Milestone Coasters in Your Count

So I need 7 creds for my next milestone (1100). Given the....situation...I've decided I'm going to really scrape the UK barrel in an attempt to get it. Here's my plan:

Coney Beach, Porthcawl - +1
Funland at the Tropicana - +3
New Brighton Funfair - +2
Clacton Pier - +1

Should be a bleak interesting Summer!

I've really enjoyed getting up at 6am to drive hours and hours for a couple of creds. I'm only 13 creds off 1400, and I've only got 6 left in the UK to get which is really frustrating. Even if I managed to get the 4 creds in the Republic of Ireland as well, I'm still 4 short.

@nadroJ if it's the looping coaster at Clacton you need, you might have already ridden that at Codona's when we did that Scotland trip back in 2013. If it's one of the other ones there you need, then happy days. I was delighted when I found out I didn't have to drive 5 hours to Clacton again (for now)!

I'm also gonna try and get to 100 Wacky Worms next year. I've currently got 86.

New Brighton Funfair - +2
Just got my 550th there (if you can count that as a rather tenuous milestone!!)

The staff are surprisingly friendly and goon-tolerant, considering the location - and don't forget it's only a short run down the M53 to Chester Zoo if you want to make the trip worthwhile :)

I know this thread is really meant for coasters, but I did my 100th park a few weeks ago, and figured that could count as a milestone too.

1. Disneyland Resort Paris - Disneyland Park
50. Galveston Pier
100. Sky Ranch Pampanga
This one took a little while - last park milestone was in 2017!

1. Disneyland Resort Paris - Disneyland Park
50. Galveston Pier
100. Sky Ranch Pampanga
150. Fantasy Island

Yes, I count 50s for the parks. :)

Congratulations @Hixee! I take it this is the Skegness Fantasy Island, not the American Fantasy Island?

Got my 300th today on the brilliant Storm Chaser……at Paultons Park ;)

I have been waiting since Winter Wonderland 2019 for my 300th so it’s nice to finally tick it off, the spinning was either nothing or out of control making each ride feel very different, as I went on a quiet Wednesday I managed to get 6 rides on Storm Chaster including a Zen ride with just me and my friend.

I thought the coaster along with the area were great additions to the park, they did a fantastic job of theming making it better than the lost kingdom ( critter creek is looking naff in comparison though )

Other bits below:

Cyclonator is nuts, great forces and packs a great punch, brave for them to add something like this.

Due to the pig on a weekday the rest of the park is dead making this a brilliant park for re-rides, on the “bigger” coasters we got about 5+ rides for each.

Just to say, on the day we went the Cobra area of the park opened at 12, not sure if its always like this.

Managed to get a Zen ride on Pterosaur to.

Paultons also has animals which are interesting to see, here is a chill meerkat not doing his job.161398FB-5784-4322-8EFC-F038892FA0D0.jpeg

I love this park, lots of fond memories and it’s easy to make more here, I hope they add a bigger stand out coaster in the future but I think they should tick off a dark ride and decent log flume first, cannot wait to go here again 😁

Congratulations on 300 @Niles, and I’m glad you had a nice day at Paultons!

I’m looking forward to going at the end of the month; on a topic relevant to this thread, I’ll hopefully be getting my 75th credit at Paultons!

Right, I'm now able to provide some updated info for this thread after searching through family photos from our 2014 Florida trip, and I've also decided to change what I consider a milestone, so here goes:
1. Runaway Mine Train at Alton Towers (28th September 2013)
25. Expedition Everest at Disney's Animal Kingdom (23rd August 2014)
50. Big One at Blackpool Pleasure Beach (14th August 2018)
Next big milestone I'll probably count is my 75th, which will be some time in the future!
As it would turn out, “some time in the future” was July 2021!
75. Flight of the Pterosaur at Paultons Park (30th July 2021)

I normally count every 25th (and 69th because I am immature) coaster I've been on. I only have 68 so far, but that's going to change in about 2 days (Kings Dominion vacation!) from this post. I also count coasters from the last coaster I have ridden that year.

The milestone coasters:
25: Superman Ultimate Flight (Six Flags Great Adventure)
50: Magnum XL-200 (Cedar Point)
69: ???? (I am 99% sure it's gonna be Intimidator 305)


The coasters from the end of the year:
End of 2019, credit #11: FunCoaster (The Funplex)
End of 2020, credit #47: Great Bear (Hersheypark)
End of 2021, credit #???(90? I went to alot of big name places this year, my luck lol; plus I graduated college and mom said I was a good boy): ???(Which ever SFNE coaster I go to last I guess, unless I go to some new park later than October which is not likely since most places close coasters after the halloween events.)

If you don’t mind me asking, what’s the significance of the 69th coaster in particular? It seems an interestingly specific number to go for for a milestone, so does the number 69 hold some degree of personal significance for you or something?

Oh Matt. Maybe one for you to Google in your own time, outside of view of your parents or teachers. ;)

I feel Matt is definitely in need of sharing a post-Live 'lodge room with a bunch of drunken CFers...
...but before this topic turns into an American Pie sequel, err... the A556 goes to Manchester Airport. I wonder what my 556th cred will be :D

Just a funny number. The others got it right lol
Also it's a run-on gag number in my family.

Been awhile since I've posted. Last time I think I was still at 900. Definitely happy with 1000 as a prototype is an awesome milestone just from the novelty perspective alone and then 1100 being a fair cred was pretty cool.
