i know this isn't much of a milestone but when i go to Cedarpoint in 3 months to Coastermania. i figured out that TTD will be my 100th coaster. What a coaster to set a record for myself. I will ride this coaster at 6:30 in the morning. I can't wait. Can you guys remember what your 100th coaster is or will be?? ------------------ 420 ft. 120 mph twice, 270º twist, brakes. ONLY at cedar point.
My 100th coaster was Shivering Timbers on a downpouring, dreary, morning last year. I rode this with Kristin Marie (also her 100th coaster) and ST Chick(her 800th ride on Timbers). Kara can attest that, that was the worst ride ever on the ride. We almost rolled back, and thus Shivering Timbers has been known as Shivering Kindling since that ride has not delivered after going up to Michigan three different times. Hopefully Timbersfest proves me wrong.
If memory serves me right, B:KF was my 100th, or was it the Villian, it was one of those rides because my family was going to hit 100 together and have to save a "good coaster" for us to hit the century mark because we had to ride 6 coasters at SFWOA (2000) to hit 100.

Some of these milestones are amusing, but I think I have the humor value award.
#100 was the Hershey Wildcat.
#150 was The Bullet at Flamingoland
#200 was Superman Ultimate Flight at SFoG (should've made it Georgia Cyclone in retrospect, ah well...)
However (and I didn't realize this until I got back to the States), my 50th woodie was Zipper Dipper at Blackpool Pleasure Beach. Could've been Grand National if I'd thought about it ahead of time. Oh well, it's still a cute little woodie, and at least it happened at an appropriate PARK.
