Total coaster track comparison at major parks

Monday, August 27, 2001 4:12 PM
Going through Guide to Ride 2000, I noticed PGA had only one coaster over 3000 feet in length. How much total track do they have? That sparked my interest in what other parks' totals were, and here's what I found. I counted Chiller as 2 coasters, all racing coasters as one, and only looked at parks with at least 10 coasters. I also limited the search to US, as incomplete information limited my research of parks such as Nagashima Spaland, or Blackpool Pleasure Beach, both of which have more than 10 coasters. (They're also the only independent parks with that figure)

In order of coaster count/alphabetical:

15: Six Flags Magic Mountain ------------ 40269
14: Cedar Point --------------------------- 44068
13: Paramount's King's Island ----------- 36005
12: Six Flags Great Adventure ----------- 28393
11: Paramount's Canada's Wonderland - 20897
11: Paramount's King's Dominion ------- 25124
11: Six Flags Great America ------------- 30470
11: Six Flags over Texas ----------------- 27468
10: Paramount's Great America ---------- 17140
10: Six Flags Astoworld ------------------ 20326
10: Six Flags Worlds of Adventure ------- 24547

Interesting to see that SFGAm has almost double that of it's former-brother PGA, and with just one more coaster. It's easy to see why CP is still #1, with 3 coasters over 5000 feet long. I didn't figure the averages, but SFMM's would be high, which explains why it's second.

Just something to make you say "Hmm.."

Very impressive, Ed.  I must say that it's interesting that my home park, SFGAm has more track that a park with more coasters and has the most track of any with the same amount of coasters.  Kudos on the research.

Sorry to break in on this "all-Ed thread", but that was very interesting, and a little work to boot.   Can you break that down into wood and steel track? j/k.  BTW, I am a woodie-junkie, and that's where PKI excels...Beast, Sob, Racer (forwards AND backwards), Beastie.  Shame it's so far away, and that FL's woodie selection remains a bit sparse...GOOD thing we have Cheetah and the Gwazi.
