You Know that you are a credit whore if --

You go to that small out of the way park or FEC just because thay have that one coaster in it.

You take a small child with you to the park just so that you can ride the kiddie coaster.

You pay $30 to enter a park just for an hour or two just to ride 2 or 3 coasters that you never rode before.

You tolerate that rough, headache inducing coaster just so you can say that you rode it.

You wait in line for 4 hours to ride that new super coaster that everyone else is waiting to ride.

You return to a park that you really don't like that much just because they added another coaster.

You make at an occasion to go to that private event park on one of those rare public days that they have because you haven't been there before.

You make a special long trip to a far-away park with coasters you haven't ridden because of rumors that they are going to close for good.

You search out all of the various fairs and carnivals that have portable coasters on the midway that you haven't ridden before.

You make a special visit to those guys with backyard coasters after getting in good with them.

You return to a park that you visited earlier in the year just to ride the coaster that wasn't running during the earlier visit.

You keep arguing the case for counting first generation Intamen drop towers and gravity dark rides as coasters. *** Edited 4/11/2007 12:53:26 AM UTC by Arthur Bahl***

You can't remember the names of all the coasters you might have ridden at a certain park as a kid so you check them off your list anyway.

You add coasters to your track record that haven't even opened yet.

You add coasters to your track record that are out of the country to impress your fellow Kinko's co-workers, while you do not even own a passport.

...if you count the Crystal Beach Cyclone after having ridden Great Escape's Comet just because some of the wood was reused from the former.

If....

If you count a recently painted coaster as a new credit.

If you fall for the ACE Gravy eating Contest Challenge: EAt a gallon of gravy for an extra credit on a coaster to be determind later.

You consider X-Hawk, errrr, FireFlight a new credit due to name, location and paint change...

If, like me, you consider Devil's Den a credit.

You count both sides of the modified Chiller as new credits. Ok so maybe I did count Robin as my first new coaster of the season but the track is a different layout than it was before is it not? It is also a design I have never rode before is it not? It may be pushing it but hey I think it more legit than counting Firehawk after riding X Flight.

Guilty as charged. Visited Six Flags Darien Lake last summer on rumors that Six Flags was liquidating the park and the unsure future of it.
