Re: How many defunct roller coasters has you ridden?

I've had a quick look through RCDB at the coasters defunct in the UK, there are about 8 that jump out at me but without carefully cross-refrencing all 600+ of my coasters, it's hard to put an exact number on it.

At a guess I'd estimate that between 5-10% of my coaster count are defunct coasters.

I'm pretty sure for me it's just the spinning mouse thing that was on South pier in Blackpool.

I have ridden windstorm and the big Apple at Old Town but I believe those have just been relocated rather than scrapped.

Just Disaster Transport for me.

Re: How many defunct roller coasters has you ridden?

Corkscrew, AT
Super Dragon, Drayton
Big Apple, PBB
Circus Clown, PBB
Family Ride, New Brighton

I think that's it, anyway.

Corkscrew, AT
Python, BGT
Clown Coaster, Chessington (?)

And if we're including SBNO (with pretty much guaranteed closure for good) then Gwazi Lion and Tiger. I think that's it. I haven't counted relocations otherwise black hole and a couple of others would be on there too.

I can name a few defunct manufacturers if that helps?

I think Corkscrew at Alton is only one on my count that has been destroyed.

Though I guess Gwazi will soon be joining that.

Re: How many defunct roller coasters has you ridden?

I've never ridden a defunct roller coaster, I usually ride the ones that are operating. :p

Joking aside, though my count is low, I've ridden 2 coasters that are now defunct:
Keverbaan - Slagharen Edit: I should've done my research, it's relocated and SBNO, not defunct. (Thanks Gavin)
Tornado - Speelstad Oranje

Defunct isn't the same as relocated. Just saying.
