Never mind. I think we have a winner.. Unless someone can beat Arrow_Guy and his track record of 212 (although a suspect 12 rides listed for Thunderbolt Express) hehe. Wow.. amazing man. ----------------- I rode "X" and never went upside down.

That was a little ferocious, don't you think? At no point did I give more merit to those who had ridden more. But, by the same token, when people look to Rideman for a lot of technical aspects of rides, I might be more inclined to know WHO has been on many of the rides when I ask questions such as "If I only had time for one park coming back through PA, should I try to hit Dorney or Kennywood". Anybody who posts can yell out one or the other, but I might take a little longer look at a response by Arrow Guy, or Soggy. If it wasn't for Soggy, I would have gone to Six Flags Astro World instead of Jazzland when I visited my brother in Baton Rouge. Thanks to him, I rode a great CCI instead of moldy old coasters in Houston.
More times than not, there's a legitimate reason why I post a thread here. Please give me the benefit of the doubt next time.

It should'nt be on the number, but rather the different types of coasters. For example probably about 20 of any Amercian buzzers are going to be boomerangs. It should be the number with regards to types and different countries. I've done over 100 coasters in US,UK,France,Spain,Australia with Germany and Holland coming next year. You Americans have it easy, that because there's a decent theme park within 2hours from anywhere. Your just damm lucky buzzers.
I rode 177 coasters. That's not counting racers and dueling coasters as two. Some coasters not on my list are the original Corkscrew at KBF, a disney coaster and another one. Before the 2000 season, I only had 17 total but I went all out - riding 135 new ones in 2000 and 35 new ones this year. ----------------- My place
There are several Buzzers who list over 200 coasters on their track record. There are also several others who list 0 coasters that certainly have totals of well over 200, but they haven't worried about entering their list.
