What is your average # of rides per season

Wednesday, June 12, 2002 4:04 PM
This is my 1st year to keep track. i have 72 rides (not individual coasters) already.

It's fairly rare for people to keep track of how many laps they take in a given year in total...heck, I wouldn't even be able to tell you how many laps I've taken this season total and I've only been to two parks so far!

I personally find that keeping track of what rides I've been on is fun while counting individual laps turns riding into a job which I'm doing less for fun and more for numbers...thus, I simply don't do it.

I have no clue. Way too many to keep track of and way too much of a chore be bothered.

I haven't really bothered to keep track each year, but I could guess that last year, with at least 15 trips between SFMM, Disneyland, DCA and Knott's, I probably got in over 150 coaster laps. I have, however, kept track of my laps on 'X', which now stands at 31 in only five trips to the park.

I'm somewhat of a bean counter so I like to keep track.

I have 106 on Timbers for the season; as far as other coasters, that would be cool to keep track of...but I have not been :(.

176 rides on 23 coasters. I've already got more rides in than any other year and the year's not even over yet!

0 rides so far, but I can guarantee that by the end of the season I won't be able to tell you how many rides I'll have had. Right now a week from Monday is my next trip to a park this season, hopefully it won't storm all day this time (I'll be going to SFGAm again).

...."sea - son.....what is this season you speak of?" If you don't recognize this as original Star Trek, you might be too young....lol.

I couldn't and wouldn't keep count of individual rides....and having coasted frequently on/around New Years'. Sorry guys, payback time....after having ridden a wide selection of your treasures already this summer, and turning absolutely green with envy, those in the Midwest and North must suffer my *wrath* a little bit.....MAN are those some fantastic rides. Weird thing though, SFoG's "season" ends SOOOO early, and Wild Adventures (only 3 hours' drive to the south) is open year round (weekends only of course, but talk about having "the run of the place".....With Cheetah, Double Shot, and now Power Surge and Kite Flyer, as well as a smoother-rhan-average Boomerang and SLC, I expect to see some folks there about 6-8 months from now....

I don't know how many total laps, but already added 90 new coasters to my count this year, and I couldn't even tell you how many other coasters this year that were already in my count. Probably 120-130 different coasters this year so far, with many more to go.

The Problem is I have no way of counting them. Everytime I try using a coaster count website *cough*coastercount.com*cough*. It shuts down on last check fron last year I had 40 somthing rides on my record. Last year I rode around 30 coasters. If there any good free coaster count web sites (that are open) around plase tell me about it.

Well, I only know mine because I've been to 1 park so far this year. I've ridden 14 coasters for a total of 18 laps. By the end of the summer, I'll way too many to count, since I'll be 15 minutes from BGW, and will probably go once or twice a week.

I've ridden Cornball Express more than any other ride this year. I've been to IB 4 times. On LoCoSuMo media day I sat on Cornball at 3:00pm and didn't get off except to change seats occaisionally at 5:15. With the at least 10 rides I took on all the other days, I'd have to say that would be roughly 50 rides so far on it, probably 20 on the Hurricane, 9 on Galaxi, 4 on Tig'rr and 4 on Lost Coaster. I'll go to IB at least 4 more times this year and will most likely add another 50 rides. I've also been to CP, HW, PKI, Fun Spot, and SFKK. I plan to go to MIA, Stricker's, LeSourdville Lake-The Great American Amusement Park, SFGA and return trips to HW CP, and PKI, so I'd have to say that I'll have around 634 individual rides this year, but I might be way off on those numbers, I really don't know.

Last year... 105 rides on 45 different coasters

This year so far... 42 rides on 15 different coasters

Keep in mind, I don't "power ride", I don't get to parks as much as some people, and when I am at a park (in particularly a new park) I like to see the whole park, not just spend my time re-riding the same coaster over and over and over again.
