I'm curious - how many people have ridden coasters that aren't on their continent? I've yet to do so, but I hope to be able to ride a few before I die. :)

Ask me again in August:) I'm going to hit a good dozen parks in Japan since I have to go there!

Boomerang at Fantsilandia in Chile (South America), and Montekaya??? anyways that 8 looper by intamin in Brasil.

I rode all the coasters except for the kiddie one I couldn't get on at Blackpool Pleasure Beach. That's it, but it's still pretty good IMO.
I refuse to add a signature. Damn, too late.

While serving with the 2nd Infantry in 1994, I rode the "French Revolution" Arrow Looper-1989, inside Lotte World in Seoul, South Korea, The park is part of a large department store, it has what looks like Cinderella's Castle out back.

PT300, yes I am going to ride Steel Dragon.
I'm excited to ride the two largest coasters in the world over there. (The first custom TA2K is going there. I spoke with some S&S people, and while they aren't saying what park exactly it will be at, it is scheduled to open in July. The most likely place is Fujikyu Highland.)

Wow. I didn't even know there was an 8-looper by Intamin. How was it? It would give us a pretty good idea how Atlantis might turn out.

I've been to Toshimaen in Japan, Fujikyu Highland, (home to Fujiyama!!!) and Tokyo Disneyland... not too shabby eh?
Too bad that SD2000 wasn't built yet.
My pet peeve: People who post and just write how the thread will be closed. JUST DONT POST

Okay just to correct some of the stuff I said before that 8-looper is called Monte Makaya, and is built by Intamin, and the park is called Terra Encantada. All I cany its pretty smooth, but the trains are so boxy and ugly, however really comfortable; the barrel rolls one after the other are really smooth, overall this ride is smooth from what I remember, but it didn's seem to go that fast. Oh yeah one more thing, this thing was extremely disorienting.

I rode all the coasters at Parc Asterix in France...Tonnerre de Zeus is the one of the best woodies that I've been on.
