SAW: the Ride after a 3 1/2 hour wait which funnily enough, wasn't worth my time in the end. Would probably explain my pure distaste for it.

This is a pretty interesting thought exercise. 2010, 2012, and 2016 all involved big trips planned around some of the listed rides. I'm not surprised in the dip from 2013-2015 - going to college in Michigan's Upper Peninsula and working internships really hindered me from traveling to parks outside the great lakes region. I think I only gained 23 creds during my four years in college. Lastly, I did not list them, but I noticed that I have quite a few rides which I've ridden in their sophomore year.

Ope, looks like I didn't even finish updating last year's list:

2018
Steel Vengeance - Cedar Point
Cruiser Coaster - Craig's Cruisers Family Fun Center
Sea Viper - Palace Playland
Wipeout - Palace Playland
Tantrum - Darien Lake
Slinky Dog Dash - Disney's Hollywood Studios

2019

Interestingly, last year's adds to the list were mostly coincidences! Steel Vengeance was a given, but the rest were either convenient +1s or unplanned.
