As for my homeparks, they are The Boss (2000- not that I remember it, I wasn't an enthusiast back then), Patriot (2006), and Tony Hawk's Big Spin (2007).

2002

Viper-SFGAdv

 

Viper was new in 1995. It might have appeared like it was a new attraction if it had a really long line because it rarely operated in it's final seasons.

 

For me, I haven't ridden anything in it's inaugural season outside of my home park which is SFGAdv

 

So for SFGAdv I have

 

1996

Skull Mountain

 

1999

Medusa

 

2001

Nitro

 

2003

Superman: Ultimate Flight

 

2005

Kingda Ka

 

2006

El Toro

 

2007

The now neutered Robin side of Chiller. Still waiting on Batman.

For what I can remember....

 

This year! 2007

 

Just rode the new 'Formule X' coaster at the Drievliet Family Park in Den Haag.

 

And it was only a month old, too! (rode it beginning of May)

The only park that ive rode a ride on its debut season that I would consider not to be a home park would be Dollywood-Thunderhead.

 

All of these below I just consider home parks because they are only a couple of hour drive from where I live. Where Dollywood is about a 6 hour drive.

 

Six Flags over Georgia-Goliath

 

Alabama Adventure (former Visionland)-Zoomerang

 

Lake Winnie-Wild Lightning (Ithought I was goin to get to ride it on its debut day but they didnt have the entrance ramp finished when we thought they were supposed too...so it really dont count lol)

 

I didnt acctually ride it because I was too young but a couple of years ago when Opryland was still open my parents rode Hangman on its debut season.

I have ridden a few rides here in Aussie in their opening season but the big one for me was the Indiana Jones ride in Anaheim - i rode it on opening day! I was on holiday with my family way back in 1995 and it was pure chance that the ride opened that day. And i am going back to CA this year for a vacation with my mate so Nemo Sub will be a first season ride for me also as well as Sierra Sidewinder.

All coasters in De Efteling incl De Vliegende Hollander this year

All coasters in DLP and WDS, Paris

Remembered another 'recent' one...

 

Sept. 2002

 

WDS - DisneyParis

 

Rode the Rock 'n' Roller coaster in it's first six months of op. Lots of long lines for it. Back then.

 

Then I rode it this April at DLPR's 15th Anny celebrations.

 

A virtual walk-on, hah!

 

Will be interesting to see how crowds work (line-wise) in it, when the ToT finally opens in January, as well as the (now) opened Toon Studios and it's 2 new attractions.
