How many Coasters Do You Ride A Year?

?

I ride about 5-10 a year. I'm only 13 so my parents take me to two parks a year.

The last three years have been pretty good to me.  About 100-120 per year.  The joys of traveling for a living......

I was really lucky to set a personal record this year with 22 new coasters.... I finally got to go to HersheyPark and Cedar Point this Year..... Went to CP this last (closing weekend) I was not expecting all the coasters to be open but really lucked out... Rode all but Jr. Gemini... I'm not sure if i'll ever boost my track Record this well in one year ever again but who knows.....

Way too many!  Eighteen months ago my count was 13 - This year alone I've added over 100 coasters to my count.  It's fun but the travel wears me down and gets expensive.

I've done 55 this year, several of which were new to me thanks to a two-week trip to the Northeast visiting six new parks (and crying as we passed by the parks we didn't have time to visit *sniff*).

I was fortunate to hit nearly 90 coasters in 2001....most of which were new to me :) I went from 135 a year ago to 212! It pays to live in Ohio!

So far I've ridden 94 coasters this year, with a trip to PKI coming up to add to that total (I stopped at PKI earlier this year on the way home from Stark Raven Mad, but only rode 3 coasters while there). 43 of those were new to me.  I'm HOPING to get myself down to Florida before the year's out, but that may need to wait a bit.

2 years ago my track record was at 38, now it's at 122 and counting :)  The past 2 summers have been good ones...

Well, *this* year, I've ridden either 98 or 99 coasters (GregLeg, did we ride Wildcat any of the times we were @ CP?). I'll say about 50 of those were new to me (so about half old, half new). And that's out of about 142 coasters total.

Okay, here goes...

Early 1970's to late 1980's = 15 coasters (? total "laps")
Late 1980's to 1998 = 0 coasters (what the he** happened here?!?)
1999 = 9 coasters (7 new) (24 total "laps")
2000 = 17 coasters (11 new) (36 total "laps")
2001 = 43 coasters (32 new) (107 total "laps")

Grand Total = 65 coasters (176+ total "Laps")

(now you see why my wife calls me 'anal-retentive' keeping all of this on a spread sheet)

2001 was a very good year for new coasters... Thanks to trips to IOA, BGT, SWFla, Old Town, Dorney Park, Dutch Wonderland, and Six Flags America.

Somewhere in the 40-45 range. Around 25 - 30 of those were new.
A first trip to Cedar Point, Worlds of Adventure, Seaworld Orlando, and Busch Gardens Tampa will do that though.

I have rode 102 coasters this year. Normally I would ride about 33 but, this year I added 71 new coasters to my track record.  It has been a good coaster year and it's not over yet!
