I was thinkning and i see some of you people who are in your older years have a large track record. I have been scared of roller coasters untill i was 12 years old , Now i am 15 years old only three years later and i have a track record of forty five , but after my annual trip to CP i will head to SFGAd, in jersey, ( that will add 13 if i Choose to ride all of them which i happily will ) then i will head home and go to busch gardens ( which will add 5 , not including scorpion i rode a while back ) so will have a track record of 63 in a month. Anybody else been riding for a short time and have a realatively large track record !?

I've only been an enthusiast for about 2 years. Before then I had only been to Disneyland, Magic Mountain, Knott's, and, for a reason which is a long story, the Mindbender in the West Edmonton Mall. I now have a track record of 53. After this summer, it could quite possibly (if I get on all proposed coasters) be over 100. This summer's going to rock! ------------- Saviour machine aka Squeemu!
i've really only been a true "enthusiast" (going to many parks) but i've always gonw to 3 parks a whole lot (Cp, SFWoA, Florida). Now i'm a full blown enthusiast with 86 rides on my track record, i'm trying to hit 100 this year! I just might, how many coasters does Morey's pier's have?
I either need to get new parents who enjoy coasters ( lol ) or i can't wait till i get the money and the freedom like you guys do so i can go everywere on my own or with family , Main thing - i need to be older i guess ------------- Blue Streak Laps : 490 ~~ 85 in one day
Callahan, I feel your pain!! I'll finally be heading off to college next year so I should have the opportunity to make a few weekend trips. The only problem is that weekend trips cost money, something college students never seem to have a lot of. Oh well.

Last year was the first year I actually traveled to many parks. At the beginning of the 2000 season I had about a total of 45 coasters on my track record. Now it stands at 180 not too bad of a gain for just one season. This year I want to reach at least my 200th coaster. I don't think I'll have a problem doing that. :)
------------- Hello, My name is Dan and I'm a coasterholic.
I was scared to death of coasters until last year. I wouldn't ride a single one. After the Hulk though(last March), which was actually my first non-home park looper, I was hooked! I went from like 20 coasters(PKI, WDW, IOA) to about 120 by the end of the year. I begged my parents and during the 2000 season I went to like 12 parks for the first time(SFNE, SFGAm, SFKK, SFO, CP(for coasters), DW(for coasters), HW, BGT, DL, KBF, BGW, Dorney,...).
I'm Koaster King, I'm 16, and I'm a raging Coasterholic.

I hear you loud and clear. Last year being my first as a college student, I can tell you that it's hard to go visit a large number of parks, and your cash flow is extremely limited. I barely had enough dough to scrape up for my SDC and WOF season passes. Add to this that the only feasible day to travel to a distant park is a Saturday (I avoid Saturdays at theme parks like the plague) and that weekends are a good time to catch up in your classes (study?--at college :) ) and it can be pressing to go to new parks. However, I still have plans to try to hit Adventureland this fall, as well as going to Holiday World and SFoT this summer.
BTW, themeparkne, I love the signature. Thank God for designers as creative as Checketts.
------------- According to the "official" count, next year's new coaster lineup will feature 17 Arrow 4-Ds, 21 TA2Ks, 34 B&M floorless's, 17 Intamin Gigas, 12 beemer flyers, and 247 CCIs. And oh yeah, CP will receive one of all of these.
Well, I grew up at Geauga Lake and we only had 3-4 coasters operating at a time. That was essentially my Cedar Point, since my parents didn't have a whole lot of money and it was "too far" for them. (Yeah, an hour)
It wasent until College when I started hitting Cedar and PKI, and getting bigger into coasters now I am up to 141.
I have 53 right now I believe, I don't feel like checking my record right now. I don't plan on going to any parks this year I haven't been to before, but I may go to SFGAd and ride BR:TC, Medusa, and Nitro, which weren't there last time I went!

Mine is very limited but,i grew up the child of a single parent so,money was tight.Even when i hit 17 i worked a full time job to help out my mom so,i really didn't have much free time to travel.In the past couple of years i only visited one park outside of NJ (Dorney) so now,since i am done being pregnant and my son is getting a little older,i am making it a point to at the least hit one park outside of NJ each year.This year i am thrilled i will visit three :)
