i did this survey last year, and it generated a good response. So here it is for 2011..very simply:

What was the last coaster you rode?

What is the next coaster you expect or hope to ride?

For me:

Last..Jack Rabbit at Seabreeze

Next..Steel Force at Dorney Park on 7/24.

Last coaster I rode? The Voyage: Holiday World

What is the next coaster I expect or hope to? New parks for me; either Waldameer or Darien Lake

Last: Hellcat at Timberfalls on Friday
Next: Going to Kennywood on the 26th. Most likely Sky Rocket

Re: Real-Time Coaster Survey by GoYanks34 GoYanks34 Profile at 7/10/11 8:59:32 PM

Last was Volcano at KD (I don't count Avalanche even though I technically rode that last b/c I don't consider bobsleds coasters, actually Drop Tower really was last but that's not a coaster either ;~)

Next depends on who I'm at SFGAdv with but probably El Toro since I don't like to ride KK first cause after that all others seem tame.

Re: Real-Time Coaster Survey by drachen drachen Profile at 7/10/11 10:37:29 PM

I do love the idea of having a thread like this. I'll probably post on it a few times this summer.

Last: A really good front seat Wild One ride at Six Flags America.

Next: Hopefully Hoosier Hurricane at Indiana Beach, maybe Cornball, maybe Lost Coaster.

I think my last ride was the 'ice dragon' [i refuse to call it by it's harry potter themed name].

Depending on which park I go to first [Sea World or BGA]: it would be either Manta or Cheetah Hunt.

Yeah, we could take turns being the "odd-man-out!!!"

Seriously if Mugen joins us we should try to get a sixth to even it out ad reduce the price-per-person on the FP ever so slightly.

Re: Real-Time Coaster Survey by squirrels at 7/12/11 9:53:17 AM

Last Coaster I Rode: Green Lantern (aka "Chang") at 6F-Great Adventure. It WOULD have been Kingda-Ka, but when we taxi'd out to the launch track, the ride faulted and was down for 20-30 minutes so we had to split.

Next Coaster I Will Ride: Hopefully something at Cedar Point. Looking forward to Maverick and Millenium Force

Re: Real-Time Coaster Survey by beastmaster beastmaster Profile at 7/27/11 3:18:14 PM

Update:

Last rode: Talon

Next: We'll probably put it to a vote....but it wll be at GAdv :)

Rock/paper/scissors?

Carol

AGHHH. why did I not see this before?!?!

I am gonna be outta town! nooooo! I've been there 7 times this year and you guys pick not only a day that I have off, but a day that I'm gonna be 10 hours away in Michigan!

I will be there in spirit though, as I will be at Michigan's Adventure that day if the weather permits that is. I am going to visit a friend from the 30th to the 4th

I am off from now on sun-tuesday though, so if you guys go the following week then I can go!

Re: Real-Time Coaster Survey by GoYanks34 GoYanks34 Profile at 7/28/11 2:22:14 AM

I thought you had seen this since I replied to your post. Sorry!

I probably can't go the following week but I'll make sure to let you know if we plan another trip.

Have fun in Michigan!

Jen

Re: Real-Time Coaster Survey by beastmaster beastmaster Profile at 7/28/11 11:26:34 AM

If anyone DOES want to join us, let us know. We'll be meeting about 10am and splitting a regular FP. Four in our little group.

I don't get emails for responses, do you? I would set that in a heartbeat if I could. I find this forum very hard to keep up with.

Also, thanks and I will!

Rob,

We have had a change of plans, we're going to be at KI on Sunday,
from opening to approx. 6PM. We're going to be involved in the Pink Ribbon thing from 3PM to 6PM.

Next coaster scheduled to ride is still most likely Dimondback!!!

I'll be in the sales booth Sunday, and again gone by 3PM so it's unlikely we'll see each other. Good luck with the pink ribbon gig.

> Next coaster scheduled to ride is still most likely Dimondback!!!

Have fun! Unfortunately I have not been in the park at all this year, other than twice in the waterpark. My first coaster of the year will probably be Diamondback if I go to the employee rides night, otherwise it may well be something at Disney this fall.

Fahrenheit's a long way off. If that's planned to be your next ride, you'll be waiting until the spring. Well, you waited over a year to reply to this thread, sooooo....

And I'll update for myself:

Last: Nitro (as Sandy approached)
Next: El Toro, likely. in March or April.

Zombie thread :) Well, I'll play.

Last: Superman ROS at SFA (what a fun fight with a line cutter to end the "regular" season)

Next: Something at Universal. Maybe Rip Ride Rockit or Mummy, depending on the crowds.

Re: Real-Time Coaster Survey by Cyclone_Phil Cyclone_Phil Profile at 11/19/12 10:16:40 PM
Good luck with RRR. They are on and off with that single rider line and that isn't all that much better over the regular line if it's under 30 min. Now with the Mummy, single rider you'll get like 5 rides in before the regular line can get on :)

Re: Real-Time Coaster Survey by Stredain Stredain Profile at 11/20/12 7:11:28 PM
My last coaster I rode was Verbolten and my next one is either Apollo or that old lady herself, Nessie. I havent hopped aboard Nessie yet but once BGW is fully open again, I am tackling Nessie.

I went for Mummy. It just made more sense because the single rider line was almost a walk-on. RRR was 20 mins by the time I got around there at 4:00, but I figured I would be better served to come back near closing or opening and just knock that one out later in the week.

Last ride ridden: Ice Dragon (I don't care to look up what its Harry Potter name is)
Next: Manta

I'm just jealous that you're riding coasters right now. I'm staring five long, coaster-free months in the face...

Hee, hee. Since the zombie thread was brought back, I felt an obligation to feed it :)

Manta didn't fly since I waited for 10 mins for a "minor delay" that turned into a "major one" (so much so that EVERYONE left the station and queue when they said it was "shut down" and "did not know how long". How often does it happen that everyone will leave?) I was at the bottom of the stairs, so I have no idea what happened, but wasn't stupid enough to hang around to see. (the ride did cycle by the time I had reached the lift/first drop area, so maybe I should have stayed. Went to Kraken instead and there was still a minimal wait (even with one train operations/no rerides, of course :(

Last ride: Manta
Next ride: Cheetah Hunt (BGT for Thanksgiving, baby :)

Re: Real-Time Coaster Survey by theRock-steel theRock-steel Profile at 11/23/12 6:04:55 AM
Last: Montu - just this last Monday before Thanksgiving. I keep changing my thinking on how much I like this ride.

Next: White Lightning - IF this opens before my next trip to any of the other local Florida parks.
