Longest for me since I started riding coasters at age six or so was November 2007-August 2008, about ten months. I had open-heart surgery in April, so I cautiously made my return to coaster riding late this summer (with my cardiologist's and surgeon's blessings, of course).

 

First coaster back from hiatus was S:ROS at SFNE. It was incredible.

Wow. Glad everything went well, and welcome back! Even with the doctors' blessings, how nervous/concerned were you during that first ride back?

For me it's 5 years.

 

My first coaster was when I was 3 years old. Since then I LOVED rollercoasters and wanted to ride the big ones at my home parks desperately. But they had an age limit of 8, and the one I rode when Iw as 3 got removed.

Only after I grew up and was finally old enough to ride I found out that the signs says that kids below the age of eight can ride with an adult. D'oh!

With school and not having much money I can have some pretty long breaks. I endured a nearly 2 year gap between coasters recently. Worst yet the final coaster I went on before the two years was a Boomerang. As of right now it's been about 6 months since my last coaster.

^Well, at least that hiatus from coaster riding was well worth it, as I must say that KidTurns looks absolutely adorable! At some point I'd love to meet the whole Alvey crew!

 

For me, the longest break I've had from coaster riding is about 1 year, for an offseason. Typically, I don't necessarily head right to a park when they open up in early May.

Before last month, it was almost 6 years for me from my visit to Holiday World in 2002 and last month to Six Flag Great America. Now that I live 15 minutes from Great America, my interest in coasters in no longer limited to books and the internet.

 

Welcome, neighbor to the north! I'm in Mundelein!

During the season my longest time without riding a coaster was in 2007 & it was 4 weeks! From the last day of the season until opening day of the next season 6 months 2005-2006! I'm stuck in the off-season until March & HATE it For the 2009 season I am going to try & hit a park every week. I have 5 parks within a 2 hour radius & Clementon Park which I can literally ride my bike to so this shouldn't be a problem & 3 season passes
