Every time I read someone's answers that DON'T say that Phoenix is their favorite bird coaster, I cry on the inside.

Have not ridden Phoenix yet, so that's my reasoning. I was only going off of what I've ridden

I was going to read this entire thread but gave up after about 10-15...

This year was definitely the "year least traveled" due to our wedding and other stuff going on, but without further adeu...

1. Name 3 of your favorite roller coasters, but not your top 3.
That doesn't make sense. lol? Here are 3 random coasters I like:
-- Verbolten
-- Raven
-- Silver Comet

2. About how many different parks did you visit in 2018?

First off let me say I have a really bad memory. Like. Really bad. To quote my wife: "Alan cannot remember what he did yesterday but he can remember the phone number to order Phantom of the Opera tickets for Toronto back in 1999. #416-872-2222"

Based on looking at my wife's Facebook feed....
Great Adventure
Cedar Point
Great Escape
Darien Lake
Fantasy Island (ny)
Kings Island
Kings Dominion
Busch Williamsburg

3. Which 2018 park visit was your favorite?
Probably Kings Dominion because we went on I305 at LEAST 8 times in a row in the back seat without getting up and I felt like I was in another dimension on that 8th ride. HOLY POOP.

4. Your favorite 2018 park addition (ride, food, show, etc)?
BEHOLD! the new haunt at Fantasy Island... MIDWAY MAYHEM!

Image

5. What ride exceeded your expectations the most in 2018?
Steel Vengeance?

Runner up: "I was not strapped tight enough on Firehawk so I was floating around that seat like a chicken on a rotisserie." - My Wife

6. Best meal/food at a park in 2018?
Coney BBQ at Kings Island, surprisingly. Off the top of my head.

7. What was your favorite new coaster of 2018 NOT made by RMC or Larson?
I don't think I rode any that weren't RMCs? Oh wait!! That new one at Darien Lake (I honestly can't remember its name)

8. Name one park you will definitely visit in 2019.
I would like to go back to Carowinds and Dollywood but probably won't happen. I would also like to visit Texas parks, but that won't happen. I bought tickets for Holiday World and Kennywood already... so those, for sure.

9. Best ride themed to a bird?
Skyhawk (CANADA'S WONDERLAND)

10. Lamest ride/coaster you rode in 2018?
Wonder Mountains Guardian... only because I think all 4 times I rode it the guns were non-functional and the projectors were all out of sync/not working properly...

11. What roller coaster currently sits at the top of your bucketlist? (degree of difficulty: NOT a new-for-2019 ride)
Any new RMC. There are some opening in 2020, too, right? :-P

12. What new-for-2019 ride or coaster are you most looking forward to?
Probably copperhead strike. It has some maverick-ness to it.

13. Name the first totally middle-of-the-road (not bad/not great) park that comes to mind.
Darien Lake

14. You're in Orlando and magically have a 1-hour ERT session on 1 coaster of your choice at any park in the city. You choose...
Montu? Maybe Mako, but I haven't been on it yet... Or maybe Manta? ANYTHING THAT BEGINS WITH THE LETTER M!!

15. Holiday In The Park vs. Winterfest. Who reigns supreme?
Have only been too GADV HITP and no winterfest yet. Though I hear Wonderland is on the table this year.

16. Mystic Timbers mystery shed or Wicker Man fire infusion?
I like fire.

17. Which Six Flags have you been to most recently?
Great Adventure. Technically Darien Lake.

18. Intamin or Schwarzkopf? You may only choose one.
Intamin for sure

19. Battle of Kings Coasters: Island or Dominion? Pick one.
Dominion edges it out with TT

20. What was the longest you waited for a ride/coaster in 2018?
STEEL VENGEANCE -- maybe 2.5 hours was the longest one?

21. What roller coaster have you ridden more than any other?
It's probably Leviathan at Wonderland overall, or Raven at Holiday World, because I marathoned the crap out of it the few times I've been.

22. Best drop tower under 150 feet?
Demon drop or tower of terror

23. Maverick or Millennium Force? (If you haven't been to CP, pick what you want to ride more)
Maverick, no question. Though I did start to appreciate MF a little more this year.

24. Log flumes or sky rides? You can only choose one.
I like sky rides if they have a purpose (Cedar Point's is probably the dumbest to exist, sorry Bill). I have a new appreciation for Log Flumes after riding Dudley and Knott's @ Halloween.

25. What are 3 things you enjoying doing at your home park other than riding rides?
I will call CP and CW my home parks since I go multiple times every year
1) Brew & BBQ
2) Brew and BBQ
3) Brew + BBQ

26. What is your second favorite Cedar Fair park and why?
DAMN... tough one... probably Knott's? I just love the atmosphere it's so unlike any other Cedar Fair park. Plus BOYSENBERRY EVERYTHING!!! (except lemonade, which is a missing demographic -- we have to make it ourselves ;))

27. What is your home park and give us two good reasons why we should pay it a visit.
TECHNICALLY Darien Lake and Fantasy Island as I own passes for 2019... Silver Comet is a top tier coaster that gets overlooked.

28. Launch or Lift?
Mmmmm... Lunch. I mean Launch.

29. Did you buy fast pass at all in 2018?
Many times

30. What is your least favorite wooden coaster?

Image

Honestly I rode it for the first time in a while and I REALLY enjoyed it!!

"I honestly thought it derailed" -- my wife

31. Disney fanboys: cool or cult?
I like Disney but I think some people are waaayyy out there in their love for the strangest things. Like waiting 4 hours to meet a man in a suit.

32. Best Batman themed ride?
Uhhhh...

33. Name something that tend to take home from parks that you didn't bring with you.
Sweaty balls

34. Best wooden coaster over 110 feet tall? (rcdb will help you)
Not looking it up. I think Raven is probably 95, or 109, or something dumb.

35. Have you ever been hit with something (loose change/a tree/vomit/etc) while riding something?
1. Long ago I hit a support with my hand out of the first helix on SFDL Ride of Steel (because my dumbass wanted to see if it was possible)
2. Trees on Sheikra and SFDL viper

36. Skywarps: credits or no? State your case.
Is that the thing that opened at SFDK? I don't think so.

37. Turkey legs: nah or yaaaaassssss?
Depends on where it's from. Universal? Yessss. SEAS? Nooooooo.

Honerable mention is the pork shank cart at BGW though I haven't seen it since my one visit a few years ago :( -- probably the best thing I've ever eaten in a non Disney park.

38. What is the most recent B&M that you rode?
Dominator? Ironically I think that was also the first B&M I've ever been on, back at Geauga Lake. Maybe not.

39. You can eat nothing but corn dogs, churros or funnel cake for the next 48 hours, which do you choose?
Churros, 100%

40. Post a great on-ride shot of you from 2018.

1. Name 3 of your favorite roller coasters, but not your top 3. Great Bear (coaster that got me into coasters, and it's still great), Superman: RoS (coaster I've ridden the most), Nitro (Tonssss of rides also, and great memories)

2. About how many different parks did you visit in 2018? 25?

3. Which 2018 park visit was your favorite? A solo visit to KD in April when the park was dead. Total bliss and freedom. What a cathartic day.

4. Your favorite 2018 park addition (ride, food, show, etc)? Gotta be Steel Vengeance

5. What ride exceeded your expectations the most in 2018? Wonder Mountain Guardian and Rip Ride Rockit. I had zero expectations for the first, and it was super fun. I had low expectations for the latter, and it was not bad at all!

6. Best meal/food at a park in 2018? Didn’t really have one. The Buffalo Chicken Sandwich at Knott’s was good. Also some of the Mac and Cheese bowls at KD were not bad. I'd also include a boozy lunch at the Friday's in CP EDIT:I totally forgot about craft beer and food festival at SWO in Nov!! That was the best.

7. What was your favorite new coaster of 2018 NOT made by RMC or Larson? New for me, or new for 2018? New for 2018, I’d go with Tantrum, I guess. New for me would be Skyrush

8. Name one park you will definitely visit in 2019. Adventureland

9. Best ride themed to a bird? It isn’t yet, but it most certainly will be… FIREBIRD COASTER

10. Lamest ride/coaster you rode in 2018? Time Warp. Leading candidate for worst coaster ever.

11. What roller coaster currently sits at the top of your bucketlist? (degree of difficulty: NOT a new-for-2019 ride) Nemesis

12. What new-for-2019 ride or coaster are you most looking forward to? Steel Curtain probably

13. Name the first totally middle-of-the-road (not bad/not great) park that comes to mind. Dorney Park

14. You're in Orlando and magically have a 1-hour ERT session on 1 coaster of your choice at any park in the city. You choose... Gringott’s would get old after 15 minutes, but Mako never would.

15. Holiday In The Park vs. Winterfest. Who reigns supreme? Coasters running > less coasters running

16. Mystic Timbers mystery shed or Wicker Man fire infusion? FYRE

17. Which Six Flags have you been to most recently? America

18. Intamin or Schwarzkopf? You may only choose one. I’d miss the hell out of both, but I’d miss Intamin more.

19. Battle of Kings Coasters: Island or Dominion? Pick one. KD. Barely.

20. What was the longest you waited for a ride/coaster in 2018? 90 mins for Steel Vengeance

21. What roller coaster have you ridden more than any other? Ever? Almost certainly Superman: RoS at SFA, with hundreds of laps. In 2018 it was I305 with an even 40 laps.

22. Best drop tower under 150 feet?XScream at Waldameer

23. Maverick or Millennium Force? (If you haven't been to CP, pick what you want to ride more) Maverick

24. Log flumes or sky rides? You can only choose one. Sky Rides. I’m a bitch, and don’t like getting wet.

25. What are 3 things you enjoying doing at your home park other than riding rides? Leaving to go to the bar. (SFA)

26. What is your second favorite Cedar Fair park and why? Cedar Point, because Kings Dominion is way more accessible to me.

27. What is your home park and give us two good reasons why we should pay it a visit. SFA, and you shouldn’t. Just kidding; Superman & Wild One

28. Launch or Lift? Everything else being equal, then launch.

29. Did you buy fast pass at all in 2018? Just one at Canada’s Wonderland, and it was soooo worth it.

30. What is your least favorite wooden coaster? Predator.

31. Disney fanboys: cool or cult? Depends. Leaning towards cult though.

32. Best Batman themed ride? BTR

33. Name something that tend to take home from parks that you didn't bring with you. Blisters

34. Best wooden coaster over 110 feet tall? (rcdb will help you) The Bull

35. Have you ever been hit with something (loose change/a tree/vomit/etc) while riding something? A long time ago, I got hit with a plastic skull on the haunted hay ride at SFA

36. Skywarps: credits or no? State your case. If it rolls and coasts, it’s a roller coaster, and therefor a credit. It definitely rolls, but I’m not sure if it coasts. So I can’t answer.

37. Turkey legs: nah or yaaaaassssss? Nah

38. What is the most recent B&M that you rode? KUMBA

39. You can eat nothing but corn dogs, churros or funnel cake for the next 48 hours, which do you choose? Corn Dogs is the only option that’s food. The other two would probably make me sick before I even began to feel full.
