Strictly coasters, not including flat rides and slides;

2014 - WMG at Canada's Wonderland
2015 - Rougarou (lol if it counts, it counts)
2018 - Steel Vengeance
2019 - Steel Curtain the day after it opened (chaos) and Yukon Striker
2020 - Frank'n Coaster (Burger King)

Eh, could be much better, but could be worse. In terms of this year, unless I get a few days extra off of work, that will just be limited to a relocated Schwarzkopf Shuttle Loop (no small brag if Gene actually manages to get it opened)

Adding Iron Gwazi and Ice Breaker for 2022 to this list (I liked them both a lot but does it make me a bad person that i preferred Hagrids to anything else I've ridden??)

I've only done two rides in their respective opening years:

2018 - Steel Vengeance
2019 - MaxxForce

I might be able to do Catwoman SFSTL in 2022 but it depends on if it ever gets built.
2022- Catowman Whip
Hope to be able to go to parks on my own next year, maybe I'll get the family ride/log flume duo that's being built at Adventureland ia

Leap the Dips:
I remember sailing in my raft over to United States to ride it. I got a horse and carriage the rest of the way- those were the good old days, before all this B&M bull**it and arrow steel mumbojumbo.

2007 - PortAventura Park - Furius Baco: Super rough even right after it opened
2008 - Tibidabo's Muntanya Russa: Really cool family coaster, great views of Barcelona
2011 - PortAventura Park - All the Sesame Street rides that opened that year
2012 - PortAventura Park - Shambhala: About two or three weeks after it opened if I remember correctly.
2014 - PortAventura Park - Angkor: it's a water splash battle so... yeah

So basically all the rides of PortAventura Park that were opened after 2005 with the exception of Hurakan Kondor and Street Mission.
