Hi guys. I know I'm jumping the gun a little with this topic, as there's still nearly 4 months left of 2018. But as I visited what will most likely be my last theme park of the year yesterday, I decided to make this topic to basically sum up my 2018 and to hear about how some of your 2018s have been. So, I'll get the ball rolling with my 2018 in review: Matt N's 2018 in Review Coaster count at start of 2018: 39 Coaster count at end of 2018: 56 New credits obtained in 2018: 17 New parks visited in 2018: 2 (Drayton Manor, Blackpool Pleasure Beach) Days spent in a theme park in 2018: 8 (4x Alton Towers, 2x Thorpe Park, 1x Drayton Manor, 1x Blackpool Pleasure Beach) Favourite new ride of 2018: Icon at Blackpool Pleasure Beach Favourite new park of 2018: Blackpool Pleasure Beach Highlight of 2018: Visiting Blackpool Pleasure Beach for the first time after years of wanting to go. Biggest surprise of 2018: Would either have to be our visit to Drayton Manor, which I only knew about 8 days before we went, or my first ride on Wicker Man, which was far better than I expected! 2018 has truly been a fantastic year in theme parks for me, especially when compared to my 2017: Matt N's 2017 in Review Coaster count at start of 2017: 38 Coaster count at end of 2017: 39 New credits obtained in 2017: 1 New parks visited in 2017: 1 (Legoland Windsor) Days spent in a theme park in 2017: 3 (2x Alton Towers, 1x Legoland Windsor) Favourite new ride of 2017: Dragon at Legoland Windsor (by default) Favourite new park of 2017: Legoland Windsor (by default) Highlight of 2017: Spending my 14th birthday in Alton Towers. Biggest surprise of 2017: Dragon at Legoland Windsor was surprisingly good! So, how have you guys' 2018s been? As I said above, 2018 has been a fantastic year for me, and here's to a great 2019!
