Ride Bucket List

Recommended Posts

Naturally, I'd love to ride every notable coaster. But what I've been pondering most lately are wooden coasters.


The Gravity Group: Innovative layouts, great airtime even on small coasters, and in some cases...Timberliners!


Intamin: I've been craving more pre-fabs in my life. I love the thundering speed and unusually strong airtime of El Toro, and I'd love to experience its siblings, some of which are rumored to have even more airtime or appear to have more intriguing layouts.


GCI: Just on the chance there are others with the airtime of American Thunder, the intensity of Prowler, or the pure fun of rides like Renegade and Lightning Racer.


CCI: These may be a bit hit or miss, but I'm sentimental towards them, as Tremors and Timber Terror quickly made CCI my first favorite wooden coaster manufacturer. Since I've ridden those two and Boulder Dash, I'm not sure I'm even aware of which ones should be next for me (maybe Rampage and Shivering Timbers).


Scenic railways: I love the idea, and the history behind them. Plus, while I'd expect tame or overly modernized versions here and there, I've heard some are still quite intense.


Classic wooden coasters: Granted, this is another category offering vastly variable ride experiences, but I'm increasingly drawn toward the classics. Some are still airtime machines, and some are simply nostalgia trips. In this day and age, the designation can span quite a timeframe; I feel that some coasters from the 70s and perhaps even 80s fit the bill. And unlike many, I am a fan of the ACE Coaster Classics list; sure, it includes many tame rides, but on wilder ones, the restraint configurations can't be beat.


Wooden wild mice: Duh!

Don't have A List. And no coasters anticipated, yet.


But, for a ride I definitely want to ride at least once in my life is...


Ratatouille (eventually-to-open) at Walt Disney Studios,Paris.


It's (so far) always been my fave Pixar-Disney movie

and the (hopeful, still) fact that the ride will again use the

incredible awesomeness of "trackless vehicles" tech.

(see: Aquatopia/TDS; Pooh's Hunny Hunt/TDL)


In fact - I think I want to find and enjoy as many

Trackless Vehicle Rides as I can, while I can,

as the old body allows, lol.


So, hopefully, the Rat at WDS, and Mystic Manor at HKDL

I will eventually get to enjoy - and then, whatever new

trackless magic they'll come up with, in Shanghai.... mmmmm.


And then, there's other companies (like Sally Corp.) who do

trackless vehicle rides now. Got to find all of them, heh heh.


(And as a random sidebar - could you imagine Disney

coming up with a trackless vehicle ride in one of

those two huge circus tents in WDW/MK's new Circus

Land? That would be crazy and awesome sweet!)

And finally, Roller Coaster (formerly Manhattan Express), just for the dubious honor to have survived it.

There are so many I've yet to ride, but the ones that qualify for "Bucket List" level are:


1. Eejanaika (4D S&S in Japan)

2. Outlaw Run

3. Kingda Ka

4. El Toro

5. Dinoconda (Brand new 4D S&S in China)


And technically you could add X2 to to the top of that list..I rode it a bunch as X but havent been to SFMM since 2008. Going to rectify that in a few weeks. Yes, I'm the 4D coaster's #1 fan
