Foreign Coasters

Wednesday, December 4, 2002 2:28 PM
Most people here live in America, but there are also people here worldwide. So this goes to everyone out here. How many coasters outside of your country have you ridden? The only other country besides America that I've ridden coasters in is @ Canada's Wonderland and at the Canadian National Exhibition. How many exotic coasters have you been on?

Well, my coastercount is reaching the 100-mark, and I've ridden about 20 in my own country. So that makes 80. :) FYI: I live in Holland, and I've been on rides in Germany, the UK, France, Spain, Belgium and some other minor countries..

I've been to Marineland, so that makes 2 out of the US coasters for me. I also got really close to going to the only amusement park in Northern Ireland, (which at the time only had a Pinfari Big Apple) but I didn't have enough time...I wish I'd had an extra day...

I have ridden 20 in Japan, and 5 or 6 in Canada. I hope to visit Canada's Wonderland this summer. It would put me over 300 coasters! :)

Well, I've only been to three countries apart from the U.S., and only to border/resort cities in two of those (Niagara Falls, Tijuana, Cancun, Calica). And I don't think Honduras has any coasters....

Short answer... no. All my 86 coasters ridden are in the U.S. of A.

I've been to one park outside of the US, Playland in Vancouver. It was terrific!

Hmmm, let's see. Of 203 coasters, 3 were in Wales, 43 (I think, give or take) in England.

I was @ Canada's Wonderland about 10 yrs ago and rode the 6 or so coasters they had up there. Then, this past summer, when I went to meet my girlies family in Mexico, I convinced the lovely beauty that we needed a stop @ Six Flags Mexico on our way home. Too bad their Batman was closed, however, I must say that Medusa has to be one of the roughest rides I have ever ridden.. a wooden shockwave if you will.

It just so happens my favorite coaster is in another country.That country is only 5-6 hours driving time from my home,unless the traffic in Seattle is corked up. So far I have ridden 3 coasters outside of the USA,all at the same park.
