Missed Credits: Coasters you COULD have...

Recommended Posts

When I was at Ocean Park I skipped Dragon, the Arrow looper as I was afraid of it beating the crap out of me. I kind of regret that now because I've grown to realise I actually... like... Arrow loopers *puts flame suit on*


Also while in Hong Kong I had a chance to go to Disneyland but decided not to, mainly because Big Grizzly Mountain was opening 3 days after the day I would've visited and being in the park that close to opening and not being able to ride the ride would've killed me. Also in UK I skipped Chessington and Drayton Manor for re-visits to Thorpe Park and Alton Towers.


I've skipped a few kiddie credits as well, mainly because I'm not quite that low Also I wasn't with friends so it would've been a bit pointless.

I really could've got the following ones:

BGT: Air Grover and Sand Serpent

SFMM: Green Lantern, Canyon Blaster, Road Runner Express and Magic Flyer (although I'm not sure if I would even be allowed to ride the smaller two)

SCBB: Sea Serpent

Disney resort in Paris: Big Thunder Mountain, Casey jr., Crush's coaster

And some travelling stuff on a Spanish fair in 2010 (there was definitely a Mouse coaster...)

I missed out on the following kiddie coasters:


Bear Trax (Seabreeze)

Circus Coaster (Luna Park)

Dragon (Dorney Park)

Frankie's Mine Train (The Great Escape)

Grover's Alpine Express (Busch Gardens Europe)

Kozmo's Kurves (Knoebels)

Python Pit (Go Karts Plus)

Sea Serpent (Deno's Wonder Wheel Park)

Taxi Jam (Canada's Wonderland and Kings Dominion)


I missed out on the following "big" coasters:


HyperSonic XLC (Kings Dominion)

Pole Position (Fiesta Shows)

Soarin' Eagle (Scream Zone)

Steeplechase (Scream Zone)

Wild Mouse (Dorney Park)


I regret HyperSonic the most. When I visited Kings Dominion back in 2006, everything was a walk-on except HyperSonic. I waited in line for an hour and after two breakdowns I gave up trying to get the credit.


I skipped the Wild Mouse since the line was incredibly long. Meanwhile, I passed on the other three since my friends I was with didn't really want to go on them.

I'm going tp share a coaster that I could've had. Batman and Robin: The Chiller. My original days of going to SFGAdv started in 2007, and one day my dad and I walked right up to the Chiller entrance. We both thought that the line was too long and that we would ride it another day. Welp, another day never happened as it was closed forever...

Python (SFA)


I wish that ride was still there. I wasn't even tall enough when they removed it.


My missed credits:

-Gwazi (Tiger)-Shut down

-Sand Serpent-I don't know if this really counts, because I rode it back when it was at Williamsburg. Skipped it when I was in Tampa a few months ago.

-Pretty much every roller coaster at SFNE (Except for Bizarro, BDK, and Cyclone). It was Memorial Day and the park was very crowded. Even the Mind Eraser had an hour and a half wait. Goliath was also closed which had me a bit disappointed since I've never been on a GIB. Hopefully I'll be able to visit the park again on a slower day with everything up and running.

Missed Batwing at SFA and Goliath at SFNE, both shut the days I visited.


Also Gold Striker at CGA, my visit was during the interval between the ride being finished but not yet open due to noise.

I have a few that intentionally chose not to ride (coasters that were up and running), most all of them due to wanting to avoid roughness and/or headbanging.


I try to get all the credits I can, but ever so often there are a few coasters I just couldn't deal with. I often pass on kiddie coasters simply because they aren't worth the trouble.


When I went to SFOG about 4 years ago both my friend and I (I had never been there before, and she hadn't been there in many, many years) passed on Ninja because it was hotter than hell (this was the summer that had those awful heatwaves down south - it had to be 110 degrees there in the park that day) and we were tired by the time we got to that part of the park, and I had a headache due to the heat. At the time I thought it was an Arrow and I was like "heck no"! But I was close as a Vekoma would have been just as bad in firing up an even worse headache. Otherwise I would have ridden it for the credit.


When I went to SF Great Adventure a couple years ago I passed on Rolling Thunder because I had heard that it was extremely rough (also missed KK, but no fault of mine, as it was closed) and my back was acting up that day.


I also had to pass on a couple of coasters at Dorney a few years ago because I was struggling with a bad bought of nausea brought on by riding Talon. I passed on Thunderhawk and Possessed that day, but I'm glad I forced myself to ride the Laser since it is now gone.

I just picked up one today that I have previously avoided but I took care of today just in case it's removed in the near future (which is likely) that is Grizzly at California's Great America.


As for ones I've previously skipped that's no longer there:

From the same park, Invertigo (now Stinger at Dorney). Maybe I'll visit Dorney Park some day and get that one.

From SFDK, Zonga. It still exists but at a crappy seasonal park in Mexico, don't think that one will ever happen, it's as good as defunct.

From SFMM, Psyclone. From everything I've heard I didn't miss much. Glad it donated it's B&M trains to Colossus though

I have missed a few credits (most, if not all on the 2008 East Coast Trip) but none that had me losing sleep for missing them. Pretty sure the only one that is now defunct is Great American Scream Machine at SFGAdv, which means I've had one less headache in my life than I would of had.
