I've got 4- Hercules, Orient Express, Screechin' Eagle, and Shockwave.
I'm a loser.
RIP Orient Express 1980-2003
BGW - Die Wildkatze and Glissade
Kennywood - Dipper
Opryland - Chaos, Screamin' Delta Demon, and Wabash Cannonball
PKD - Galaxie and King Kobra
PKI - King Cobra and Screamin' Demon
Pontchartrain Beach - Ragin' Cajun and Zephyr
SFAW - Excalibur
SFOG - Mini Mine Train
Nashville needs a theme park!
It's now the Stemin' Demon at my home park The Great Escape. Therefore categorizing the ride as relocated.
Wild Mouse - Conneaut lake
Mini Mine Train - SFOG
Excalibur - SFAW (in storage)
Texas Tornado - Frontier Land (UK)
Scenic Railway - Dreamland (UK)
King Kobra - PKI
Drachen Fyre - BGW
Hercules - Dorney Park
Mr. Twister - original Elitch Gardens
Wildcat - original Elitch Gardens
Wildcat - Sun Fun Park, N. Myrtle Beach
Red Devil - Ghost Town in the Sky (SBNO)
Windjammer - Knott's Berry Farm
Shockwave - SFGAm (in storage)
Jumbo Jet - Coney Island
Tornado - Petticoat Junction - FL
I'm not going to mention the endless number of Galaxy and smaller steel cloned coasters from the past.
Note: I'm also hesitant to add SBNO coasters like Screechin' Eagle. It still has a good chance of operating again, even to be relocated. It's not defunct yet whereas the Red Devil is pretty much history. Although it is still standing, it's days are numbered. I suppose the Shockwave (SFGAm) and other coasters in storage could fall into that category as well.

I've never been able to ride a defunct coaster, although I did ride King Kobra at PKI when it was still operatational a few years ago. I've also ridden Soap Box Derby Racers at KBF back when it was operating where X-celerator now stands.
l. Whippet, West View Park.
2. The Dips, West View Park.
3. Pippin (before evolving upward into Thunderbolt) Kennywood.
4. Dipper (Kennywood)
5. Steel Phantom (before evolving into PR) Kennywood
6. Laser Loop (Kennywood)
7. The Bat (Kings Island)
(or is it somewhere else still operating?)
Remember, EVERY coaster we have is from somewhere else. Well, except for the Boomerang (rolling eyes).
I don't have any defunt coasters on my record.
PGA- Greased Lighting
Nashville needs a theme park!
an old kiddie coaster at Williams Grove (not the present one)
Glissade and Wildkatz at BGW
Big Fury and Alpen Blitz at Great Adventure
Flying Dutchman and Hercules at Dorney
Twin Toboggans at Hersheypark
Jumbo Jet at Ocean City Pier
Wild Mouse at Trimpers Riders in OC
12 if you consider the following:
IF you consider Phantoms Revenge a separate coaster from (and not just a reprofiled version of) Steel Phantom
IF Playland in Rye NY is getting rid of Hurricane this off season.
"I don't believe it!" - Victor Meldrew
Shockwave from SFGADV but that doesn't count. I am actually glad my count is low.
Black Widow (Riverside/SFNE)
Jet Star (Casino Pier)
Flyer (Hunt's Pier)
Zyklon (Mariner's Landing)
Zyklon (Morey's Pier)
Lightning Loops (SFGAdv)
Jumbo Jet (Coney Island)
Steel Phantom (Kennywood)
Drachen Fire (BGW)
SLFAKE: I consider Steel Phantom to be defunct because the ride that exists today bears very little resemblence to the ride that once operated. If the "spirit" of the original ride had been somewhat preserved, then it might make sense to say that the ride is not really defunct, but since Kennywood obviously wanted a different ride, I think its safe to say that the original Phantom is gone.

Riverview Mike, how, if at all, does the Raging Wolf Bobs at SFWoA compare to the Bobs at Riverview?
IMO, RWB has 3 things in common with Riverview's Bobs:
1. They are both made of wood
2. They are both roller coasters
3. The footprint is roughly the same.
In fact, RWB is nothing like the Bobs. The profiling is all wrong, the shuffling is awful and the trains are wrong. The Bobs had single articulating cars like the GCI Millenium Flyers. IMO, HW's Legend rides a lot like Riverview's Bobs.
