Unfortunately, despite planning my Europe trip for late-June, I was still too early for Valkyria, Fenix, Eurosat 2.0, and even Holiday Park's new coaster. Oh well, I'm already looking forward to revisiting all those parks anyway!

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.

 

Keeping with the tradition of not including my home park, another ride I have been on during its debut season is the Time Machine at Seabreeze Amusement Park during my first visit to the park last week on my three day WNY park trip. The Time Machine is a custom designed Super Miami model ride. It gave a great ride and the restraints were very comfortable.

 

 

Here is an update:

 

2015:

 

-Cedar Creek Flyers at Dorney Park

 

2017:

 

-Time Machine at Seabreeze

 

2018:

 

-Tourbillon at La Ronde

-Pandemonium at The Great Escape

-Cyborg Cyber Spin at Six Flags Great Adventure

 

That is my list for now!

I just realized that this year I've been to 6 parks this year: SFGA (both), SFA, Knoebles, Hershey, and a tiny amusement park/large FEC called Adventure Park USA, all of which had new for 2018 attractions, but the only park where I did it was Adventure Park USA, where I rode the new skycoaster

It was actually my first skycoaster, and was a lot of fun!
