- X2

- Kingda Ka

- GateKeeper

- Intimidator 305

- The Beast

- Verbolten

- Roller Soaker

- Radiator Springs Racers

- Bizarro

- GhostRider


Ticked all of these off in the last couple of months - except for Roller Soaker which is gone. Not sure how Verbolten or GhostRider made that list, but no matter.


So I guess I need to add some rides:

- Mystic Manor

- Hair Raiser

- Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey

- Projekt Helix

- Kumba

- Gravity Max

- Incredible Hulk

- New Texas Giant

- Gold Striker

Knocked out a handful of my highest-priority new parks this year, but still have plenty more to go. Currently my list includes any park in the US with at least one wooden coaster as well as most parks owned by a major corporation. There are a couple exceptions plus some other interesting parks I have yet to add to the list.


25 parks make the official list...and most are helpfully in the middle of nowhere!


Arnolds Park

Bay Beach Amusement Park

Beech Bend

Belmont Park

Camden Park

Cliff's Amusement Park

Darien Lake

Disney's Animal Kingdom

Disney's Hollywood Studios


Family Kingdom Amusement Park

Frontier City

Fun Spot America


Lakemont Park

Legoland California

Legoland Florida

Magic Kingdom

Martin's Fantasy Island

Michigan's Adventure


Stricker's Grove

Universal Studios Hollywood

Waterville USA

Wild Adventures

This is a very obscure Bucket List item. But...


I want to live long enough to see (and ride!) whatever they put in the

currently big un-used corner of Tokyo Disney Sea! It's located between

Port Discovery and the Lost River Delta sections of the park.


Who can tell, how long from now? But it's a big space, worthy of

something like Expedition:Everest, etc.


I'm hopin'


What the space looks like from the monorail going around it, before getting to TDS Station.


Here's what it looks like, inside the park. So much space. So many possibilities. (o:

I have done many of the east coast parks and most of the California parks, and a few in the mid-west, but there are also parks that have built new coasters since I last visited that I would want to hit again to take in all the new stuff.


At the top of my list for parks in general:

BGT - I haven't been to this park since the Carter administration! Yeah, most members of this forum probably weren't even born the last time I visited BGT.

WDW - Let's put it this way - the last time I visited that park, Pac-Man was the hottest video game out there (and if you didn't have an Atari, you had to play it in an arcade). And, that 3-d Michael Jackson movie was the newest thing in Epcot.

SFMM - haven't been there since 01', when the original X was brand new.


There are some other parks I'd like to re-visit in various areas, but these three are tops. The good news is I am planning a trip to WDW in 2014 and hopefully I can also hit BGT.


As for parks I've never been to:


Any of the southern/mid-western parks I've missed - those parks located in Texas and Missouri especially. I also have yet to do any of the new England parks - never been further northeast than NJ to ride coasters. And I'd also like to have some non-US credits under my belt. I may be able to also get to Canada's Wonderland this coming summer, so I may be able to remedy that problem soon. I'd also like to leave the whole continent behind to get some credits in Europe at some point. I have been out of the country several times, but never got to do any coastering.


As for specific coasters, other than those that are found at the parks that I have mentioned, the ones I'd like to ride probably aren't as realistic as far as me actually getting to do them, but I can hope. I'd like to be able to hit some of the parks in Japan to do some of those coasters (like Dodonpa, since I did get to ride its defunct cousin, Hypersonic), and I'd like to get to ride an Intamin Mega-lite, since I hear a lot about those but sadly there are none in North America. I'd also like to ride the Ferrari coaster in Dubai, but I can't imagine I will ever be able to get there (I guess that's one good thing about living in North America - while we don't have the world's fastest coaster, we do have the world's two tallest coasters).

To add to my obscure post before,

(previous page w/photos!)

I also want to be able to come to back to

both Hong Kong Disneyland and Shanghai DL,

after it opens in 2015, as they've had

some more time to build on, etc.


Hong Kong already has. Outside the berm.

And is adding Marvel in a few years.

I hope SDL will do the same after it opens.


And I hope I am still around to go to it all, lol.

Bay Beach



Western Playland



Frontier City



Elitch Garden



I still have copy of US coasters built in the pat 3 years to ridebut I'll get to them all.


As far as parks outside the US, with major coasters, the bucket list is as follows:

Ferrari World - Formula Rossa

Alton Towers - Smiler

Port Aventura - Shambala

Grona Lund - Twister

Liseberg - Helix

Connyland - yes, I do want to ride their stupid Pax coaster
