    1st - Scenic Railway, Dreamland ( Early to Mid 90's )
    50th - Big One, BPB ( Last Saturday )

    Count of 50 is rubbish, however it is a start and doesn't include a Go Gator or Big Apple yet!

    Saying that probably missed a few off in the count as i can remember going to certain parks back in 90's but not the rides exactly. Likes of Camelot, Pleasure Island in Cleathorpes, Southsea, Southend ...

    Sorry I haven;t posted for a while, but during that time I got
    #200 - Nemesis Alton Towers!
    Insane ride, so intense!!! The drop and everything flows so nicely and smoothly!

    I didn't realise until the ritual spreadsheet updating last night! I knew I was close to it, but hadn't realised THAT close!

    Good cred, that. I enjoyed it.

    Just want the last side...

    I recently hit #250 which I'll get to in a moment, but having searched back I'm not sure I've ever listed my milestones..

    1. Wild Mouse (BPB) - there may have been wacky worms before it but this is the first coaster I vividly remember riding, back in 1984 at the tender age of 7!
    100. Black Mamba
    200. Stealth - chosen specifically because it's roughly 200ft tall.

    Now on that note and knowing I'd hit #250 on my trip to Poland, my intention was to make Hyperion my next milestone, again because it's roughly 250ft tall. Unfortunately, being spited by 3 creds at Legendia a few days before meant that I could only get to #249 at Energylandia so I had to abandon that idea, and consequently my next milestone coaster was...

    250. Dinocoaster at Zatorland! :D

    Roll on 300...

    Nah it's perfectly respectable, more than the vast majority of the general population ever get to!

    You forgot to say RIP ;)

    Ouch there was only one cred running? Was it at least the good one?!

    Wait...what now? Steeplechase Yellow was running? When was this? I've never seen that in any of my four visits and presumed it was semi-permanently closed.

    Were they running all three horses then?

    I think 600 will be the red side, just for giggles.

    He still needs red? What a rank amateur. Red's the easy one.

    I'd say green is easier to get. Of all my visits to BPB it's always open.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think Steeplechase Yellow is the far right side, which is the only side of Steeplechase I presently have. It was certainly running when I went in August 2018!

    Yes, it's the right-hand one. Fingers crossed it'll be open on my next visit on 31st. July.

    (I won't cry if it's down though).
