Hmm--I guess for me, it's finally getting around to visiting Cedar Point. Every time I plan to visit some season, something comes up that interferes with my plans. Well, maybe next year--finally.

My whole list is 5 pages long (I have it in a word document broken up into about seven categories), so here's the top priority lists (in no particular order):

 

Parks:

 

Alton Towers

Beech Bend

Coney Island Parks

Europa Park

Florida Parks

Grona Lund

Heide-Park Soltau

Hersheypark

Holiday Park

Idlewild

Kennywood

Kings Island

Knoebels

Liseberg

Michigan's Adventure

Silverwood

Six Flags Great America

Six Flags Over Georgia

Six Flags Over Texas

Toverland

Wisconsin Dells Parks

Worlds of Fun

 

Coasters (not at any of the above parks):

 

Any B&M Wing Coaster

Any Intamin Mega-Lite

Black Mamba (Phantasialand)

Boardwalk Bullet (Kemah Boardwalk)

Cornball Express (Indiana Beach)

El Toro (Freizeitpark Plohn)

Goliath (Walibi Holland)

This list excludes coasters that have not yet opened. Another note is that I would like to ride several of the coasters in China (such as the three woodies, the stingray, and a few others), but am currently not willing to travel to China to do so, and I would like to visit Japan just for the experience and not for any specific parks/attractions (other than Tokyo Disney).

Recently, I decided to take a look at what parks should be highest-priority for me in the US. Criteria: owned by a major corporation (16), has at least one wooden coaster (25), or has at least four credits (only one that doesn't fall into at least one of the other two categories). In total, there are 34 parks that have a significant number of coasters, are particularly famous or high-profile, have at least one desirable coaster, complete a "set" for me, etc. It's not a complete list as there are also a handful of smaller parks I'd like to get to that have at least one major steel coaster.

 

Arnolds Park

Bay Beach Amusement Park

Beech Bend

Belmont Park

Camden Park

Castle Park

Cliff's Amusement Park

Conneaut Lake Park

Darien Lake

Disney's Animal Kingdom

Disney's Hollywood Studios

Dixie Landin' Family Theme Park

Dutch Wonderland

EPCOT

Family Kingdom Amusement Park

Frontier City

Fun Spot Action Park

Idlewild & Soak Zone

Lagoon

Lakemont Park

Legoland California

Legoland Florida

Little Amerricka

Magic Kingdom

Magic Springs & Crystal Falls

Martin's Fantasy Island

Michigan's Adventure

Seabreeze

Sesame Place

Stricker's Grove

Universal Studios Hollywood

Waldameer

Waterville USA

Wild Adventures

Most things I would have wanted to ride or would like to in the near future are made pretty accessible through the TPR trips. But a few things off the top of my head I've yet to ride:

 

Mindbender (Galaxyland)

Dodonpa

iSpeed

Formula Rossa

T-Express

Dragon Khan

 

 

And a ton of random other ones. But these are up there pretty high.

I've had some anticipated roller coasters to check off my list to ride and put on my credit list. I still have a lot of roller coasters I'm dying to ride so this got me thinking, what rides do people want to put on their credit list the most? So basically just put your top 5 most anticipated credits and provide reasons why the roller coasters are in your top 5. I'll start.

 

5. Outlaw Run (Silver Dollar City)- it's a Rocky Mountain coaster that is new in 2013. I've always been very curious about coasters like this to see how it would turn out and with the success of New Texas Giant, I really hope to ride this 1 day.

 

4. Iron Rattler (Six Flags Fiesta Texas)- basically same reasons as Outlaw Run. I put this ahead of Outlaw Run because based on POVs, the layout looks a little better to me plus it has a tunnel. Another highly anticipated Rocky Mountain coaster for me.

 

3. Tatsu (Six Flags Magic Mountain)- i've always loved pretzel loops. It's probably my favorite element on any ride plus I'm a huge fan of Superman: Ultimate Flight. This is supposed to be a better version of Superman, the loop is higher and the theme looks great. I really want to see how much better this is than Superman.

 

2. Voyage (Holiday World)- this wooden coaster always goes head to head with El Toro for the title of best wooden coaster in the world. El Toro happens to be my favorite ride. I also hear Voyage has the most airtime on any coaster. With all of these reasons, I really need to ride this ride to see who the title of best wooden coaster really belongs to.

 

1. Intimidator 305 (Kings Dominion)- i've heard so many positive things about this coaster. For instance that it's intense, has a very good drop and has a lot of airtime. That basically reminds me of a steel version of El Toro. If it's even close to El Toro status, it can end up very high in my top 10 list, perhaps even number 1.

 

So those are my 5 most anticipated credits. What's yours?

 

MOD EDIT: I moved your post, no need for a separate thread from this very similar one.

My bucket list has changed a lot recently..currently topping it are:

 

Starry Sky Ripper/Scraper/Scrapper: The B&M flyer in China..the most unique layout I've ever seen on a coaster. The reaction from Robb and the other TPR members (who have all ridden countless coasters) of how surprised they were at how great it was says it all, this one tops my bucket list easily.

 

Gravity Max, the Taiwanese Tilt Vekoma: Blown away by this concept..no idea this existed until I saw TPR post it, it looks amazing and I really want to try it.

 

Outlaw Run: So unique, so crazy..wish it was easier to get to..must try it!!

 

Eejanaika & Dinoconda: I'm a 4D nut, I'd like to ride them all, pain or no pain.

 

Kingda Ka: Im on the west coast so I havent been able to get out east to ride this or TTD, a problem I will solve sooner than later.

 

Intimidator 305: Ive heard so many good things, I have to try it just from the hype.

El Toro (SFGAdv): See previous.

Expedition GeForce: See previous.

 

 

Side note: Cool to see that a coaster at my little ol' local park SFDK is making people's bucket lists..Superman: Ultimate Flight is definitely a good one. That roll is pretty amazing. I always like to watch and see who has the guts to put their arms up and hang by their knees upside down at 150 feet!
