Does Traumatizer at Southport and Infusion class as 2 creds?
Clutching at straws I know!
Otherwise it's only 3 for me. Odyssey, Kumali and Infusion.
Off to Walibi and Energylandia this summer, so will have 5/6 by September.

So basically 10 different boomerangs and 10 different suspended coasters. How symmetrical! Should be riding the GIB at Silverwood later this year so I'll need to find an SLC to even things up again 🤢

I'd quite like to try an Invertigo. At least once!

Out of my total 65 coasters, I've presently done 1 SLC and one Family Boomerang, so my list presently stands at this:
SLC
  1. Infusion (Blackpool Pleasure Beach)
Family Boomerang
  1. Accelerator (Drayton Manor)
Not sure whether to feel proud or ashamed that I'm yet to ride a standard Boomerang...

I'm gonna stick with my previous system of namimg the parks rather than the rides as most of them have dull generic names (not least today's addition "MP-Express" - come on Movie Park, you can do better than that!).

Boomerangs
Wonderla Bangalore
Walibi Belgium
Walibi Holland
Wiener Prater
Pleasurewood Hills

Standard SLCs:
Southport/Blackpool
Walibi Belgium
Walibi Holland (prototype)
Heide Park
Terra Mitica
Gardaland (extended)
Energylandia
Movie Park

Other SLCs
Flamingo Land
Fantasy Island
Happy Valley Chengdu

I'm only missing that obscure Spanish one now to complete all European SLCs. Not going to go out of my way to achieve that acomplishment though!

Family Boomerangs
Drayton Manor
Paultons
Energylandia
Phantasialand

GIBs
Parque Warner Madrid.

The SLC at SFNE is great with the new trains. It's still a bit rough but there's no headbanging so it's much more enjoyable.

0 of either! How bland of me.

The only park I’ve been to that has an SLC is Blackpool Pleasure Beach, and I was 7 & new to big rides at the time so didn’t brave Infusion. I’ve never been to a park that had a Boomerang.

I’d actually like to go on a Boomerang. I haven’t heard many good things about them but they look fun. I always like going backwards. It’s the little things.
