Bump. I was thinking about this thread, so I figure I would update mine.

2011: Green Lantern: First Flight
2012: Manta (SWSD)
2013: Coast Rider, YOLOcoaster
2014: Banshee
2015: Twisted Colossus
2016: Joker (SFGAdv), retracked GhostRider
2017: Mystic Timbers
2018: HangTime, Electric Eel, Railblazer
2019: Copperhead Strike, Firebird at SFA (if you count that), and West Coast Racers if it opens in 2019 lol

As for 2020 rides, I think the only guaranteed one is Mako at SWSD. I want to get back to Ohio and ride Orion, but that's just a dream at this point.
Steel: 176 / Wood: 32 / Total: 208
Home Parks: Knott's (when home), Lagoon (at school)
Favorite Coaster: Intimidator 305

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

I rode Maxx Force, Meow Wolf Kaleidescope at Elitch, and Phoenix at Adventureland this year, all of which were fun rides.

Welp, I can add Tigris to my list.

Sadly, the only one I can add for 2019. 2019 was full of visiting parks that we hadn’t been to together before, rather than traveling to parks we had been to together just because said park built a new ride.

2020 However, is going to be heavily “new coaster” geared.
Bigger is not always better.

Is my pee supposed to be this color?

Well, I'm not sure if I've posted in this thread before, but regardles, I got in Yukon Striker today, to add to my list (which also includes Behemoth, at CW!) Such an amazing coaster on its own merit, regardless of its type! We were all blown away by it! Easily the best Dive Coaster we've ridden!

I initially thought that I didn't have a whole lot for this, but now I realize that in 2014, I did Seven Dwarfs Mine Train, InvadR at BGW in 2017, and Twisted Timbers at KD as well as Slinky Dog Dash at Hollywood Studios in 2018.

Of course, Steel Curtain is at my home park.

Since I couldn't find a thread for rides I've ridden in their final season, I'll add them here:

2017
Curse of DarKastle, Busch Gardens Williamsburg
Georgia Cyclone, Six Flags over Georgia
Stinger, Dorney Park

2018
Witches' Wheel, Cedar Point
Firehawk, Kings Island
Volcano, Kings Dominion :cry:

2020 opening plans will be Pantheon, Jersey Devil, whatever RMC Gwazi will be known as, whatever the new coaster at Coney Island will be, and hopefully Orion.
