Well since I last did this on the first page in 2008 I can add...

England - Storm, Swarm, 13, Kobra/Wild Asia, Saw (first public car brag rights hehe :) ). Probally something else... Smiler will be done when its ready.

States - Seaworld SD's Manta, Grand opening of Cars Land/Buena Vista Street including Racers and Mater. Never did Luigi. Can't forget Transformers!

I suppose you could count the Matterhorn remodel with new trains at a push.

Germany - Wodan!
