You can count 91 coasters but you can't count the parks they were in? Normally there are fewer parks than coasters. :)

I always keep track of the amount of coasters not the parks.

36 new coasters in 10 new parks.

More importantly, that brings my "Schmeck Count" to 9 out of 12 with the addition of Comet (Great Escape) and Yankee Cannonball.

Does anybody know off hand which year saw the largest number of new coasters built? 1997 perhaps?

19 new coasters for me this year, at 4 different parks, which is not bad considering I'm only 16 years old. Plus Kennywood and Cedar Point( Dragster being the only new coaster for this year I've ridden) which I've already been to.

Does anybody know off hand which year saw the largest number of new coasters built? 1997 perhaps?

In 1999 there were 62 new coaster installations (give or take) in North America. I believe that's the most.

1997 had around 24.

I do believe 1999 was the peak of the coaster "boom"

1996 - 26 (marked the first time more than 20 new coasters were built in North America in one year)
1997 - 24
1998 - 38
1999 - 62
2000 - 50
2001 - 36

EDIT - Not sure about 2002 or 2003 stats. The numbers above were something I just had lying around (sadly :( )
