What rides have you ridden in their debut season?


Recommended Posts

Lets see... This isn't really something that I've thought about, but from the top of my head:

Banshee

Untamed

Skyrush

Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit

Shiekra

Verbolten

Goliath (SFNE, when it was good...)

And, I think that's it...

Really not that many, but there are a few:

 

Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts - USO (2014)

Hogwarts Express - IOA/USO (2014)

Seven Dwarves Mine Train - MK (2014)

Chiapas - Phantasialand (2014)

Wodan - Europa Park (2012)

Hotel Tartuff - Phantasialand (2012)

Expedition Everest - DAK (2006)

Stitch's Great Escape (2004)

 

Beyond that I'm a bit more hazy on what I rode and when exactly I rode it.

Too many to count, but the one that stands out was opening season of Top Thrill Dragster. I drove 5.5 hours and then waited in line for 6.5 hours just to ride it once. It seemed worth it at the time, but it's not my intention to ever wait that long in line for a coaster again.
