I'll try my best to write this list in the order in which they closed.


Deja Vu at SFMM (although I have ridden it as Goliath, so I guess this doesn't count?)

Disaster Transport

Perilous Plunge (I know, technically not a coaster, but still a large scale attraction)

Original Colossus at SFMM

Mean Streak

Boomerang at Knott's




A lot of these are Cedar Fair, but in the case of Mean Streak and Boomerang, their respective replacements are leaps and bounds better.


Add Vortex and Volcano to this list. Vortex I don't mind so much, good riddance. But Volcano

Wacky Soap Box Racers/Motorcycle Chase--Knott's (probably the one I miss the most)

Corkscrew--Knott's (now at Silverwood)

Boomerang--Knott's (probably the one I miss the least)

Windjammer--Knott's (also not missed)

Volcano: The Blast Coaster--Kings Dominion

Drachen Fire--Busch Gardens Williamsburg

Big Bad Wolf--Busch Gardens Williamsburg


Son of Beast--Kings Island (hmm--come to think of it, I'd probably rather ride Knott's old Boomerang than this one again)

Without rehashing the same general, a couple thoughts on this:


The Ones Since Removed:

The Great Adventure of my Youth: Since I started riding there in ‘89, Lightnin’ Loops, Scream Machine, The Chiller, Viper and Rolling Thunder have left. (Ultra Twister was already SBNO but I finally got on the model at Nagashima last summer) I realize they’ve added substantial rides but the fact it has changed so much since my childhood has not made me not go back since 2011. I still have never ridden Ka. I was going to finally plan to go back this year for the single rail.


Interestingly in the same frame since I started going to Hershey (since ’96) they’ve developed at pace as Great Adventure. Wildcat, Great Bear, Lightnin’ Racer, Storm Runner, Fahrenheit, Skyrush and now Candymonium without losing a major coaster.


The same market, Dorney has been more in-line proportionally with their smaller scale redevelopment. Pulling out as they go: Lazer, Hercules and the inverted ‘rang I’m not sorry I missed.



Everything CP lost since the mid-aughts, but no great losses for the trades.

Even though it’s on the opposite coast Magic Mountain has pulled out four rides since my rare visit there (Lantern, Colossus, Déjà vu & Psyclone). Flashback never ran.


The Ones I am really happy I had the opportunity to ride:

Son of Beast, PKI’s Vortex and the wood of Geauga Lake. The Wild Mouse at Blackpool. The Dania Beach Hurricane. The Starliner while it was at Cypress. Dueling Dragons.


The Ones I kick myself for missing, dragging my feet on where I definitely had a realistic option to get there:

The Big Bad Wolf & Volcano (missing them each by a year).


I wasn’t in a position (or a mindset) to consider flying across the country on a month’s notice to visit AstroWorld at the announcement of its demise. If the same situation happened (Pre-COVID) today, I would have.


The One’s I want to get to that I fear are somewhat endangered:

Dragon Mountain (and the Arrow at Darien Lake). The quirky coasters of Frontier City. For one more ride on Lightnin’ Loops (although I guess it’s not imminently going anywhere since they just built it a roof)

In order of when I first rode


-Ragin' Cajun at Six Flags Great America: It was fun those few rides I got when I was like 9-10, though Reverchons generally aren't good rides so I'm not really jonesing to get back to it.

-Dragon Challenge (both sides) at Islands of Adventure: God, reminding me of this ride is one hell of a way to bring down my mood. A front row ride I got on Chinese Fireball back in 2015 is still one of my fondest "early" coaster memories

-Georgia Cyclone at Six Flags Over Georgia: Only one ride on it, but what a horrible experience that was. Still one of the most painful and shitty, yet slow wooden coasters I've ridden to date.

-Mean Streak at Cedar Point: Don't know if I miss it per se, but it wasn't as bad as the entire enthusiast community made it out to be over the years. Rough, yes for sure, but nothing brutal, and I've ridden worse woodies.

-Firehawk at Kings Island: Not necessarily sad about it but another ride would've been fun. I enjoyed it more than Superman at my home park.

-Vortex at Kings Island: Lol good riddance.

-Green Lantern at Six Flags Magic Mountain: Fuck this ride. Hopefully it goes back to its prime form in Montreal.

-Dragon Wagon at Indiana Beach: It was a kiddie coaster.

-Dragon at Adventureland: I will miss this one. I enjoyed it more than most, but found it to be very intense and not all that rough aside from a consistent, but not bad shaking.

Dragon Mountain (and the Arrow at Darien Lake).


Viper isnt going anywhere as long as the park is around. Its still popular, is relatively smooth for an Arrow, and was the parks iconic coaster until ROS came around (and arguably still may be). Its sentimental to the area as many peoples first adult coaster. It also had the record for inversions for a while after it was built. I guess never say never applies but I think it would be extremely bad PR for them to remove it unless it was being immediately replaced.


Back to the topic:

Big Bad Wolf


Dueling Dragons

Nightmare at Phantom Cave

Primeval Whirl


Disaster Transport

Might be one or more from CW but I dont know what theyve taken out since 1999.
