So, since I can't include my home park, Canada's Wonderland, I'll have have to settle with Dorney Park. During my first visit to the park during June 2015, I took a ride on their Cedar Creek Flyers which was new for 2015.

 

EDIT: If I were to add my home park, Canada's Wonderland I have been on Slingshot (2015), Skyhawk (2016), and Flying Eagles (2016) during their inaugural seasons.

Hmm, it's only been a few years since I've started going out of my way for coasters on opening years, so my list might be short. And excluding my home park, Cedar Point, here's what I can think of:

 

Leviathan (2012)

Hades 360 (2013)

Banshee (2014)

Lightning Run (2014)

Goliath (SFGAm, 2014)

Impulse (Knoebels, 2015)

 

That's all I can think of...Like I said, short list! But there will be more to come, I'm sure! And there's probably some I've forgotten!

I thought Lightning Rod was the only one, but after looking through my list, apparently I rode Python at SFA (Wild World at the time) in its first season there, 1993. Wouldn't have guessed it was a first season since there were closed rows with duct tape holding the OSTRs down.
