Has anyone even been able to ride twice on a roller coaster without getting off? I have 3 times: Raptor At Cedar Point, my arm was broke and I have to wait an extra long time to ride so they let my friend and I ride twice.
Raging Wolf Bobs At SFO: It was the last ride of the night and the ride never stopped and went to the lift again.
Corkscrew at Geauga Lake: The last few seasons the crew would ask if we wanted to ride again and so we could stay on for only two ride though, This was during the time that the attendance was terrible though.
Shockwave @ SFGAm this summer. It was about 8:55 and they were closing at 9. There was nobody in line but me and two other people. I rode 3 times in a row, 2 in the front seat and 1 in the 2nd seat. Let me tell you, the twisting drop in the front row in pitch black on Shockwave KICKS! It was really great. That's my most memorable one. ------------- Jack, who can't wait for opening day 2001...
I rode Dueling Dragons a couple times in a row with out getting off, 4 times on Fire the 2 on Ice dragon.That was first thing in the morning while everyone else was at the front off the park.
Ive also ridden Kraken 4 times in a row.I had 3 passes that I got from the Portofino hotel when I bought my Sea world tickets there.After the ride I just gave one of the attendants my ticket and back on I went.
I know this isnt a big ride, but Top Gun at PKI. It was really cool. We snuck into the line at the end. Little did me and my friend know that they have a certain # of people in the line at the closing time. Anyway, we rode it twice by ourselves, while the fireworks were goin off, front car. That was cool. Helped that I knew the ride operator.
I got to ride the backwards Racer at PKi three times, only getting up to switch seats, it was late October of 1998 and it had been pouring down rain. It was raining so hard that they closed The BEast cause it couldn`t stop and stopped the Vortex on the lift with people on it for about ten minutes. I also rode Shake Rattle and Roll (flat ride) that same day in a huge downpour. They eventually got the beast open and I rode it and it was awesome!
I got to stay on the Corkscrew at Cedar Point, the Great Noreaster and Sidewinder in Wildwood NJ, and The Great American Scream Machine at SFGR8ADV. All those were because it was closing time. Go to Hershey during their Halloweekends and they will let you stay on as long as you like except for the Great Bear. If someone was in line for the seat I was sitting in I would have to get out and move to another seat. Not a big deal.
I once was last in line for Raging Bull and I got to ride it 4 times in a row. Also when I went to IOA it was a sneak preview and they only let like 900-1,000 people in and I got to ride The Hulk 5 times in a row and same with Dueling Dragons.
Being a regular at Knoebels the Phoenix ride ops usually send the final train of the night around anywhere from 2 to 4 times depending on your enthusiasm at the return to the station.Somtimes almost unbraked! :) :) :) That tunnel is alot faster then. I had several of them.
Also an overshot of the station on Twister once or twice.

Once we were waiting in line for American Eagle at SFGAm, My friend and I took the front seat and my other two friends took the second seats....Once we got back to the station it was pretty empty and they told us that if no one was waiting for our row we could stay on....Well...there was actually no one waiting for front but one person waiting for the second row...So we all got off and we were walking around and just stopped to watch it. The exact train we where on stopped right at the top....WE didn't stop laughing until we got home about that one...
ALSO you can pretty much ride Shockwave right before the park closes like a million times...a different time a friend and I where the last to ride, and she was told that if you put a dime against your head that it will stay on the drop...lol...Well let's just say we never found it. Hopfully it didn't hit anyone in the head in the back rows...lol
** Anyone notice that if you sit in the front seat of America Eagle that the top left side in the red car lifts off the track? lol **
