Almost every park gets a new ride each year so most parks I go to I ride a new ride. I'll just stick to the coasters.

 

2016- Joker (SFGAd) and Storm Chaser (KK)

2015- Thunderbird (HW) and I went to SFNE but Wicked Cyclone hadn't opened yet.

 

I tend to be a little behind and I'm just trying to catch up. I still haven't gotten on Lightning Rod and Fury 325, but have plans to ride them in the future.

 

I'll ride New Mean Streak in its debut year if it comes out in 2018

I rode Valravn this year, along with Cobra's Curse at BGT and Delirium at KD. In 2015 I rode Tempesto and Fury 325. Before that I can't think of any other major rides I've ridden when they've debut with the exception of a lot of rides at Hershey (home park).

I've been on quite a few, more than I can remember. Most notable experiences:

 

After Burn (Top Gun at the time) at Carowinds - I worked there then and was literally on the second train ever sent with people on it. Still one of my favorite inverteds.

 

Superman: Ultimate Flight at SFOG - Went to the media preview event. Rode it at least 10 times.

 

Expedition Everest - Working in marketing at WDW at the time so got to be among the first to ride it. Also got to ride it a night at an exclusive disney corporate event before opening (that was before AK was open after dark so it was really unique to see it at night, very dimly lit and kinda creepy!)

 

Tower of Terror version 4 - Not technically a new ride. This was the last major enhancement they did to ToT that included the randomized drop sequences, minor show scenes/elements in drop towers, etc. I was working at ToT at the time so go to do early cast previews during testing.
