1995

 

1. Jaguar - KBF (One of my favorites)

2. Space Mountain - DLP (Even though I never rode it yet, it looks to be a well-crafted successor to the original in the US. And I like the original version of the ride more than Mission: 2)

3. Dragon Khan - PortAventura (another ride that looks impressive yet never rode yet)

Holy crap!

 

I thought that the coaster at Hanayashiki Park in Tokyo was the only coaster I had,

as well as the park itself opening in my birth year, 1953. And I had the good fortune to

ride it a number of times, thanks to past TPR Japan tours.

 

But I rechecked (Thankyou RCDB), and lo and behold...I got three!!!

 

Flyer (Canadian National Exhibition, Toronto - now closed)

Little Dipper (Kiddytown. Illinois - now closed)

Roller Coaster (Hayanashiki, Tokyo - still running!)

 

 

(There were actually only four, and the 4th coaster listed, was an "unkown" in... Guatemala!)

Little Dipper (Kiddytown. Illinois - now closed)

Not as closed as you might think. It was relocated to Little Amerricka in Wisconsin. I rode it last summer, and it was incredible. Not just the ride itself, which was fun enough--but the operations, the atmosphere, the whole package combined to make it the absolute most fun I've ever had on a roller coaster.

 

So there you go. Two are still running.

Cool! Good to know. Thanks for the update!

I really didn't expect 1988 to be the oldest third of this board:

 

Shockwave @ SFGAm takes the win out of the coasters opened that year, which honestly was a pretty sad year for coasters that still operate today! I suppose an honorable mention can go to Wolverine Wildcat, and I wouldn't even pick a third place out of that bunch.
