The Rollercoasters I Have Ridden


Over the past few years, I have developed a love of Rollercoaster riding.  I joined the American Coaster Enthusiasts in 2000 and have gone to several events since then.  I personally prefer wooden coasters, though steel non-looping coasters rank second.  I love airtime; nothing else can compare to it!

Below is my coaster listing thusfar by year and net count.  I don't typically ride Kiddy Coasters unless there is no line and no one waiting.
