I have a few things on mine, specifically Leviathan (might be going to Canada's Wonderland this coming summer so that may not be far off), Kingda Ka (just missed it - was at SF Great Adventure last fall and it was down - I've been on TTD many times but would like to compare them as they are the only two of their kind in the world so far), Sky Rush (hopefully they will get the restraint problem worked out before I can get there), and the Coney Island Cyclone simply due to its historical significance (though I might want to do that one sooner than later as my back isn't getting any younger!). Also, there is one coaster that's near the top of my bucket list - and I hope to heck that I can get to it before they re-build (can't imagine they would get rid of it) it - Space Mountain at WDW. I have ridden it once before but as a terrified 6 year old - I really, really want to ride it again at least once in my lifetime as an adult who loves coasters. I have sort of a mini-obsession with this ride as it is the one that sparked a 21 year long coaster phobia in my life. In some ways I'd choose to go to WDW and ride Space Mountain before all the others on my list just because of this - there's no other ride that I have so long of a personal history with.

 

I'd also like to ride any type of coaster I've never been on before, like a wingrider (I get to CP fairly regularly so I'm sure that will happen fairly soon).

 

As for parks, I'd like to expand my credits outside the US (again, if I go to Canada's Wonderland next summer that will do it, at least as far as hitting a park outside the US). It will be a long time before I can get outside North America but eventually I'd like to do a park in Europe at some point in my life. Here in the US I'd love to get back to BGA - sadly I haven't had the chance to set foot in that park since the Carter administration. That would bring back old memories the same as going to WDW to ride Space Mountain. I'd also like to get back out west and go to SFMM and KBF again to ride all the new coasters they have installed since 01'. Also, I'd like to go to SFOT as I've never been to any park in Texas.

 

As for other rides, I did have one that was on my bucket list but I just managed to finally cross it off a couple of weeks ago - I finally rode a Zipper at the Maryland State Fair. That's another ride I have been intrigued by since I was a child, when my mom forbade me to ride it after she and her friend rode it when they took me to a carnival when I was 9 years old.

There are many great rides out there. I haven't been on a lot, but I have seen quite a few of the videos (in fact, I found this forum through TPR's Youtube channel; I found TPR videos to be the highest quality out there). A bucket list, though, needs to consist of the experiences one must absolutely have. For that, my list is relatively short:

 

Millennium Force. This one has personal interest for me, as a friend went to work for Cedar Point shortly after it was built. It's more than just a roller coaster; it's like recovering a lost piece of my childhood. This will happen.

 

Busch Gardens Tampa Bay. My home park, Silver Dollar City, has kind of spoiled me into believing that a park should have more than great rides. It should be a complete experience. I've seen the TPR videos of all the coasters here, and I would love to be there. Busch Gardens seems to care about the environment the ride is placed in as much as they do the ride itself, and I value that highly.

 

Alton Towers. Like I'm sure a lot of others did, I first encountered this park through Roller Coaster Tycoon. I especially appreciate the park's attention to natural beauty. I probably won't be able to afford a trip to England until the kids are grown, but I will ride Nemesis, even if I have to wait until I'm 50.

About to check off one ride that's high on my bucket list, even though I've already ridden it - Colossus, I've ridden forwards but riding backwards has been on my list for years, I've never been able to get to SFMM during FF before but I'm going to get it done in a few weeks! Can't wait..
