^Why is that sign bad? The DJV at SFGAm is way better than the one at SFOG and I rode both this season. DJV is really a great ride..

 

Also I forgot to post my first and last coaster of the season:

 

First: Montu-BGT

Last: It's not over yet for me! But currently, Montu-BGT.

I don't remember dates too well but...

First: Roar at SFMW

Last: Matterhorn (left side) at DLR

 

Basically I went to SFMW for my school's 8th grade graduation trip in May and then in June I went to Disneyland. Yeah I only went to two parks, but I don't mind, since both trips were a lot of fun. Besides two is better than none.

First:Italian Job Stunt Track at PCW

 

Last: S:ROS at SFDL

 

Hilights:

 

1. This doesn't have to do with a coaster, but it happened on the PCW trip. We watched a show in the hotel room, "100 strangest things found in the human body" and #1 was fetus in fetu. this ended up being a huge joke for the rest of the trip. Also, reading from the bible in fake british accents, and reading a magazine aloud pronouncing things like "sorry" and "about" like Canadians and adding "eh?" to the end of every sentence.

 

2. Riding Skyrider in a downpour. (togo standup at PCW) It was so awesome and disorienting.

 

3. Getting my volare credit. ::dies:: most awful ride ever. Womb Raider... oops i mean Tomb Raider... was my 40th coaster. ::gags:: I couldn't believe that the cars don't stop in the station so you could get in... i did't think i was gonna make it lol

 

4. Riding S:ROS in the dark in the front row with my hands up the entire time. The train before us made a weird chugging sound as it left the station, then got stuck on the lift for a couple minutes. Naturally, we were terrified for our ride lol. Our train made the same noise, then it felt like the track on the first helix was shuddering and we barely made it over the 2nd hill... lol. Very adrenaline-filled. "Well, at least if we valley, we still have our trusty seat belts to protect us!"

First Coaster: Georgia Cyclone opening day

Last coaster: TBR. most likely will be one of the Wild Adventures coasters on ride home from Tampa.

 

#1 highlight of the year would have to be all the hype for goliath before we knew it was goliath. All the markings started popping up and a kind of scavenger hunt started to find all the markings. Its been rumored and we wanted our own for years and finally in 2006 we will get our hyper coaster.

 

#2 I rode my 4th intamin coaster which kind of sucks since im such a big intamin fan. The fourth was Storm Runner, joining Volcano, SROS and Superman The Escape. My #1 goal in 2006 is to double or Triple my intamin count.

 

#3 Going to BGT for the first time. I love that place its not as good as BGW but i still like it a whole lot. Many visits to Tampa are to come.

hmmmmm the years not over i can still get down there for one last trip before my passport expires.

 

^Why is that sign bad? The DJV at SFGAm is way better than the one at SFOG and I rode both this season. DJV is really a great ride..

 

Im not going to get in a Vu war butim pretty sure all the Vu's and Stuntfall are the exact same.

First coaster: GhostRider, Knott's Berry Farm, Friday, March 9

Last coaster: Steel Venom, Valleyfair, Friday, August 19

 

HIGHLIGHTS:

 

-My first major coaster enthusiast event, Solace/West Coast Bash weekend in California. Jerry Dorf, my partner in coaster crime, convinced me to go, and boy did I have a blast! Tripled my coaster count (8 to 24), first visit to California outside of the airports in LA and Frisco, and met lots of people!.

 

-Going to Wisconsin Dells twice for coaster-related functions, and bagging all the credits in the Dells that I could fit into. Hades and Avalanche rock!

 

-Meeting Robb and Elissa in Wisky Dells.

 

-Lunch at Valleyfair Coaster Craze.

 

-Realizing Valleyfair on a Friday morning or holiday Saturday at the open is as close to ERT as you can get.

 

-The entire Minnesota State Fair experience.

First new coaster was Ghostrider at Solace.

Last New Coaster was Batman: The Escape at SFAW late October

 

Highlight of the year was touring Japan and getting stuck on Fujiyama and having to be evacuated from near the top of the lift hill. Missed getting this credit by about 15 feet!
