Coaster You've Ridden That is Furthest From Your Home


Recommended Posts

I'll define it as the furthest roller coaster from where you were living at the time but you may have other definitions.  When in doubt, use the "Measure Distance" feature on Google maps, which is accessible by clicking right anywhere on the map

 

For me since I lived in the SF Bay Area, CA, USA at the time (as I've always been), my furthest roller coaster from home is the Supersonic Odyssey at Berjaya Times Square Theme Park in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia at over 8,000 mi (~13,000 km) from my house

Mods can we please edit the title? The English major in me is having a heart attack. "Coaster You've Ridden That is Furthest From Your Home" Please and thanks.  

^Fixed!   Oh, and I may be able to win this one! Offhand my guess would be the time I rode the mall roller coaster in Adelaide, Australia when I lived in Sarasota, FL. Total distance: 9,992.

Living in KCMO and only having ridden USA coasters, I feel disadvantaged here. At the same time, all my flights are short, so.... 😉

This is kind of fun.

I've yet to visit any parks outside the U.S., so for me it's Racer at Kennywood. Steel Curtain is a little further, but was not yet built when I visited in 2018.

It appears that the distances between where I live, and "anywhere in China/Hong Kong" are my longest distances. So....

Grizzly Gulch Runaway Mine Train - Hong Kong Disneyland

10255.83 km ~ 6372.68 miles  :mickey:

Currently it would be 2190 miles. Incredible Hulk or Dragon Challenge would be the coaster. Although in a few weeks it will be either a coaster at Six Flags Great Adventure, or Casino Pier.

I could either go BGT's Montu or WDW's Rock n' Roller Coaster. The first time I rode Montu, I would officially move into my college dorm the next day. So technically, I was still living in the Minneapolis area. Later when I rode it during college, it could also be considered the closest coaster to where I was living at the time. :p 

Rock n' Roller Coaster is the furthest from home on a trip.

Either Zadra or Hyperion at Energylandia. Whichever corner of that large park is farther from the Chicagoland area.

Probably Diamond Python at Merimbula's Magic Mountain in Australia. It's a little less than 10,000 miles from Williamsburg.

It's 1662 miles, either Wild Chipmunk or Cyclone at Lakeside. 

Dag, I'm long overdue for some overseas coastering.

As a European who never left Europe my distance isn't as big as the others 1023.93 KM (636.24 Miles) that being Wildfire in Kolmarden. It was easy to find out which was the furthest, I never actually measured it fun fact to know though, also learned this is the only ride I've ridden that's further then 1000 KM away from me that I've done.
