I would think Superman The Escape at Magic Mountain but now i would have to say Millennium Force at Cedar Point. There is thousands of people that have traveled to Ohio to ride that thing.

It would be sorta hard to count. You couldn't say add the subtract the total from the year w/ no coaster from the year w/ the coaster, because even if a new roller coaster isn't built more people will come to the same park as the world is more crowded each year. Ya get what I am saying?

I'm not sure what the number one coaster in this case would be, but I do know of a number of coasters that have pretty much single handedly skyrocketed a park's attendance. Here's the list.

Batman- SFGAm
Magnum XL-200- Cedarpoint
Millennium Force- Cedarpoint
Superman: The Escape- SFMM
Tower of Terror- Dreamworld Australia
Medusa- SFGAdv (although part of a year where many rides were added, this one easily brought in the most people)

That's the recent crop, if you want, just say so and I can give some oldeer ones that made a big difference.

Don't forget some of the oldies like coney island cyclone. Beast at pki over the years has probably brought a lot of people to a park. Mf at cedarpoint along with magnum. the list goes on and on.

I would think that Nemesis did wonders for Alton Towers too... At least that would be my guess.

1.7 million people (might be just rides, not people) rode MF in 2000. So MF helped CP

Nitro at SFGAdv....I have never seen this many crowds at SFGAdv! In the middle of the week the overflow parking lot is starting to fill up! It's crazy!

But I thought attendance was down the year MF was made. Either that or it wasn't up to their expectations

I don't know haow much what coaster has boosted which parks attendance, but you can bet that the parks have it calculated pretty darn close. If you don't do that when you're spending millions on a ride, you wind up out of business.

I'm sure some CCI's helped a lot of parks.

Can anyone say Shivering Timbers? I am sure that ST helped boost MA's attendance, in the enthusiast category.

I can think of one coaster that didn't do too much for the park, Son of Beast. There wasn't as big as a fuss over this ride as there was over MF. It's too bad, because I think that SOB is great. I may be wrong, was attendance up that year?

It would have to be Batman the ride at six flags great america. it was the first inverted coaster in the world. to this day that ride has long lines and it opened 9 years ago.

Raven at Holiday World was huge for them. CCI must love saving small parks. It happens all the time.

I think whatever Knott's is gonna get is gonna be big enough to take the title.  Just a speculation.

Actually Ghostrider revived Knott's a lot already. Their next ride will only make things better for the park! :)
