Up until yesterday, I'd have have been a 3 or 4.
I've always been more of a cred snob than a cred whore. Only coasters of a certain caliber would make it into my count. Quite happy to skip Go Gators, Wacky Worms, Tivoli's, junior woodies, crappy Pinfari's, spinning mice, normal mice, etc etc..
Yesterday, that all changed when me, @NeoXIII and @witchfinder embarked on a filthy, shameless cred run to Brean leisure park.
Caterpillar coaster? Check. √
Spinning mouse? Check. √
Crappy Pinfari? Check. √
We even picked up the crappy spinner at Cannon Hill Park in Birmingham on the way.
I feel dirty.
That's it. Reputation in tatters. Over 20 years of sound, anti cre-ho principles, betrayed in a single moment of weakness.
I spent most of last night sobbing gently into my pillow.
That's all it takes, people. Just one day can take you from a healthy, respectable 3/4 on the cre-ho scale to a filthy, disgusting, shameless 6/7.
But on the bright side...... +4. Yay!
Newbies - you have been warned.
Was it there when I visited? No.Presumably then Tom, you've been there and whored the kiddy creds yourself? <checks coaster-count.com> Yep.
Although oddly, you seem to have focused on the filth and skipped the one cred that you said had some, cred.
What's that about?
Edit: I could also argue that any true enthusiast would know how to spell Reverchon.
Bo, zing, bullseyyyyye, back o the net, in your face, GUT-TED FOR YOU!!!
Sounds higher than a six to me, fwiw. :-DI'm probably a 6...
I count credits.
Looking through my Excel spreadsheet, 15% of my credits are kiddie credits.
I have ridden eight Boomerang clones.
I have ridden six SLC clones.
On my last trip I went a bit out of my way driving to Emily's place to get the kiddie credit at Colasanti's Tropical Gardens.
I count "pseudo credits" that Coaster-Count doesn't list in its "Strict" count, such as alpine coasters and Pretzel gravity dark rides.
I've done my fair share of pleading with ride ops to get kiddie coasters; I've become a pro at talking Kings Island ride ops into letting out of towners get Great Pumpkin Coaster.
I have visited parks fully expecting poor ride quality and still rode all of their coasters.
There are three kiddie credits in my home state that I do not have.
Michigan's Adventure is five hours from me, free with my CF pass, and I have yet to visit.
