Well this is interesting. I moved from Ohio to NYC in 1982. My home park pre-82 was Idora Park. My home park since 82 is Coney Island Astroland. I also attend Drum Corps World Championships which is held in a different city each August, so I had figure that out, as I picked up some on the road.

 

The coasters I rode in their first season:
