Morgan's Wonderland

Sea World San Antonio

Silver Dollar City

Six Flags Fiesta Texas

Six Flags over Texas

Six Flags St. Louis

Worlds of Fun

ZDT's

 

2. Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Coaster (of the new-to-me variety)

 

3. Outlaw Run, Wonder Woman Golden Lasso Coaster, Jersey Devil

 

4. Giant Barn Swing at SDC. Still hard to beat.

 

5. Outlaw Run if we're counting ride height and not drop height, otherwise Wonder Woman.

 

6. Mr. Freeze

 

7. Dollywood

 

8. Silver Dollar City, probably around 20.

 

9. That's a hard one, since things are kinda iffy right now, but if everything works out how I'd like, then Busch Gardens Tampa.

 

10. Dollywood

 

11. La Vibora at Six Flags over Texas. The only other bobsled coaster I've ever been on is Flying Turns at Knoebels...so...yeah, bit of a step down.

 

12. You're evil. Probably Bizarro, that one's pretty good.

 

13. Wonder Woman

 

14. Skillet and wassail at SDC during Christmas.

 

15. I don't know, I have a pretty good one. Dollywood, Knoebels, or Hershey maybe. Basically anything else would be a step down in quality or a big step up in price.

 

16. Iron Gwazi

 

17. SDC

 

18. SDC's Mill Restaurant

 

19. Worlds of Fun

 

20. No

 

21. Skyrush

 

22. Phantasialand and Tokyo Disney

 

23. Superman Krypton Coaster

 

24. Hmm, I don't know, I usually skip the terrible ones. I guess it would be the couple of times I rode a Miner Mike's with my kids when they were like 3. Not really a credit whore thing though in those circumstances.

 

25. Cedar Point in 2018

 

26. 45 minutes for NTaG

 

27. Silver Dollar City and Six Flags

 

28. I keep telling you to come down to SDC...

 

29. Iron Gwazi

 

30. No idea how many times, but it's definitely Thunderation. 27 years of riding that at least once each visit, and back when it was the only big coaster, it was a lot more than once.

 

31. Valleyfair. Minnesota has a lot more to do in that area.

 

32. SDC's cashew chicken waffle cone. Highlight of Festival of Wonder, so glad they brought it back for Christmas.

 

33. Haven't been on either, so maybe Kumba? Otherwise it's definitely Montu.

 

34. Hmm, hard. I like most wooden coasters. I guess Thunderhawk at Dorney, Timber Wolf at WoF, Boss at SFStL.

 

35. SDC's cinnamon bread.

 

36. Skyrush clone.

 

37. Tron Coaster at WDW

 

38. Busch Gardens Tampa, Universal Studios Florida, Walt Disney World

 

39. Coasterbill, Philrad71, Nrthwnd

 

40. I'm usually the one with the camera, so I don't think I have any. Definitely don't have any posing with a sign.

Phantasialand

 

10. Kennywood or Dollywood? Pick one

 

Dollywood

 

11. What ride/coaster disappointed you the most in 2019?

 

West Coast Racers because it wasn't open for me in December.

 

In terms of how a coaster rode, I guess I'll say Tonnerre de Zeus. I did still like it, but it was disappointing. That coaster has always been atop my bucket list because of my love of CCIs, but it sounded like death and really crawled through the second half of the layout.

 

12. You're at Great Adventure. You play that racist-ish gong game and win a one hour ERT session for you and your friends on ONE coaster of your choice. But damn! El Toro, Kingda Ka and Nitro are all down! So you ride...

 

Does Nitro ever go down?

 

I'll pick Joker. I actually prefer Green Lantern and Batman, but my legs couldn't take those rides for an hour straight.

 

13. What is the last coaster that changed your top 10?

 

Coaster at PNE Playland

 

14. Most recent park food you ate.

 

Fried chicken bowl at Six Flags Great Adventure

 

15. What park do you wish was your home park?

 

I'd want a park with great food and minimal lines. Knoebels would be perfect except it doesn't have a season pass. So instead I'll say Silver Dollar City.

 

16. What 2020 attraction do you have the biggest boner for?

 

West Coast Racers Star Wars Rise of the Resistance

 

17. What park will you visit next?

 

Disney's Hollywood Studios

 

18. Favorite breakfast before a day at a park?

 

Waffles

 

19. Cedar Fair park you visited most recently?

 

Knott's Berry Farm

 

20. Was it awesome?

 

It was until I learned how bad the rain policy is at Knott's on the 5 days a year it rains in Southern California.

 

21. Skyrush or Candymonium?

 

Most likely Skyrush, but I won't rule Candymonium out if it has a better finale than Mako.

 

22. What 2 overseas parks do you want to visit the most?

 

Hong Kong Disneyland and Shanghai Disneyland

 

23. The best B&M coaster you rode in 2019 was?

 

Fury 325

 

24. What is the saddest/dirtiest credit whore thing you've ever done?

 

Getting the Orient Express credit from Rockwell Shows. The operator wouldn't let me ride it at one location, but a different operator let me ride it at another location.

 

25. Last time you bought fast pass?

 

If MaxPass counts, early December. Otherwise, it was at Dollywood during Smoky Mountain Christmas in November.

 

26. What was the longest you waited for a ride/coaster in 2019?

 

For one ride- 3 hours (including breakdowns) for Hagrid's.

For multiple rides- 7 hours for 5 rides on PNE Playland's Coaster in that unshaded hellhole of a queue

 

27. What season passes/membership do you currently have?

 

Six Flags, Cedar Fair, Canobie Lake Park, Fun Spot

 

28. If you could go to a park with anyone on this forum for a day who would it be and to what park?

 

Robb because it probably means we have an awesome ERT session somewhere. I'll go with Cedar Point because of how rare it is to actually be able to marathon Steel Vengeance.

 

29. Battle of the Busch 2020: Iron Gwazi or Pantheon - which would you rather ride?

 

Iron Gwazi

 

30. Most times you've ridden one coaster (rough estimate or exact if you're a super nerd)

 

Superman at Six Flags New England 129 times (I'm a nerd)

 

31. Congrats! You just won passes to spend A WEEK at the park of your choice! Dorney Park or Valley Fair? Pick one and why.

 

Dorney Park. I'm close enough to Knoebels, Hersheypark, and Six Flags Great Adventure.

 

32. Talk about a park food that knocked your socks off

 

The Knoebels pierogis. I got the wrong ones at the Round Stand and thought they were just ok, so I never understood the hype. A few years later, I tried the incredible buttery ones from the Roast Beef Stand thanks to coasterbill's pierogi map.

And my life was changed.

 

33. Pick one: Kumba or Montu

 

Montu

 

34. What are your three least favorite woodies?

 

150) Coaster Express, 149) Wildcat (Lake Compounce), 148) Leap the Dips

 

35. Best sweet snack at a park (degree of difficulty: not Dollywoods cinnamon bread)

 

I hate sweets. So I'm going to cheat and say the bacon pretzel fury from Busch Gardens Tampa.

 

36. Kings Island is on the phone and they want you to decide what is going in the old Vortex spot. What do you add?

 

An actual giga*

 

37. What roller coaster currently sits at the top of your bucketlist? (degree of difficulty: NOT a new-for-2020 ride)

 

T-Express

 

38. Name 3 parks you want to visit in the next 3 years.

 

Everland, Shanghai Disneyland, Hong Kong Disneyland

 

39. Name 3 other forum members you hope fill this out.

 

The first 3 people who browse this topic and walk away without posting.

 

40. Show us how cool you are by posting a picture of yourself on a coaster or in front of coaster. Bonus points if you're holding a sign with a number on it like the nerd you are.

 

Slinky.thumb.jpg.b9128ad9d1787bb81bd4008e7a06c60a.jpg

 

* Orion is going to be awesome. And honestly, I don't care what we call it. But I wouldn't mind if the park added another giga. The land is way too compact for a traditional giga, so let's build I305 the sequel.

2. Best new-for-2019 (or new-to-you-in-2019) ride?

3. Name the first 3 coasters that come to mind.

9. What park are you most looking forward to visiting in 2020?

 

10. Kennywood or Dollywood? Pick one

 

Oh, that's tough. Oddly enough, never had a Kennywood Season Pass despite them being super affordable and living within 30 minutes of it. I currently have a Dollywood Season pass. I guess that maybe answers the question? I love em both.

 

11. What ride/coaster disappointed you the most in 2019?

 

I would say Jack Rabbit at Seabreeze. It wasn't like a massive disappointment, but it certainly fell short. The trains just seem so heavy and clunky and the ride just kind of didn't do much for me.

International Food Court at Knoebels.

 

19. Cedar Fair park you visited most recently?

 

Knott's Berry Farm

Absolutely! First time visit. Went in November and did everything! Wonderful time.

 

21. Skyrush or Candymonium?

 

Probably Skyrush. But it has been a minute since I've been to Hershey. Hoping to change that this year once Candymonium opens.

 

22. What 2 overseas parks do you want to visit the most?

 

Hmm. Europa and Phantasialand.

 

23. The best B&M coaster you rode in 2019 was?

Got in line for a kiddie coaster, asked a small child to ride (w/o approaching the parents), rode in the front seat with kid, and walked past the parents. I regret it and... it won't happen again.

 

25. Last time you bought fast pass?

 

I haven't. I don't begrudge folks for doing so. I generally don't go on days where it is truly warranted.

Iran Gwazi

 

30. Most times you've ridden one coaster (rough estimate or exact if you're a super nerd)

31. Congrats! You just won passes to spend A WEEK at the park of your choice! Dorney Park or Valley Fair? Pick one and why.

 

Valley Fair; never been

 

32. Talk about a park food that knocked your socks off

 

Disney Sea had some really fun stuff!

 

33. Pick one: Kumba or Montu

 

KUMBA

 

34. What are your three least favorite woodies?

 

Off the top of my head; I hated Predator, Mighty Canadian Minebuster, and maybe Hurler at Carowinds.

 

35. Best sweet snack at a park (degree of difficulty: not Dollywoods cinnamon bread)

 

Knoebels Waffle Ice Cream Sandwich

 

36. Kings Island is on the phone and they want you to decide what is going in the old Vortex spot. What do you add?

11. What ride/coaster disappointed you the most in 2019?

Diving Coaster Vanish at CosmoWorld. . after seeing it for years online, I wasn't expecting it to be so rough, and just not fun. it was 1 and done.

Iron Gwazi

 

30. Most times you've ridden one coaster (rough estimate or exact if you're a super nerd)

31. Congrats! You just won passes to spend A WEEK at the park of your choice! Dorney Park or Valley Fair? Pick one and why.

Great Adventure. A half dozen...ish?

Universal. First time!

 

10. Kennywood or Dollywood? Pick one

Dollywood because I've never been there.

 

11. What ride/coaster disappointed you the most in 2019?

Coasters were good to me in 2019.

 

12. You're at Great Adventure. You play that racist-ish gong game and win a one hour ERT session for you and your friends on ONE coaster of your choice. But damn! El Toro, Kingda Ka and Nitro are all down! So you ride...

The Mighty Mysterious Mountain of Skull, duh

Waffle House. Followed by power beers in the lot.

 

19. Cedar Fair park you visited most recently?

20. Was it awesome?

Mostly, yes. But it was maybe my least favorite visit. It was October and it was like... hot AF and to top it off I had the tail end of a super sh*tty cold. I feel like I didn't ride that much. I really enjoy our annual autumn Virginia trips and it was like 90 degrees. It did not feel like fall. On the positive tip we had super good BBQ & collard greens from a food truck. It was insanely good and we went back for seconds - just more greens really. It made us poop a lot. Not like bad upset stomach. Just lots of pooping. Twisted Timbers and I305 are super rad. Tollway Terror too.

 

21. Skyrush or Candymonium?

Skyrush, but Candy will probably be just fabulous. You know you're gonna ride it.

 

22. What 2 overseas parks do you want to visit the most?

Liseberg, Phantasialand

 

23. The best B&M coaster you rode in 2019 was?

Mako!

 

24. What is the saddest/dirtiest credit whore thing you've ever done?

25. Last time you bought fast pass?

A few times this year - CP, BGW, KD?

 

26. What was the longest you waited for a ride/coaster in 2019?

Tollway Terror @ KD's Haunt. An hour? Worth it. You can drink in line so we were proper blasted.

 

27. What season passes/membership do you currently have?

BGW Platinum pass, Moreys Wild Pass, SFGadv gold+ membership

 

28. If you could go to a park with anyone on this forum for a day who would it be and to what park?

Gwazi gonna be redic, but gimmie dat Intamin

 

30. Most times you've ridden one coaster (rough estimate or exact if you're a super nerd)

I am definitely over 150 on Nitro and El Toro. I counted to 100 on both and stopped because who gives AF, right? Never counted my Moreys rides but I'm sure I've done Great White Sea Serpent, and Great Nor'easter well into 250+ each. I kinda wish I had an actual count.

 

31. Congrats! You just won passes to spend A WEEK at the park of your choice! Dorney Park or Valley Fair? Pick one and why. Valley Fair is actually high on my bucketlist by default because I really wanna go to MOA and I love Prince so Minneapolis and all that. So definitely that. Isn't Valley Fair the bizarro Cedar Fair park with the Sky Screamer and purple super loop? I'm into that.

Montu!

 

34. What are your three least favorite woodies?

35. Best sweet snack at a park (degree of difficulty: not Dollywoods cinnamon bread)

Deep fried moon pie @ GreatAdv this year was some serious sh*t. Not the best but I can't think of anything else right now. Oh snap. You knwo what? We did the Seaworld Food Fest jawn last year and we had Key Lime Fritters and also a frozen German chocolate cake slushies (with booze in them). Oh and the waffles w/ ice cream @ Knoebels. Can't forget about Kohr Bros down in Wildwood. I guess that deep fried moon pie jammy jammer was the best after all.

 

36. Kings Island is on the phone and they want you to decide what is going in the old Vortex spot. What do you add?

Skyrush cloan

 

37. What roller coaster currently sits at the top of your bucketlist? (degree of difficulty: NOT a new-for-2020 ride)

Zadra. Also Hagrid. Hakugei. Sandy's Blasting Bronco.

1. How many parks did you visit in 2019?

7

 

2. Best new-for-2019 (or new-to-you-in-2019) ride?

Fury 325

 

3. Name the first 3 coasters that come to mind.

Fury 325

Steel Vengeance

Son of Beast

 

4. What was the best flat ride you rode in 2019?

Wow...thinking through this and I skip a lot of flats. Gotta be Drop Tower at KI...I love that thing!

 

5. What is your favorite RMC under 130 feet? (cheat sheet)

I've only ridden 2 RMCs ever so...Twisted Colossus?

 

6. What was the last Premier coaster that you rode?

Flight of Fear at KI

EDIT: Cause I'm an idiot and literally the last roller coaster I rode period was Electric Eel (not sure how I missed that the first time through #fakeenthusiast)

 

7. Name a park you've been to that you're already planning to revisit.

Seaworld San Diego (gotta get on Emperor)

 

8. What is your home park and how many times did you visit in 2019?

"School home" park is Lagoon, went once.

"Home home" park is Kings Island (not counting the Columbus zoo lol) and I went twice.

 

9. What park are you most looking forward to visiting in 2020?

No solid plans yet but I have a SEAS pass so I'm most likely gonna hit up BGT. Never been, and with Iron Gwazi opening I figured it would be a good one to add to my list.

 

10. Kennywood or Dollywood? Pick one

Never been to either but from what I've read Dollywood.

 

11. What ride/coaster disappointed you the most in 2019?

I'm a generally positive person, or at least I've learned to be. The only new big credit that I was severely let down by was Hurler at Carowinds, but it wasn't a bad ride.

 

12. You're at Great Adventure. You play that racist-ish gong game and win a one hour ERT session for you and your friends on ONE coaster of your choice. But damn! El Toro, Kingda Ka and Nitro are all down! So you ride...

I feel like Superman is marathon-able enough but I also think I'm in the minority for picking it.

 

13. What is the last coaster that changed your top 10?

Steel Vengeance. Yep.

 

14. Most recent park food you ate.

Mama Stella's pizza at SWSD.

 

15. What park do you wish was your home park?

Picking solely from the parks I've been to I'd say SFMM. 365 day operations--if I could hit that thing up on off-days I'd be out of my mind living the dream. I would say CP except it's seasonal and usually crowded.

 

16. What 2020 attraction do you have the biggest boner for?

F.L.Y. except with my current financial status I seriously doubt I'll be riding it anytime soon.

 

17. What park will you visit next?

Oof I don't know. Probably SWSD tbh since my grandparents live 5 minutes away and I travel down there frequently.

 

18. Favorite breakfast before a day at a park?

Clif bar. I only say this because it happens way more often than I'd like to admit...I leave my house super early to drive and don't bring food but don't feel like ordering from a restaurant so I just grab one while I'm filling up gas.

 

19. Cedar Fair park you visited most recently?

Cedar Point.

 

20. Was it awesome?

Oh you know it!

 

21. Skyrush or Candymonium?

Imma say Candymonium, mostly cause of that crazy airtime snap thing that I keep seeing in pictures. Looks to be one of the most insane B&M Hypers out there.

 

22. What 2 overseas parks do you want to visit the most?

Nagashima Spaland and Phantasialand

 

23. The best B&M coaster you rode in 2019 was?

Fury 325 no contest

 

24. What is the saddest/dirtiest credit whore thing you've ever done?

Somehow convinced all my friends to ride Puff at Lagoon with me. I owned it super hard, hands up, shouting, having a good time. It ended up being a fun experience for everyone at the expense of my slightly dying inside from embarrassment. But hey, gotta make stories somehow!

 

25. Last time you bought fast pass?

Cedar Point because that place is Ridiculous (it was a TUESDAY and my brother literally skipped school to come with me!!!!)

 

26. What was the longest you waited for a ride/coaster in 2019?

Waited 2 hours for my first ride on Steel Vengeance. It actually kinda ruined the experience...I was dehydrated by the time I got to the ride platform and it was kinda running slow anyway. I came back a couple weeks later and got a flash pass and got 3 redemptive laps on it; the ride now sits comfortably as my #3.

 

27. What season passes/membership do you currently have?

Seaworld parks. Got it in anticipation of taking a trip down to Florida.

 

28. If you could go to a park with anyone on this forum for a day who would it be and to what park?

I only know a couple people here in person. My day at KI with DILinator and RAWKIN was fun...let's do it again but this time at Dollywood?

 

29. Battle of the Busch 2020: Iron Gwazi or Pantheon - which would you rather ride?

Yes.

 

Probably Pantheon tbh...thing looks IN SANE.

 

30. Most times you've ridden one coaster (rough estimate or exact if you're a super nerd)

Diamondback no contest. Rode at least 50 times the first year; I'm sure I'm well over 100 at this point.

Actually now that I think about it Racer may have DB by a ride or two...

oof.

 

31. Congrats! You just won passes to spend A WEEK at the park of your choice! Dorney Park or Valley Fair? Pick one and why.

Dorney. Isn't Dorney better? I've never been to either tbh. But I am kinda a B&M fanboy so I'm sure I'd have plenty of fun on Hydra and Talon.

 

32. Talk about a park food that knocked your socks off

Oooooohhh the turkey leg at SWSD was pretty dang good.

 

33. Pick one: Kumba or Montu

Never ridden either (hopefully that'll change this year). Kumba looks more fun tbh.

 

34. What are your three least favorite woodies?

Excluding kiddie coasters it would be 3)Colossus at SFMM 2)Hurler at Carowinds and 3)Mean Streak at CP. I do have to say RMC and the parks have done a pretty good job weeding out the bad ones.

 

35. Best sweet snack at a park (degree of difficulty: not Dollywoods cinnamon bread)

Gimme a quarter for some gumball machine runts and I'll be perfectly content.

(jk, lol, although that's another guilty pleasure of mine)

Sea salt ice cream at Disneysea is my favorite to date.

 

36. Kings Island is on the phone and they want you to decide what is going in the old Vortex spot. What do you add?

B&M 4D coaster. My ultimate pipe dream.

 

37. What roller coaster currently sits at the top of your bucketlist? (degree of difficulty: NOT a new-for-2020 ride)

Shoot I have a few. But the one ride I've really wanted to try for years but never got around to it (and this is super lame so don't @ me) but SWO's Manta.

 

38. Name 3 parks you want to visit in the next 3 years.

All of them! The most ambitious being Nagashima Spaland, Universal Japan, and Phantasialand.

 

39. Name 3 other forum members you hope fill this out.

Oh gosh is anyone actually reading my answers...

 

40. Show us how cool you are by posting a picture of yourself on a coaster or in front of coaster. Bonus points if you're holding a sign with a number on it like the nerd you are.
