    Just thought it would be cool to see what year you first rode each coaster in your Top 10. A lot of my first coasters have remained in my top 10 for over a decade since I've not had chance to visit many parks in recent years, yet the impact they've had on my coaster enthusiasm is still hugely significant.

    1. Tonnerre de Zeus (2010)
    2. Helix (2014)
    3. Steel Dragon 2000 (2015)
    4. Dragon Khan (2007)
    5. Nemesis (1998)
    6. OzIris (2012)
    7. Pyrenees (2015)
    8. Monster (2010)
    9. Krake (2014)
    10. Black Mamba (2010)

    Nice mix of recent (2014-16 = 4), slightly longer ago (2010-2012 = 4) and even older (2007 & 1998). Interesting to think I first rode Nemesis so long ago and it was my number one for 9 years until Khan. Even more interesting that Zeus is 6 and counting already, can it last til 2020?


    All years I've ridden my top 10 is also interesting.

    1. Tonnerre de Zeus (2010, 2012, 2014)
    2. Helix (2014, 2015)
    3. Steel Dragon 2000 (2015)
    4. Dragon Khan (2007, 2009)
    5. Nemesis (1998, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2016)
    6. OzIris (2012, 2014)
    7. Pyrenees (2015)
    8. Monster (2010)
    9. Krake (2014, 2015)
    10. Black Mamba (2010, 2015)

    It would appear I'm quite fond of reriding my favourites, even flung across Europe. Will be riding Zeus, Helix, Nemesis, OzIris, Monster and Black Mamba again this season. Would like to to back to PortAventura again soon as Khan has aged atrociously, apparently.

    Also, how did I really not go to Alton Towers for almost 4 years? Madness.

    2011 was my first "official" season as an enthusiast but I do notice the only season not making an appearance was 2012 (my least successful season with the only new cred being Wild Eagle). But as I travel more and continue to jack up my count I'm noticing more per year. With any luck this'll be dominated with New England coasters by the year's end!
