Does anyone keep some sort of a "Coaster Log"?

Saturday, December 8, 2001 10:12 PM
I keep a "Roller Coaster Log" in one of those Penway Composition books. The first page when you open up is a Table of Contents. Then the next pages has a roller coaster on each one (Pictures, specs, and a review). I am hoping to fill it up but right now I only have about 30 in there, so I better get riding! Does anyone else keep some sort of scrapbook or log? Or am I a loner? :)

I keep my track record here at CB, and my memories in my head and videos and pictures I have saved through the past few years.

Yeah, a buddy of mine (and fellow 'Buzzer) had a little log for ech time he rode a coaster (I wont call him out, but you know who you are ;)). However, tht is *WAY* too organized for me. I'm too much of a 'free-spirit' to be so meticulously anal about coaster rides. I *barely* keep my track record updated (Come to think of it, I think it's wrong even now).

I begun to make a coaster log, which has a page designated to each coaster i've been on with a pic of the coaster, statistic, my personal review of it etc.  Unforunately my project was haulted when my piece of crap printer broke.

I have a list in my notebook, it's not very organized, just what coaster, a guess on when I rode it (I had to go from memory), and some funny comments.

What I have done this year I have created a coaster photo album were I keep all my pictures of coasters in one album which currently has over 111 coasters in it plus I have printed out my track record from coasterbuzz and put it on the first page. I have added Worlds Of Fun & 6Flags St. Louis to the album. This year alone I have been to about 18parks which was more than I expected.

That is not a bad idea.  I think I'll start one.

I'm another one who keeps track of this stuff in an Excel spreadsheet, including the following: coaster name, park, city, state, type, designer/manufacturer, status (operating, defunct, etc), year built, year first run at current location (if moved), last year run (if defunct/removed), date of my first ride, number of pre-1999 rides (estimate), 1999 rides, 2000 rides, 2001 rides, and Grade. I gave up keeping track of a rating (1,2,3,4,5…63,64,65) because first, my tastes can change from one visit to the next, and second, I hate comparing different classes of coasters.

I don't keep a log, but I do have photo albums for coaster pictures only, in which I write info about the coasters.

I do have a spreadsheet for all the movies I see in the theater, with my "star rating," where I saw it, who with, etc.

I am into rating coasters, movies, etc. but I don't keep a log per se on coasters.  I do have many photo albums that have coaster photos in them along with whatever trip I was taking at the time.  I get more pics in Japan for some reason, and never any in the states.  I have only 2 pics of SFMM, and 3 of KBF.  I don't have any of any other park or coaster I ridden, and that is a lot.  Last year on a trip to Silverwood, I took 3 rolls of pictures, and got home only to find them ruined because the camera had a light leak that overexposed all the film........argh.  I had really nice pics of Tremors on-ride too.

These are good pics of me, though

I keep a track record on this site and also photo albums.  I tend to write my trip reports up in Word and save those, since they are usually pretty thorough.

The funny thing is, Jeremy COULD be referring to me, but not necessarily, since I know plenty of folks who keep track with even more detail than I do.  (I know Jeff thinks I'm a freak in this regard, too ;) )

I keep a track record, and started lap counting last year out of curiosity..
