What is the longest time spent on a coaster... aka I know Mike Bodley used to have it on the Cyclone. What's it now?
It's his turn to feast, when you ride the Son of Beast.

There is a guy in St. Louis that will set a record of 100 consecutive days on the boss. I can't remember his name but the six flags St. louis Website probably has it.

I don't know, but I would like to break it some day. There was a guy that did it on American Eagle a couple years ago.

I think his name is Richard Rodriguez (sp?). Today was his last day riding it.

I don't want to be gross here... but uh.. how do you manage to go to the bathroom when you are on a coaster for 100 days?

I emailed Guiness I while back about the record and they told me the following:
"Guiness Records doesn't do that record anymore for safety reasons."

That's odd. As far as I know they get bathroom brakes and dinner. Also, they sleep off of the train, I think.

Richard Rodriguez did 2000 hrs on the Big Dipper at Blackpool UK last year. He did it the year before to, but someone else broke it within a few weeks. Sad sod was so determined he did it again. S'funny, he looks quite slim in the face, then you see this huge fat arse he's been bouncing around on.I had a ride on the seat behind him. He has a seat with extra padding, a pillow and the lap bar tied open-given this 1926 John Miller contraption you need it spending 3 months on a bloody rollercoaster!!! He was allowed 5 mins off the ride for every hour he rode, he could save a few hours worth at a time, and then go for a 20 minute break. There was another guy on a wooden coaster in Canada at the same time, neither of them would get off, but Rodriguez won eventually!
