... You imagine yourself in the future as chief of your favourite local park and you announce a brand spanking new roller-coaster with a mega show (with light effects, fireworks, awesome concept arts...). Since the announcement of Banshee in KI (I really loved that one), I think of this all the time...

When you buy new shorts, you make sure they have zipper cargo pockets for coaster riding.

Haha! Very guilty! Actually, last year before I went on a trip to a few US parks I went looking for both shorts and trousers with zipper pockets (and it was quite tricky!)

I am so guilty of that.

...when you hear the word "vitamin", you think of Intamin.

...you get annoyed when you bring family or friends to a park, and they want to ride a coaster that is bad or not worth it (cough...cough...The Dark Knight Coaster...cough...cough).

...you shout "Take the tunnel!" before driving through a tunnel.

Very true. When I went to portaventura with my friends last month they said they wanted to ride a "weaker" ride first to get them used to it, to which I answered: "NO WAY!!" (as we got to the park as soon as it opened and I wanted to make the most of the small queues). However they insisted and so I took them to furius baco as it doesn't look very intimidating from the lake area

...If you are counting down the days till the ghetto-sketchy-@$$ carnival comes to your town, simply because you don't have coasters nearby & want an early start to the season.

 

...If you recognize that half the footage in a park commercial isn't actually from that park.

If you know why Griffon on Google Earth looks pretty amazing!

 

If you haven't seen it, I would recommend.

Pretty cool

If whenever someone mentions a year you immediately think of a coaster than opened then. For example: 1993 - Kumba!

^ You might be a coaster nerd if one of your goals is to ride all the roller coasters that opened the year you were born

^The only two coasters I've ridden that opened in the year I was born (1996) were terrible: Wildcat at Hershey and Mantis.

Well, at last there's Montu but I haven't been on that one.
