Is there a world record for the amount of roller coaster in one park. Not at one time, but thoughout the entire history of the park.

that is stretching it by a LOT...granted riverview went through a number of coasters, but they gave more name changes to them than anything else

Thanks. 50 is quite a bit! I think I was told that Cedar Point has had 18. Can anyone confirm that?

After the additions this year to SFGAM I believe they will have had 15 coasters.

By my count, Riverview had 20 DIFFERENT coasters over its 67 years. White Flyer, Top, Velvet Coaster, Pikes Peak, Aerial Coaster, Royal Gorge, Derby, Blue Streak, Gee Whiz (aka Greyhound), Jack Rabbit, Cannon Ball, Big Dipper (aka Zephyr & Comet), Pippin (aka Silver Flash & Flash), Skyrocket, Kiddie Bobs, Bobs, Fireball, Flying Turns, Wild Mouse & Jetstream. At its closing in 1967, 7 were still operating.

What about the High Frolics coaster, or was that at another park that I'm thinking of. It was in the same place as the Leap Frog Railway, and utilized only the lift. I also thought that High Frolics, Leap Frog, and Leap The Dips were just one coaster that went under heavy renovation 3 different times.

I think that CP had the most coasters. But right now it's going to be SFMM.

No way raptorfan00, SFMM hasn't been around long enough to have that many coasters. Such older parks as Cedar Point would.

Coney Island had 53. I just looked it up in the winter of 2000 issue of Roller Coaster! magazine (the one with the Rattler on the front).

Although Coney was made up of many different parks they were all located in one area. I guess that could be considered 1 huge park.

Even today Coney is made up of 3 different parks, Astroland, Deno's Wonder Wheel Park, and Coney Island Rides.
