninja (I still remember my ears ringing when I got off)


1995 - Viper (Which became my favorite before Deja Vu arrived)


1997 - Batman The Ride


1999 - Georgia Scorcher


2001 - Deja Vu and Acrophobia (2 great rides in 1 year! U can't beat that! Still miss the Vu tho )


2002 - Superman Ultimate Flight (I was a little pissed over the removal of Viper)


2006 - Goliath (I was an employee on opening day, I got to ride it with other employees the night of the Season Pass Holders sneak peak - Front Seat in the dark!!)

The only one I can think of is Curse of DarKastle. I end up going to a park the year after they get something new like Verbolten or The Wizarding world of Harry Potter. I went to Hershey the day before Skyrush opened so I was extremely pissed that it turned out to be a great ride that I missed by a day :/ oh well. This year I plan on going on Goliath at Six Flags Great America so I'm pumped!!
