It's about if you have a particularly special coaster as a milestone.

So Maverick, or TTD, or Nemesis, or Balder, or something just a bit special, you make sure your milestone in your count, matches a major coaster.

Some people like Ben are being ironic with the Log ride, but irony like this wore thin very quickly.

(The Scenic is a milestone coaster as it's the oldest in the UK, well, I reckon it's important anyway, if a bit crap :lol: ).

So where they your 25th? 50th? 1000th coaster?

If not, then they're not a major coaster at the same time you hit a milestone in your coaster count.

It's a pretty simple concept.

Example of a good response to this discussion:

Somebody intelligent who read the topic said:
Yes! I made sure that I'd done 99 coasters before Cedar Point last year, then bagged Maverick as my hundredth coaster. I think it's great to mark a special point in your count with a special coaster
A bad example would be:

1st: Enigma (Cannonball Express), Pleasurewood hills
My 50th will be at Lightwater Valley, or Flamingo land, so I will celebrate by buying the on-ride photo!
:p

I dont really care, cant even remember what my No.1, 50 or 100 coasters were. I prefer just riding anything, and I wouldn't hold out on riding a favourite coaster just to be able to place it at a milestone in my cc.
Agreed.

I can't remember mine either, so I just ride any coaster for 1st, 50th, 100th etc. But I think my first was the Dragon's Apprentice at Legoland. I can't remember my 50th.

It's amazing the amount of people who don't read what the <img> topic is about....
If you were talking about my post then I said I didn't care which was one of the points in Taylor's post.

If not, then I hope this post isn't spam. :)

I really have no idea. I'm not even 100% sure what the very first coaster was. Even now, I don't enter them in the order I've ridden them. I just don't see the importance at all.
 
I really haven't been paying attention. My count was over 50
before I started going on coaster websites. I don't recall what
number 100 was. For me, when I rode Top Thrill Dragster, that
was a memorable moment. At 400 ft., that was the one that
put me in this group of people who really care about these rides.

I suspect my first was clown coaster at Chessington, but I don't even remember that, I only know I went on it because my dad says I did. Was in '94.

I remeber my number 1, Runaway Mine Train at Alton. I also know my 62, Rollercoaster, a small Pinfari, and 68, Rattlesnake at Chessington, Landmark will be 100th.

But, on topic, I will hold something big for my 100th, I want to have something serious for that spot, and for that matter my 75th.

My first roller coaster was the Matterhorn at Disneyland, when I was around three. Thank God for low height restrictions!

My fiftieth (which, at this point is my largest milestone) was the Screamer at Scandia in Ontario, California. A basic Miler coaster, nothing super special, but hey that's that!

I'm at 78 coasters right now, only 22 more to go till the hundredth.
