What rides have you ridden in their debut season?


Recommended Posts

I last posted in 2014.

 

So...

 

2015

Batman: The Ride, SFFT

Blastin' Barrels, Cultus Lake Adventure Park

Runaway Mine Train, Cultus Lake Adventure Park

Switchback, ZDT's Amusement Park

 

2016

Flight of the Hippogriff, USH

Storm Chaser, Kentucky Kingdom

 

I'm not listing any new coasters for 2017, but I rode the Albany Brass Ring Carousel on its opening day, and I also rode Rainier Amusements' Arctic Blast coaster, which is new to the company.

 

What I just learned from RCDB: I've been slackin' terribly on keeping track of brand new coasters, let alone riding them! Granted, most I came across were kiddie rides or run-of-the-mill, likely-not-good family rides.

I'm just going to break this up by the park(s):

 

Busch Gardens Tampa - Montu, Gwazi, and Sheikra

Cedar Point - Valravn and Steel Vengeance

Kings Dominion - Twisted Timbers

Silver Dollar City - Buzzsaw Falls, Wildfire, Powder Keg, Grand Exposition Coaster, and Outlaw Run

Six Flags Great Adventure - The Joker

Six Flags Great America - The Joker

Six Flags over Texas - New Texas Giant

Universal Orlando - Dueling Dragons, Woody the Woodpecker, Flight of the Hippogriff, and Rock it!

Walt Disney World - Barnstormer, Rock N Rollercoaster, and Everest

Worlds of Fun - Wacky Worm in 1993, which may have been my first coaster, but I think my parents took me on the Zambezi Zinger the year before.

--Spinning Dragons, Patriot, and Prowler.

 

I am probably missing some, but these are all great memories, with the exceptions of Grand Expo Coaster, Buzzsaw Falls (letdown), and Woody the Woodpecker, which had an awfully long line with painfully slow loading cycles.
