Missed Credits: Coasters you COULD have...


Recommended Posts

I missed Batman Knight Flight at what was Six Flags Ohio at the time. I had just sat down in the train when it broke down just before closing (the floor wouldn't drop). I never made it back to the park l, which later closed as Geauga Lake. When I get to KD for the first time at least I'll be able to get the credit as Dominator!

So, you were going to count all of these as coaster credits or something???

I missed three coasters on my most recent trip, because they were closed. While I did not lose sleep over these, I was slightly bummed as these parks will not be easy to get back to for awhile.

 

Seabreeze: Bobsleds

 

Idlewild Park: Wild Mouse

 

Lakemont Park: Leap The Dips

 

Last year, I missed White Lightning at Lake Winnie, because it was closed as well.

 

I'm starting to think mice just do not like me.

I slept in during some of the credit whoring days on previous TPR trips in China and on the Oktoberfest one.

Canada's Wonderland - Time Warp

- Vortex

 

 

AGHHH! You skipped Vortex? Line always looks long, but ends up being a 30 minute wait or less. Definitely one of the top 3 rides at the park!

 

I'll second that, Vortex is a must ride for Wonderland visitors. It's especially a real treat on a foggy night

Kiddie coasters at various parks such as SFMM, Knott's, etc. The way I look at it is why waste my time waiting to go on one of these just to add one to the count when they are so many adult sized coasters and other rides to ride first. It's not like I'm going to beat (or even come close) to Robb and Elissa's count anyway. If I was at a park that had very few things to do, I would probably ride a kiddie coaster but I don't really go to those type of parks or credit whore stops. If I was on a TPR trip though, I would gladly go on the kiddie coasters with a train full of adult TPR members as its more about the silly experience than the count.

^ I don't worry about kiddie credits. I said I don't really care about them. I don't have kids either. I'm sure when I have kids in the future, I'll be riding the kiddie coasters with them, but only until they are tall enough to ride the adult coasters.

Last time I went to SFMM in 2006 I missed:

 

X - the lines were 3hrs

Batman: The Ride - I was the only one who wanted to ride

Colossus - I was the only one again

Ninja - Again just me

Revolution - Just me

Psyclone - I dont remember why

Deja Vu - doesnt matter I rode the same one last year anyway

Superman - It was closed

Goldrusher - Closed

 

So I really missed the entire park...

Head Spin/Big Dipper at Geauga Lake (and I guess Beaver Land Mine Ride too, not sure if I would've actually bothered riding it). There are a few other kiddie coasters I've passed on at various parks too.

Do you guys count racers as one or two credits if you went on both sides. Personally I count it as one, but does anyone count it as two?

I personally count them as two unless they are möbius and then each side is only half a credit.
