But then again, I have the (rare?) ability to recognize "it's ALL just for fun", and to laugh at myself...so I get *credit* for that... :)
^Tony, a site like CC *has* to put the ride up twice, some may not have ridden it at GL and would need the PKI entry in order to count it at all.... ;)

I, personally, will count it. Why? Because to me, the ride's surroundings -- park, other rides, buildings, etc. -- play a big part in the ride experience. Just because it's the same physical steel doesn't make it the "same coaster" for me (even if the name were the same and the track color unchanged) any more than a clone does, because the surroundings are completely different. Now if they decided in 5 years to take it out of PKI and put it back in at GL in *approximately* the same spot, then in that case I would not count it.
But that's just my reasoning as to why *I* choose to count it. If someone else doesn't count it for other reasons, that's ok too.
As for loopless SOB -- doesn't matter since I didn't have the loop-credit. :) -- humping Chiller? I'll have to ride it before I decide, but most likely I will count it when I'm telling people "I've ridden that with and without the zero-G" but not in the "I've ridden 180 coasters" number. Just like a roll-back on TTD doesn't count in my numbers, but it still manages to find its way into conversation when the subject comes up. :)
The gray area is when rides are moved.
DeepThroat said:Do you guys count both ki's FOF and KD's FOF?
Sure, I rode both, with AND without OTSR's....for two credits total! ;)
Hehe, I'm sure some would count that as four, and I'm not going to argue against...esp. considering how VASTLY improved the rides were after the retrofits... :)
You still have Zoidberg.... You ALL have Zoidberg! (V) (;,,;) (V)
Doesn't really matter though, it's not going to run right for them. FireHawk: it better get a new paint job with that name.

My Personal Rules on Credits.
(1) Clones count as individual credits
(2) Relocated rides count as indivual credits
(3) Single rides with Seperate tracks can count as individual credits (racers).
These apply solely to me. I do not care what anybody else does.
Guess who's back? Back Again? James K's back. Tell a friend.
IF I was counting credits though, there's no way I would count that as a new ride. Its the same ride with new paint. Did you count Magnum again because it got a new color? What about Iron Dragon? LOL!!
SOB on the other hand will be dramatically different without the loop. But still, I don't count rides, so who cares?
It is up to each individual to count coasters in the method they deem appropriate for themselves. There is no right or wrong.
Well said. :)
1. It isn't
2. I rode it the year it opened.
Hope that helps you come to a decision as to how your going to keep a coaster count.
I mean, think about Scream! at SFMM. It it stuck in the middle of a parking lot! Then say it was moved over to SFGrAm, placed with some beautiful scenery, and a new name and color scheme. Now, wouldn't that be a different ride experience all together? I sure think it would.
This is just my opinion.....
